There’s less than two weeks until the the troupe rises! Let’s join together to take on the gloom and save the kingdom!
It’s officially Nintendothon season, GFGC! We are so excited to finally be bringing you our next Nintendothon marathon this summer after nearly a year away. Similar to last summer’s Nintendothon event, we’ve worked hard for several months to craft an exciting and refreshing twist to the Nintendothon formula themed around The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Now, with only a few short days left, we believe there’s no better time than the present to finally pull back the curtain and show you some of what you can expect to experience at Nintendothon Kingdom!
Let’s start by taking a quick look back at the story that was told in our reveal trailer only a few weeks ago:
In an age long, long ago, there existed a kingdom that basked in the shine of a golden sun. That was, until one fateful day, where the sunshine faded away. A sinister gloom descended upon the kingdom, sending the people into despair. The thick, swirling mire held onto the kingdom tight, and soon it began to feel as if there was no hope at all. That was until a group rose above the mist of despair, and shouted into the desperate air.
This Troupe of Heroes utilized their power of unity, bringing the denizens together to fight back against the gloom. As the sea of people began to flow, the gloom’s effects began to slow, and soon, the kingdom was basking in light once again. Just as the people sought to shower their saviors with praise, the Troupe of Heroes disappeared into the haze. This story was passed on through generations, with hope that far into the future, when the gloom returned to unleash its dread, the Troupe would rise and use their power of unity to save the kingdom once again.
This summer, the gloom has returned and is threatening the kingdom once again. It’s up to all of us, the new Troupe of Heroes, to fight back against the gloom and save the kingdom once and for all!
While overcoming the gloom may seem like a daunting and impossible task, we thankfully did not come ill-prepared. This summer, our donation incentive model, Abilities, allows your donations to NAMI to power-up the stream and increase our strength against the gloom! Without further ado, let’s dive into all of the details of our brand new donation incentive model!
“With the ability to combine at your fingertips, the possibilities are endless!”
This summer, several classic Nintendothon donation incentives are getting combined together with our brand new Fuse ability! These donation incentives put the power in your hands to shake up how punishments play out during the marathon!
The Fuse ability takes advantage of the Tiltify “Polls” system. When making a donation to the campaign, you can put it towards an option on a poll. Select which fusion you find more interesting and help it win out over the competition!
As an example, one classic Nintendothon incentive being fused this summer is Hot Sauce Shots. When contributing, you’ll be able to put the amount of your donation towards either making the incentive sour (by adding lemon juice), or sweet (by adding Kool-Aid Mix). The option with the most raised at the end of the poll is the winner!
Each fuse poll will only be up for a limited time, so be sure to get your donation in when you see them pop up!
We can’t wait to see what you decide to fuse together this summer at Nintendothon Kingdom!
“With the ability to randomize in your hands, our future is up to you!”
The classic “Spincentive” system from events’ past returns once again at Nintendothon Kingdom as the Ultrawheel ability!
For any donation of $10 or more to the campaign, you can activate the Ultrawheel, sending a spinner full of smaller-scale bonus incentives spinning around. Round and round, the Ultrawheel goes, where it stops, nobody knows!
Non-donors will also once again have an opportunity to activate the Ultrawheel! By actively watching Nintendothon Kingdom, you will gain a currency called Impact Points in the Twitch chat. These can be exchanged for a free activation of the Ultrawheel at any time!
With the power of Ultrawheel, our future is up to the whims of fate at Nintendothon Kingdom. We can’t wait to see what you spin up for us!
“Strengthen the Vow of the Troupe and reveal hidden unifying abilities!”
By reaching Milestones in our fundraising campaign, the Vow of the Troupe will strengthen, unlocking additional bonus incentives!
