Well howdy hey, everyone! It’s been an absolutely amazing month of spooky shenanigans so far. I’ve been getting to experience classic horror games that I hadn’t played before, watching classic horror flicks that were popular before I was even born, and stuffing my face with candy corn (I know, I’m polarizing). October is always one of my favorite months of the year, where I get to fully embrace how much I love all things spooky, which I already do throughout the year, but October just makes it so much more special. To make it even more exciting, I’ll be closing spooky season out with a fright-filled, spooktacular weekend full of raising money for charity!
On Saturday, I’ll be participating in a bi-annual event called Scareathon, where the organizers gather a large cast of Twitch streamers to have spooky gaming content going all weekend long for charity! They chose to raise money for Gamers Outreach, an amazing organization that provides accessible gaming rigs to kids in hospitals. I’ve been a part of this event before a few times, and I always have a blast meeting all the people who are a part of it, so I am absolutely looking forward to spooky games, silly incentives for donations to charity, and what I’m sure will be a lot of laughs while we play a fun, spooky indie game called Night Ripper made by Puppet Combo, quite possibly one of my favorite indie game companies.
Then on Sunday on my Twitch channel, we will be continuing the fundraising for Gamers Outreach with an ENTIRE playthrough of Silent Hill 2, one of my absolute favorite games of all time! I’ve played through this game, like…three times now, I believe? I’ve also watched several playthroughs of this game, and even had an article I wrote published on this particular game. So my passion for it is…a lot. It’s very much there.
I’m also planning on being in costume both days, so it’s gonna be a weekend full of the absolute most fun Halloween shenanigans! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am.
If you’ve got some time, and want to enjoy some scary games with a group of cozy people, I’d love to see you during either of the streams! Even if you’re not able to donate to the charity, simply being there helps out SO much when it comes to discoverability, so that more people can find the stream.
Do you have any fun plans for Halloween? Let me know in the comments!
