For the ninth consecutive year, one of the most beautiful video game initiatives in France is back for new back and forth in a good mood. We know the dates and the godfather.
In a month, things are going to happen, let me tell you. On November 19, 20 and 21, it will be the return of the Desert Bus de l’Espoir. Pioneer of the French video game charity marathon, inspired by the Canadian Desert Bus for Hope, the event will run on Twitch for its ninth edition. This year again, it is for the Petits Princes association that dozens of guests will come to pilot the virtual bus of the game “the most boring in the world”. The obvious goal will be to motivate spectators to surpass the record for donations intended to help sick children achieve their dreams. This is 60,080 euros. Digital Leisure, the organization, hopes to exceed 70,000 euros.
A godfather we like to listen to
For this new edition, the Desert Bus will once again invite personalities to come and animate, chat or take up challenges. No list has yet been revealed. But we know the godfather of 2021. To succeed Brigitte Lecordier and Manu Lévy, the actor Donald Reignoux. A good friend, then. And a hell of a pilot. It’s always a pleasure. It will therefore be the (Ti) chug on the (Spider) Web.
Spectators will of course be able to win gifts. This could be miniatures, games, collector’s editions, and even consoles. A donation on this page will give a chance to draw. Finally, note that before this crazy semi-face-to-face weekend, a Warm Up will be held. From November 5 to 12, the Twitch channels of partner streamers will activate, just to heat the engine.
And you wonder if a member of the editorial staff will be there? To find out, you’ll have to see …
