I'm not good at commentary, especially since my main game is so fast paced but I think I will still give it a shot and if my game gets chosen I will practice my commentary. Thanks for the response 🙂

Having a friend or other runner to commentate for you is also allowed in a Discord call. They will be able to see the game with minimal delay (2 seconds or something). And otherwise, it's great practice for if you want to have a good stream going on

another quick question, I will still be in school during this time, what happens if I can't make the time given to me?

 
  RiekeltRiekelt

Hey. We'd like that runners be sure that they will be able to make it. You've submitted some pretty detailed timezones where you said you might be available, and we'll put your run in that timeslot. If the schedule has been made, and you see something that doesn't fit, please ring the bell asap. This to make it a good experience for fellow marathon-runners.

If something happens very last minute, please also pass that on ASAP. The most optimal way would be pinging either Milk, myself or any other of the Senior crew in the Discord.

Ive Submitted a game yet it isnt showing in the Submitted runs section is there a reason for this? 🙂

 
  RiekeltRiekelt

Did the page give an error message? (Like a field not properly filled in)

There shouldn't be a reason it isn't shown in the page.

Submitted a bunch of games. As riekelt might know, if you ever need more, you need only to ask Keepo

Sick. Can vouch for Crrool being a marathon saver PogChampGold

The game I submitted for the marathon is now an official game on this website itself and also someone is trying to beat my New Game WR along with the fact that I can now livestream via Beam without any issues with this computer lagging so you can count me in for availability for the time I want to do the run at 🙂 Must've been the best timing for my laptop to allow me to stream and get my game official so wish me best of luck!

Last few days to get submissions in!

 
  SheppardKillerSheppardKiller

it's a good thing I submitted just before my spring break started so I expect some chance but then again anyone has a chance to be seen hopefully. 😛 I'm gonna be really checking in on schedule a lot more just to see if something happens same thing for AGDQ and SGDQ. XD Good luck to all the runners who might make it on the list!

Also, a quick reminder that everyone should join our discord, as it will kinda be our main platform for communication.

I'm assuming if your run is in phase 0 you won't be in the event?

 
  RiekeltRiekelt

You are quite correct.

If you didn't get in, you can always try next time.
However, during the marathon, some runners might drop out, so there is still a chance to be in the marathon. Join the discord for this (and don't surpress @everyone)

 
  SheppardKillerSheppardKiller

wow so my first submission into any marathon and I get rejected... just wow like seriously? I saw milk leak the image showing my run in white and not red like the people above and below me and then I see the updated list and now I'm not in phase 1. wtf man and I just worked hard getting this new game set up and I know there might be a chance if some runners drop out but I doubt it will happen 🙁 FeelsBadMan

 
  DarQ_MassacresDarQ_Massacres

hey man, I was kind of upset when mine didn't make it in, but not everyone can get into it man, if they did the event would be too long. you just gotta keep your head up and try again next time.

There's no easy way to say it but I read both of your guys' submissions and honestly I can't blame milk & co. for dropping the runs.

@SheppardKiller your submission seems... incomplete, especially for a game that's not really known. For example "I think this would be a very interesting game to speedrun" how? Is it a fast paced platformer, puzzle game, FPS, what makes that run something that would interest viewers in watching, like cool strats or glitches. Check Hardrocker's Chroma Squad submission, havrd's Valley submission or Gyoo's Splasher submission for solid exampled.

@DarQ_Massacres there's a few key words you want to avoid in submissions, such as "I don't have a very good time" and "honestly I don't know, this is a meme game". Think of submissions like an interview: you're trying to highlight why your run is a good fit over anyone else's runs for the marathon. Other than lying, you need to say whatever you can to make your game as appealing as possible, and leave out anything that could be seen as bad ("this game has long cutscenes" or "run killing RNG" or the likes) especially for lesser known games.
