sye990sye990 Earthworm Jim HD Any% 0:42:00 X360 USA Link Earthworm Jim HD is such a great remake, and it does not lose the charm of the original game. The run is very fun and is something that I've put a lot of work into routing. The Earthworm Jim series deserves more love than it gets and I would love to showcase this run. All bosses: adds the Psycrow fight that happens if you lose the Andy Asteroids race. The advanced section of "For Pete's Sake" which is an even more difficult platforming section for this escort mission of a level. Both incentives will each add a couple of minutes to the run. I'm available for any and all times during this.
TBA_aroTBA_aro Gunman Clive Any% Clive, Easy 0:20:00 PC Link Was going to run this at speed stuff for charity but I could not. So I would like to redeem myself by showing off this game! There are not many glitches but there are small optimizations over the course of the run. And as the 5th place runner of this game (flex flex) I should be able to have a decent showcase Nov. 21-22 11AM-6PM CST
KiwamiKiwami 20XX Beat the Game (Reverent) 0:30:00 PC Link 20XX is a rogue-like game heavily inspired by Mega Man X.

PodzPodz Super Mario 3D All Stars Super Mario Galaxy - Any% 2:35:00 Switch KOR Link The main goal of the category is to collect 60 stars and fighting the final bowser level, collecting a grand total of 61 stars. There is a lot that goes into an SMG run, including stuff such as routing, movement, strats and optimizations to bring the game to what it is today. With an updated look onto the game, much better graphics, and way more appealing controls, it's a fun trip, going back to the past. N/A 10AM-11PM Start Time, All Days (BST)
LMMotossLMMotoss Loom Any% (VGA) 0:26:00 MS-DOS USA Link The Lucasarts SCUMM era is dearly beloved by many gamers. This run has a lot of time that can be filled by story explanation, run tech explanation, or donations as needed. The estimate is completely safe as this game involves zero RNG. Any Racer Keep Citadel Death Cutscenes (this is shown in the linked video and adds roughly 8 minutes to the time) - 100 dollar incentive Save or Not Save the Shepherds (this is not shown in the linked video but only adds roughly thirty seconds to the time if they are saved) - Bid War Friday - No Availability Saturday - Available Noon CST or later Sunday - Available Any Time

LMMotossLMMotoss Super Mario Land Any% 0:15:00 GB USA Link Game Boy games to not get to be showcased very often and this one is a classic. This game originates both the character of Daisy, and is the reason why Mario's castle is taken over by Wario later in the sequel. This game requires impressive precision and tight jumps in a game that has infamously strange physics when compared to other Mario games. Color Scheme Bid War - the leaderboard for this game accepts runs on emulator as well as Super Game Boy 2. I can play in the following color choices: Default Virtual Boy Red Classic Gameboy Grey Classic Gameboy Green These color variations do not effect gameplay, but will ensure I suffer during the run if default is not the one picked. Friday - no availability Saturday - Any time after noon CST Sunday - Any Time
ZojalyxZojalyx Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Final Mix HD Aqua 1:10:00 XboxOne USA Link Despite the RNG heaviness of it it is actually a really consistent run that also shows a lot of awesome strats.

bystandertimbystandertim The Outer Worlds Any% 0:20:00 PC USA Link (This is the Sun Ending.) The Outer Worlds is a unique spiritual successor to the Obsidian RPG's akin to Fallout New Vegas. Using a really dumb intelligence character, unique routing, resource management, and a skip and sequence break here or there, we can successfully make our way to the...no wait? what are you doing? are you trying to skip the Hope into Edgewater? That's dumb as heck! For a thing that takes about 20 minutes, you sure went super fast for something that's definitely gonna kill us. Character Name: Nov 20th: 12pm-12am EST Nov 22nd: 12pm-12am EST

TradeMarkedTradeMarked Madagascar Any% Glitchless 1:00:00 PC USA Link Madagascar should be shown at Midfall Speedball 2020 because of its amazing controls, expansive levels, and surprisingly fun mechanics. There are all kinds of levels in Madagascar! All the way from collectathons to difficult platforming sections. All the characters have a lot of unlockable abilities that allow them to move quicker in many areas. Madagascar truly is the peak of licensed games. A donation goal could be for me to complete the final level with Alex's unlockable outfit. The estimate should stay the same if the donation goal is met as it takes less than a minute to get the outfit and go back to the level. November 21st and 22nd
Ryan_Ford522Ryan_Ford522 The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX 100% (No WW/OoB) 1:35:00 GBI JPN Link This is the longest category of the game, but still not too long. 100% also includes getting either the Red or Blue tunic so it's an easy bidwar to do, plus each color has slightly different strats though optimally they're a couple seconds apart. There are a ton of tricks and skips that aren't too difficult to follow / too broken. This category is also pretty marathon-safe since safety saving takes ~4 seconds and the 3 most RNG heavy spots don't lose a lot of time per fail and have either a 25% or 50% chance of working Tunic color bidwar (Red vs Blue). Would have to cut it off after I beat the color dungeon boss (Slightly over halfway in the run) Any day should be fine, just not early mornings in EDT
ArcaniaCQArcaniaCQ Sonic CD (2011) Tails: Beat The Game 0:25:00 PC JPN Link I really wanna showcase this game cause it's such a good glitchless showcase of a game that has alot of cool movement... Tails can fly high! Also I do wanna have this shown off cause me and my girlfriend are pretty equal in skill for this game. KiwamiZX JP vs US soundtrack bidwar Any day between 7pm CET and 1 am CET
ArcaniaCQArcaniaCQ Puyo Puyo SUN All Modes 0:20:00 PC JPN Link Puyo Puyo SUN is a very rarely showcased game that is also pretty obscure in the west but also have alot of charm to it... Being based on the fact that the sun grew larger and this having some beach episode vibes... It has quite a huge cast and with this run I get to show all of them in action. Carbuncle (Not needed to fight in normal runs but for a marathon could be cool to show off) Same as my Sonic CD submission
FreyasSpiritFreyasSpirit Super Metroid Low% 1:15:00 SNES USA Link Super metroid is a classic speedgame with a classic incentive - kill the animals. Low% Ice completes the game collecting the minimum number of items needed, only 14%. This makes for longer, very exciting boss fights with minimal equipment! A true test of skill for this wonderful speedgame. This estimate includes 1:05 for a worst case deathless run plus 10 minutes to cover deaths to mother brain. save/kill/taunt/pet the animals 2pm-4am pacific every day
ArcaniaCQArcaniaCQ Spark the electric jester Fark's Story 0:55:00 PC USA Link Spark the electric jester is a Sonic like game but has elements of a beat em up, kirby and Megaman. Fark which is the main protagonist in this category has a few skips up his sleve which he can use... Such as a Wrong warp and a few more minor skips which are wall zips and boss skips... KiwamiZX Same as Sonic CD
Ryan_Ford522Ryan_Ford522 Gimmick! Best Ending Glitchless 0:17:00 NES JPN Link This game looks cool, it's cute, it's a very short, but an action-packed run. There's a ton of cool movement tech There's nothing I can really think of for bidwars for this game besides glitched vs glitchless category (glitched is definitely less marathon-safe but I could use a savestate in worst-case) Any day should be good as long as it's not early morning EDT I can try to update if I happen to get work again (due to covid I'm employed but haven't worked since March and not really expecting to by then tbh)
FreyasSpiritFreyasSpirit Weird Dreams DOS All Dreams 0:20:00 MS-DOS USA Link Weird dreams is an incredibly cute speedrun that takes us through someone’s dreams. Every bit of this run is incredibly cute! This run uses an infinite lives code which means a death only takes us back to the beginning of a room. This makes this run incredibly marathon safe. This is a truly beautiful game that deserves to be shown off at more marathons. We are the wr holder for this game. 2pm-4am pacific every day
FreyasSpiritFreyasSpirit Tetris The Grand Master Normal 999 0:30:00 Arcade JPN Link One of the most exciting tetris speedgames! The goal is to get through around 700 pieces as quickly as possible while meeting the 126k score requirement. The most interesting thing about tgm is 20G, maximum gravity, during the second half of the game. In this mode, pieces spawn at the bottom of the stack and various techniques are used to successfully navigate this challenge! A 30 minute estimate would give us 3-4 attempts which would give a 90% chance of finishing the game and an 80% chance of finishing the game while meeting the score requirement for a GM. A 20 minute estimate would give a 75% chance of finishing the game and a 66% chance of meeting the score requirements for a GM. No matter what, a significant amount of play in 20G would be shown off! clicky vs not clicky keyboard (blues vs browns) 2pm-4am pacific each day
FreyasSpiritFreyasSpirit Super Metroid Category Extensions Grabbed by every Yapping Maw RTA 0:30:00 SNES USA Link Grabbed by all Yapping Maws (gay%) is a fun side category for super metroid. Yapping maws are enemies which grab you and pull you into environmental hazards such as spikes or lava. In a normal speedrun, getting grabbed by one is bad because it represents multiple seconds of timeloss. Here, we aim to get grabbed by every maw in the game as fast as possible. This category is shorter than any full category and makes for a short and fun run. incentive for every beamshot to be rainbow colored because the category is gay% 2pm-4am pacific each day
Ryan_Ford522Ryan_Ford522 Gimmick! Any% Glitchless 0:11:00 NES JPN Link This game is short, cool, cute, fast-paced and has very good movement tech. Any% is probably more marathon-safe than the best ending. There is a chance I could game-over but it's just a timeloss rather than the run being over I can't think of incentives for this game aside from maybe glitched vs glitchless category, or using any% as a donation goal to unlock Any day should be good as long as it's not early morning EDT I can try to update if I happen to get work again (due to covid I'm employed but haven't worked since March and not really expecting to by then tbh)

CmdrCmdr SimAnimals Any% 1:15:00 Wii USA Link On the surface, SimAnimals looks like a boring game about feeding animals, playing with them, building some damns, and tada. Really, this is micromanaging nightmare. You didn't get 5 blackberries in the first level? Suffer for 15 minutes an hour in the run. Your beaver doesn't wanna make a dam cause he wants babies? Force feed him acorns. Bears, WHY THE BEARS. Bidwar for Bear name General Availability in CST - Friday - 8am - 11am, 6:30pm - 1:30am Saturday - 6:30pm - 1:30am Sunday - 10am - 1:30am If you need me to, let me know ahead of time and I can get Friday or Saturday off.

SharpsDoubleRifleSharpsDoubleRifle Wii Sports Category Extensions All Training Games 0:15:00 Wii USA Link This should be run because the category is fun to watch and is a fun speedrun while being short, only 15 minutes. During my run, i want all the money to go to st. jude. Here is their website https://www.stjude.org/ Around 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm mountain time.
SharpsDoubleRifleSharpsDoubleRifle Wii Fit Plus All Balance Games 0:10:00 Wii USA Link This should be shown because it is a funny meme run and during hard times we can all have a laugh at a meme run. https://www.stjude.org/promotion/impact-giving-pm.html?sc_dcm=277463736&sc_cid=kwp75473&source_code=IIQ190721002&gclid=Cj0KCQjwwOz6BRCgARIsAKEG4FVr0p0EvpJvSa3EuT2OJLAnO4b3qowsGu1mbrp7AMIXeEjWCm1-6EcaAgcNEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds About 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm mountain time.

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 rid of the snowman curse Sombrero%: I'll use a big sombrero during the run https://www.twitch.tv/videos/696152004 Nov. 20: Not available between 7-8:30pm Nov. 21-22: Anytime (GMT-6)
GhostSenpaiGhostSenpai Pepsiman Any% 0:25:00 PS JPN Link PEPSI FOR TV-GAME! PEPSI FOR MARATHONS! A classic marathon run with the cutscenes incentive.

GhostSenpaiGhostSenpai Splatoon 2 Hero Mode Any% 2:15:00 Switch USA Link Octolings kidnapped the Great Zapfish again and now it's time for Agent 4 to get it back (again). In this sequel for the post-apocalyptic Nintendo game the ex-squid sister Marie calls a new agent to help her to rescue the great zapfish before Inkopolis runs into a power outage, and probably, having an extra reason to ask for our help. Octo Expansion is usually showcased in most marathons since it's a shorter run, making that HM doesn't receive much attention as a speedgame/category; plus I'm gonna be playing just with analog sticks, which is slower than gyroscope but makes the run more harder/challenging to complete. Inkling boy vs Inkling girl bidwar Nov. 20: Not available between 7-8:30pm Nov. 21-22: Anytime (GMT-6)
Thebpg13Thebpg13 GripShift All Levels 0:10:00 X360 EUR Link Fun little run which might get others to run the game, released back in 2005 this game is mainly about stunts and making sure you get to the goal in time whilst collecting tokens and boost. It's a lot of fun to watch, the category I'm actually submitting here is the Beginner category which is the starting point for this game and some of the tracks and ridiculous as to how fast you can beat them. None. None. 21st/22nd November (1PM - 9PM) (UK Time)
Thebpg13Thebpg13 Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice Any% NG+ 3:00:00 PSP USA Link This game has never been shown at a marathon before so this would be it's debut run if it was accepted, in this game you play as a commander taking down gangs in Capital City with many twists and turns along the way. Even though we can skip cutscenes in this run which makes it much easier compared to the regular Any% category I will still play some crucial ones to give everyone an idea of the story. Hopefully people will enjoy this run as it involves on-foot segments, aircraft shooting, taking down vehicles by using brute force so it has it's fair share of different gameplay styles. None. None. November 21st/22nd (1PM - 9PM) (UK Time)
LuxiAaLuxiAa New Super Mario Bros. Wii Any% 0:30:00 Wii EUR Link Because this is a famous game, which can bring some great memories of childhood for a lot of people. It's also a game with a lot of active speedrunners. It's an impressive and interesting speedrun to watch, and I'm pretty sure that basically everyone will enjoy it! During my run I'm aiming for 25$. (5 min extra time if the goal is met) Can't run the 20th September. Can run the 21st September between 10 to 12 AM and 8 to 12 PM in UTC+2 (France) Time.

JebJeb Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Randomizer Any% 1:50:00 PS USA Link Symphony of the Night has made itself into the history books of speedrunning with its huge skips and flashy movement. Randomizer is able to show even more than what is already present any time lol
PeasPeas Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD All Worlds 0:48:00 PC USA Link Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD (BBHD) is a remaster of the original 2006 game that underwhelmed many Super Monkey Ball fans because of bosses, horrendous collision, and 10-5. (And it isn't a remaster of the original Monkey Ball games.) However, with the inclusion of Sonic the Hedgehog, BBHD proves to be one of the more unique Super Monkey Ball speed games. The player has to develop consistency and ground speed control instead of completely relying on air speed to achieve nifty strats; or memorizing pause strats which are nonexistent in this game. Additionally, BBHD is the most current Super Monkey Ball game released on console (and handheld if you count Switch) within 9 years (Step and Roll was released on Wii in 2010). The game itself is a step towards a new Super Monkey Ball game that will hopefully rekindle the beloved franchise. - Do a world using the cube ball variant. - Bidwar: do a world as one of the original Monkey Ball characters: Aiai, Meemee, Baby (including Baby Robo), or Gongon. - Do 10-5 with a minimum of 5 jumps. All weekend. Preferably in the afternoon on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
lenameklenamek Stories: The Path of Destinies Any% 1:45:00 PC Link I love this game and I love playing this game. I think it's really beautiful, the story/characters are kind of funny. And, did I mention I love playing this game? For an estimated 10 minute run, I can play a scenario I call "Dark Reynardo", where the hero of the story is totally consumed by the dark side and becomes a monster. That's a scenario viewer generally like to see... but in the speedrun run, we don't see it as it is not one of the fastest. I will be available during all the event.
BunjelBunjel wii sports resort All Sports 0:19:00 WiiU USA Link Wii Sports Resort is a Growing SpeedGame and All Sports is the Main Category. The incentive Goal Could Be A Golf 18 Hole Run (Est 13:30 Minutes). Im available any time.
IIvgmIIIIvgmII Death End Re;Quest 2 NG 1:35:00 PC USA Link Death end re;Quest 2 is the most recently released game in the Death end re;Quest series, having been released in August 2020 on Steam. IF/CH games are pretty well known in terms of JRPG games, and DERQ2 was pretty hyped up. This is a showcase of the game on Hard Mode, which is quite the meme to say the least. Bosses with millions of one-shot moves, memes, and more one-shot moves. Hard abuses the combat system quite heavily in order to survive battles at a low level, not that grinding will help you anyways. True/Bad End Bidwar (True takes about 10 minutes longer on average?) On weekends
FreyasSpiritFreyasSpirit Touhou Koumakyou ~ the Embodiment of Scarlet Devil Easy 0:16:00 PC Link Touhou 6 - eosd is the best representation of the series and is consistently the top voted game in the annual touhou popularity contest. This run will use bombs on the vast majority of spellcards to defeat bosses as quickly as possible. Deaths will be taken to replenish bombs. This run is incredibly marathon safe with a bad run being only a minute slower than a good run. A run which takes too many deaths will only lose about 1 second over a successful 1 credit clear. choose the character/shot type (+1 minute): Reimu A Reimu B Marisa A Marisa B attempt a normal 1 credit clear, +6 minutes, would show off level 6 which doesn't appear in easy 2pm-4am pacific every day

OddPandemoniumOddPandemonium Princess Maker: Go! Go! Princess Any% 0:10:00 Switch USA Link This is the 1st time this game will be shown in a marathon. I'll do a low% if anyone decides to donate $5 at any time. I am available on Saturday and/or Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM
drywalldrywall Sonic Adventure 2: Battle - Category Extensions Security Hall x25 0:30:00 PC USA Link Security Hall x25 may initially be a very odd choice for a category, but this run showcases my favorite speed techniques of the game, and, surprisingly, is an actual category on the category extension boards! This run is derived from playing 25 of each hunting Rouge stage for a total of 100 hunting stages played, called a Rouge Centurion. This run features techniques known as death strats, where, upon getting a bad emerald location, we kill Rouge in order to respawn a potentially better piece. The movement in this stage is also very clean and requires a lot of good decision making to work out well. We also manipulate the height we get from wind blowers throughout the stage to get to the emerald locations as fast as possible, and the tech in the run is pretty sick. Overall, funny seeming run that is actually a serious category with cool speedtech and quick thinking. Available to do the run at any time during the event, only available to commentate while running from 8am-8pm on any given day. (If scheduled between 8pm-8am will need extra commentator)
TastyMeowmixTastyMeowmix Refunct Low% 0:15:00 PC Link Low% is one of the hardest conquerable challenges I've ever encountered. It's more or less impossible to finish in a marathon setting. The goal is to complete the game without touching any platforms other than the starting platform and the button platforms. Nearly every button is a incredibly hard. I do think I can finish the run in it's entirety however there is a chance I hit an extra platform. If that happens it's unfortunate but the run can continue. Potentially Low% New Game Glitch which is comparable in difficulty to Low%. It would also take about 15 minutes. Refunct Any% Blindfolded. I should be able to beat the entire game blindfolded. I should be able to do it in under 30 minutes. If stuff goes real sideways and bad it might take a long time to stabilize and figure out where I am. I can most likely run at any time of any day if needed but I would prefer to run between 3PM-1AM MDT.
ChronosChronos FATE Page 0:40:00 PC USA Link FATE is one of the most popular dungeon crawler games of its time, and has a pretty cool speedrun featuring fishing, spellcasting, on the fly routing and decision making with all the fun of randomness that can happen! Any day, preferably 2 pm to 3 am central time.
ChronosChronos The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim All Main Quests 1:10:00 PC USA Link Most people know Skyrim speedrunning for the horse tilt mechanics which can completely break the game and is a really difficult trick, but in this run, we don't use any at all, allowing for so many glitches and tricks that Skyrim features such as the whirlwind sprint glitch, item hopping, bucket hovering, and scroll duping that the Any% run does not show. Glitch Exhibition (10-30 minutes depending on how long people want) Any day, preferably 2 pm to 3 am central time.
ChronosChronos Halo: Combat Evolved Legendary 1:25:00 PC USA Link Since the last time it has been shown at this event, the world record has dropped by a couple minutes featuring new glitches with the PC release of The Master Chief Collection on MCC such as Banshee out of level and cafe bump teleport which were not able to be done previously. Any day, preferably 2 pm to 3 am central time.
SableDragonRookSableDragonRook Spyro Reignited Trilogy (Console & Time Trials) Dragons/Orbs/Eggs 0:53:00 PS4Pro USA Link The 80 Dragons category of Spyro is one of the most exciting runs the game has to offer. Featuring glitches that offer engaging visuals and totally reinvent the routing of the game by glitching Spyro into a developer's tool located out of bounds, 80 Dragons has been well received by viewers at marathons. The goal is to collect all of the game's 80 dragons trapped in crystal. The category shows off more of the game than any% in addition to its fun glitches and hitbox exploits. I am the current WR holder for this category.   Any% Exhibition. Because 80 Dragons and Any% are both run on v1.0 of Spyro, I can perform a quick any% of the game to show off areas (like the final boss, Gnasty Gnorc) not seen in the 80 Dragons run. The same glitch-into-dev-tool trick applies. I am the current WR holder in any%, and the run takes about 8 minutes; a 12-minute estimate would be very safe. Any day, any time, but with a strong preference for Friday before 5pm EST.
SableDragonRookSableDragonRook Spyro Reignited Trilogy (Console & Time Trials) Spyro the Dragon 1:02:00 PS4Pro USA Link The NBS (No Balloonist Skip) variant of Spyro any% shows off a large majority of the game by designating itself as "no major glitches." The goal of the run is to defeat the final boss, Gnasty Gnorc, which requires collecting 50 dragons, 5 dragon eggs, and 6000 gems. This Spyro category also features flight levels. It's the most commonly watched of the Spyro 1 runs.  Sunglasses Spyro. I can put a cool pair of black sunglasses on Spyro for the run. Colorful Spyro. Using a start menu code before the run, I can change Spyro's appearance, which is a great opportunity for a bid war. The options are: traditional (purple and orange), retro (Spyro's PS1 model, more pixelated), black, blue, green, pink, purple (solid, no orange), red, and yellow. You can also toss in sunglasses here if you want a bidwar instead of just the sunglasses incentive. Any day, any time, but with a strong preference for Friday before 5pm EST.
SableDragonRookSableDragonRook Inside All Deaths 1:20:00 PS4 USA Link Turning the standard any% run on its head, Inside All Deaths% still completes the game as fast as possible, but with an interesting catch: trigger each of the game's unique death animations once. From being captured by creepy water girls to being walloped by a massive soundwave, this category adds some spice and uniqueness to the normal any% routing, all while presenting an atmospheric and haunting game essentially in its entirety. I am currently the 2nd place holder of this category.    Finish the Game. Timing for All Deaths ends at sort of an obtuse point before the game's story does. Considering that Inside features your main character getting turned into a freaky blob man, viewers generally want to spend an extra 10 minutes to see how this oddball story ends. By spending an extra 9 to 10 minutes, I can finish the game and reach the end credits so viewers can conclude their viewing of the game's story. Any day, any time, but with a strong preference for Friday before 5pm EST.
SableDragonRookSableDragonRook The Last Guardian Any% 3:35:00 PS4 USA Link The Last Guardian Any% is a unique AI-centric run that requires constant skilled management of a lovable AI fluffy feathered cat-dog companion to solve puzzles while performing skips, glitches, and optimized movement. Because any% does not feature sequence breaking, viewers are treated to all of TLG's amazing story: maximum joy in minimum time. People love to relax with Trico as he memes it up. Timing for TLG any% ends before viewers get to see the answer to the most important question: does our best boy Trico make it? At every marathon I've run TLG at, without fail, chat is severely disappointed when cutscenes don't get to play, to the point that they have at times asked staff to give extra time so we can watch them. Because any% does not skip sequences, viewers have seen the entire story up to the end, and they get very sad if they're not allowed to find out how the story finishes. Watching cutscenes adds approx. 18 minutes to the run (mainly at the end, with two other cutscenes throughout the run). Any day, any time, but with a strong preference for Friday before 5pm EST.
TastyMeowmixTastyMeowmix Refunktion Beat the Game 0:15:00 PC Link Refunktion is a super cool stealth platforming game where the objective is to collect all 9 cubes and throw them into the fizzler.

PsyradePsyrade Backyard Skateboarding any% 0:20:00 PC Link I ran it at Midwest Speedfest 2020 and it's a super fun, exciting, fast paced game to watch. The first trick starts right off the countdown and there's no slowing down the entire run. It's very trick heavy and moves from one challenge to the next extremely fast. Name for custom character! Friday 20th: 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm Saturday 7:00 am - 10:00 pm Sunday 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Grim Fandango: Remastered Any% 1:20:00 PC Link GF is a legendary adventure game made by Lucasarts in the 90’s, but we were lucky enough to get a remaster a few years ago! A film noir meets the Land of the Dead from Mexican folklore. The Any% category completes all 4 years of the journey as fast as possible with optimal routing and puzzle solutions, and does not implement any glitches. It’s a very chill game with an excellent soundtrack and beautiful set pieces. Original vs Remastered Graphics Bidwar Open as of now due to COVID-19. Will update if needed.

When I'm not locked into intense battles, I'm solving puzzles on the overworld, meaning that I almost always have to be paying attention and having my memory ready at a moment's notice Ride the Rollercoaster - I ride a fun little rollercoaster tucked away in Zone 2 after the run is done.

LaurieDBunnykinsLaurieDBunnykins Pac-Man World 2 Any% 1:00:00 GCN USA Link 3D Cult-classic platformer with a lot of wonky movement, both noticable and unnoticable skips, and a questionably long autoscroller.

Silo_SimonSilo_Simon Ratatouille (Asobo) Any% (Wii) 0:25:00 Wii USA Link This game is based on the Pixar movie Ratatouille, although it follows a bit of a different story line, especially because the any% speedrun has a massive 30+ minute sequence break. There are all sorts of neat speed strats in this game, and I'll be playing on probably the worst controlling version lol, but it's the version I have and I think I'm alright at the run. Plus, everyone loves some wagglin'! Any time from 10am to 8pm Mountain Time.
lenameklenamek The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+. Racing+ 2:00:00 PC Link A well known indie game with an active speedrun community. A lot of RNG to begin with... and then... more RNG (As the mod didn't add PC for the platform for the game, I wasn't able to submit the run :/ I had an error message with "Please specify the platform". Sorry I cheat with the form a little bit ) Clear the boss rush with one of the character (on the 7 builds, one should be broken enough to clear the boss rush, especially on the last character who has Tech X) Available all the weekend
LabryzLabryz Sonic The Hedgehog (2006) Shadow Story (No MSG) 1:00:00 PC USA Link Shadow in '06 hasn't seen a marathon in a much longer time than sonic/silver, and with the game's huge recent surge in popularity within the last 3 months, there's a bunch of nutty things that even shadow has that have been discovered since. This category got a lot more interesting, in a game whose reputation precedes it... Addendum: I have a new setup that has much much better audio quality, demo here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/767806326 Bidding war: English vs Japanese voices (tie goes to JP) (Tool-Assisted?)

Slade425Slade425 LEGO The Lord of the Rings Any% (Co-op) 3:00:00 PC USA Link S very glitch heavy run with super entertaining strats and commentary. Zojalyx anytime
ThisGuyAreSickThisGuyAreSick ibb & obb Any% Local Co-op Highwayless 0:50:00 PC USA Link We had an incredible time showcasing Unravel Two at MWSF this summer, a delightful puzzle platformer. ibb & obb is similarly a very adorable puzzle platformer, with incredibly simple, accessible gameplay but extremely challenging puzzles requiring outside the box thinking and precise gameplay. The speedrun is glitchless, allowing the full game to be shown off and played at an extremely high level. Rey and I are the world record holders (okay, fine, by default) for this category. ms_rey There are eight "secret" bonus levels in the game, and we'd be happy to showcase any of them after our run is complete. The levels vary in length, but I'm happy to provide specific estimates for individual levels. We could "100%" one of the levels either during or after the run (each level can be entered directly into from the game's menu, so it doesn't take any time to get back into a specific level after the fact), requiring us to destroy every single enemy and collect all of the gems produced. In our normal route, we only destroy enemies that are in our way and don't worry about collecting any gems, as they're not required to progress. 11/20 - Anytime after 8:00 PM CST (preferably not later than 11:00 PM or so, though.) 11/21 - From 1:00 - 4:00 PM and after 8:00 PM CST 11/22 - Anytime after 8:00 PM CST. Other times are likely doable, if necessary, we'd just need to arrange for childcare.
KiwamiKiwami Spark The Electric Jester Fark's Story 0:55:00 PC Link StEJ is an game heavily inspired by Sonic. The Fark Story is fast paced and has a lot of cool skips and movement (we do something called "Super static", which is a glitch that grants us super speed, damage and invulnerability). ArcaniaCQ (Race) Anyday, any time between 10 AM to 10 PM BRT
SuperViperT302SuperViperT302 Super Mario 74 110 Star 1:30:00 N64 USA Link Super Mario 74 is a ROM hack of Super Mario 64 made in 2011 by Lugmillord, featuring custom levels for the player to traverse and a whopping 31 additional stars. It's fairly primative as SM64 ROM hacks go, but still full of incredible speedrunning strats and tight platforming (along with some hilarious dialogue and a laughably bad camera). 110 Star is the equivalent to 70 Star in SM64, where no star door requirements can be skipped. This showcases pretty much all of the levels in the game, and a variety of impressive jumps and maneuvers to get to each star. (note: it is very likely my PB will improve by a few minutes before the event). 10 Star bonus run (18:00) Available entire time, will take graveyard shift only if 100% needed
SuperViperT302SuperViperT302 Super Mario 74 151 Star Non-Stop 2:15:00 N64 USA Link Super Mario 74 is a ROM hack of Super Mario 64 made in 2011 by Lugmillord, featuring custom levels for the player to traverse and a whopping 31 additional stars. It's fairly primative as SM64 ROM hacks go, but still full of incredible speedrunning strats and tight platforming (along with some hilarious dialogue and a laughably bad camera). This run will showcase every available star in the game, but with a twist: I will be using a GameShark code that makes it so Mario stays in a stage after collecting a star, allowing for every star in a stage to be collected in one trip. This creates some very unique level routing with a slight risk of losing the entire run to getting a game over, but 1-up farming can be done to avert this. 10 Star Non-Stop bonus run (15:00) Available entire time, will do graveyard shift only if 100% necessary
LeftSideWorldwideLeftSideWorldwide No Mans Sky Artemis Path 4:50:00 PC USA Link NMS deserves more love tbh. It also has a lot of donation incentives. Name The Ship, Name The Base, Name The Planets (We'll be visiting several planets, each time a new one is visited it's named with the highest name that hasn't been used yet), Name The System (Same as above, but with solar systems), Save or Kill Artemis Preferably a night run, please. After 8PM Pacific time, any day.
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Cartoon Cartoon Summer Resort All Episodes 0:15:00 Web Link So, you're looking for an Awful Block-style game? Look no further. A Cartoon Network trading RPG complete with level skips, ducks, fast item swaps, and crabs. Did I mention that we get to see and talk to characters from all of our favorite shows from the 90s and early 2000s? It's a perfect, goofy summertime game for the middle of winter. It literally CAN'T fail! Open as of now due to COVID-19 furlough, happy to change if needed
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Pokémon Red/Blue Any% Glitchless 2:05:00 GBP Link The run utilizes RNG manipulation to get a Nidoran with god stats, avoid encounters in Mt. Moon, catch Pokémon on the first ball and solve Surge's cans puzzle in a blink. Instant Text will also be used, saving potentially minutes through the early parts of the run with text appearing instantly versus scrolling. It's one of the most popular speedgames there is, so it should be an audience favorite. Bidwar: Nickname Rival (7 characters) Incentive: Catch Mewtwo (8 minutes) Open as of now due to COVID-19 furlough, happy to update if anything changes
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Pokémon SWSH Category Extensions Tower of Two Fists 1:45:00 Switch Link We begin the game as normal, but we get over to the Isle of Armor as soon as we can, so the levels are much lower than a normal run. The route also utilizes entirely different Pokémon than the main run with far less resources (no bike, no ability to fly). When focusing on the DLC on its own, it feels like an entirely different game. We can still look at Wailord from a distance, though! Bidwar: Choose Bulbasaur or Squirtle Open as of now due to COVID-19 furlough, happy to update if anything changes
Fruity_WafflesFruity_Waffles Cuphead All Bosses v1.1 0:38:00 PC USA Link Cuphead is one giant boss rush of pain, everyone who's played this game has probably gotten really mad at it.

Fruity_WafflesFruity_Waffles The Messenger 8-Bit 0:36:00 PC USA Link We all like our ninja games don't we?

SoocySoocy Lenna's Inception Sacrifice Ending 0:52:00 PC USA Link Lenna's Inception is a zelda-like rogue-lite with multiple endings and a number of unique mechanical twists. Sacrifice ending is comparable to an all-bosses category. Since its last appearance at a MWSF event, Lenna's Inception speedrunning has progressed notably due to new technical discoveries and a major update. Player name (up to 12 characters), seed/world name (up to 12 characters) All days, noon-8PM central U.S. time
SoocySoocy Lenna's Inception Perfect Ending 1:12:00 PC USA Link Lenna's Inception is a zelda-like rogue-lite with multiple endings and a number of unique mechanical twists. Perfect ending, while not 100%, is in practice comparable to such categories, with sidequests and pacifist boss encounters. Since its last appearance at a MWSF event, Lenna's Inception speedrunning has progressed notably due to new technical discoveries and a major update. Player name (up to 12 characters), seed/world name (up to 12 characters) All days, noon until 8PM central U.S. time

musical_daredevilmusical_daredevil The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind All Main Quests 0:25:00 PC USA Link This is an extremely faced-paced and dense run, filled with tons of quick movement and menuing, and (of course) tons of glitches. One incentive would be for me to do a 5-minute any% run afterwards. Another potential incentive is character name.
SidarinoSidarino U.N. Squadron Any% Easy 0:25:00 SNES JPN Link I did this run in ESA and people really seemed to enjoy the nerd cosplay along with the nice commentary. I think I can do way better for your event and provide higher quality content. I think this, because of my improved mic quality, s-video quality stream now too. If you'd like we could do a costume incentive. One could be the nerd cosplay and the other can be a unicorn suit costume since its a running joke on my stream. I am in NYC so EST time. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I have classes till 2:30 PM. Anytime after I am available
AShinyBlackPhoenixAShinyBlackPhoenix Nex Machina All Secret Exits 0:40:00 PC EUR Link This time I'm submitting this on my own free will. Run will be once again done on Veteran difficulty. This run will be similar to the Veteran Any% run for the majority, however I have to complete all Secret Levels, which are bonus levels, in this run. This adds (if I didnt miscount) a total of 35 additional levels to the run. Would do the same incentive as last time. So master world 1 showcase, which adds around an additional 5 minutes. Friday 20th: 7pm-1pm Saturday 21st: 4pm-1pm Sunday 22nd: 3pm-10 pm Times are given in GMT +1 or +2 idk. The time zone for Germany.
Miller2BMiller2B Mega Man X Legacy Collection X4 Any% (Ultimate Armor) 0:45:00 PC USA Link While both X and Zero 100% have been mainstays for X4 runs at marathons, the Ultimate Armor Any% is a lesser-known, but still very entertaining category. The run makes use of the Nova Strike technique for additional movement and boss strats than those seen in the X 100% run. I hope that showing off the run in more marathons will inspire others to pick up the category. Friday Afternoon / All Day Saturday / All Day Sunday
Captain_EzekielCaptain_Ezekiel Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Any% 1:31:00 PC JPN Link Resident Evil 7 is the scariest game of the franchise, making it the best game to kick off or close a horror block following the story of Ethan Winters as he ventures through the terrifying Baker house and battles the evils of the Baker Family. This will be the NG Easy Category, in which I have the world record. I am available all Marathon days passed 5:00 PM CST and any time on the weekend.
EpicCrossoverEpicCrossover Goblin Sword Good Ending 1:45:00 Switch USA Link Goblin Sword is an adventure game that relies on you upgrading your weapons to continue defeating enemies, bosses, and the so called "Final" boss Dark Wizard. It's a game that hasn't gotten a lot of traction in the past and I will be able to show how the game works when it USED to be a mobile game. This is probably the best Switch game I've played this year, and I can't wait to showcase it this fall if I have the opportunity to show off the game and its mechanics. If there's a $5 incentive, I will skip a bonus heart in which I'll have to complete the game with only 3 hearts to my availability(the hearts I begin with). I will be available on Friday from 4 pm-11 pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am-11 pm. I can try to work around my schedule if needed, but I will not go at 7 am.
SCXCRSCXCR Maximum Chase Any % 0:35:00 Xbox USA Link This game simply doesn't stop. It exists in a constant state of car chases, shootouts, lag, and explosions. Speed tech is a little bit RNG parked car placement, pinpoint charged shot aiming, drift management, and trying to stay out in front so the game lags slightly (SLIGHTLY) less. Cutscene% - This game's cutscenes are a glorious mix of overdubbed FMV (with different actors no less) and CG, and the incentive is to watch all of them. Not counting the game intro, this adds 15 minutes to the estimate. Cutscenes can be seen here: https://youtu.be/tA_7Jp4odpI?t=208 I'm available pretty much any time, any day. My schedule is very flexible.
SCXCRSCXCR 720° Training (Arcade) 0:20:00 Arcade USA Link A classic 80s arcade skateboarding game, 720 takes the sport back to before the ollie was a common trick. Speed is achieved by strong event performance (downhill, halfpipe, etc.) and strategic point farming, either by doing tricks or knocking out pedestrians. Route made marathon safe with extra point farming. My schedule is flexible, so I can do pretty much any time, any day.
SCXCRSCXCR Escape from Bug Island NG+ Any% 1:12:00 Wii USA Link From the bowels of Midwest Speedfest history, Escape from Bug Island is back in NG+ form! Here, the bonus items turn Ray into a pseudo-samurai who solves almost every problem by throwing grenades at them. Includes a couple route changes and even more waggling. Death% - Play every cutscene where a character dies. This adds about a minute and a half to the run. My schedule is very flexible, so I can do just about any time or day.
IamUncleSlamIamUncleSlam Super Mario Maker 2 Story Mode (Any%) 1:46:00 Switch USA Link It’s five Mario games in one! Story Mode involves more than just getting through levels as quickly as possible; since coins are critical to progress the game, we also attempt to grab as many coins as we can along the way. This expands upon the usual “get from point A to point B” style of speedrunning, and adds an element of currency management to the mix. And like any Mario game, there are also plenty of levels with their fair share of skips, fast strats, and overall fun to watch gameplay. As a bidwar, save/kill the Yoshi is an option. If done, the cut off should be very early in the run, if not immediately before the run starts, since the Yoshi level is the fourth level done in the route. I should ideally be available throughout the whole marathon.
IamUncleSlamIamUncleSlam The Touryst Any% 0:45:00 Switch USA Link The Touryst provides a slew of different gameplay styles, including flying a drone, operating a canoe, leading a parade of fireflies, and navigating dungeons in order to destroy an army of aliens that have been dormant for centuries. You know, typical stuff you do on vacation. The speedrun has a strong emphasis on mastery of movement, and combining that with the dungeons helps the protagonist pick apart plenty of puzzles promptly. A potential bidwar could be what shirt the protagonist wears at the end of the game. Options are as follows: Standard top, tank top, sports top, tuxedo, construction worker top, and Space Invaders shirt. I should be available throughout the whole marathon.
PeterAfroPeterAfro Mega Man X7 Any% (NG+) 1:05:00 PC KOR Link Switching between 3D and 2D and switching between Zero and X makes this more varied than most mega man speedruns 9Am-10PM EST
FellFell Celeste Quickie Mountain 2 Any% 0:07:00 PC Link Quickie Mountain 2 is a "Kaizo Celeste Hack" inspired by its kaizo mario hack namesake. Full of tight jumps, dashes, and climbs, it has everything youd want to see in a combination between the two platforming powerhouses that are mario and celeste. The pack also features custom music composed by one of the developers. This run would be a good show at MFSB as it will be a showcase of the amazing movement that celeste has become so famous for, as well as showing off a very well made custom level pack which adds a level of precision to the game that takes it even further as an impressive run. As the current WR holder for this hack I feel comfortable doing this hack justice in a marathon. Incentive: Badeline File Name Play All Developed Levels (+20 mins, the run submitted is an any% run, but there are plenty of levels in the pack not included in that. Unfortunately as the pack is not 100% developed, there is no complete 100% category yet, but this incentive would be me running through the extra 6 or so levels on top of grabbing the cassette tapes to unlock them) Free after 5 pm on Friday and all day sat and sunday
FellFell Celeste Grabless Any% 0:50:00 PC Link Celeste is a game that has become very famous at marathons for its incredible movement. It can be mesmerizing to watch players cleanly fly through rooms using the really fluid mechanics. But what if you took away the ability to climb in the game thats all about climbing a mountain? Grabless any% is a run that is full of (some small, and some very large) miracles that allow for the run to be possible. Despite the fact that its possible, it is so difficult that only 6 people have been confirmed to have beaten the challenge in a single segment. As the current WR holder for this category I can guarantee that despite how absurd some of the tricks in this run can be, that I will finish in my estimate and show off how amazingly creative the routing gets in this category to keep the smooth movement despite the removal of one of the games main mechanics. Badeline Skin Incentive Do Chapter 2 B side in the run (+2 minutes) Grabless 1C Showcase (+2 minutes) I am free after 5 pm Friday and all day Sat and Sunday
miinfinmiinfin The Messenger Any% 2:10:00 PC USA Link The Messenger is an amazing 2D platformer heavily inspired by Ninja Gaiden. It starts out in 8 Bit design and sound, and moves into 16 bit for a better look, and finally turns into a metroidvania. Strats are still evolving, so an Any% run may still come in well under the estimate here Bid war for highest donation in the bid war to pick the name/name it after them. Saturday 11/21 9p CST - 11/22 2am CST Sunday 11/22 11a CST - 8p CST
PeekingBooPeekingBoo Celeste Any% with Dance Pads 1:05:00 PC Link Celeste is a brutally difficult platformer offering some of the most difficult challenges in modern gaming. Deaths are inevitable for most runners and most time-saves come from surviving every challenge thrown at you. I will take that one step further (get it?) and tackle these challenges using dance pads as my controller. In a test of mental and physical fortitude, who will win? Me or the Mountain? Input Display - Shows my dance pad inputs so the viewer has complete knowledge of the buttons I am pressing. Nov 20 & 21: 10pm to 10am
PeekingBooPeekingBoo Celeste All C-Sides with Dance Pads 0:20:00 PC Link All C-Sides demonstrates Celeste's toughest challenges condensed into eight 3-screen trials. It's not for the faint hearted. Input Display - Shows my dance pad inputs so the viewer has complete knowledge of the buttons I am pressing. Nov 20 & 21: 10pm to 10am
silverm00nl1ghtsilverm00nl1ght 3D Frog Frenzy All Levels 0:23:00 PC Link Inspired by the arcade game Frogger, 3D Frog Frenzy has the player assume the role of Froggy - the only frog in the world who, as described by the game manual, can't swim, and is trying to flee to the Bahamas while dodging traffic and water to escape an evil chef who wants to serve him up as frog legs. The bizarre visuals, mechanics and storyline mixed with a groovy MIDI soundtrack would make for an entertaining and humorous entry for the marathon. Submitting as a race with Sandsh8rk. (Note: Submission video is originally for AGDQ2021, got clarification from staff that it was acceptable to do this). Sandsh8rk N/A Note - Sandsh8rk and I both live in Sydney, Australia (AEDT, UTC +11) Availability in Central time is as follows; 3pm - 5am (next day) Applicable for each day of the marathon.
GarbitheGlitcheressGarbitheGlitcheress The Powerpuff Girls: Battle HIM Any% 0:18:00 GBC USA Link This is an incredibly janky game that is really fast when done well. There's also some pretty neat link connectivity among the other 2 gbc ppg games that can be talked about. Nov. 20-21: 6 AM ET - 3:30 PM ET Nov. 22: 6 AM ET- end of marathon
GarbitheGlitcheressGarbitheGlitcheress Katamari Forever All Goals 1:05:00 PS3 USA Link Katamari Forever remakes a lot of levels from the previous console katamari games, and adds a few new levels, with different movement settings to play the levels, as well as a few new mechanics such as a heart which helps suck up objects and the ability to jump. This run will mainly use the new drive mode that was added in this game, and I feel the run is a fun abridged experience of all the previous console katamari games in about an hour. Nov. 20-21: 6 AM ET - 3:30 PM ET Nov. 22: 6 AM ET- end of marathon
DoumeisDoumeis Final Fantasy VII PC 2:05:00 PC USA Link The PC vesion of FF7 has a lot of new skips that were found recently, making the game really short and broken. Finish Sephiroth with Omnislash Any day/hour
moonblazewolfmoonblazewolf Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling Any% Glitchless 3:15:00 PC USA Link An adorable trio of cute bugs go on an adventure to save the world! This is an indie Platformer RPG in the style of Paper Mario. Filename bidwar, Play a game in the Termite Arcade (postgame bonus) Available for entire event.
ThisGuyAreSickThisGuyAreSick Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly Any% PS2 1:50:00 PS2 USA Link Survival horror isn't a genre often seen in the speedrunning community, but it should be! Fatal Frame II is one of the scariest games ever made, a classic entry in the survival horror genre. It's also a great game to both play and watch, and the speedrun is almost entirely glitchless, allowing the full game to be appreciated despite only taking about two hours to complete. I would be submitting this run on an emulator, despite normally running on a physical PS2, for marathon safety reasons. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, save states can be quickly loaded to pick up where the game left off. The complex and tragic story, excellent atmosphere, and brilliant gameplay conceits make this a great game to show off at any event. There are lots and lots of cutscenes throughout the game, all of which get skipped in the service of goin' fast. In my submission video, I let a few cutscenes play out that I think add quite a bit to both the story and the horror of the game, and adding the cutscenes as an incentive could be an excellent bonus. This would add about 10 minutes to the total run time. The other incentive that I think is definitely a great idea is a showcase of the game's "bad ending". This wouldn't be in place of the canon ending, because it's not officially an ending, it's a "game over", so after it's showcase, I'd continue the run as normal. But it's awesome, and with save states thanks to an emulator, only adds about five minutes to the total run. My submission video also includes this bad ending. Both incentives together would make the run estimate about 2 hours 5 minutes. Ideally, I'd run this game between 8:00 and 11:00 PM on Friday the 20th, between 1:00 and 4:00 or 8:00 - 11:00 PM on the 21st, or between 8:00 - 11:00 PM on the 22nd. I can make myself available, though, if needed, anytime other than Sunday morning.
Dragonz4477Dragonz4477 Wii Fit Plus All Yoga Training 0:40:00 Wii USA Link it's time to relax, take a deep breath in, and fall over if your balance is awful like mine. the category is pretty self-explanatory, and i would encourage the viewers at home to join us for the ride. note: if the overlay allows for it, it would be cool to have cams. if not, it's no big deal Cmdr, Gooby (if he feels like it lol) Male vs. Female Trainer pretty much anytime on saturday or sunday, but preferably between 1-10 PM ET
TheTerrificTracyTheTerrificTracy Hebereke Any% 0:26:00 NES JPN Link Very goofy and cute "metroidvania" for the NES. A lovable penguin named Hebe gets lost in a strange world and needs our help to get home! The run features a fun trek across the world where we meet and use the abilities of 3 other characters. There's a cool trick involving swapping the speed of Hebe over the other three since he goes the fastest, allowing us to either speed up ice or water sections or completely skip over other areas entirely. There's also a frame tight wall jump to sequence break the game, and the boss strategies are all rather dangerous as most involve taking damage to death warp afterwards. Should be a fun time overall! 100% Now I'll actually get everything in the game AND go to one area that's cut from Any% The length of the run increases my estimate to 36 minutes. Not available on the 20th. Available any time between noon and midnight on the 21st. Not available on the 22nd.

ceaselesslyceaselessly RollerCoaster Tycoon 1 All Base Scenarios (OpenRCT2) 0:38:00 PC Link RollerCoaster Tycoon's longevity as a franchise is owed largely due to its open slate nature: you can do whatever you want in the game. So, naturally, some of us have decided to beat the game's base scenarios as quickly as possible! By using the game's marketing mechanics and optimized custom ride designs, in conjunction with the OpenRCT2 mod's turbo speed option, this run makes quick work of the classic simulator game's 21 scenarios. To my knowledge, this game has never been showcased at a speedrun marathon, so I think it would be great to get it some more exposure! Ride colors: In this run, two custom designs are used extensively. We can offer choosing the color of each ride as an incentive. The game features 24 different color options: black, gray, white, dark purple, light purple, bright purple, dark blue, light blue, icy blue, dark water, light water, saturated green, dark green, moss green, bright green, olive green, dark olive green, bright yellow, yellow, dark yellow, light orange, dark orange, light brown, saturated brown, dark brown, salmon pink, bordeaux red, saturated red, bright red, dark pink, bright pink, and light pink. If 24 is too many incentive options, we can restrict it to base colors, e.g. red, blue, green, etc. My schedule is completely open as of right now, so I can be slotted into pretty much any time slot on the marathon schedule with 1-2 weeks notice.
TheTerrificTracyTheTerrificTracy Kirby's Adventure Any% No Major Glitches 0:50:00 NES USA Link Kirby's Adventure is the second largest game on the NES, the largest for any region outside of Japan. It is stuffed with so many beautiful details and enemies. And so unfortunately, it does lag quite a bit. Good thing for us though we have a powerful ability that doesn't care about any lag! Tornado is very good, it travels at decent speeds and grants invincibility almost before and after it starts as well as all throughout. It and a few other powers like UFO will be seen as we travel through Dream Land to reach the Fountain of Dreams. There are clips in nearly every world in some levels as well as some skillful and perilous usage of Tornado. Not available on the 20th. Available any time between noon and midnight on the 21st. Not available on the 22nd
TheTerrificTracyTheTerrificTracy Cocoron Beat the Game 0:20:00 NES JPN Link A lovely and bizarre Japan only hidden gem. This one was made by some ex-employees of Capcom after finishing Mega Man 2. They thought to make something better than Mega Man, so they brought us a game about a dream world where you can make your own heroes. The run features a bit of menuing and a lot of mash intensive boss fights. Also has some very cute enemies and an amazing soundtrack! Not available on the 20th. Available any time between noon and midnight on the 21st. Not available on the 22nd
Riles_GRiles_G Final Fantasy Any% 1:37:00 PSP USA Link Final Fantasy is the first installment in one of the most well known series of games. The PSP version was released as an anniversary edition and introduced bonus content. The PSP release is a unique run for the title as it takes advantage of an equipment glitch only available on that system, this makes the run significantly more accessible to anyone interested. The leaderboard accepts emulator times (which is what I run on) right alongside PSP. Warrior Name (bidwar) Thief Name (bidwar) Black Mage Name (bidwar) White Mage Name (bidwar) Hellfire Chasm Bonus Dungeon-extra 10 minutes Nov 20th: 7pm-11pm Nov 21st: Noon-11pm Nov 22nd: Noon-11pm
GarbitheGlitcheressGarbitheGlitcheress Sonic Robo Blast 2 Tails 0:35:00 PC USA Link Sonic Robo Blast 2 is a sonic fangame made using a modified version of the doom legacy port of doom, and I feel that works well for creating a new experience similar in style to the classic sonic games. This run uses tails to fly quickly through expansive levels and defeat challenging bosses. Note that this run was done on version 2.2.6, which is the current version at the time of submitting but there may be a new version released with minor changes when this is reviewed so my run will likely be under v2.2.6 on the leaderboards if there is. 1: digital vs. midi music; this can be a rolling incentive where the incentive goes during my run and I swap to the one that's currently in the lead. i can go to the options from the game so this wouldn't add much time. 2: play the NIGHTs special stage, would be cutoff after red volcano, about 17 minutes into the run. an example of the special stage is in my undefined behavior run here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fS6rvn0pCSw&t=2499s . This would add about 3 minutes to the run. Nov. 20 and 21st: 6 AM ET - 3:30 PM ET Nov. 22: 6 AM ET - end of marathon
LinkaMeisterLinkaMeister Super Metroid Ascent 100% 1:22:00 WiiVC USA Link This is a romhack of Super Metroid. It is one of the best hacks out there. It has a completely new map divided into 3 zones. There are custom tiles, palettes and music that makes the hack visually and musically different and amazing. There are also some new items added. At the end of every zone is a point of no return. The 100% speedrun is fast paced filled with amazing tricks and great movement. This hack compared to Super Metroid vanilla is a completely different experience and not the same at all. Save or kill the animals only november 21st and 22nd between 10am-6pm est
LinkaMeisterLinkaMeister Solace Dreams New Game+ 0:45:00 PC Link This is a total conversion mod for doom 2. The mod uses voxels for the models.

TaymanNDTaymanND Pokemon Puzzle League 1P Stadium 0:40:00 N64 USA Link Pokemon Puzzle League is a popular match three puzzle game based on the Pokemon anime that just celebrated its 20th anniversary and had a new Super Hard WR set in August! The 1P Stadium Super Hard category is notoriously difficult for casual players and is only viable through an AI exploit which requires looking over at the opponent's screen while also chaining proficiently. This is a cozy, nostalgic, rapid-fire speedrun that doesn't overstay its welcome. Pokemon selection bidwar; Swag chain showcase (+10 minutes) Mon - Thursdays, available 5 PM - midnight ET Friday: available 5 PM - 3 AM ET (overnight into Saturday) Saturday: 11 AM - 3 AM ET (overnight into Sunday) Sunday: 11 AM - midnight ET

Orion_VTuberOrion_VTuber Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 Episode 1 0:45:00 PC USA Link This run takes all of the good points of a classic Castlevania style game, adds a more dynamic route due to character switching, and a lot of really neat movement due to utilizing Ultimate Zangetsu. None for now, I can check and see if I can find any. Nov 20: before 7:30 AM CT, after 5:00 PM CT Nov 21: all day Nov 22: all day
Orion_VTuberOrion_VTuber Jumping Flash! 2 Any% 0:30:00 PS JPN Link It's a neat first person platformer that has you chasing down a bunch of muumuus before hitting the goal in every stage.

UlvindUlvind House of Golf All Championships (Easy) 0:18:00 Switch Link This is a golf game that we play really fast. It is starting to get pretty optimized thanks to a rivalry between me and another player that is just starting to grow. Mostly comes down to execution and there's a couple skips that help us often skip the entire hole. Available from 7 UTC to 23 UTC on Saturday/Sunday. For Friday, would be between 17 and 23 UTC for now (might change)
Mr_ShastaMr_Shasta Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass Any% 3:20:00 WiiUVC USA Link This Zelda game is primarily touch screen-based, aside from some menuing shortcuts with the face buttons. The movement and strats are super interesting because of that. There's also some pretty neat glitches and tricks in the run, such as Necklace Skip, which is a frame perfect trick that allows us to offset our warp and get past the cyclone blocking the Isle of Ruins, skipping the need for the Regal Necklace. There's also the Hammer, which we can use to clip past objects and over gaps, skipping parts of dungeons and speeding up islands in some places. Also yes, jumping with the boat is faster. Filename: 8 characters max. There's also special characters people can put in the name if they wish! https://imgur.com/n3gIqZ1 November 20-22 from 11am to 8pm PST all 3 days
Mr_ShastaMr_Shasta Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land Meta Knightmare 0:35:00 GBA USA Link This is the first appearance of a guest mode in a Kirby game, in which you play as Meta Knight going through all the levels and bosses (except the final two) of Kirby Nightmare in Dream Land. Playing as Meta Knight has the added bonus of getting rid of the goal games at the end of each level, so this run just zooms on by! Meta Knight runs faster than Kirby, falls faster, and permanently has a sword in his hand. If you slash while jumping, you'll gain a bit more height and distance off your jump too, which is something we use a lot throughout the run. Willing to race it with anyone else who happens to submit this run. Same as my Phantom Hourglass submission.
Mr_ShastaMr_Shasta Warioware: Touched! Any% 0:35:00 WiiUVC USA Link I'm not kidding you when I say this, but this run works the same as Super Mario Bros. For any longer microgame we get, the faster we beat it, the more time is shaved off. If we're super speedy, we beat the game before the bomb timer even shows up at the bottom. If we're a bit slower, we beat the microgame halfway through the bomb timer. I employ lots of strategies to make the former happen more often than not throughout the run, such as drawing circles in the right spot before a certain microgame shows up so I can beat it optimally. Other than that, it's a matter of soft resetting at the right time, fast touch-based menuing, and beating the bosses quickly, while enjoying just how dang charming and silly the game is! Same as my Phantom Hourglass submission.
Mr_ShastaMr_Shasta Mario Kart DS All Missions 0:55:00 3DS USA Link Mario Kart DS' mini-turbo system works differently from other Mario Kart titles, where instead of holding a direction for a certain amount of time, you tap left and right back and forth with good timing to get a full mini-turbo. This allows you to speed back and forth while using mini-turbos, also called snaking. Mario Kart DS is also the only Mario Kart title to feature a mission mode, where the goal is to complete the objective of each mission while getting at least 1 star in each of them to unlock the final set of missions. There are also boss fights that you have to optimize! Draw an emblem of the viewer's choice: Mario Kart DS gives you the ability to draw a custom emblem for your kart, which will be displayed on the front of it for the entirety of the run. It's a 32x32 square, so FrankerFaceZ emote size. If you give me 2 minutes before the run starts, I'll make it look as good as I possibly can! (Real talk it'll probably be MS Paint quality given the tools I have to work with lol) Same as my Phantom Hourglass submission.
Heroic_RobbHeroic_Robb Halo 3: ODST New Game+ Legendary 1:40:00 XboxOne USA Link Halo 3: ODST has plenty of combat, a few tricks, some nail biting moments and funny dialogue. As of submission time, I am the WR holder for the run. IWHBYD and Grunt Birthday Party Skulls; IWHBYD has extra hidden dialogue that the AI will speak more frequently, Grunt Birthday Party makes Grunts' heads explode confetti when headshotted. Friday and Saturday at 9PM to 2AM central, Sunday at 7PM to 2AM.
ÆtienneÆtienne Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Any% 0:55:00 PC EUR Link Shantae and the Pirate's curse is a Metroidvania, the 3rd game of this license. This run contains many glitches including several OOBs as well as drops of random objects with which you have to deal to defeat the bosses. During the whole marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne Pokémon Red/Blue Catch 'Em All 2:22:00 GBA EUR Link This 1st generation of Pokémon is very glitchy. So much so that it is possible to catch all the 151 Pokémons with only one cartrige in under 2h20! To do this, we use a large amount of glitch, both impressive, fun and very interesting to explain. Rename Electrode. Rename Pidgey. During the whole marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild All Dungeons Bug Limit 2:53:00 Switch EUR Link The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Is one of the most popular switch games. In this game, Link is amnesiac, awakened after a long sleep of a hundred years by a mysterious voice which guides him in order to eliminate Ganon, and restore peace in the kingdom of Hyrule. Like the first game in the series released in 1986, the player does not receive many instructions and can freely explore an open world, solving different quests, shrines and puzzles, in addition to the main task. The AD Bug-Limit involves finishing the 4 dungeons of the game before killing Ganon, all without using glitch. There is no need to complete the corresponding quests, simply release the wonders and recover their powers. Save Epona or Kill Epona. During the whole marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Any% Bug Limit 1:00:00 Switch EUR Link The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Is one of the most popular switch games. In this game, Link is amnesiac, awakened after a long sleep of a hundred years by a mysterious voice which guides him in order to eliminate Ganon, and restore peace in the kingdom of Hyrule.

The Any% Bug Limit is to finish the game as quickly as possible without using glitch. A certain RNG is involved in the run especially on the end bosses. However it is a category mainly based on execution and proper routing. During the whole marathon.
BetoKosBetoKos Sheep Raider Any% 1:15:00 PC USA Link Because this game is a pure hidden gem for the PSX, I'm not even kidding. A mix between 3D platformer, puzzle and stealth all in ONE GAME! Great graphics and incredible soundtrack, also the speedrun strats skips a lot of intended mechanics and core items. The game pace never goes down, there is aways something going on and something cool to talk about. One of the best Looney Tunes games ever made and surely one of the best games from the 32 bit era. I'll be playing on the PC version which removes the loading screens and runs smother than the original, it's also the faster version of the game. At any time. Preferably on the weekend.
thugkjjthugkjj Sunset Riders (SNES) Any% Easy Cormano/Bob 0:20:00 SNES USA Link Sunset Riders is a 2D side-scrolling run and gun wild west themed! The game has a hitkill system, so part of the difficulty of the run is to dodge all the bullets as you advance during the levels, in addition, the strategies to kill the bosses are based on giving as much damage as possible without taking damage, making the fights very skill-based. incentive to play in hard difficulty. Estimate for hard: 25min available at any time
thugkjjthugkjj Sparkster (SNES) Normal 0:25:00 SNES USA Link A rocket fast 2D side-scroller that may well be about as stressful to watch as it is to play. A lot of time is spent almost-offscreen as the camera struggles to keep up with Sparkster's movement, and every boss fight is a damage-race to make sure they die before you do. available at any time

wolfman2000wolfman2000 Super Mario Bros. 35 Showcase / Exhibition (Exhibition) 1:00:00 Link Well, this is the only time this game can be featured due to Nintendo's policies. May as well show it off. I've unlocked all of the levels already and also made a separate tutorial video regarding my thoughts on each stage. This showcase can be made to have a flexible amount of time if required, but I will ask that it does not go over 90 minutes. Estimate shown is my ideal time. Just have to avoid any unexpected maintenance periods.
ripWSBripWSB God's Trigger Any% 0:40:00 PC Link Fast-paced, top-down shooter/hack 'n slash about an angel and a demon teaming up to stop the apocalypse by taking down the four horsemen. The demon character has a teleport ability that allows for a lot of OoB fun. Though a bit on the violent/graphic side as far as video games go, I must add. Nov 20 : 1900-2400 ET Nov 21 : 0700-2400 ET Nov 22 : 0700-2200 ET
ripWSBripWSB Stick it to the Man! Any% 0:32:00 PC Link Platformer about an alien taking over a normal guy. Mind reading/control gameplay with unique visuals and a quirky sense of humor that unfortunately mostly goes to waste when we skip basically all of the cutscenes. A couple of OoB skips but mainly just moving quickly. Nov 20 : 1900-2400 ET Nov 21 : 0700-2400 ET Nov 22 : 0700-2200 ET
Horza_BGHorza_BG Mouse Trap Hotel Any% 0:28:00 GB USA Link This game is quite the "treat". Starring Maxie of Mouse Trap (R) Hotel fame, we take a journey through what is the worst hotel mixed with terrible abstract art that makes MS Paint work look high class. Bop along to the music that will in-grain itself deep into your soul, join the speedwalk full of some surprisingly frame perfect jumps, damage boosts (?), and so, SO many cookies. Also mystery triangles! This game is bad, if thats not clear. Side note - I've upgraded my video quality capture and have a webcam now!. Sadly none, other then giving everyone the pleasure/mystery of experiencing this....game. The weekend my availability is pretty open, but weekdays I'm not free til the evenings, around 7pm CST at the absolute earliest.
EmeraldAlyEmeraldAly Assassin's Creed Syndicate World War 1 0:30:00 PC USA Link This is abundantly the most marathon-friendly game from one of the world's most popular franchises. Syndicate's great movement and stealth mechanics are well translated to this quasi-hidden "Easter Egg" campaign snuck into the base game. It's wall-to-wall parkouring action and has in fact recently been rerouted, so my attached VOD shows some old strats (it's a prior marathon run). Estimate is a little close to the time in the attached run, but should be quite safe once new strats are learned. (USA Pacific time zone) I get home from work a little before midnight, and my typical sleeping hours are around 5ish to noon. So midnight - 5 am is a good block, and preferrable for me, but if this isn't a round-the-clock marathon I can also sleep early and be available before work, between 9 am and noon (run must start *absolutely no later* than 12:30 pm) on the other side.
TalceraseTalcerase Mekazoo Any% 2:15:00 PC Link Well, if the soundtrack alone isn't enough, this run is very technical, and there's animals that are robots! I think the official term is mekanimal. Either way, this game is a blast to watch, a blast to play, and has a banger of a soundtrack. Dillo Inferno Bonus Stage (5 minutes) Vibe with the Universe (10 minutes) Any Availability
TalceraseTalcerase Puzezl Beat The Game 0:10:00 PC Link I need to redeem myself after the last marathon Any Availability
FocusSightFocusSight Mega Man X7 Any% 1:08:00 PC JPN Link Mega Man X7 is largely considered the black sheep of the MMX series, yet in spite of its 2D/3D hybrid style, speedruns of the game still have the same movement-focused speedrun style that a lot of the other titles maintain. Routing, likewise, plays a large role in MMX7; which Mavericks you go for when can have a large influence on the best possible time you could get. With that, we carefully plan through stages and figure out things ahead of time for a thoughtful yet entertaining run. New Game is a fair bit more tactical than its NG+ counterpart, since we use just Zero and Axl for the entirety of the run, have to collect certain Reploids for chip parts, and need to pay attention to a lower, more susceptible health bar. As such, much more cautious yet speedy movement is employed. Could pitch in a language incentive, between Japanese and English, since the voice acting is a huge thing in this game. If English wins though, I would need to change my estimate to 1:10:00, so add 2 minutes if that wins. Should be available all days at any time, but I prefer not going too late, so I'd say as a safety measure to not allow for any of my runs between 22:00 and 04:00 EST. I can do early morning though, and would be more than happy to do that.
GrampleGrample Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards 100% 1:15:00 WiiVC USA Link The 100% category of Kirby 64 doesn't just involve double-fire like any%, but a variety of ability combinations used effectively in order to obtain every shard and defeat the true final boss. This game has no beneficial glitches, so the route is purely an exhibition of game knowledge and execution. Minor optimizations have been implemented since we've last seen this game at a marathon, some of which have rarely seen use in actual runs. Defeat Magman with the ability combination of chat's choice (1min extra) Any time outside of Sun-Thurs from 2PM-4AM PDT.
GarbitheGlitcheressGarbitheGlitcheress Gitaroo Man PS2 Any% 0:55:00 PS2 USA Link Gitaroo Man is a challenging rhythm game with great music and a quirky aesthetic and story. This category will show off master mode, which makes the songs much harder, and impressive to watch. Nov. 20/21: 6 AM ET - 3:30 PM ET Nov. 22: 6 AM ET - end of marathon
GarbitheGlitcheressGarbitheGlitcheress Snow White In Happily Ever After Hard 0:18:00 SNES USA Link Snow White in Happily Ever After is an exploration platformer for the SNES. The difficulties change the amount of coins you have to collect, and "hard" difficulty requires me to find 60 coins then go to the exit, which adds a bit of fun routing to the levels but not overly so compared to the "difficult" setting which requires 100 coins. bid war to play as snow white or shadow man Nov. 20-21: 6 am et - 3:30 pm et Nov. 22 - 6 am et - end of marathon
cyndifusiccyndifusic Wii Sports Resort Golf 0:13:00 WiiU USA Link As demonstrated in its Summoning Salt world record progression last June, Wii Sports Resort 18 Hole Golf is a strange but skillful speedrun that requires mastery of the Wii Remote's motion controls and gives runners very little time to think. The 18 Hole category is the perfect dose of golf for MFSB - not too short, not too long. My PB of 11:45 is currently ranked 15th on the leaderboard out of 181 runs. With this run, I hope to show off the strats and mechanics of WSR golf and bring even more people into our community. Thank you for your consideration :) A possible bidwar could be which Mii I use for the speedrun. I can really use any Mii people want but specific notable ones I already have are Matt, Sans, and Lucina. A possible donation incentive would be to add the Special 3-hole course onto the end of the run, making it an All Courses run. This would add an additional estimate of 3 minutes. Friday: 7-9pm Saturday: 12-5pm, 7-9pm Sunday: 12-5pm, 7-9pm
DepressingChildDepressingChild Rayman Legends 5 Diamond Cups 2:40:00 PC USA Link This run is a tech heavy platformer consisting of cool boss skips, wall clips, and other movement options. In this run, I have to collect all Teensies in the main 5 worlds of the game. This includes getting all sideroom Teensies, beating every invasion level under 40 seconds, and of course, playing all the music levels! 9am-4pm EST on the 21st and 22nd
TreyaTreya Overclocked Any% 0:32:00 PC Link A transhumanistic freeware game that kind of plays like Celeste, but you keep yourself in midair for longer, along with an additional jab/pulse move for other purposes. Punch enemies to restore your dash. (this was in development long before the non-classic Celeste, mind you). I've tested the recording setup to make sure it doesn't lag this time. None this time...sorry! 1pm to 12am any day of the week (UTC 0 aka GMT, not BST)

CountGoobyCountGooby Super Metroid: Project Base Boosterless 0:40:00 SNES USA Link Project Base Boosterless is a cool variant on the Any% category by preventing runners from using the Speed Booster.

BahamutXBahamutX River City Girls New game 0:55:00 PC USA Link River City Girls is a side scrolling beat-em-up game similar to the old NES game River City Ransom. Instead this is taking the usual "save the girlfriend" trope, and flips it. It has amazing pixel graphics and a kickin' soundtrack. New to this run is the bidwar to choose who saves the boyfriends, Kyoko or Misako! 1. Goal, All-Bosses category +5 minutes 2. Bidwar, choose between Misako or Kyoko to save the boyfriends 3. Bidwar, subtitle language selection Any day 8am-1am CST
EpicCrossoverEpicCrossover Go Vacation Any% 2:10:00 WiiU USA Link Go Vacation is an open-world game where you visit Kawawii Island, and Island with 4 different Resorts and The Villa Grounds. Any% is to explore all of the Resort Activities as fast as possible. Once we complete an activity intended or not intended, a stamp will show up and will be known as the stamp dash. Once all stamps have been collected from all 4 resorts, the credits will roll and timing will end. I've done some runs for this game at marathons such as Resortfest:Revival and Retro Rainbow May, and I think others would like to see a very intruiging game that is very optimizable with shortcuts and potential skips(might not go for them because of the difficulty to pull them off). $5 donation and I'll show off Cave Skip during the run in the Snow Resort. It is very tricky to pull of but is possible with the correct alignment. I will be available the first day from 4 pm-11 pm most likely. (Available times are the same to my Goblin Sword submission).
BahamutXBahamutX A Fisherman's Tale Beat the Game 0:28:00 Vive USA Link There isn't much VR speedrunning yet, so here is a short fun puzzle game to show off its possibilities. Since it's a puzzle game the goal is to work ahead as much as possible. Great graphics and a heartwarming tale about a father and son. Any day 8am-1am
JaxlerJaxler Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights Any% 0:30:00 GCN USA Link Scoob go vroom. Sick movement, couple of tricky skips at the end let us skip like 3/4s of the game. n/a All Days Noon - Midnight EST
JaxlerJaxler The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie No Mindy Skip 1:20:00 X360 USA Link Game is busted. Lots of damage boosting, oob, and a plethora of 2-frame window tricks. n/a All Days Noon - Midnight EST
TexasWarriorTexasWarrior Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor The Bright Lord 0:50:00 PC USA Link It is a good speed game showing off many different skills and quick thinking to changing situations. Has slight RNG manipulation, and the best way to improve your time in the run is to improve your skill, rather than bugs or glitches. Any Nov 20-22
RavlinbayRavlinbay Final Fantasy 6 Worlds Collide 7/10 seed. 2:45:00 PC USA Link This is a new open world randomizer for FFVI. It takes a lot of cues from Final Fantasy 4 Free Enterprise, and makes for a great showcase of a new randomizer and a solid community. I am one of the admins and main commentator for the community, as well as one of the top racers. I can describe what is going on, various strategies, and various in depth game mechanics. I would also likely bring in a commentator to assist me with commentary as I am playing. One thing about WC that really sets it apart from other randomizers is that there is often multiple viable paths through a seed. Since it is not specific characters or espers required to complete the game, but just a certain number of them; branching paths can lead to two people running the same seed very differently. Starting character (Any of the cast of FF6.) If I need to defeat dragons to enter Kefka's Tower (4 dragons would add maybe 5-10 mins, 8 could add up to 30 mins. My estimate is quite generous, but an 8 Dragon Seed would likely get close if not go over a bit). Character Name (Can name at seed generation. Would only suggest a name for starting character since other characters are not guaranteed to appear). Additional characters/espers required for entry to KT. Each one would add about 2-3 minutes to the estimate. I am available nights EST. After 6PM until ~10AM the next morning.

This pack highlights different mechanics and level-design styles from tons of talented level designers and includes new levels, music, and backgrounds. 100 stages are shown in this run, which completes all stages of story mode. With a good mix of challenge, fun, and speed-based levels, this romhack would make for a great showcase at Midfall Speedball.

TempestMask1000TempestMask1000 Mega Man Xtreme 2 Any% (Zero Mission) 0:26:00 GBC EUR Link Mega Man Xtreme 2 is an obscure but fast game in the X franchise. Not only is it an example of a portable demake for a classic handheld done right, but it's also something I consider to be an enjoyable experience. -A bidding war deciding if I'm playing this run or Any% (X Mission). [Estimate: 00:28:00] -An incentive to see me tackle the extra mode, Boss Attack. I can either do the Mavericks from Xtreme 1, then the eight in Xtreme 2. [Estimate: 00:15:00] I should be available on all three days from either 1:00 to 6:00 PM or 8:00 to 12:00 PM. However, I'm currently looking for work, and if this affects my availability once this changes, I'll immediately let you know.
TempestMask1000TempestMask1000 Super Mario Bros. 35 Midfall 35-Player Battle Exhibition (Exhibition) 1:00:00 Link Super Mario Bros. 35, a game celebrating Nintendo's flagship character's anniversary for thirty-five years of games and memories. However, at the moment, the game is scheduled to be removed around March of next year, making this a limited opportunity to allow the audience to join in on the live play. I'm open to anyone interested in joining. Because I would like to know if anyone in the audience is in the match, I'd recommend having the players do some kind of motion (which I also would do) to signify they're in the live match. This will allow me to spectate them should I die. Otherwise, I'd move on to the next match.
SlurpeeninjaSlurpeeninja Where's Waldo? Any%, Easy 0:05:00 NES USA Link There's absolutely no reason this shouldn't be.

PARTYMAN_XPARTYMAN_X Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 All Goals & Golds All Tours 0:22:00 PC USA Link this game's pretty much a dog agility course and you're the dog (really you're a person on a skateboard. that'd be cool if you were a dog though). it's as if you took something like mario odyssey but put it in turbo. the remake brings the first two THPS games together into a cohesive career mode with a few more goals than the originals, plus they replaced the physics with a blend of THPS 4 and Tony Hawk's Underground's physics, meaning the game is just a bit faster than the originals were. it's a good time all around I'll be around the whole time, so whenever is fine.
TempestMask1000TempestMask1000 Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters Solo 0:12:00 Arcade USA Link As the second of two Mega Man games released for arcades back then, and available as unlockable content through the Mega Man Anniversary Collection, Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters presents a fun, boss rush gameplay through a Mega Man 7 graphic style. Though a world record speedrun can be relatively short in length, its variety and flexibility as an arcade title ultimately make it a marathon safe and a perfect backup run. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CRlHxWfjAQ Bid war possibilities include: -Which character I use (Mega Man, Proto Man, Bass, or Mega Man 8's Duo). -Which in-game scenario I play (Search for Wily!, Rescue Roll!, or Recover the New Parts!), or a possible incentive is to convert the run's category to All Stories. [Estimate: 00:40:00] I should be available on all three days from either 1:00 to 6:00 PM or 8:00 to 12:00 PM. However, I'm currently looking for work, and if this affects my availability once this changes, I'll immediately let you know.
PARTYMAN_XPARTYMAN_X Thrasher: Skate and Destroy New Game 0:18:00 PS2 USA Link skateboarding games are hot right now, so why not look at the game that almost started it all? thrasher: skate and destroy is a skateboarding game that took a more realistic approach to the sport than THPS did (and even tried to include tony hawk himself!). enjoy the ps1 rendition of several famous skate spots and one of the earliest implementations of ragdoll physics in a game I'll be around anytime during the event.

Bidding war possibilities include: -Which character I use (Mega Man, Proto Man, or Bass). -Which version of the game (CPS1, which is the version available on the Mega Man Anniversary Collection, or CPS2, which, in my honest opinion, has the superior sounds and music). -Which in-game scenario I play (Mega Man 1-2, Mega Man 3-6, or Mega Man 7), or a possible incentive is to convert the run's category to All Courses. [Estimate: 00:25:00] I should be available on all three days from either 1:00 to 6:00 PM or 8:00 to 12:00 PM.

deathlinedeathline PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure Any% 2:25:00 Wii USA Link PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure is one of many lesser-known spinoffs for the Pokémon series, but that doesn't mean it isn't entertaining! Join Pikachu on his adventure through the PokéPark as he befriends many different Pokémon from up to the 4th generation. The Any% category showcases how important routing decisions, near-perfect optimized movement, and RNG can factor into a speedrun where not a lot of time can be saved easily.

TempestMask1000TempestMask1000 Shovel Knight Showdown Story Mode 0:17:00 WiiU USA Link As a highly well-known indie game title of the modern gaming era, Shovel Knight still managed to keep the ball rolling with its supposedly last update bringing in the final DLC and extra versus mode. I feel this game hasn't seen much marathon attention recently, and showing off this battle mode's story campaign would be a great way to fix that. Incentive possibilities include: -A bidding war deciding which difficulty I play (which can be Easy or Medium). [Estimate for Medium: 00:21:00] -A bidding war deciding which character I choose (I'll offer Shovel Knight, Shield Knight, and Baz to start, but I'm open to using others). -An incentive to have me bring in a friend for a one or two "just for fun" match(es). The max time will be five minutes for the fight(s). I should be available on all three days from either 1:00 to 6:00 PM or 8:00 to 12:00 PM.
