TonyOgbotTonyOgbot Mighty Switch Force! Any% NG+ 0:20:00 PC USA Link Once you get the credits to roll in this puzzle platformer, you are awarded the Mighty Shot, which blows away all enemies and obstacles in a single hit. Due to its strength, it is balanced (?) out by pushing you backwards after every shot you take. The Any% NG+ route takes this disadvantage, and turns it into a wild advantage that introduces sequence breaking and fast-paced movement that you can't get in any other game. This will need some practice on my end, but I'd be willing to derust Any% NG+ Hyper Levels on Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition if there's need for incentives. Please see my SGDQ 2016 run for an overview on what that looks like: https://youtu.be/kEed_n02Uh4 Weekends past 8PM (in case I'm on-call)

LmjacksLmjacks Celeste Any% 0:36:00 PC USA Link Celeste is an indie momentum-based platformer that follows its main character Madeline through her struggles to climb Celeste mountain, and has been a crowd favorite at events like GDQ. The any% speedrun is a fast paced sprint that shows off a wide variety of movement tech, much of which is built into the game itself, and some that players found after release. I have poured a lot of time and energy into this run, just recently crossing the milestone of a sub 30 time, and would love the opportunity to show the game off at this event! There could be a bidwar for the filename (12 character max unless i edit the settings file), and perhaps an incentive to play with badeline variant on. I'm not familiar with how much the event raises so I'm not entirely sure how much this incentive should be for, but maybe something like $50-$100. Note that both of these would need to be met/resolved before the run I should be available all three days, but may not be staying at the hotel, so would prefer a time 11am-11pm just in case I'm not rooming on site

Name the Character - Bid war Talk to Noober - donation goal (keep it small it's not a big thing or a secret), extra 30 seconds no big deal. Fight Drizzt - donation goal.

It has some pretty interesting glitches to show off in it, and is about 80 minutes shorter than 100%, so the time commitment is a bit shorter. A Diddy Kong Racing glitch exhibition may be a good incentive. There are many glitches in DKR, but only about half of them are useful for speedruns. The other half is just fun! Saturday the 7th or Sunday the 8th at any time of the day would be best for me.

LavanFirestormLavanFirestorm The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Randomizer (Exhibition) 2:00:00 Link Synack and myself showed off the ALTTPR Multiworld client at MWSF 2019. However a fair amount has changed with the randomizer since then. They have added many modes that can make runs easier or harder. I believe that can make for some interesting donation incentives!

LavanFirestorm Sprite bid war, plus an open incentive that reduces the amount of delay between player switches the more money is donated. We'd start off at 64 frames (default), but if more people donate before the start of the run to the incentive the delay gets lower. Actual numbers would need to be figured out (also would your system support this?). Lavan and I would be available Saturday during the day, we'd prefer not to run too late in the evening (start past midnight or so). We'd also be avaialble from about 9am to 2pm to start on Sunday. Synack has to drive back to Des Moines on Sunday, and he requests he doesn't start too late on Sunday.

RazorflameRazorflame Nintendo Puzzle Collection (Panel de Pon) VS COM EASY - V-HARD 2:30:00 GCN JPN Link This game takes all of the other Puzzle League games that I have submitted and puts all of them to shame. This game has some of the toughest computer opponents you can play against in any Puzzle League type game, as well as the hardest AI manipulation in any Puzzle League game to pull off. This game can also showcase what an incredible Puzzle League player can really do when they have to deal with opponents that can throw mystery chains and other constant garbage at them at all times and can really be entertaining to watch at higher levels of play. NOTE: The estimate given for this game is extremely generous because massive amount of RNG that is involved with this game. The incentive will only increase this RNG and make the game even more unpredictable because I would have to play and defeat every CPU opponent without the AI Manipulation, which could cause many of the later opponents to potentially take up to 20 minutes to defeat. Incentive: Play S-HARD and V-HARD WITHOUT AI manipulation (+30m) 12PM-6PM CST daily.
RazorflameRazorflame Dungeon Hearts Full Game - Hard 1:30:00 PC USA Link Extremely difficult run that is very entertaining to watch at high levels. The run has about a 5% chance of me not being able to finish the run, but this is my preferred category to run because it's a lot more exciting for me to play and it is a lot more exciting to watch. Even though my PB is just over 50 minutes, I am giving an estimate of 1h 30m to give myself two opportunities to finish the run for this marathon, though this will also lead to me possibly finishing quite a bit ahead of estimate. None. 12PM-6PM CST daily.

lemonademilklemonademilk Tony Hawk's Underground Beginner Any% 0:40:00 PC USA Link Tony Hawk's Underground is a game that many people remember playing as a kid, and the speedrun has several skips and tricks that I think people would find entertaining, as they skip parts of the game they knew as a kid, or because they look fairly silly.
