Lost Planet 2:
Possible bid war for character selection. This game has quite the interesting character creator, and also allows you to play as a few characters from other games: Albert Wesker (Resident Evil 5 outfit), Frank West (Dead Rising) and bizzarely enough Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago from Gears of War. I have no idea why this is a thing, but it's pretty funny and completely cosmetic. I've also prepared an absolutely terrifying monstrosity of my own in the character creator, so that's an option too.

Transistor
Incentive: Show the Magic Button
The magic button is an inexplicable interactible object, put out of bounds, that does some weird things. Would only require me to have a nearby save file prepared, and a minute or two of explanation.

Alien Swarm
Incentive: Demonstrate a Brutal level
I'd like to showcase just how difficult Brutal is, by showing off the most difficult IL (specifically SynTek Residential). Probably 5 to 7 minutes of attempts before I would give up.

Elite Force 2 has a couple of eastereggs that i could show after the run, for example a short Mario-like sidescroller. Not sure if that would be something for a donation incentive though.

Two Worlds:

There's literally only one thing that can have a donation incentive and that's in the character creation.

It could be a huge bid war extravaganza:
Small Chest vs. Huge Chest
Short Body vs. Tall Body
Short Arms vs. Long Arms
Short Legs vs. Long Legs

or

I'll start the character creation from the smallest/shortest options, and the more money a body part gets, the larger/longer the body part goes (max. 100 dollars each)

Trials Fusion
Bid war: Upside-down vs. Right-side up

This bid war will decide who will play RedLynx Derby and in which way. There's a challenge in the track which flips the image to be up-side down and to save time we do the other two challenges too. Which forces us complete the track up-side down, while on the Roach (the 2nd fastest bike) and needing 5 faults or less. Zzzlol94 will play the track as it is, upside-down. TheBlazeJp will try to negate that challenge by looking at the screen upside-down, which will make it right-side up.

Incentive: "Who is SynDI?"
A minute long cutscene which maybe uncovers who she truly is.

The donation goal could be $100.

One Adjustment to the above, We will both comment our own section for the bid war 🙂

Trials Fusion
Bid war: Upside-down vs. Right-side up

This bid war will decide who will play RedLynx Derby and in which way. There's a challenge in the track which flips the screen to be up-side down and to save time we do the other two challenges at the same time. This forces us to complete the track up-side down, while on the Roach (the 2nd fastest bike) and needing 5 faults or less.

Zzzlol94 will play the track as it is, upside-down as It was intended by the game creators. "The True Way"

TheBlazeJp will attempt to rotate his head or Lie upside down to counterbalance the challenge which will make it right-side up. "The Fun Way"

The Wheel of Time:
Watch the after-credits scene

This can be done in two different ways; watch the credits or use a save file. Watching the credits provides a good build up to the scene, but I understand that spending 4 minutes for a 20 second joke might not be good for the schedule.

Donation goal should be fairly low.

I'm also going to post in the schedule thread about lowering the estimate a bit if you decide to go for the save file option.

To clarify for FF13, It will be 2 boss fights that will be up for blindfolded. The second should have a higher donation goal than the first. They're fairly close to each other, between 4 and 5 hours into the run.

Sonic Unleashed :
Short glitch showcase. There's a few really fun things I can show off. Including setup times it'll take up to 10 minutes.
Donation goal should probably be low-medium I think.

Edited my first post to adjust donation goals and give estimates

I hope, that this is the correct Thread:
Hi, Civilization from GermenchRestream here. We are in the final preparations for the restream and cannot wait for the start of the event.

Though we have one question: Is there a link with an overview regarding donation incentives and bid wars? I know, that there is a tracker mentionend in the FAQ, but so far I haven't found a link to it.

Thanks
Civ

Hey its RyuTech, Leader of GermenchLive (Restream of ESA right now).

We are working on a musical journey through all the games played on ESA this year to show that after the event,

Is it possible to add the Music% as a bigger Incentive Goal so not just the german but all viewers can see the Music% Live on Stream on the EuropeanSpeedsterAssembly Channel?

The Video is currently not ready yet but it will be ready to play at the end of the event.
