Chic Pixel for Extra Life 2013

Those of you who have been following the site for a while may remember that I did something last year that few gamers attempt: 25 hours of playing video games straight (for charity!). Well, as the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, so I’m going to give it a shot again this year!

Not only was I able to knock off a game from my backlog last year, but with the help of readers like you, I was able to raise above and beyond my original fundraising goal of $200 for the Vermont Children’s Hospital! This year I’m leading the team at, and we’re going to need a big push to reach our goal of $2,000. Please consider chipping in, as every donation, no matter how small, counts! You can find my donation page here or click on this fancy badge:

Now, I’m very excited to test out a new feature this year – an embedded stream! If all goes well, you should be able to watch me play right here:

About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.
