KuroSRLKuroSRL Undertale All Yellow Credits 2:00:00 PC USA Link Undertale is one of the games that revolutionized the RPG world with its unique way of the combat system in having a nice way to do things. I feel like this should be shown at Insaniacs because of its playstyle that did open the door to the RPG genre as a whole 2 January 18th after 10pm central but before 3am center central January 19th from 12pm-12am
ArayaAraya Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee Any% 3:40:00 Switch EUR Link The new Pokemon game has shown big successes in both casual and speedrunning aspects since release. The combination of nostalgia and new mechanics and strategies in this game are amazing. For the aspect of speedrunning, the run shows high variance with all the catches required to complete the game. Because of this variance in the runs, it would be amazing to show a 4-way race on this first edition of the Insaniacs speedrun marathon! SLweed, Retrotato, Gymfreak739 10 Only availability is Saturday 19th for all racers to work. Preferably earl-mid afternoon for Gymfreak, but there is a lot of flexibility for us I think.
vysualsvysuals Hollow Knight True Ending 1:35:00 PC USA Link It's the category of the opening run of AGDQ 2019, and personally I think it's the most exciting and hype category in HK, a game that's very easy to understand for all viewers, whether or not they've played it. It has a lot of cool bosses, intense platforming sections, and lots of quickly reacting to enemy movements/RNG. A really cool category, and I have the WR in it currently. 2 All times in CST: January 18th: any time after 4pm January 19th: any time at all
MisterGigglesMisterGiggles Super Metroid 100% 1:27:00 SNES USA Link Super Metroid is a highly technical game that requires a lot of skill and practice to play at a high level, with a lot of interesting things that can be discussed throughout. I feel like I could go on, but there are few people within the speedrunning community who aren't aware of SM or it's complexity :) 5 The 19th would be ideal, as that is the only day I am guaranteed to be off of work. I am open that entire day, and can adjust sleep schedule as needed. The 18th after 6pm US Central Time is also fine, as I will be home from work.
CalmlamityCalmlamity Final Fantasy Mystic Quest Any% (US) 2:10:00 SNES USA Link It's a wonderfully fun old-school SNES RPG with fantastic music and gameplay. It works very well as either a solo run, and is also a great watch as a 2-4 person race as well. If preferred as a race, I would be happy to try and put out some feelers for a few more runners. The video started out as a first attempt at a marathon-style run, but ended up becoming a 2+ minute (3rd place!) PB at the end. I'd be happy to submit another video with music (not sure how it didn't come through in the video) and more dedicated to commentary throughout if needed. It'll be my first marathon run, I hope you'll accept! TBD, if needed 2 I can't determine at the moment exactly when I'll be available, but I do currently have a primary job that gives me the flexibility to ask off whenever I need. So essentially, whenever you need me, I'm available.
kerbis54kerbis54 Super Mario Odyssey Darker Side 3:30:00 Switch USA Link Darker Side is the best bang for your buck when it comes to super mario odyssey speedrunning. Unlocking the Darker Side of the moon requires collecting 500 moons (more than half of all of the moons available) so you see a large portion of the game without having to do any of the really slow stuff. The result is a very fast paced 3.5 hours showing off almost everything this fantastic speedgame has to offer. 1 Entire event

CountGoobyCountGooby Barney's Hide & Seek Game Any% No Controller 0:11:00 Genesis USA Link (This is a backup run submission) As Plato once said, "Man is nothing more than a purple dinosaur in our imagination." Barney's Hide and Seek Game is a true modern day epic about man's search for himself, life's journey, and friendship. We do this by not pushing any buttons and staring at a computer screen for ten minutes. 0 8am-11pm CST
minimini352minimini352 Luigi's Mansion Category Extensions All Gems 1:23:00 Wii JPN Link This category of Luigi's mansion is extremely underappreciated, it shows off a lot about the game without being filled with backtracking or RNG money locations. I am quite experienced with speedrunning the game myself, so I should be able to put on a good run. I feel that No OoB, the main category, is shown off in marathons all the time, and that some of the more nuanced categories like this one should have a chance in the spotlight. 3 I cannot do the run on the Friday however Saturday and Sunday should be fine for me. - 9am - 10pm GMT / 4am - 5pm EST
minimini352minimini352 Luigi's Mansion No OoB 1:00:00 Wii JPN Link Luigi's Mansion is a speedgame which can be easily overlooked, as it is much more about small optimisations rather than game-breaking tricks and skips. The No OoB category consists of simply beating the game as fast as possible without going out of bounds, and contains many small timesavers throughout the run which add up over time. I have also submitted the All Gems category, which, in my opinion, deserves more to appear in the Insaniacs marathon, however this category is safer as I have more experience in it. 4 I cannot do a run on the Friday, Saturday & Sunday: - 9am - 10pm GMT / 4am - 5pm EST
AestheticTerrorAestheticTerror Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Any% (No SSU) 1:00:00 PC JPN Link I have been a Vice City speedrunner since around the August of 2017 and I believe that I possess a lot of knowledge about the game and I feel confident that I would be able to explain every strat in detail on demand. Even though I am not the best runner of this category nor do I put in a lot of time into speedrunning, it is my hobby and I feel passionate about it. Vice City can be a really fun game to watch as there are a lot of interesting strats that a casual player may not be aware of and there is a good share of randomness that arguably makes the game more fun and requires more skill in order to deal with it. 2 I am in the GMT zone, so as long as it's not at night in my time, I should be good to do a run on any of the days
AestheticTerrorAestheticTerror Grand Theft Auto: Vice City All Missions 2:40:00 PC JPN Link I have been a Vice City speedrunner since around the August of 2017 and I believe that I possess a lot of knowledge about the game and I feel confident that I would be able to explain every strat in detail on demand. Even though I am not the best runner of this category nor do I put in a lot of time into speedrunning, it is my hobby and I feel passionate about it. Vice City can be a really fun game to watch as there are a lot of interesting strats that a casual player may not be aware of and there is a good share of randomness that arguably makes the game more fun and requires more skill in order to deal with it. This is my second submission for a different category. Also, sorry for the swearing in the video, especially at the end :) 2 I am in the GMT zone, so as long as it's not at night in my time, I should be good to do a run on any of the days

EmmojiEmmoji Super Lumi Live Any% 0:45:00 PC Link This game needs more attention. It is a very difficult 2d platformer with bright colors, simple controls, and tons of unique levels. Routing is non-linear so the game has gone through several route variations. I am submitting the newest route - 450 silver/0 gold, which is slightly harder but saves time over the 450 silver/9 gold route I had used before. 3 Late night Friday is my best time (after 10 pm utc-5, to about 5am Saturday)

GhostSenpaiGhostSenpai Snow Brothers All Stages 1 Player 0:24:00 NES USA Link Released in 1990 for arcades & ported to the NES/Famicom in 1991 by Toaplan, this platform arcade game has started to turn into a underrated game which is ironic since it was so popular when it was released. Having a similar game concept as Bubble Bobble, but instead of bubbles we have snow balls, we need to beat 50 stages in order to rescue the twin princesses and get free of the snowman curse 0 Jan 19: 13-24 hrs (GMT-6) Jan 20: Anytime (question mark)

This game is considered as the best MK64 rival, sometimes being identified as better than that game.

WarMechWarMech Plants Vs. Zombies Any% 3:40:00 PC USA Link Plants Vs Zombies is one of the most downloaded games of all time and is a household name. The run is dynamic and appealing to speedrunners of all ages and skill levels due to its easy-to-understand premise/flow. The strategy will be explained to the audience in real time. The run is very consistent (does not vary by more than a minute or two out of 3 hours) and the speedrunning scene for the game has exploded in the last year. I held the world record for a year, have reliable internet, and am experienced in races. 0 Jan 19th and 20th; from 6am to 11pm Eastern time each day.
AgustinAgustin Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne Dead on Arrival 0:32:00 PC USA Link This game might as well be the most popular Max Payne game in a speedrun sense, not only because of its innovative and smooth movement and combat mechanics which make the game very fast pace and allow runners to quickly learn the speedrun, but also because of all the tech involved in the speedrun itself, to the point where every single level has its own fair share of tricks and skips that overall optimize this game. Over the course of 2 years this game has been pushed down by about 3 minutes from what the old world record used to be, involving newer strats and optimizing movement as much a possible. My speedrun is currently world record at the time of this submission (12/27/18), this is by far the best speedgame I've ever seen, because even with it being optimized so much, the essence of what the game really is is still there, the game isn't too "broken" to a point where you skip a whole chunk of the game and don't get to experience the magic of this classic masterpiece. 3 January 18th is friday, I can run then, and also saturday and sunday, those days i can surely do this run.

Fire1520Fire1520 Digimon World 4 Any% 2:55:00 GCN USA Link Containing a good mix of WR RNG, marathon safeness, borkne game mechanics, frame perfect tricks and even a couple grind sections to give viewers their much deserved bathroom and groceries break, this run has enough strats to entice viewers and enough chillness to allow for runner-chat interactions to liven up the event.

Fire1520Fire1520 Digimon World 4 Any% (Max stats) 0:45:00 GCN USA Link By using a fully maxed character, this run shifts from the regular luck adaptation and enemy reaction found in regular Any% to a highly skill based, perfect execution heavy run. Every fight ends within a second of it's start, and having all the reference points to save every quarter of a second will be essential if you want a good time. Highly consistent and relatively short, this run only takes about 45min to blow your mid. *Note: run on the video starts at 6:10 5 Run can start anywhere between 8AM and 11PM EST for all days.
LeftSideWorldwideLeftSideWorldwide Stacking Any% 0:40:00 PC USA Link This little hidden gem has proven to be quite a charming little hit among audiences, and it has a lot of neat little setpieces and ridiculous solutions that keep audiences entertained throughout the run. It's sure to be a treat for all involved. 1 I would much prefer an afternoon run, but as long as it's during the day it should be fine. If I'm scheduled too early then I'll have to keep my voice down for fear of waking others. Somewhere around the 5PM PDT to 10PM PDT area is optimal, as nobody else will be home.
