It finally happened. A game hardware company created a drink specifically focused on feeding marathon gamers.
Sure, it sounds futuristic, but the description doesn’t exactly sound tasty: “RESPAWN is a powdered drink mix that helps to boost your focus when gaming. It comes in 4 different flavors, with 20 sticks in each box. We’ve also designed the RESPAWN Shaker so you can enjoy RESPAWN in its freshest state.”
But that’s just the start. The rest of the promotional text reads like something from a dystopian novel set in a fight until you win or die gamer commune. Here’s part of how they describe coming up with the drink:
“It was then, that the ultimate goal for RESPAWN was realized: a beverage to deliver alertness and focus, without the drawbacks of the sugar or taurine commonly found in energy drinks. Late 2017 saw our testing begin amongst gamers, and what started out as a community-driven passion quickly became something much bigger, in a commitment to improving the gamer ecosystem further.”
Now we get to see if gamers really are ready to drink this stuff up.
