The best birthday gifts

Today, July 7th is my birthday. It happens to be on a day I don’t stream. But I was streaming yesterday, and while talking to some of you on stream, I mentioned it.

My wife sent me a message through Hangouts while streaming. This happens to be one of the few things that I might see on the computer screen while playing, so she already knows how to reach me, even when the cellphone is muted! She was asking which cake I wanted for my birthday… so while I was answering her text message, I was mentioning this to the viewers at the moment.

Thanks to all of you in the stream today extending your congrats on my birthday. I really appreciate it. But in addition to say thank you to all of you for yesterday’s stream, I also want to share two special gifts I got from two awesome followers.

A few days back Lucovich gifted me Monkey Island™ 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge™, directly through Steam. Lucovich, you already know you have a special place in my heart for being the first viewer that donated to the channel. Your “real estate” keeps growing stream after stream that you come online. And now I need to really thank you again for this awesome present. Thanks so much!

An awesome gift from Lucovich: Monkey Island™ 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge™

As you can see in the image above, this special edition was released originally 10 years ago, on the same day of my birthday! Nice coincidence!

The second very special gift, I received it yesterday during the stream. knfmkr74, a long time follower that I met while streaming The Long Dark, made a donation! Thanks a lot knfmkr! It’s very difficult to express in writing or with the proper words in stream how good it feels to receive this kind of support. It’s not about the economic value, but knowing that my stream is special enough for you to give a gift in acknowledgement. This was the moment:

And to all of my subscribers in YouTube and followers on Twitch, thanks a lot to come in every stream and watching the recorded episodes too. This hobby of mine has become so much more special having you there. Thanks a lot for your support. I love to see you coming in and hang around with me in the chat while we get some fun…

Also I’m really happy as from yesterday I passed the 50 followers mark. It seems this will allow me to apply for partnership with Twitch, so we’ll see how this works. Partner or not, I’m very happy and grateful to all of you that made possible for The Survivemer to grow little by little. Thanks a lot!

See you the next stream!

Just and old guy that found out how much fun it is to play games while streaming and recording let´s play episodes.
