DAY 12! DAY 12! DAY 12! Yes, it’s finally here! Day 12 of Obligatory Ice Level Day! The Mario marathon is on December 14th, when we’ll be raising money for the Make A Wish Foundation! Tune in for some awesome games and sweet prizes, like handmade wooden item blocks and a Wii U Deluxe! C’mon, don’t wait! Get the word out! This marathon’s bound to be a classic! It’ll be something people talk about for some time to come. So we need to bring out the big guns for this one. That’s why today’s ice level is Cool, Cool Mountain, from Mario 64!
Here’s a trip down memory lane. The montage was awesome to make, I relived the week.
I can say without a shadow of a doubt that the Mario Marathon was by far my favorite marathon. It’s bitter sweet that it’s all over. Bitter to say good bye to all of my friends and the fun we had, sweet that we raised nearly $60,000 for ACT Today and I can now rest. There’s no way we could have done this without all of you; Donators, promoters and viewers.
A humongous thanks goes out to Fangamer.net. What they did for our marathon and ACT Today was phenomenal. Nearly $10,000 was raised through their T-shirts, AMAZING.
I’m currently working on a commemorative video that will be posted late tomorrow and Tuesday at the lastest.
The intro screen is interactive and will give you several different options. As of right now GG.Scythe has finished the Mario Marathon trailer, that’s the only option that is viewable. The “about TSG” , “about ACT Today” and “Special Guest” are all a work in progress.
He did a wonderful job, enjoy!
Video after the break. Available in 1080p!:
The awesome peeps over at Fangamer are once again teaming up with us for the Mario Marathon. They are putting out a new Mario inspired shirt design called “Pipe vault”.
