Super Nintendothon – Less Than A Week Away!

Hey all, it’s almost time! We’re officially less than one week away from the largest event GFGC has ever put on, Super Nintendothon! To get you all as super excited as we already are, we figured we would make some more announcements about the stream to commemorate it going live so soon! Without further ado, let’s get started!

Donation Polls

Want to shape the marathon experience for all to what you want? We now have a feature for you: premiering at Super Nintendothon is the Donation Poll! Donation polls offer you a chance to change a course of the event, provided that of course, your option ends up having a higher total than the other option(s)!

An example of a Donation Poll for an “All Attendees Nails Painted” incentive. When you donate toward the poll, you get to select your favorite option, and an amount to contribute!

We’ll have donation polls popping up all throughout the event, and whether they’re for selecting which attendees to subject to an incentive, choosing filenames for game playthroughs, or selecting a color of nail polish, we hope you find them fun to engage with!

 

Super Nintendothon Start Time Adjustment

We regret to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances, Super Nintendothon’s start will be delayed by one hour on July 19th to instead begin at 5:00PMCT. This means that the first game in our schedule will run for only three hours, ending at 8:00PMCT to shift our schedule back into its intended flow. This delayed start doesn’t mean we wont reach our 144-hour event length however! The stream will be extended later into the evening on July 25th to compensate! We apologize for this adjustment to our event’s start time, and hope that our extended hours at the end of the event are a sufficient solution.

 

Scheduling, Scheduling, Scheduling!

The supertask of scheduling for our six day event has officially begun! We are excited to announce that more than 50 unique first party Nintendo games will be played throughout the course of Super Nintendothon, with games lasting between two hours and six hours in length, as announced last week. The final schedule for Super Nintendothon is set to be released on July 18th, 2018, so keep an eye out for it on our Twitter, and campaign page!
