This fundraiser has been cancelled because we didn't realize it could be illegal to run a raffle.

This is the post we just made on the Kotaku article: "Hey guys, I'm the Droz from the article. I wish I could blame it on something else (it was the desert madness! I swear) but the truth is we made a rushed decision based more on excitement than stopping and considering common sense. This wasn't completely thought through, but was done with 100% honest intentions. In our excitement and enthusiasm to get our video online as soon as possible we just never stopped to think about the potential negative outcomes.

"Our love for social media just took over our brains and honestly the least important thing to us was the money, we just believed it was a cool way to launch our company. What we were really hoping for was a mention on Kotaku (we just didn't realize the headline would be "Two Idiots Try Something Dumb")!

"A representative of Child's Play wrote us a very kind e-mail, and provided us with links to rules and regulations and best practices when trying to do something like this in the future. We've also reached out to EA to assure them we have zero future intentions of profiting from their competition in any way, and that we will not be transferring/gifting/giving/providing this copy of the game to any other party due to the unfortunate massive legalities.

"We do however super appreciate (yes, Joystiq, we really talk that way) the very kind words and support we've received from the people who did donate, and the patience and understanding of everyone who donated when it came to getting a refund and the contest being cancelled. We also have very real intentions of starting this video game company (but will be heavily Googling the potential legal troubles of any event we try in the future). So if you're at all interested in seeing how that works out, friend us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our YouTube channel for future announcements on our products to be released and fully sanctioned contests and fundraisers. We're not that bad of guys if you get to know us. :) "
