TSG’s Humble Indie Marathon

We will have additional indie streams on the evenings of Tuesday April 29th, Wednesday April 30th, Thursday May 1st and Friday May 2nd.  This will be our 32nd marathon in TSG’s 6 year history and will benefit Direct Relief. TSG is partnering with the Humble Bundle team to deliver our very own weekly sale bundle. The sale will take place April 24th- May 1st. Several guest indie developers will Skype with us throughout the event and even answer some of your questions. We will be giving away indie themed prizes to our viewers and donors.

This will be one of our most unique and exciting events. Be sure to check out all the fun on TSG.tv . We can’t wait to see everyone in the chat!
