How Oblivion Should Have Ended
When you’ve been inside the radiation zone, you know there is a HISHE waiting for you. This is how Oblivion Should Have Ended.
So, how does this sound? You play an online video game, and just by playing, you help send books to Africa to help combat illiteracy. Now, what if that video game is an 8-bit-style Nintendo knockoff of The Great Gatsby? See what they’re doing here? Timely! Anyway, the creators of the game, The Barbarian Group’s Charlie Hoey and Peter Malamud Smith, have partnered with Out of Print Clothing, and if you go here and play, for every 25,000 points you earn, a book will be donated to Books for Africa. The goal is to distribute 10,000 books.
