Wewana:Play, an award winning gaming app designed to help players set-up play sessions with friends, is attempting to break the world record for the longest gaming marathon. The current record holder is an Australian by the name of Okan Kaya, who played Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for 135 hours, 15 minutes and 10 seconds. A feat that took him over seven days to complete.
Wewana:Play thinks that their users can beat that and is hosting a record breaking event. Gamers that live near Birmingham, West Midlands, UK, or can find a way to get there, can audition to be a “record breaker.” The audition is an open casting call from which four potential record breakers will be chosen. The lucky contestants will be streamed live and have food provided to them before and during the event. They will also have the option to take a 10-minute break every hour, or may save up breaks for a longer one later on.
In a press release Wewana:Play emphasized how excited they are to be hosting something like this and all the fun things they will be doing throughout it all.
“This will be such a cool event to watch unfold. We will be having surprise guests and events on the hour, every hour of the entire challenge to help keep our challengers motivated and to also make it a really entertaining extravaganza.”
If you think you have what it takes to be a world record holder in gaming, the open call for contestants begins April 13. The event itself will begin the same day, lasting until Monday, April 21st.
