So I'm a fan of Star Wars and felt I'd pass along the info for the speedrun marathon since submissions just opened:
"Hey folks, Licenseathon is back and we'd love to have your licensed game speedruns at our event! This year's event runs from July 30-August 1 and submissions are open from NOW until the end of May.
For those who don't know, we're an online marathon focused on licensed video games specifically. Many games in this meta-genre are rather under-represented in the speedrunning community, and we want to highlight as many of these games' speedruns as we can!
These are games based on an existing franchise, like movies, TV shows, and celebrities. If you want a good idea of what sort of games count as licensed, check this page: https://www.giantbomb.com/licensed-game/3015-1098/. It's not a comprehensive list, but should give you a good idea of the games we accept.
We also have a FAQ on our website that addresses some common questions around our marathon.
