Hey everyone, Vernon here.
I just finished Amnesia: the Dark Descent a few minutes ago. I completed the game at 2:15 AM with a total playtime of 8 hours and 15 minutes. Tomorrow night starting at 6 PM PDT, Tim will start Amnesia again and try to beat my playtime.
Today we raised over $500 for camp to bring us to a grand total of $814. This puts us $186 away from our goal of $1000. Hopefully we can reach it during Tim’s playthrough.
I’ll try to throw together a video or two in the morning of one of the scares. Hopefully it’ll drum up a little more interest in our event.
Thanks again to everyone who helped out tonight, especially the people who helped me get through the harder puzzles. See ya tomorrow!
Firstly, S2C spent a very small amount of time on the front page of r/gaming on Reddit. As a person who spends 90% of his internet time on this website, I’d like to say that this is a huge honor. Thanks for the support, Reddit!
Secondly, S2C was featured in several great gaming blogs: Joystiq, Ripten, and Next Life Gaming. I’d like to take this moment to thank the gaming news media for helping us to spread the word.
The event starts tomorrow at 6PM. Super stoked.
Great news everyone!
We’re adding a new incentive to donate to our event. If you donate, you will get special access to an IRC channel specifically dedicated to helping the Scare-er scare the Scare-ee.
That makes sense, right?
It should add some extra comedy to the event.
Also I’ve added a press page to the site. Please, please write about us.
Special thanks to Arielle, Farah, Peanut and an anonymous donator for their help bringing us past the $100 mark. Let’s keep up the momentum!
Our fundraiser is now the latest entry at GameMarathons.com!
Tom, the site admin, had this this to say about our event:
If this turns out like I think it might, you could very well be raising the bar for what goes on at these marathons, this sounds like one of the best ideas in a long time. I haven’t played Amnesia and it’s probably not a game I would have looked at otherwise, but now you got me looking forward to this!
I’ve got a good feeling, guys.
Firstly, Tim and I would like to thank you wholeheartedly for visiting this site and hopefully donating to our cause. You can find out more about us in the About section of our page. On the side bar, you’ll see some helpful links regarding Camp Kesem, Camp Kesem UCSD, and the Scare to Care fundraiser. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us.
We’ll be using this site to blog our progress and keep you all updated in the days leading up to our event, which takes place from May 28-29.
That’s all for now. Keep being awesome, Internet.
