The Lusipurr.com Summer Donation Drive has begun. From now until 20 August, donate your hard-earned (or not-so-hard-earned) fundage to Lusipurr.com. Why? To make Lusipurr suffer for your amusement, of course.
Lusipurr has never actually written a comprehensive and serious review of a game before, despite numerous requests for him to do so. Now, because the site needs to raise some money to fund game giveaways and layout assets, Lusipurr has generously(!) decided to auction off his first-ever review. Your donations are what will choose the topic of that review.
Every donation that is made between now and the end of the day on 20 August will push the donation thermometer in the sidebar ever higher. The higher it goes, the worse the game.
The thermometer starts at $0 and the best RPG–nay, the best game–of all time: Final Fantasy VII. Once the first threshold is crossed at $100, the bad games are on. From there on up, the games go from bad to worse–and from there to truly legendarily terrible, all the way up to the worst game of all time: Deadly Towers.
At the end of the donation drive, Lusipurr will play through and complete the game indicated by the thermometer, after which he will write a comprehensive review for the site along with a recorded (downloadable) version for the podcast. If this sounds like something you’d like to inflict upon him, get donating! Now is your chance to fill Lusipurr with increasing dread.

For every $100 donated by 20 August beyond the target of $1,000, Lusipurr will write an additional review of another game from the list (his choice, excluding FFVII).
Deadline Challenge 1: SUCCESS!!!
Because the half-way mark of $500 was reached before 1 July, Lusipurr will do an additional podcast review of Fable.
Deadline Challenge 2: SUCCESS!!!
Because the top-line goal of $1,000 was reached before 1 August, Lusipurr will write and perform a fifteen-minute long radio theatrical of the plot of FABLE, and the entire site will have an official FABLE week, replete with FABLE news, FABLE reviews, FABLE artwork, and a FABLE-themed podcast. FABLE-ULOUS!
Now there’s a gauntlet being thrown down. Happy donating!
