Geek & Sundry launched a new series Thursday called Unplugged that features established YouTube gaming talent re-enacting video game scenarios.
The series is sponsored by Microsoft and will include the Surface Pro 2 tablet in every episode. It’s hosted by Ashly Burch, an actress and video game veteran who creates videos for and stars in the Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’? YouTube channel. Special guests include Justine Ezarik of iJustine (pictured) and Clinton Jones (Pwnisher), who take part in challenges based on well-known video game franchises.
Produced in-house by Geek & Sundry, the show will stream on the company’s YouTube channel as well as GeekandSundry.com.
Founded in 2012, Geek & Sundry is spearheaded by prominent geek figureheads including Felicia Day (The Guild, Supernatural, Dr. Horrible) and Wil Wheaton (Star Trek, The Big Bang Theory). Microsoft liked the tech-oriented slant to the content that the company produces and approached them for a collaboration, which is how Unplugged was developed.
Upcoming episodes will include re-enactments of Need for Speed, War Thunder, League of Legends, and Farming Simulator.
