Final Fantasy Marathon to Raise Money for Autism
Proving that you CAN have fun while doing a good deed!
07.22.09 - 8:14 PM

A group called The Speed Gamers started a Final Fantasy Marathon on the 17th of July that will culminate on Friday the 24th. The Speed Gamers do video game marathons to raise money for charity. The Final Fantasy Marathon donations will go towards Autism Care and Treatment (ACT) Today. The goal of the marathon was to play Final Fantasy 1-12 with no tool assistance. A game feed is hosted on their site alongside a commentary feed and chatroom.

There is only 2 days left but here is the schedule for the week-long marathon and the results so far:

Games (in play order) and players
Final Fantasy I:Kilgard (Completed in 6 hours)
Final Fantasy II:Local (Completed in 22 hours)
Final Fantasy VI:Cross Warrior (Completed in 6 hours and 20 minutes)
Final Fantasy V:Phil
Final Fantasy III:Gwellin (Completed in 25 hours and 30 minutes)
Final Fantasy VII:Dustin (Completed in 24 hours)
Final Fantasy IX:Daniel L. & others
Final Fantasy VIII: Baltes
Final Fantasy IV: BlackDuck
Final Fantasy X: Rob & others
Final Fantasy XII: Britt & Chase

Final Fantasy XI will be played by an honorary participant "Nobody X" who has a form of Autism so the cause is very close to her heart. She will begin streaming the morning of Friday July 24th. There will be an extra feed showing her progress through the game.

So, head on over to their website for more info and to check out the live feed and donate to this worthy cause.
