You Don’t Want to See Me Gaming

No, not even for charity. I don’t do twitch. Watching me game would be remarkably soporific.

Jason, however, is running a gameathon to benefit Skeptech, which is mere weeks away at this point and still raising funds to cover the last of their expenses. And I will show up. What I’ll be doing during that time is up to the people who donate. Skeptech itself has some forfeits for donations listed:

Here are some initial incentives (more will be added):

  • $5 to be a member of our Organ Trail team.

  • At $200, we’ll buy Super Meat Boy and fail horribly.

  • At $1000, we’ll buy Amnesia, and play it at full-volume in the dark. You’ll be able to watch our horror on the hangout.

Jason has others, including one that raised my eyebrows. He’s brave, that one. I’ll just highlight this one instead:

For $20, you can jump into the Hangouts for 15 mins and try to go all debate-club on us, while we try to multitask and out-debate you while also staying on the course on Rainbow Road in Mario Kart or some other such outlandish gaming stunt.

As I said, you don’t want to see me game. There do seem to be people out there, however, who think I should debate. This is their chance. It’s cheap at $20. Somebody really ought to take me up on that.

    M can help you with that.

    Oh, man, if I had $1k sitting around…

    Just to clarify, since that’s not clear here — once we hit the $200 mark in TOTAL CUMULATIVE donations, we get Super Meat Boy. Likewise with $1000 and Amnesia.

    The $20 price tag is for an individual donation though. Likewise with my $100 offer for a 1200 word post on any topic, for or against, entirely at your discretion — I’ll even steelman positions I don’t normally take.

    $5 to be a member of our Organ Trail team.

    Please tell me that’s a typo. Please.

    This sounds intriguing.
