Discovery Digital Networks announced this week it is launching Super Panic Frenzy, a new gaming-focused brand featuring daily play-throughs and live streams, gaming news and original animations.

The launch is being promoted with product giveaways: when Super Panic Frenzy hits 100,000 and 250,000 subscribers, it will give away custom T-shirts from Discovery Digital Networks’ ForHumanPeoples merchandise brand, as well as a custom-skinned Xbox One signed by the Super Panic Frenzy crew.
