The Discord still exists, and while the original focus of games the site wouldn't accept has faded, the other half of that is speedgames that get majorly overlooked. We never got enough interest to really start back then, but that can always change.

We could perhaps also easily pivot it to games that maybe other marathons wouldn't accept.

Here's a permanent link this time.

Oh...This is somewhat similar to Obscure Speedruns Club, where the 'obscure' game got a chance to be in the spotlight. It's a niche community, but it's nice to see something similar to that.

Sadly, this idea never came into fruition. 😭

No, it didn't. It would have been nice to have, a lot of these games don't get enough love because they can't get a leaderboard.

It's still something that could happen someday.

It's just that a lot of it's initial purpose was invalidated by the rules changes.

I still think it'd be a neat thing to show off games with very small communities or games that just fly under the radar.

just got invited to a discord server moderated by @GooberGoober that seems to stem from a similar idea, the welcoming page states : "If only you'd been faster... is a welcoming speedrun community for games that don't have speedrun communities. Most of the games we support aren't hugely active as speedrun games, but that doesn't mean they have to stay that way!"

not sure how relevant this is but just in case : https://discord.gg/KeuAPnQ

Maybe Flash game marathon? XD
I think that obscure games marathon is good (because I am a obscure game speedrunner :/)
