The first week has ended for the 2011 Play Well Cup, a 6-week Starcraft 2 tournament between local games developers and online/media companies, with all donations and proceeds going to the Child's Play charity. It's an exciting event instigated by James Croft who was inspired by the work of popular Starcraft 2 game casters on youtube as well as the distinct lack of local Starcraft 2 action.
The Play Well Cup is an Australian Starcraft 2 league where geeky AU companies battle it out in support of Child's Play — a charity raising money for the Mater Children's Hospital in Brisbane & the Sydney Children's Hospital.
The companies and organisations who've signed up for the tournament are:
- Liquid Interactive
- The Voxel Agents
- CBS Interactive
- Wicked Witch Software
- Endgame Studios
- SEGA Studios Australia
- Film Victoria
