In an effort to expand the fight against coronavirus, the upcoming esports reality show, GAMEMASTER has announced a partnership with MakerForce, a grassroots emergency response organization. The new collaboration will allow both organizations to expand their reach and provide PPE supplies to an even larger network of medical providers in need.
Makerforce Initiatives Include:
- MakerForce has distributed more than 30,000 units of maker-produced protective gear since March 2020
- MakerForce volunteers have donated more than 2.5 years of 3D print time in just 90 days
- MakerForce recently spearheaded delivery of 5000 masks and face shields to the Navajo and Paiute Nations
- MakerForce announced its active support of Black Lives Matter and has distributed thousands of masks to medics assisting protestors
GAMEMASTER 3D Printing and Distribution Program:
GAMEMASTER 3D printed an initial run of 1000 face masks, and is now continuing production based on demand.

With assistance from Opera Event, GameMaster has been providing a network for other “makers” around the country interested in helping to create and provide this vital equipment. In addition to the MakerForce.org site, GAMEMASTER.tv features an email portal 1) those in need of masks, and 2) those who can help 3D print masks and distribute them in their communities.
A GAMEMASTER brand partner, Micro Center, graciously provided the initial 3D printers and filament for the show’s efforts. The face masks being 3D printed by the Gamemaster team are the “Montana Masks” — a design available on the National Institute of Health website created by Dr. Dusty Richardson, Dr. Spencer Zaugg and Colton Zaugg. GAMEMASTER producers and crew are running the printing operations and handling requests and distribution of the masks.
Initially set to begin production this spring, GAMEMASTER features Wil Wheaton as the host alongside 12 amateur esports contestants from across the U.S. GAMEMASTER is being produced by Georgia-based Peach Maria Productions (pronounced muh-RY-uh), and will be sponsored by AMD.
