Forums  /  Speedrunning  /  Small games

Same as others here: I'm the only active runner for a couple of games I run.
But the smallest of these games is Zeliard with only 2 runners in total. My last run was half a year ago, the other runner's 6 years ago.

Zeliard's incredibly impressive for the time it was made in. Anyone who likes running sidescrolling action games might be interested, as long as you can work past the age.

It's on the list of games I'll eventually get around to speedrunning, though I do need to finish it casually first.


I had just submitted my first speedrun - Layers of Fear. It's a nice little game I had played few weeks ago for the first time, and... to be honest the speedrun idea just came out of somewhere, I cant say it was planned. I just enjoyed let's playing the game for my channel, and then I finished it for a second time as a full gameplay with no commentary, and then I came back for it for the third time, just to see if I can finish it from start to the end in a decant time.

Layers of Fear seems like a good starting point in anyone's speedrunning experience. You spend most of the time walking and cutting corners as quickly as you can, solving puzzles and remembering where you can just turn around and avoid sections of the game. I'm not saying its easy, but there are less complex mechanics in it.


Cool, but this is about small games. You don’t seem to be one of the few runners, because there are a lot. You can use the advertisement thread instead.

Oh, I thought small games are counted by their development studio or general popularity, not speedrunning numbers, pardon me :))


Valid point, the title is slightly misleading.

@ODW. I know how frustrating the later levels can be. I remember putting the game at rest for a few years because I couldn't figure out how to get to the end of the last level. Good luck!

Maybe Stickman Climb on Poki? Literally a knock-off of Getting over it with Bennett Foddy. Lol


I played a bit of stickman climb and it's a decent webgame.
