Kongregate Extra Life 2017

DONATE

Kongregate has been building a gaming community of developers and players for ten years, and people are important to us. We're running an Extra Life campaign for the second time to help children in need by gathering as many donations as we can for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! We'll also be livestreaming our gaming marathon on our Kongregate Twitch channel!

Be sure to include your username in the donation notes, so that we know who to give any relevant rewards to!

Donation Bonuses

Here are the donation thresholds, and the associated bonuses with them! If you meet any threshold, you also get the bonuses from lower thresholds, though you only get one profile award.

  • Any donation: a cosmetic set of wings and halo plus a cosmetic dice pet in Bit Heroes!
  • $5+: A profile award on Kongregate, thanking you for supporting us in supporting children's hospitals!
  • $10+: Vote on a silly game for us to play! Go to Keywords section below for more details.
  • $20+: You'll be entered for a chance to win one of 15 sets of prize packs for some of our games like Animation Throwdown, Spellstone, and Office Space: Idle Profits, and maybe more! Go to the Prize Packs section below for more details.
  • $25+: Choose one of the four games to have a chance to play it with us during the stream! Go to the Keywords section below for more details.
  • $50+: We'll give you a shinier profile award on Kongregate, showing people just how kind and generous you really are! You'll also be entered for a chance to win one of five mega prize packs, including the in-game prize packs from the $20 tier plus Steam and Xbox One codes for our games, Kreds, and a year of Kong Plus! WOO! Go to the Prize Packs section below for more details.

For Top Donors

  • The top 3 donors will get to work with IAmTheCandyman and Jimp to design a Kongpanion!
  • The top 10 donors will get a t-shirt prize pack! We'll contact you via Kongregate for shipping info.

We'll also have various donation targets during the stream, like getting to be a character in the game or pick our meals or make us play with two people on the same controller, or maybe even play a game with us! Keep an eye out for any future reward updates here.

Keywords

We're also doing something new this year! Adding certain keywords to your donation can allow you to vote on certain things that we'll do or play on the stream. You are not required to do keywords, though, and if you'd rather not vote or play with us, that's fine too! What matters in the end is getting this money to the kids who really need it. Check out the following options!

If you donate at least $10, you can vote for which silly game we play. Your choices are Regular Human Basketball, Gang Beasts, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, or Mount Your Friends. Enter the following keywords in your donation notes (along with your Kongregate username) to vote. You may vote only once, even if you make multiple donations.

  • "dunk" is a vote for Regular Human Basketball
  • "slap" is a vote for Gang Beasts
  • "spaceship" is a vote for Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime
  • "climbers" is a vote for Mount Your Friends

If you donate at least $25, you can get into a pool of people who might get to play a game with us! You can choose whether to be considered for Overwatch, Don't Starve Together, Rocket League, or Jackbox. Enter the following keywords in your donation notes (along with your Kongregate username) to vote. You may enter for one game per $25 donation ($50 gets you two entries, etc), but you may only have one entry for each game.

  • "Hanzo" is an entry for Overwatch
  • "starve" is an entry for Don't Starve Together
  • "soccer" is an entry for Rocket League
  • "eggplant" is an entry for Jackbox

We'll also have various donation targets during the stream, like getting to name characters or make game decisions for us or making us play with two people on one controller or making us do other silly things, so keep an eye out for any future reward updates here!

For anything that involves "a chance" (game prize packs and playing games with us), we'll be choosing from all valid entrants, so be aware that you might not be picked! But in the end, we're all doing this for the kids, who will still appreciate your donations.

I want to know more!
