For the past few months, the Oakland based Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment has been trying to raise money to get their museum started, though the fundraising hasn’t been going as planned. Their solution? Play video games. The museum is going to do a streamed marathon starting this Friday afternoon to raise money and get the museum open.

Hit the jump for more information!


The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (MADE) recently finished a Kickstarter Campaign, which barely met it’s goal, and probably was not as successful as MADE wanted it to be. Therefore, MADE planned a live stream beginning this Friday, April 27, to help raise money. They will be playing classics such as Ocarina of Time, Super Metroid, and Resident Evil 3. Their goal is to raise at least $1,000 for each game beaten, and if more than the goal of $20,000 is raised during the stream, they’ll beat a game for each $1,000.

If this interests you, head on over to their website on Friday, and consider contributing to help get this museum off the ground! (Alternatively, you can go to their streaming page when the event starts here.)
