    Thank you SO MUCH for your support! With the help of everyone who donated and everyone who tuned in to UPickVG 5, we hit 166% percent of our goal. That's huge! To commemorate this amazing event, we're doing a few special things... #1) A BONUS STREAM! Tune in today at 4pm ET on twitch.tv/upickvg for the FINAL moments of Tail of the Sun! We were so disappointed that we couldn't beat the game (finally) during the last hour of UPickVG 5, so we're gonna play it until we beat it... tonight! Come see the dramatic conclusion of the save file that was started way back in UPickVG I! (Or UPickVG II - no one can really remember). That's at 4pm ET at twitch.tv/upickvg #2) Commemorative shirts and swag! http://www.upickvg.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/mammoth_womens_relaxed_fit_tshirt.jpg http://www.upickvg.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/upickvg_hoodie.jpg You can pick yours up at http://www.redbubble.com/people/upickvg/shop but only for a few more days! Since this campaign in closing at the end of the month, all shirt orders must be received by the end of day on June 29th to give us time to donate ALL the profits to this fundraiser. (You can also get 20% of EVERYTHING you buy in the shop by using the promo code "CREEPY20") There's also this other t-shirt design that's too cool for school, so we can't even sell it: http://www.upickvg.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/rollup_unisex_tshirt.jpg But if you tune in to our show tonight, we'll tell you how you can get it! (Hint: it involves donating another $5 or more to this fundraiser before it closes!) Hope to see you in the chat room tonight, and remember: the best way to keep up with UPickVG events is to sign up for email alerts! http://www.upickvg.com/2016/05/19/email-free-karma/
