From walking to base camp and back in 3 weeks? I hope not. I'm neither wealthy nor stupid enough to climb that stupid mountain. I'm just walking to base camp have a look around (there will be nothing there really in november), walk up Kalla Patthar for some nice views and turn around back to Lukla.

my grandmother did that exact hike when i was a kid so you should be fine. pussy.

This didn't get the attention it deserves in the old thread. It's a slooooooow download though.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll see what I can do about hosting.

I'm really proud to be the first white woman from Texas to make a game based on the misadventures of a south Asian woman from Canada so I'll take a moment to give a bit more context. #Everest is a survival sim about climbing Mt. Everest where your objective is to get the highest score. You are scored based on how many likes the selfies you take in-game get, so you have to balance taking survival gear with dumb bullshit like guitars that will look cool in a picture. I tied the game to the real Twitter account @HashtagEverest so you can tweet all the pictures you take there from the game itself. The game is ~fully voice acted~ and is crammed full of as many retarded references to these threads as I thought I could get away with. It is my love letter to you, Everest death poolers, and it's free, so please check it out! http://slamfighter.com/download

Does anyone know a better solution to hosting the 185MB zip than mediafire?

This sounds fantastic and I'm not sure how I missed it. Maybe it should be in the OP? I'm going to download it now.

Also, Everest will eat 162 climbers this year.

Time for the full pitch


Get the runtimes
If you don't install the XNA runtimes linked on the download page the game won't work and it's not gonna be my fault.

Get Outfitted


You can't take any more than what you and your three teammates can carry between the four of you. With inventory space limited, bringing one item means leaving another. #Everest is a game of opportunity costs. you must balance your selection of the props that will get your selfies to earn the most likes with the equipment needed to survive the trek to the next great photo op.

Be unique...ish! Change up the colors of your gear and play as either a dude or a lady.
(Voice of Michael A. Zekas)
(Voice of forums poster Xibanya)

Make your mark

Time waits for no mountaineer in the unforgiving altitudes of the mountain locals refer to as "The Holy Mother." Take too long trying to get the perfect selfie and you won't be able to make camp before temperatures plunge at nightfall, but make sure you don't lose your cool because if you forget to pack anything back up, it will be lost on the mountain forever.

There's no garbage collection service on Mt. Everest. Carry your trash with you or dump it on the mountain. It's your choice.

Post selfies

The player character will be posting to their fictional in-game social media accounts throughout the game, but you can choose to post the pictures you take in-game to the player character's real twitter account, @HashtagEverest or connect your own twitter account and post to it through the game! How's that for meta?

Ziggy Starfucker's Guide to Chilling on Mt. Everest

Make sure each character has enough food, half rations reduce your health/stamina regen and running out completely will slowly deplete your health
Most status ailments will go away after enough rest. Having a medical kit in someone's inventory will help, resting at landmarks and especially the camps will help too
Having a sleeping bag for each character and a tent for the whole party increases health and stamina regen while resting
Having lots of crazy and heavy junk in your photo will get more likes and comments. Make sure you retrieve your junk before leaving the photo screen
Water bottles aren't necessary but prevent any chance of dysentery. Having a water treatment kit in someone's inventory reduces the chance of dysentery but doesn't prevent it
Wearing goggles greatly reduces the chance of snowblindness and retinal hemorrhaging, but wearing shutter shades for your photos gives more likes
Climbing around bottlenecks will probably get someone killed, but having climbing harnesses and ascenders equipped reduces the chance. Having fixed lines in someone's inventory and an icepick equipped on at least character helps further
Traveling at night reduces movement speed and increases chance of hypothermia. Try resting at landmarks until daybreak
You can get a rough estimate of your travel speed by looking at the walking animation speed of your party
Blizzards inflict damage and increase the chance of hypothermia and snowblindness unless you rest at a landmark with a tent or at a camp
Prevent/heal hypoxia with a breathing mask and oxygen bottles. By default oxygen use is disabled so you don't burn through your bottles at lower altitudes

btw to whoever is playing now, not sure if you know this but you can move the people around and you get points by having the items in the picture. If they're in your inventory when you take the picture they don't add anything to your score.

Chaps I don't want to sound schoolmarmish here but the posting itt looks to be motivated by envy and schadenfreude..which are natural initial reactions to the death of someone better off than you but I think quite damaging psychologically if they are indulged too often or too far (eg to the extent of making a computer game). So for your own mental benefit I'd suggest giving this thread a wide berth. And before you say it - yes, its all quite different to the post i made just now about a poster who died yesterday.

By the way I'm gonna put my money on 15 dead this year. A little more modest than previous years; my thought is that Everest will use this year to get everyone's guard down so that next year it can consume even more hapless climbers than before.
