Okay, this isn't really a "normal" entry into our animated stuff. This is a promotional video for our upcoming charity drive for Child's Play charity. The Shamoozal staff will be doing a 12 hour NES Marathon come 12/13/08, and we need all the support we can get.

We did a similar NES marathon rather low key during July and it was a nice success and a lot of fun. This time I decided to put together a little promo video for it, something we hope both Shamoozal fans, and fans of retro NES gaming will appreciate.

Many classic characters appear during the video, and I chose to base designs off some rather obscure and original artwork. Have fun watching, and I hope to see you there!

Haha, I can say with confidence that I'm very good at many NES games. At the last marathon I took down the original Contra with only 3 men in 20 minutes, so thats something.

And yeah, the running gag of that video is that everyone died on every game that was shown. Believe it or not, I actually had a hard time sucking that bad while making all those clips. :)

I have a question....

where is this event held at? Is it somewhere like a place, or is it going to be in here on the internet? I just want to know just in case maybe I can be there. So please tell me where this charity event is being held at. So anyways.... I love the animation, and it was funny too. I can't wait to be there (if I can). It's a nice thing that you are doing to help kids.
