StruggleThon is a non-public Retro Speedgaming On-Site event. For a whole weekend we will run, race or maybe even learn our favorite speedgames on stream.
The event will take place from November 16th - November 18th 2018 and will be streamed on twitch.tv/bambooshadow. The main language on-stream will be German, but we also speak English - so you may also speak or ask your questions in English.
Greetings from BambooShadow, RealCritical, and the Strugglers
If you want to support the event, we are happy for donations. The first 500€ will be used to cover the costs for StruggleThon 2018 and for hopefully future projects (StruggleThon 2019?).
In case we reach 500€, every exceeding Euro will be donated to the Deutsche Krebshilfe - a foundation that supports "projects to improve prevention, early detection, diagnosis, therapy, medical follow-up and psychosocial care".
StruggleThon 2018 is a spontaneous speedrun weekend between friends from the speedrun scene. The event takes place in private rooms and is therefore not publicly accessible. In addition, everything is planned last-minute and put together. The idea is to come together as a scene and to have fun.
After StruggleThon 2018 we will check if there will be potential for StruggleThon 2019 and how it will look like - depending on whether we and whether you liked the event. In the long run we'd like to have a larger and public speedrun event in southern Germany, as a counterpart to the already existing events "Speedcon" in Potsdam and "Zocktoberfest Marathon" in Cologne. Whether this can be realized depends on many other factors that are currently not foreseeable. Cooperation with e.g. ESA would be conceivable - should there be motivation from both sides. Let's see where the journey will lead us...
