Your Corps is an innovative initiative in the South Island that specializes in networking computer systems in order to play multiplayer video games with peers congregating within the same room.
We provide the platform for young video game enthusiasts to exercise their favourite hobby while participating in an authentic, social atmosphere. The groups run in Gore, Invercargill, Queenstown, Timaru and now we want to launch the community initiative in Dunedin!
Using our crowd-sourced funding we invested in the equipment to run sessions for up to 20 young people so they can enjoy gaming in a healthier, more social way - thus giving young people not interested in traditional sports, a place to learn the skills of teamwork and enjoy mutual hobbies with their peer group outside of school.
Now, with the support of Electric Kiwi and Otago Polytech, we bring this social gaming experience to Dunedin as part of TechWeek 2019!
NOTE: We can accommodate 20 players at computers but have space for more people to watch so feel free to drop in if you'd like to get a feel for these events, watch your family/friends take part, or speak to James about bringing these events to your stadium/community group/school!
You should be present for the whole duration of this event.
James Wards is the founder of Your Corps' - a community driven social development program first established in Southland, Gore. It is a fully mobile operation that provides alternative social activities for children, teenagers and young adults of the Southland community. 'Gore Corps' provides 20 computers, all the necessary equipment and expertise required to set up multiplayer video game events anywhere, for all ages. Participants then engage and interact with one another in the same room, on their own computer, playing a variety of different competitive and cooperative digital experiences. The initiative has now expanded rapidly out to Invercargill, Queenstown and Dunedin. James is also the Head of the Southland Regional Sub-Committee at New Zealand Esports Federation.
