So here’s the deal: for the rest of Matt and Cam’s shift, until 10am, get your creative juices flowing and draw a mashup of a game that Cam has played and a game that Matt has played on their respective streams. Submit your work to [email protected].

Games that Cam has streamed:

  • XCom
  • Civilization 5
  • Alien: Isolation
  • Thief: The Dark Project
  • Master of Orion 2
  • Civilization: Beyond Earth
