robin-hood-This Saturday (17th October) an international tweetathon is going to ‘fire an arrow round the world’ to celebrate International Robin Hood Day and you can get involved.

How you ask? Computer Science graduate Sean Oxspring has been working alongside Hitpoint Games to create an innovative game via Twitter that will aim to shoot Robin Hood’s arrow right round the globe through the power of people’s tweets.

Launching at 12pm this Saturday, all you have to do is tweet with the hashtag #robinhoodday

Every 5 minutes an arrow will be shot, so make sure to watch it fly here.

DON’T FORGET: The more tweets that are sent the further the arrow will travel.

Hitpoint Games has teamed up with a party of legends including Robin Hood, the Pied Piper of Hamlyn, William Tell and the Sheriff of Nottingham at the National Videogame Arcade in Hockley, Nottingham city centre to kick the tweeting off.
So get all your friends, family, dogs and cats accounts and don’t forget to tag #robinhoodday so you can be added as one of Robin Hood’s Merry Men.
Let us know if you’re getting involved!
