Game Day Sponsors 2023
Game Day is nearly upon us! As I do every October, I'm asking you generous people to sponsor an hour of my 24-hour gaming marathon. As this will be my final year doing the Extra Life Marathon, I've decided I want to run through a bunch of consoles from my gaming history.
Each console will be given two hours during the marathon. Donors can sponsor one of these hours for $50 USD, and thus choose some console-appropriate games for me to play during their hour. Please include your choices in your donation note! First come, first served!
I'll do my best to accommodate all requests, but I reserve the right to change a request if I can't access the game or if it just doesn't make sense (basically I'm not going to subject myself to playing a litany of terrible games). Please see my list of available games here - https://www.backloggery.com/sewart

The Drive for $100k
This year will mark a major milestone for me! Over the last 12 years I've raised over $90,000 for the IWK Foundation through Extra Life. This year we aim for $100,000, and I know with your help we'll do it!
I've got multiple stream events planned to celebrate this momentous occasion throughout the year, with milestones based on fundraising totals and stream themes from early on in my Extra Life career! Check out descriptions below!
As always, thank you so much for your generous donations. I know we'll hit this high in 2023!
Milestone 1 - UNLOCKED
My first Extra Life marathon took place in 2011, where I managed to raise $770 while playing games on my beloved Sega CD. This year, $770 will unlock a Let's Play stream series for the Sega CD classic, Snatcher.
Milestone 2 - UNLOCKED
In 2012 I raised $1,539.84 while playing through one of my favourite games of all time - Lunar: The Silver Star. This year, milestone 2 will unlock a Let's Play stream series of Lunar. I'm looking forward to re-experiencing the game again with all of you!
Milestone 3 - LOCKED
In 2013 I raised a whopping $2,326.01. This year, milestone 3 will unlock a Let's Play stream series of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
Milestone 4 - LOCKED
In 2014 my theme was Sega Retro, and I raised $3,491.01. This year, Milestone 4 will unlock a Let's Play stream series of Magic Knight Rayearth for the Sega Saturn.
Milestone 5 - LOCKED
In 2015 I'd just received my Retron 5, and had donors request any game the system could play. In honour of this, when we raise $5,389.85 this year, I'll begin a Let's Play stream series of Gargoyle's Quest for the Nintendo Game Boy.
Milestone 6 - LOCKED
In 2016 I busted out the trusty ol' NES for my charity marathon. We raised $8,041.34, and I remember breaking down in tears when that final donation came in, as I was so sure that $8k was an impossible goal for my little channel. This year, Milestone 6 will trigger a Let's Play stream series of Final Fantasy in honour of that amazing moment.
Milestone 7 - $100K - LOCKED
As of Jan 1 we need to raise $8,240.48 in order to have collected $100,000 total for the IWK Foundation over the course of my years participating in Extra Life. I am so excited to hit this amazing number. Stay tuned to this space for further description of this milestone reward!
