As well as announcements from developers, you can also expect "candid conversations" with various prominent figures in the gaming industry, many of whom have worked on classic FPS games. 3D Realms says luminaries like Cliff Bleszinski, American McGee, John Romero, and Tim Willits will be present at the virtual event, as well as major FPS voice actors like Duke Nukem's Jon St. John and Blood's Stephan Weyte. You'll also be able to catch up on the progress of projects like SCP: Blackout, Fallen Angels, and Paradox Vector, among many others.

All proceeds from the sales of said merchandise will go directly to Child's Play.
