SilentHeroSilentHero Final Fantasy X-2 HD 2:40:00 PC USA Link An excellent showcase of what can happen when you give a speedrunner limit combinations of creatures and items to make the perfect team. This run uses the creature capture mechanic to bop an otherwise lengthy RPG down to a very manageable time. No heavy glitch abuse, no OoB, and most of all no grinding, X-2 is a fast and frantic run that is marathon safe and a ton of fun for both the runners and viewers watching. Watch 1,000 words cutscene. Adds ~2 minutes. Incentive has been met at every marathon its been in. One of the best moments of the game that would be skipped normally. any
lumardylumardy Super Mario Sunshine Any% 1:25:00 Wii EUR Link Super Mario Sunshine any% is a very enjoyable Speedrun to watch because of its incredibly technical movement and range of glitches, from cutscene skips to even skipping an entire world. This run has been shown to be a crowd pleaser from Bounceyboys SGDQ 2016 any% run, and the AGDQ 2017 any% race, as well as 1100+ people having ran any%. A glitch showcase which would take around 10-15 minutes which would show some interesting glitches outside of the any% run. I will be free 12pm-8pm British Time on all days that the marathon is running.
quoquo Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion 1:20:00 Switch USA Link You are not a squid, you are an octopus but you still shoot ink and try to not get yourself blended. Octo has a bunch of different missions and only one of them is lame, but each one of them feels fresh and uses different guns and mechanics so not only does the run stay technical, it doesn't get stale either. It also has a similar aesthetic to the marathon's layout. Octoling Gender (bid war), Attempt to beat secret final boss (incentive, add 10 minutes) 9am-3am EDT any day

quoquo Pokémon Snap any%/100% 0:23:00 N64 JPN Link Although not a typical speedrun, Snap has a hidden layer of depth to control your speed through camera movement and lag reduction, and requires careful precision to not miss a shot and maximize our points. Any% only requires us to get to Mew, while 100% requires us to get over 20 more Pokémon to submit to Oak, giving it a bit more variety in the end game. Filename (5 characters, bid war), Upgrade the run to 100% (Incentive, 27 min estimate) 9am-3am EDT any day
quoquo Pokémon Snap 250k Points 0:35:00 N64 JPN Link Although not a typical speedrun, Snap has a hidden layer of depth to control your speed through camera movement and lag reduction, and requires careful precision to not miss a shot and maximize our points. 250k pushes the boundaries of both the speedrun and the high score aspect of the game by adding in a ton of difficult optimizations and special shots to end the run with 250 000 points. Filename (5 characters, bid war) 9am-3am EDT any day
FranzcorrFranzcorr Ratchet & Clank NG+ 0:23:00 PS3 EUR Link Cool movement, interesting run usually in the afternoons (UTC+1)
SilentHeroSilentHero Final Fantasy Any% 3:00:00 GBP USA Link The OG of the series, the one that started it all. This run is typically done on PSP and uses heavy glitch abuse to get endgame gear at the start of the run. I however am not about that life. This run is on GBA so the route has us restricted to only items, gear, and spells that you can acquire normally. Furthermore this route does not use the "13 tile" mini game to garner early money either. This is as pure of a run as you can possibly make. Generally speaking any% uses this mechanic, but I have devised a route that foregoes this and maintains a competitive time on the board. Name the 4 party members (1 Warrior, 2 Red Mage, 1 White Mage) any
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (GBC) Any% 1:25:00 GBC Link The Boy Who Lived meets...Final Fantasy? Everyone is aware of the famous 3D action platformer version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone but not nearly enough people have seen the 16-bit, turn-based RPG version, and I think it's time to change that! This run features some insane tricks, including a glitch that takes us to level cap in the first 10 minutes, and death warp abuses that require frame perfect inputs. Not to mention some perfectly ugly NPC sprites. Run on GC Gameboy Player. Harry Potter Cosplay Open due to COVID-19, will change if anything
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (GBC) Any% 1:35:00 GBC Link Chamber of Secrets for GBC is another installment of the turn-based RPG Harry Potter games. Unlike its predecessor, Harry gets help from Ron and Hermione in combat, which creates some interesting dynamics and exploits. Not to mention, Quidditch! Any% gets to the end as fast as possible. We do this by performing several glitches, including cutscene skips, enemy attack skips, and boss cheeses. The run will also feature the select glitch, which is newly discovered tech that enables us to skip some previously unavoidable sequences. Run on GC GameBoy Player. Harry Potter Cosplay Open due to COVID-19, will change if anything
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Pokémon Red/Blue Any% Glitchless 2:05:00 GBP Link Pokemon Red is one of the most popular games to speedrun, and the marathon route has a lot of unique changes. The game utilizes RNG manipulation for catching your god tier Nidoran and a Paras for HM use, use of red bar mechanics and instant text to skip some dialogue and jingles. The game is also perfect for racing, if we have other submissions for the category. We all want to be the very best! Played on GC GameBoy Player. Nickname Rival Catch Mewtwo or Mew (add 10 minutes) Open due to COVID-19, will change if anything
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Cartoon Cartoon Summer Resort All Episodes 0:15:00 Web Link Ok, yeah I know, here me out on this one. CCSR is a very fun and very quick trading RPG that features several popular characters from your favorite Cartoon Network shows from the early 2000s. The run itself features optimized movement patterns, item swaps, and a level skip that saves ample time. Note: this game is not run on an emulator. It is run using a Flash preservation program, which is completely legal and was created to save Flash games from extinction. Open due to COVID-19, will change if anything
CCNeverenderCCNeverender Pokémon Snap Any% 0:22:00 N64 JPN Link I'm the snap guy Generally available in the afternoon and night. I will have a better idea of my work schedule when we get closer
Lake_ootLake_oot The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time MST 2:30:00 WiiVC JPN Link Shows off a lot of the game and a lot of neat tricks, pretty marathon friendly. File name can be bid on. afternoon-evening any day
Lake_ootLake_oot The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Glitchless 4:10:00 WiiVC JPN Link Sure to wow some people since the "Glitchless" title makes it out to be boring but after its admittedly boring first 30 minutes, it really explodes into a very technical and mechanically impressive run file name can be bid on afternoon-evening any day
redrumsoxredrumsox Harry Potter Quidditch World Cup Beat World Cup 0:45:00 PC USA Link This is a fun category of fun game from a recognizable franchise. Quidditch World Cup is a relaxing game to watch and easy to understand for viewers. Would likely be a race. If accepted for the Marathon I will find other runners for a race. Incentives we have done in the past for this run are donations to decide what country the runners choose for the run. The options for teams are: England USA Australia Japan France Germany Spain Nordic Team I would be available at all times from the 4th through the 6th. I would have less availability on the 7th due to college classes. If a race is done I will coordinate with other runners for times the group would be available.

TasselfootTasselfoot Filament Any% 0:55:00 PC USA Link Filament is a cool puzzle game with a neat story. There are a few glitches at the start of the run, but it's mostly about memorization of 200 puzzles, movement, and solution routing. Eastern US. 10am - 11pm any day
ThePackleThePackle Tony Hawk's Underground 100% 2:00:00 PC Link THUG1 was a featured speedgame by SpeedDocs a few years ago. Now, ThePackle is here in the pinnacle category of THUG1 - 100%.

Choose Skater Name (Choice) Choose Pro Team (Bidwar): Birdhouse, Girl, Zero, Flip, Element Saturday: 11 AM to 11 PM Sunday: 11 AM to 10 PM
DaymanAAADaymanAAA Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader Any% Standard Ship No Upgrade 0:45:00 GCN USA Link I fly and shoot. Fast. Damn fast. You like death warps? I've got those. Sequence breaks? I've got those, too. Autoscrollers? One, sadly. It's a cool run, though. Bonus Missions (4 levels in total) (I'm trying to think of other cool incentives I can do. Let me know if you have any suggestions) I am NOT available on Saturday until after 4:00pm.

SkurrySkurry The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (2019) 2:00:00 Switch USA Link All Secret Seashells is a very unique category that has not been showcased at a marathon yet. It has a lot of unique overworld skips and showcases some fun minigames. Run the Game in Hero Mode would be a good one, the run would stay the same length but deaths might add a couple minutes Bring Marin to the Crane Game would also work, as it would add less than a minute and its quite a funny cutscene 12pm EST or later would be preferred
orcrist_gcorcrist_gc the legend of zelda: breath of the wild Master Sword 1:50:00 Switch USA Link Master Sword Restricted is designed around the idea of getting the master sword as soon as possible without glitch exploits. These outlawed glitches are apparatus or cut scene storage to make a wrong warp, or heart duplication glitch. This category is a nice showcase of the current glitches used in botw speedruns. It's also nice and short and not too complicated to understand. Do boss rush at the end of the run, extra 10 minutes. I'm flexible
vysualsvysuals Hollow Knight 3:00:00 PC USA Link HK has been shown at plenty of marathons, but it has never really gotten a chance to shine with the 1xx% categories. 106% is the max % on the main NMG patch of the game, showcasing everything in the base game and the first 2 DLCs. It features a TON of boss fights, almost every area, all the main collectibles, and gets to show off plenty of tricks and minor glitches. Even some of the things that aren’t very difficult to execute can be very visually impressive, and deserves a chance to show off IMO. Bid War to Kill/Spare the Nailsmith Donation Goal to kill Myla Donation Goal to take off charms for the Radiance fight Saturday/Sunday 10am to 11pm, Monday-Friday 7pm to Midnight
Silo_SimonSilo_Simon Shrek Extra Large No Levels Early 0:27:00 GCN USA Link Despite being a Shrek game, this game is actually a really good speed game with really tight movement, sort of reminiscent of Super Mario 64, but with Shrek. This run has been shown off in multiple marathons, including Calithon, Big Bad Gameathon, and SGDQ 2019. No Levels Early bans the use of the barrier skip, which is a very inconsistent glitch that lets you skip right to the last level of the game after beating the tutorial. No Levels Early shows off the strats for all of the levels, which is a very entertaining watch. There are 10 levels in total full of wacky, fart-boosting action. Any time, preferably from 9am-11pm mountain time. I would highly prefer to not have 2 runs back to back, like at least one or two runs inbetween just to give myself time between commentaries.
Silo_SimonSilo_Simon Bee Movie Game (Wii) Any% 0:53:00 Wii USA Link JERRY -- This game is a sort of neat movie game based on the best animated movie to hit the face of planet earth, Bee Movie. Any% requires us to play through all story missions in the game, which consists of us fighting various other insects, pollinating flowers to collect honey, suing the human race, etc. This game plays sort of like a dog-fighting shooter game, flying around many levels and shooting at stuff, and collecting up honey (which is the in-game currency) so that we can purchase flight passes, which is required for us to play the later levels. All Speedway Races (Est. additional ~6 mins of time) Any time, preferably from 9am-11pm mountain time. I would highly prefer to not have 2 runs back to back, like at least one or two runs inbetween just to give myself time between commentaries.
abomination1212abomination1212 Final Fantasy IX PSX 9:40:00 PS2 USA Link Final Fantasy IX is an amazing speedrun that really shows off all the mechanics of the game. The run itself involves high amounts of RNG which keeps every run fun, fresh, and exciting. This leads to a lot of improvisation throughout the run. This run will also feature a brand new route with quite a few large changes that that were not in the most recent GDQ run. Fight Hades Saturday September 5th - Monday September 7th
CleanSeraCleanSera Fable: The Lost Chapters 100% 3:15:00 PC Link You may remember Fable: The Lost Chapters from the Speed Docs videos "Fable: The Lost Chapters - Any% Speedrun World Record History" parts 1 and 2. The 100% run showcases much more of the game and the community's brain storming than the Any% run does, even utilizing tricks mentioned in the Speed Docs videos that were tested not to be Any% viable, but are a perfect solution for 100%. Glitch Exhibition 10-15 minutes I won't be available until 8PM EDT September 4th, and would generally prefer a time friendlier to the UK for the sake of commentary.
SuperViperT302SuperViperT302 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Any% 3:15:00 Wii USA Link SMG2 Any% entails collecting 70 Stars to unlock Bowser's Galaxy Generator, then getting the Grand Star from there to finish the game. Within those 71 Stars, there are crazy gravity exploits, momentum abuse tricks from moving platforms, crazy boss strategies, and of course, the use of Yoshi's infinite flutter glitch to cross otherwise impossibly large distances. While a bit lengthy, there's plenty of downtime to allow for in-depth explanations of everything that happens in the run and even for donations here and there. I am currently 2nd place for this category and have run this in many marathons before (including SGDQ 2019), all to positive reception. The Perfect Run (6:00) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpnM7SkKgYQ Mon/Tues/Wed - Can't start earlier than 1 PM, can't finish later than 11:30 PM Fri - Can't start earlier than 1 PM Sun - Can't finish later than 11:30 PM Thurs/Sat - Available all day
SuperViperT302SuperViperT302 Pac 'n Roll Remix Any% 0:27:00 Wii USA Link Most Pac-Man games have severely underrated speedruns, and this game is no exception. Released in 2007 (and rereleased in 2010) as a Wii update to the DS game of origin, PnRR features Namco's iconic ball... literally as a ball. The run consists of going through all 25 levels as quickly as possible, which involves rolling Pac-Man around at the speed of sound whilst collecting Pac-Dots to get past the many Golvis Gates scattered throughout, a few of which are skippable. The game's updated physics allow for many different exploits that speed up the run dramatically, such as the ability to boost on lava, being able to fall large distances to skip huge portions of vertical levels, and using a broken Light Pac power-up to allow for huge sequence breaks. With these crazy exploits, combined with non-stop fast-paced gameplay and a variety of optimizations over the past few years, I, as the world record holder for this game, believe this game is a must-have for any marathon. Mon/Tues/Wed - Can't start earlier than 1 PM, can't finish later than 11:30 PM Fri - Can't start earlier than 1 PM Sun - Can't finish later than 11:30 PM Thurs/Sat - Available all day
SuperViperT302SuperViperT302 Super Mario 64 70 Star 0:55:00 N64 USA Link Without a doubt one of the most popular speedgames out there. SM64 is widely known for its insane tricks, tight jumps, and for having some of the most technical movement in any speedgame ever, with new optimizations continuing to be found left and right. 70 Star completes the game as fast as possible without using glitches to skip any star doors (meaning no BLJs or MIPS Clips allowed), and showcases some of the fastest and most technical stars in the entire game. 1 Star bonus run (15:00) - an example is in the submission video I used Mon/Tues/Wed - Can't start earlier than 1 PM, can't finish later than 11:30 PM Fri - Can't start earlier than 1 PM Sun - Can't finish later than 11:30 PM Thurs/Sat - Available all day
frozenflygonefrozenflygone Powerpuff Girls: Him and Seek Any% 0:25:00 GBA USA Link Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice! Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup fly into action to finish a scavenger hunt and bring the bad guys of Townsville to justice in record time. The unique movement, combat abilities, and skills of the three girls make Him and Seek a dynamic run. There's even a Mojo Jojo frogger minigame! Any% completes the story of the game as fast as possible, with no sidequests. New out of bounds glitches have been recently discovered (https://streamable.com/7tf8yl) which cuts out nearly a minute if the clips go well. Would love to showcase this hidden gem in a marathon setting for the first time! My teaching schedule for fall isn't set in stone and may change, but here is my worst case availability. Sept 4: 5PM-11:59PM EST Sept 5: 9AM-11:59PM EST Sept 6: 9AM-11:59PM EST Sept 7: 5PM-11:59PM EST

frozenflygonefrozenflygone Celeste Farewell Individual Level 0:26:00 PC USA Link Celeste is a popular indie platformer and one of the most competitive speedgames at this time. Chapter 9: Farewell is a DLC released this past year that requires speedtech and is a significant increase in difficulty compared to the any% run. The speedrun is dynamic, incredibly fun to watch, and beautiful both in scenery and music. My PB is a sub 20 (19:59), a very competitive time for this level. Name Madeline (no time) Wavedash.ppt (2 mins) link to ppt reading: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/622357552?filter=highlights&sort=time My teaching schedule for fall isn't set in stone and may change, but here is my worst case availability.

frozenflygonefrozenflygone EAT GIRL Any% 0:15:00 PC USA Link EAT GIRL is a top-down dot eating action game featuring precise movement and a variety of enemies. The speedrun consists of a mix of deterministic and improvised level strategies, overworld optimization, and speed maintenance. Any% showcases the fastest 18 levels in a race to Escape to the credits. EAT GIRL is a really interesting game and speedrun, having been featured on the GDQ Hotfix as a small but mighty community. GREG IS HERE!

frozenflygonefrozenflygone EAT GIRL All Standard Levels 0:23:00 PC Link EAT GIRL is a top-down dot eating action game featuring precise movement and a variety of enemies. The speedrun consists of a mix of deterministic and improvised level strategies, overworld optimization, and speed maintenance. All Standard Levels completes the 24 levels beatable prior to post-game, with more difficult and RNG-heavy levels.

frozenflygonefrozenflygone Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Games Any% No Minigame Skips 0:41:00 GBA EUR Link Little Hamsters, Big Adventures! Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Games is an Olympics-style sports title made by AlphaDream for the Game Boy Advance. I control Hamtaro and the Ham-Hams to try and complete the tournament as quickly as possible. Any% No Minigame Skips showcases all of the games and the fastest ways to complete each event regardless of place. This leads to some really fun strategies such as tripping instead of jumping in pole vault, intentionally running into tennis balls, and other fast shenaniganry. I really love speedrunning Hamtaro and would be excited to show it off in a marathon for the first time! My teaching schedule for fall isn't set in stone and may change, but here is my worst case availability. Sept 4: 5PM-11:59PM EST Sept 5: 9AM-11:59PM EST Sept 6: 9AM-11:59PM EST Sept 7: 5PM-11:59PM EST
RiekeltRiekelt Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Any% 0:25:00 PC EUR Link GTA San Andreas is a normally long one, but only last year did they find an exploit where you could put a certain value inside the mission-counter, and therefore make an Arbitrary Jump in Script (or AJS). While the leaderboard is basically a Hall of Fame, since it takes 100's of attempts to get even 1 run in, since the run is millisecond-precise (not frame, that'd be easy), this is going to be a showcase. I'll try it legit first, and afterwards I can use a save so I can show what the run is meant to look like, hence the higher estimate. Generally from 10:00 to 02:00 in the CEST timezone
RiekeltRiekelt Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Funky Mode 1:40:00 Switch EUR Link Funky is cool. This game is highly criticized for it's amazing control and good level design, and Funky Kong makes moving through these stages feel amazing Generally 10:00 to 02:00 CEST timezone
RiekeltRiekelt Ape Escape 2 All Monkeys 1:55:00 PS2 JPN Link I catch monkeys, all of them. The controls are pretty amazing and bollocks, this being the series that revolutionized controls with dual-analog controls. DLC monkeys: the JP version excludes 3 monkeys, which are sonGoku from DragonBall, a wizard, and a monkey called Yoshi. Make me a completionist! Dancing show-case: I'll perform the hardest dance on this game's dancing minigame. This will add 5-ish minutes. Generally 10:00 to 02:00 CEST
MASHMASH Omega Boost Any% 0:45:00 PS USA Link Omega Boost is a hidden game that has amazing frame rate and very tight and responsive controls, created by developers Polyphony Digital that brought us Gran Turismo. Fast paced arcade style action, ideally you would like to do the whole run deathless which is hard enough but you also only have 5 attempts within a run to clear it in. This is what makes hard mode runs very dangerous to attempt in marathons because doing that deathless is incredibly hard since you always carry over health between stages and it never gets refilled even after a death. Hard Mode run upgrade. Cutscene% run upgrade. Zoneplay Exhibition extra challenge level attempts. (10-15 minutes). Friday and Saturday between 4am and 8am EST. Sunday any time after 3am EST.
MASHMASH Escape... O.D.T Any% 999:59:00 PC USA Link O.D.T is a 3D action, rpg, puzzle platformer created by Psygnosis who brought us the Lemmings, Rollcage and Wipeout series who were renamed to Studio Liverpool to this current day. This entire run is an incentive, this game is incredibly unforgiving and will try very hard to always kill the player every chance it gets. Consider this a semi-blind run attempt, my sanity and suffering for the sake of charity. Character Selection may be a thing but drastically alters play style and routing required. Friday and Saturday between 4am and 8am EST. Sunday any time after 3am EST.
ZelkysZelkys The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Any% 0:45:00 Switch EUR Link It's a very active Speedrun, with a lot of glitches and really interesting since it's the last Zelda Game, it has been previously featured in GDQs Kill / Save The Horse at the end of the run I don't know yet when I'll be available since I need my planning from my work
jeremythompsonjeremythompson Spyro: Year of the Dragon 100 Egg 1:00:00 PSTV USA Link Spyro 3 is a classic platformer for PS1 with a wealth of glitches and interesting routing. I hold the record in the submitted category and have experience commentating Spyro runs in marathons. No preferences.

DaymanAAADaymanAAA Smart Ball Any% 0:25:00 SNES USA Link Of all the platformers that released on the SNES in 1991, this is one of them. Wonky physics and delightful music give Smart Ball a lot of unique charm, and optimized movement and boss kills make it a short, quality speedrun. I am NOT available on Saturday until after 4:00pm.

StevetvonlineStevetvonline New Super Lucky's Tale All Main Levels 1:50:00 Switch USA Link Originally released for the Xbox One and PC in 2017, this revamped version appropriately dubbed New Super Lucky's Tale released on the Nintendo Switch in November 2019. Even though this game is fairly new, the speedrun for this 3D platformer has had some groundbreaking discoveries already, the big one being a glitch that allows us to scale any wall infinitely! With constant tricks always being found and optimized I think it is time to show what this game can do. Available any time and day
StevetvonlineStevetvonline New Super Lucky's Tale NG+ All Main Levels 1:30:00 Switch USA Link Originally released for the Xbox One and PC in 2017, this revamped version appropriately dubbed New Super Lucky's Tale released on the Nintendo Switch in November 2019. Even though this game is fairly new, the speedrun for this 3D platformer has had some groundbreaking discoveries already, the big one being a glitch that allows us to scale any wall infinitely! With tricks still being found I believe that it is time to show what this game is made of. All Day, Every Day
StevetvonlineStevetvonline Beyond Good & Evil Any% 2:00:00 X360 USA Link Join Jade and Pey'j as they try and stop the DomZ Army and saving the people of Hillys on the way. This run has made a HUGE overhaul since finding a trick last year that cuts 40 minutes to an hour out of the game. With some tight movement in a stealth mission and a couple of bosses, this beautiful game is a sight to behold. This had a good showing at GDQ Hotfix and BSG Marathon and what better time since the announcement of the second game a few years back. All Day, Every Day
StevetvonlineStevetvonline Fox N Forests Any% 0:50:00 XboxOne USA Link Created in 2018 by Bonus Level Entertainment, this 16-bit 2D platformer has a very nostalgic feel. Run, swipe, and shoot arrows through 8 unique levels and 3 bosses all while using your season changing knife to manipulate the world around you and get to the final boss, the witch. This game is a site to behold and is a beautiful game to look at and has a fantastic soundtrack as well. All Day, Every day
StevetvonlineStevetvonline Yoku's Island Express Any% 0:12:00 XboxOne USA Link This short run is nothing but speed, from the time you are dropped onto the island till the time you beat the final boss there is no stopping this little bug. The run has two major skips in the run that allow for us to skip every single boss and end it within a very short time. Don't blink otherwise you will miss this wonderfully exciting pinball adventure game. All Day, Every Day
StevetvonlineStevetvonline Disney-Pixar Brave Any% 1:30:00 X360 USA Link If you are a fan of the movie Brave then throw everything out the window because that story is not told here. We play as Merida, the main heroine of the story in one isntance of the story which is to change her mother back to normal. Travel to many worlds through the portals that the witch has so kindly left for you and jump, roll, attack and... solve puzzles in this top down family friendly "shooter." Although this game does not have any glitches it is very fast paced and at times tense with difficulty increasing with each level. Merida can have 2 outfits to start off with, her Royal Gown or the Guard Mail and whichever wins I will play as Options: Royal Gown Guard Mail All Day, Every Day
SkurrySkurry Snake Pass NG+ Any% 0:40:00 PC USA Link Snake Pass is a very unique game that is not often showcased, full of level breaking skips and a great soundtrack. Could do a bid war between the classic skin and the 8-bit skin, which would not add any time to the run. anytime after 12pm EST would be preferred
AzmiAzmi Banjo-Kazooie Any% 1:15:00 N64 USA Link Banjo-Kazooie in general is a highly movement intensive game but recently there has been breakthroughs with new glitches called bitclips which now allow for MMM early AND CCW early. So not only will this run showcase both new tricks but it already has tons of entertaining BK movement, other out of bounds tricks, and 3 full levels of solid bee movement due to RBA. Should be available any day from 11:59 AM ET-11:59 PM ET
PodzPodz Super Mario Galaxy Any% 2:35:00 WiiUVC JPN 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 N/A 11AM-1AM all days.
vysualsvysuals Hollow Knight All Skills 1:05:00 PC USA Link It’s never gotten a great showing in a marathon aside from the console version (which is much less interesting IMO) and in it’s relatively short length you get to see a bunch of skips, tricks, and bosses Kill Myla before the Hollow Knight? Weekends any time Weekdays 7pm to 11pm CST
FiresplitterFiresplitter Hello Kitty Kruisers All Tours 0:35:00 Switch EUR Link Because the game contains a questionable AI and some very questionable "features" which creates a very odd but still interesting run to watch. Character selection: Hello Kitty Keroppi Badtz-Maru Chococat My Melody Purin Tuxedo Sam Kuromi Hangyodon Cinnamoroll Will be available for the whole event
FiresplitterFiresplitter Bleed 2 Endless Normal 0:07:00 Switch EUR Link Because it is a short and sweet category that is action packed and randomized, which forces a huge highlight on different movement techniques in bleed 2 All of the event.
FiresplitterFiresplitter Bleed 2 Story New Game Easy 0:27:00 Switch EUR Link Bleed 2 is a very movement intensive game with plenty of boss fights sprinkled in which creates a very fast paced and action packed run with relatively little downtime. All of the event

bigcrunchbarbigcrunchbar Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (DS) Any% 1:30:00 DS USA Link As someone who has run the game for over a year now, I believe that it is a great speedgame that deserves more recognition. The large variety of out-of-bounds glitches allows us to skip decent chunks of most levels. The game also has satisfying platforming which makes it fun to watch. On top of that, you are constantly obtaining new abilities, such as weapons and transformations, so the run doesn't get stale (there's even a few shmup levels!) Our small community has really poured their heart into discovering new tricks in this game, and I want more people to see our hard work. The game has many different skins for the player character, which would make for a great bidwar. And as a plus, they're purely aesthetic, not affecting gameplay. There are 17 default skins, which is definitely way too many, but I think these 5 would be good choices: Dude With Hat, Lobster, Ninja, Cymbal Monkey, and Mecha Cat. (can provide pictures) (EST) Me and my commentator will be available later into the day on September 6th and anytime throughout the day on September 7th.

RaikouRiderRaikouRider Super Metroid + A Link to the Past Combo Randomizer V11 Normal Logic 3:30:00 SNES USA Link One of the most mind-blowing randomizers out there, this shuffles a full set of items between A Link to the Past and Super Metroid. Items from Zelda can be found in Metroid, and vice versa, thanks to four cross-game portals in specific locations in each game. I've ran this in a large number of other events and am open to racing others who submit. ALTTP Sprite Choice SM Sprite Choice Save/kill the animals Friday: After 4:30 PM CST Saturday/Sunday: Open
RaikouRiderRaikouRider The Legend of Zelda Randomizer - 8 Triforces 1:30:00 NES USA Link The randomizer for the NES Legend of Zelda is the one that put randomizer on the map among speedrunners. Almost everything except the overworld layout can be shuffled. I've been involved in the community since the first tournament in 2016. Goal will be to collect 8 Triforce shards to enter Ganon's Lair and rescue Zelda. Default flagset is Tumult (settings for first tournament) but can be upgraded to more complex flagsets via donation incentive or if staff feels the other flagsets are more interesting. Open to racing others who submit. File Name (3 words of 8 alphanumeric characters; cannot be ZELDA) Maelstrom Flagset (+15 minutes; 1:45 total estimate) Consternation Flagset (+30 minutes; 2:00 total estimate) - VOD for this flagset: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/452833407 Friday: After 4:30 PM CDT Saturday/Sunday: Open, preferably not graveyard
RaikouRiderRaikouRider Super Mario Bros. 3 Randomizer - Warpless 0:45:00 NES USA Link The premier platforming randomizer and one of the most accessible randomizers out there. All of the stages and fortresses are shuffled with one another - you won't know which stage you get until you go in! All of the enemies are in their normal places, but you won't know which enemies are there until you play, either. This can render many vanilla strategies useless, and makes the run more about reacting rather than knowing P-Speed strategies. The goal is to proceed through eight worlds and defeat Bowser. Tentatively will be a race with LesleyPro_04, another community veteran. LesleyPro_04 Mario sprite color Friday: After 4:30 PM CDT Saturday/Sunday: Open
RaikouRiderRaikouRider EarthBound Randomizer - Ancient Cave 2:00:00 SNES USA Link The Earthbound Reshuffler is one of the oldest randomizers. This will feature the popular Ancient Cave mode. In this mode, all storyline content is removed and all of the maps are shuffled together into a giant 9-floor maze. There are NPCs that request specific items, and giving the requested item can cause you to jump ahead several floors. The goal will be to navigate the maze to the end of the 9th floor while collecting the necessary equipment to defeat Giygas. The Skips category would allow the use of these warps, and the No Skips category would forbid them. The estimate will remain the same regardless of category. NOTE: Completion times can vary wildly - if this goes significantly under estimate, staff may need to insert a short backup run into the schedule if we aren't behind. Bid War: Skips or No Skips Sprite selection - Uses top 4 choices, can provide a list of the best ones. Otherwise if SRC allows, perhaps these could be write-in? Friday: After 4:30 PM CDT Saturday/Sunday: Open, preferably not graveyard
TreyaTreya Xenogunner Full Game 0:13:00 PC Link A new boss rush game that came out a couple of months ago - a spiritual successor to Alien Soldier in a way. It also came with the itch.io Justice for Equality bundle. In this entry I will play as Delta, the high-damage melee character. Rules of the game secret level. 1:30 estimate, added to the beginning of the game. If the incentive is met during the run, I would do it after I beat the main campaign. 9am to 7pm BST (GMT +1).
ShiningFaceShiningFace Doom Eternal Any% 0:30:00 PC Link Do you like extremely glitchy runs that showcase fast movement and huge skips? Then the any% of doom eternal is for you! This fresh take on the doom franchise features huge combat arenas and tricky platforming... but we skip all of that! Extremely fast, a popular title, and a quick but entertaining run to watch. player skin choices, weapon skin choices Basically free availability at the moment
ShiningFaceShiningFace Doom Eternal No Major Glitches 1:30:00 PC Link Perhaps glitches aren't really your cup of tea? NMG Inbounds for Doom Eternal is a mix of extremely precise movement and hair raising combat sections that even the most hardcore of Doom fans would be in awe of. This category has picked up a lot of steam lately and is showing no signs of stopping. The game is popular, fairly new, and a great way to get the blood pumping! player skin choices, weapon choices Basically open availability at this time
Yoda_CageYoda_Cage Kororinpa: Marble Mania All Normal Levels NG+ 0:32:00 Wii USA Link Kororinpa is a largely forgotten launch title for the Wii. It's a classic game in the ball-rolling/marble genre, but with a twist: all movement is controlled by the tilting of the Wiimote, with full 360 degrees of control. This type of control allows for very precise gameplay and many crazy skips by jumping across levels. Overall, it's an intense run that's very visually entertaining. I've been playing this game for many years off and on since I was a kid, so I know I would be able to pull off a good run in the marathon. I hope I'll have the chance to do so! 9/6, 12PM-2AM 9/7, 12PM-2AM All times EST
OutrageousJoshOutrageousJosh SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated 1:00:00 PC USA Link Note that I am submitting the No Taxi Glitch subcategory! BFBB Rehydrated is a remake on the beloved Battle for Bikini Bottom, yet this remake's speedrun is nothing like the original! This game is still very new, but the community has worked very hard thus far to absolutely tear this game apart! I would love to show off this game's progress so far! Language Option bidwar: English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, German, Polish Should be good at any time!
AragoldMateAragoldMate Resident Evil 7 Any% NG+ Easy 1:33:00 PC JPN Link Resident Evil 7 is an excellent engaging run which over the last 3 years has become incredibly optimised. I hope it urges some to pick up speedrunning if they havent already too since its a very beginner friendly run to initially pick up. Resident Evil is also a very recognisable name Additional Note: Stuttering in video was an issue which is now sorted and will not happen during marathon https://www.speedrun.com/re7 I am unsure of my availiability on the 7th of september but otherwise completely free
StarrlightSimsStarrlightSims Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (PS2,GCN,Xbox) Any% 2:15:00 Xbox USA Link This is a really cool run featuring OoB, Unintended Jumps, Challenge Skips, Precise Movement, Frame Perfect Inputs, Unintended Cutscene Skips. This would be the first time that the run is shown of outside of the Potterthon Marathons, and would make a really interesting addition to the marathon, as it's always well received during Potterthon. There's also a few moments of pure RNG in the game, to the point of not being able to know at all whether something will happen, which is always fun to leave the audience guessing! Potential Language Donation War (There's 5 Languages in the game that don't change the time of the run) (Adds 0 minutes) Glitchless Softlock% Run (Adds 8 minutes) Glitch Showcase (Adds 15 minutes) Whenever should work for me
StarrlightSimsStarrlightSims Animaniacs: The Great Edgar Hunt Any% 1:35:00 Wii EUR Link This is a really fun game based on the Animaniacs TV series, which already gives it a sense of familiarity with the audience. The game is an early 2000's 3D platformer, so of course it is completely broken. Expect Swim in Air, Levels Early, Out of Bounds, Wall Climbs, Wall Clips, Puzzle Skips, Boss Fights and much more. Every level in this game has a ton of crazy tricks that get weirder the further into the game you play. The game has a harder route that is still being timed, so has not yet had a full run completed, so the run is even more crazy than the video already is! Here's a marathon Run showing off the more complex route (While it was still in it's infancy, so it's been massively refined since, and still is being further refined: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5r8ooENsuQ) N/A Whenever should be fine
StarrlightSimsStarrlightSims Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (GBA) Any% 1:20:00 GBA EUR Link Known for being one of the more brutal Harry Potter games, this game has come a long way since I started running it back in 2015. Using many unintended mechanics and collisions, you can do a lot of stuff that the developers didn't intend you to do, which makes for an interesting run. The main thing is that death takes you all the way back to the beginning of an area, so one slip up and you could lose a lot of time, so it keeps the audience on their toes as to what's going to happen! N/A Whenever Should be fine
StarrlightSimsStarrlightSims Mario vs. Donkey Kong Any% 0:55:00 GBA USA Link A fun 2d puzzle platformer that happens to forget that it gave you most of the moves you can use, so you spend a lot of the game completing the puzzles in completely unintended (And sometimes glitchy) ways. This is one of those runs where the levels get more and more crazy as you go into the game, so watching the difficulty level rise higher and higher is always fun. This game is also being ran by Violin at GDQ in August, so would definitely be cool to see it in other marathons also! (Note: Video is not my run, but shows off the most recent strats) Whenever should be fine

1davidj1davidj F-Zero X Expansion Kit All Tracks 1:25:00 N64 JPN Link N64 fast car game with cool precise tech. Also shows off the rarely-seen courses exclusive to the F-Zero X Expansion Kit for the N64 Disk Drive. Very speedy run with lots of flying through the air and other unintended shenanigans. Friday Sept 4 8:30pm EST-11:59pm EST Saturday Sept 5 12:00am EST-11:59pm EST Sunday Sept 6 12:00am EST-11:59pm EST Monday Sept 7 12:00am EST-11:59pm EST
1davidj1davidj F-Zero GX All Tracks (Snaking) 1:20:00 GCN USA Link The king of racing games. Exceptionally high speeds, precise handling, too much tech to even be finished explaining by the end of the run. Demonstrating the real man's category of Snaking which uses a trick so powerful it was banned to its own category. Don't forget your seatbelt. Friday Sept 4 8:30pm EST-11:59pm EST Saturday Sept 5 12:00am EST-11:59pm EST Sunday Sept 6 12:00am EST-11:59pm EST Monday Sept 7 12:00am EST-11:59pm EST
StarrlightSimsStarrlightSims Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (GBA) Any% 1:25:00 GBA EUR Link This game is a really cool race game, as it comes down to a mix of good RNG and playing well with the RNG you get, so it can go back and forth in the time of one fight. This game has no glitches as well, so it's just pure optimisation of movement and battle mechanics. KonceptioN2 Could potentially show off some of the minigames in the game (adds 5 minutes) Whenever should be fine
DaravaeDaravae Unreal Tournament 3 Any% (Casual) 2:20:00 PC Link Unreal Tournament III Any% promises to be a fast paced speedrun combining the best of interesting movement mechanics (such as walljumping, rocket jumping, damage boosting and more) raw aim (sniper rifle headshots) and RNG, spawn manipulation and improvising on the fly in certain situations into one big almost 2.5h speedrun. The Unreal games themselves barely ever get shown in marathons. This would be a chance to show off at least one of the most developed Unreal games in a marathon. I'm CEST timezone. Friday 4th I'm available from 7 - 11pm CEST. Rest of the days (if any) could be any time except midnight.
teddyrasteddyras Zombies Ate My Neighbors Any% 0:40:00 SNES USA Link ZAMN is a highly optimized and challenging run where we have to manage limited ammo and health kit pickups to beat 48 levels and a few bosses all on 3 lives while trying not to get eaten by giant ants or giant babies. a lot of people seem to have fond memories of this game whether or not they played it themselves since it's just a fun title. character choice: Zeke or Julia weekdays: between 6:30 pm and 11:30 pm Pacific time weekends: between 11am and 2 am pacific time
teddyrasteddyras Enter the Gungeon All Bosses 0:45:00 PC USA Link EtG is a modern classic that people seem to like and be impressed with at speedrun marathons. All Bosses is the most fun category, I go to every floor and fight every boss that's there, including all 5 secret floors. character choice: 1) bullet 2) convict 3) huntress 4) gunslinger pet the dog: I'll pet the dog companion either before or after the run. If I'm playing as huntress, I can do it throughout the run tbh, if not I switch to her real quick at the end or the beginning. weekdays: between 6:30 pm and 11:30 pm pacific time weekends: between 11am and 2am pacific time
safety_mansafety_man Super Ninja Boy Any% 3:00:00 SNESClassic USA Link Extremely obscure game - never been in any marathon, no leaderboards exist, only 2 other speedruns not by myself exist on twitch/youtube (one on JP version). That being said, this is an action-RPG that features multiple game elements such as a top-down overworld map, 2D platforming, beat-em-up style enemy fights, and turn-based major boss battles. Any time from Sept 4th - 7th
wolfman2000wolfman2000 Lenna's Inception Perfect Ending 1:20:00 PC USA Link Play as a teacher hoping to rescue her students in this rogue-lite adventure heavily inspired by the 2D Legend of Zelda series. While this is a rogue-lite, deaths generally do not penalize too much, and there are additional safeties that can be gotten throughout if needed to complete the run. This ending is successful in not only stopping the chaos in the kingdom, but also saves the children in the end. Art style: 8-bit vs 32-bit. Determines graphics and music. 99% functionally identical gameplay. Character name: 12 chars limit. Cosmetic. World name: 12 chars limit. Determines how the world is generated. I should be off work for Labor Day, so the times below are when I am able to run. Friday: 5 PM - 10 PM EST Saturday: 10 AM - 10 PM EST Sunday: 10 AM - 10 PM EST Monday: 12 PM - 9 PM EST
wolfman2000wolfman2000 Groove Coaster: Wai Wai Party Active Controls Showcase (Exhibition) 1:00:00 Link Sometimes we just need to listen to music, groove, and let loose. Groove Coaster allows for doing all three while also allowing for scoring high with motion controls. This block shows a variety of charts and songs that can be aired on Twitch without muting the vod as I show how the game can be fun even if you sometimes get a miss or two due to Joy-Con limitations. None here.
BodenBoden Wuppo any% 1:10:00 PC Link Wuppo is a real hidden gem. A mix of RPG elements, platforming, lots of bosses, a cute aesthetic and great attention to detail makes this a very enjoyable experience to play, and I would say to watch as well. The run doesn't have too many crazy glitches and is over all pretty tame so sit back, relax and enjoy the cozy ride. Any time between 6 am and 10 pm GMT on any day of the marathon
BodenBoden Ape Out Any% 0:30:00 PC Link You are an ape and you have to get out. Any% includes a warp glitch that makes the run fairly flimsy, possibly turning it into a Warpless run if I miss all the warps. Any time between 6 am and 10 pm GMT on any day of the marathon
BodenBoden Brume Any% 0:13:00 PC Link Brume is a very very tiny souls-like game. The run consists of mostly combat, so it's about 10 minutes of straight action. Any time between 6 am and 10 pm GMT on any day of the marathon
BodenBoden Eastshade Any% 0:17:00 PC Link You make 4 paintings for your mother. Eastshade is an extremely buggy game and there's rarely a time where we aren't doing something that isn't intended. Any time between 6 am and 10 pm GMT on any day of the marathon
BodenBoden Ape Out Warpless 0:35:00 PC Link You are an ape and you have to get out. Warpless includes every level of the 4 albums. The time is pretty malleable due to general factors of randomness in level layouts, but nothing outrageous. Play the additional single level Break In. Save the monkey. (adds about 6 minutes) Any time between 6 am and 10 pm GMT on any day of the marathon
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (GBA) Any% 1:30:00 GBA Link A classic Harry Potter story is set up with turn-based RPG elements, as well as updated graphics and overworld spell puzzles. It combines the wildly successful elements of the PC/Console versions while sticking with the RPG elements that tell the story in the best possible way. The run is a blast beginning to finish, and doesn’t utilize glitches at all, despite being the Any% category. Open to racing with anyone else who submitted as well. Harry Potter Cosplay Open due to COVID-19, will change if anything
FunyunsFunyuns Shadow Complex Remastered NG+ Blindfolded Bad Ending 0:15:00 PC USA Link Solid donation incentive, consistent game mechanics make it a safe bet despite the blindfold. The video I'm submitting is actually one of the worse runs I did, but because it utilizes backups and alternative setups I feel it reflects the consistency I'm trying to convey. I'm super biased, but I think this category is fun and different enough to merit inclusion as maybe a lower level donation incentive. It certainly doesn't carry the weight of a Mike Tyson's Punch Out, or Mario Maker, but it's still a video game completed without the video. Quick side note: I'm hoping to get NG+ Insane 100% up to snuff in time to submit to give you more to work with, just submitting this now while I have the time. Anyway, hope you're both doing well. Good luck getting through all the submissions! Not sure what this could go up against w/respect to a bidwar, and it I think it would be inappropriate for me to suggest a number for you to meet. I'd be happy doing this with no incentive, so it's really whatever you feel is appropriate. Monday (09/07) from about 1 to EOD. Gonna be in a different state for the rest of the marathon and traveling back that morning, no hard feelings if this breaks it.
BodenBoden Eastshade 100% 1:40:00 PC Link You are a painter. Paint 4 places on Eastshade for your mother and help the inhabitants with their endeavours on the way. 100% shows off this beautiful game with all it's flaws. Tons of glitches and an introcate route leave lots to explain. Do the Any% run I submitted before Any time between 6 am and 10 pm GMT on any day of the marathon

SableDragonRookSableDragonRook Spyro Reignited Trilogy (Console & Time Trials) Dragons/Orbs/Eggs 0:52:00 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. Highly prefer weekday before 4pm EST, but I can make weekends work
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. This is a great run for just chilling, as people love to relax with Trico. I'm currently the 2nd place holder. Watch Cutscenes. 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). Highly prefer weekday before 4pm EST, but I can make weekends work
ZelaZela Super Monkey Ball Master 0:20:00 GCN USA Link Very intense and always a crowd favorite run. Possibly donators can choose what monkey i play as. Either Aiai, Baby, Meemee, GonGon. Preferable night time EST on a weekday
RoyzogaRoyzoga Final Fantasy VII Remake Any% 5:30:00 PS4Pro USA Link Final Fantasy VII Remake is an incredibly fun run. While it is easier than it's Normal counterpart, it allows us to further demonstrate fun tech, insane skips, and offer great insight and commentary as to what is happening in the run! - Take stairs instead of elevator. - Aerith High Five Glitch - Voice language bid war (Eng, Jp, Fr, Ger) So long as I have a week's notice, I'm available any time, any day.
NixxoNixxo Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets 100% 1:35:00 PC USA Link The Harry Potter series on PC is the childhood game of a lot of people. This run is also very broken and consists of pretty much 100% fast paced action which doesnt get disturbed by any cutscenes. We can manipulate a platform so that both Harry and Prof. McGonagall fall all the way down to the bottom of the grand staircase during a cutscene. All the days probably, pls give me EU friendly times
NixxoNixxo Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Any% 0:55:00 PC Link The Harry Potter series for PC is a nostalgic childhood memory for a lot of people. This game has some super broken physics that enable Ron to become Tarzan and other interesting glitches as well as super goofy cutscenes Dont rly have any in mind for this game tbh All days, pls give me an EU friendly timeslot
stuserstuser A Bug's Life Any% 0:26:00 PS2 USA Link A Bug's Life is a game which has a large amount of 3D platforming but it is fairly objective and collectibles based. A lot of the routing in this game depends on momentum storage. There are a handful of abuse of textures and cut scene skips as well. A race between us will be different than the average race. We are on two separate leader boards since the tricks between the consoles are so different. In saying that we take the same route and our times are very close which will make for a interesting race. It will be a great way to display the differences between the consoles a show off the various skips which this game offers. ThermalSquare September 6th or 7th works best, I should be able to make it work any day, Thermals availability may be different. The best time for me is between 8am EST - 1am EST
ThermalSquareThermalSquare A Bug's Life Any% 0:26:00 N64 USA Link This is a short and sweet speedrun with plenty of cool tricks involved. There aren't many glitches involved so movement and skill really show through in the run.

ExiledPrinceExiledPrince James Bond 007: Nightfire Any% 0:45:00 GCN USA Link Pretty cool action FPS game from the classic James Bond series.

N/A N/A Saturdays: 3pm PST to 11pm PST Sundays: 3pm PST to 11pm PST

EyeOf_NewtEyeOf_Newt Super Fancy Pants Adventure Any% NG+ 0:25:00 PC Link This is such a cool speedgame. The physics allow for some wild tricks and optimizations. Not to mention, it's from a widely recognizable game series that got its start as flash games. The NG+ category lets us start with full health, power, and moveset upgrades, as well as the ink dash and ink shot. These all give us even more opportunities for tricks throughout the run. Upgrade to Invisible% (Makes all enemies, blocks, rails, and some platforms invisible) +2 Minutes I'd be available all days, from 7am-10pm CST.

Ruvyn1820Ruvyn1820 Run Saber Any% co-op 0:25:00 SNES USA Link Run Saber is a 1993 Run and Gun that was not widely played but is a short and sweet game, close to our hearts. There are not many runners and we are not aware of any co-op runners aside from ourselves. We would love to see this little known gem make it to the main stage. Adelheidsuede None All

MyOhMykeMyOhMyke Live A Live Any% 7:05:00 SNES USA Link Live A Live is a non-traditional RPG with a little bit of something for fans of all genres to enjoy. From Bakumatsu Japan to American-style Westerns to Sci-Fi Suspense to Mega Man Battle Network x Street Fighter, each of the games eight chapters takes on a distinct style, back by the musical stylings of Yoko Shimomura, of Kingdom Hearts and Super Mario RPG fame. Roughly 75% of the game has no random encounters to deal with, so this is gonna be about as quick and dirty as it gets for an EXP route, and there's no cash to grind, either. Name Bidwars (requires fan translation, +10m to estimate) All Major Endings: Any% is actually "Any% Good Ending," this would add the Bad End and Never End to the run. +30m Friday: 9PM Eastern Start => Monday: 2AM Eastern finish
MyOhMykeMyOhMyke Cosmic Smash Any% 0:15:00 Dreamcast JPN Link Cosmic Smash is a mix between squash and Breakout/Breakthrough. The game is 'set,' as much as a sports game can be set, in something like a subway system. Every few stops, the player can choose which line to follow, making it possible to chase monumentally high scores or the speediest trip through the rails. Even when taking longer routes through the subway system, there are ways to play each stop efficiently. Ending Bidwar: There are five distinct endings to the game that could be put up to a bidwar. Alternately, the bidwar could simply be Left vs. Right to choose a direction at each split. If a running Left vs. Right bidwar is used throughout the run, the options could be something more interesting than just Left/Right. Crunchy/Smooth Peanut Butter, Pineapples/No Pineapples on Pizza, etc, where one options is left and the other is right. If there is no ending bidwar, this will be a Japanese Paper ending run. Character bidwar: Different characters are available through in-game codes. Options are listed on the game's Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmic_Smash "Secret" End: Play the game in a way to face the bonus one-on-one Cosmic Smash Duel at the end. +3m. Friday: 9PM Eastern Start => Monday: 2AM Eastern finish
AdelheidSuedeAdelheidSuede Run Saber Any% Co-op 0:25:00 SNES USA Link Run Saber is a little known run and gun for the SNES from 1993. Ruvyn1820 and I played it as kids and love speedrunning it now. We're unaware of any other co-op runners and it'd be great to give the game a small spotlight. Ruvyn1820 None All
FunyunsFunyuns Shadow Complex Remastered NG+ 100% Insane 1:05:00 PC USA Link Show me another game where you can dangle in thin air and teleport across the entire map. Hundo applies 95% of the glitches available to the game and showcases how busted foam is. Playing on the hardest difficulty also offers more excitement than most of the other categories available. I've managed to make 98% of the run marathon safe and consistent, with padding in the estimate for inconsistent warps that are only slow and not run-ending (excluding any "That's never happened before" moments). There are reasonable arguments to be made against metroidvania speedruns. If it's not hard carried by nostalgia or game breaking glitches, it's generally less interesting. I think Shadow Complex conveys a certain level of both considering it's explosion in 2009 on the 360 arcade and aforementioned explosive foam shenanigans. Then again, this is still subjective and really up to the viewer, so I'll leave you with this: I think this game is hype and has some real meat to it with a lot of chill moments for good pacing. If you need a solid hour filled with donation reads, big glitches and explosive fights with giant spider robots, this is your category. Quick note: The audio-visual experience has improved recently. Feel free to skip around this video to get a feel for my current setup: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/691556837?t=0h14m45s Maybe have donation incentives during the run for blindfolded bad ending. I'm still cool with that being a standalone run and hundo being cut if that's what would be easier. Monday (09/07) from about 1 to EOD. Gonna be in a different state for the rest of the marathon and traveling back that morning, no hard feelings if this breaks it.
xem92xem92 Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal All Titanium Bolts 1:25:00 PS3 EUR Link This game features incredibly satisfying and difficult movement, as well as wild out of bounds and a completionist approach to the game with the addition of the 40 secret titanium bolts. Will make for a wild spectacle riddled with despair and difficulty. Pretty much good for whenever tbh
