Have you ever played a terrible game, one so awful that you wondered how any good could come of it? Well, twins Dan and James Camilleri and their buddy Mark Dawes certainly have, and so was born the Lame Game Marathon, which began last year. The event is a 24-hour playthrough of the worst games out there, you know the ones. Superman 64, Naughty Bear, Halo Wars… But, it’s all for a good cause.
The LGM is a charity drive to raise funds for UNHCR’s East Africa Appeal, last year raising $5500. They’re looking to top that figure this year with the support of gamers everywhere. The event will be streamed live on 22 September, broadcast with two hosts and two ‘in the field’ reporters, including Leo Stevenson from Stevivor, along with plenty of videos from the gaming media and opportunities for viewers to interact via Facebook, Twitter and UStream.
This year, the Lame Game Marathon 2 will be raising money for UNICEF’s Sahel Emergency Appeal, to provide assistance to those affected by the drought in West Africa.
