I've said it a few times already, but I'll repeat it here-- Mini-Marathons were an experimental idea from the start. Nobody knew if they'd have the same appeal as our traditional Marathons, nor if we'd actually meet our goal.
The broadcasts ran every Friday night in October, making for a total of five Mini-Marathons. During those 53 hours and 25 minutes, we featured on the Ustream homepage twice (so whenever someone would visit Ustream, our program would play automatically). We recieved 27,712 views, a new record for us, over the course of these broadcasts. The total time viewers spent watching us was over 157 days!
The Mini-Marathons consisted of nine games, including: The Oregon Trail, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Banjo-Kazooie, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Pikmin, Shaq-Fu, E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial, Superman 64, and Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing.
We not only met our $500 goal for the World Food Programme, but exceeded it, ultimately raising $600. That's equal to 2,400 meals for starving people worldwide!
If you missed any of the Mini-Marathon and you'd like to re-watch it, it's all been recorded and can be viewed here (provided Ustream didn't eat any of the recordings when the feed crashed). I'll be standardizing all the titles for the recordings, so don't worry if they seem a little unorganized now.
