The SQH Stream Marathon 2018 is the brainchild of Amy “SummerB76” Tant. She thought it would be a swell idea for us to do a marathon stream for charity somewhere around Christmas time. And then it happened. Funny how that works.
When does it happen?
December 29th, 2018. We will be streaming back-to-back, meaning every streamer gets a two-hour slot to play their game of choice.
Where can I watch?
All of it happens on the Space Quest Historian channels on Twitch or YouTube — simultaneously. Pick whichever. It doesn’t matter.
Who are you and what games will you play?

Who is this for?
The reason we’re doing this is two-fold:
- To pay homage to the adventure games and narrative-driven games that came out in 2018
- To benefit Girls Make Games, a terrific organization that’s helping young girls become future game designers
Oh, and also because it sounded like fun. So, three-fold, I guess.
Every time you donate during the stream — using this tip jar — your donation will 100% go to Girls Make Games*. No profit to us. Everything to them. It’s a good cause, so we’re happy to do that.
* Maybe there’s some transfer fee bullshit involved that’s out of our control, so, realistically, we all know it’s not 100%. But we’re giving as much as the system will let us.
