Freedom Planet 2 The long-awaited sequel to Freedom Planet. High-speed platforming and spectacle boss fights. The sequel adds the additional wrinkle of being able to choose item loadouts.

Carol is just one of the characters available. There's a secret level that may be a good donation incentive to do separately after the main run, would add less than ten minutes.

I know frogmoss was interested in doing a Carol race. Not sure who's submitting the other characters but a choice bid war is also viable.

Resident Evil Village This is a submission of the recently released Shadows of Rose DLC, which expands on and closes out the Winters' story that was started with Resident Evil 7. This DLC takes place inside the megamycete's consciousness, which means that basically anything can happen and is unrealistic even by Resident Evil standards, meaning we literally get magic powers in the run. Some cool skips and really tight boss fights due to playing on Hardcore difficulty make this run quite fun to watch. Status: Accept

Egg Shuttle is the NG+ mode of the game, getting rid of cutscenes, map traversal and loading times, as well as opening up new boost and wisp routes.

Yo! Noid 2: Game of a Year Edition Yo! Noid 2 is the fan-made sequel to the NES Noid game. The game takes Noid on a 3D platforming adventure through a variety of pizza-themed stages which utilise the Noid's wallrunning and yo-yo grappling to the fullest. The run is short and sweet, featuring plenty of fun tech of varying complexity.

NTS showcases the run without dialogue text obstructing the view for part of the run, but forgoes a very cool skip.

NMS showcases most of the levels fully, while still having fun tech all around.

BS Legend of Zelda This is the game I was running when I received the raid from SGDQ 2022, and chat was clamoring for me to submit it to the next GDQ, so here we go. As for the game itself, it is an official Zelda game released by Nintendo, and yet somehow also extremely obscure. It was originally distributed in segments via the Satellaview, but this version pieces all the sections together so it can be played in full in one sitting. The gameplay is very similar and also very different from the original LoZ. Status: Accept

Yolanda Yolanda is a brutal Amiga platformer that very much was Kaizo before Kaizo was a thing. You play as Yolanda to remove a curse from Hera by overcoming the 12 Labors of Hercules. This involves platforming through very unfair stages that have fake floors that kill you, invisible floors that kill you, ropes that dissapear that kill you, enemies that kill you, and also the floor you start the level standing on kills you. It almost looks like a good game when played well, but this is prime kusoge. Status: Accept

After the precision test of Basic Training, the game's 33 missions demand a grueling array of pixel perfect strats, AI manips and high stakes movement trials from the runner, where even one small mistake can prove costly.

Yakuza Kiwami A remake of the first PS2 Yakuza, Kiwami is a nonstop blast of ferocious fights, owing to an early sequence break that makes us ridiculously OP for the entire run (we cheat in a fight with Majima), but the run remains tense since being optimal requires running essentially hitless.

The odds are heightened in the high difficulty Legend category, where every enemy is a serious threat, or on the flip side, the New Game+ run allows us to employ many weapons and moves not seen in a regular run.

The Lion King The Lion King is a 1994 platformer that has a bit of a notoriety for its difficulty. The speedrun makes the game look like a breeze.

The differences between Easy and Difficult are the lives and continues count, and the amount of hits certain enemies take. Easy mode is certainly much more marathon safe, considering Game Overing (back to level 1) is on the table for Difficult.

Sonic Blast Can be a race with s-two
Yeah, the Sonic Jam run at AGDQ22 was bad, but at least it used assets that we all know. Sonic Blast makes our characters shiny and take up almost as much screen estate as Jam.

This short game, squished onto the Game Gear is a quick platformer that is most impressive at Sonic speed. With sharp inputs, clever boss strategies and cryptic levels made trivial, Blast packs a punch and makes for a nice chunk of Sonic to show off.

Sonic Blast Sonic Blast is a Sonic game of all time. While not the most fondly remembered game, it has some charm and is unique, with its art style and inclusion of two playable characters. The game certainly makes for a sick speedrun too, with its movement and level design, which can be trivialized with mastery of the game.

Sonic Advance 2 The second of the sonic advance trilogy. This game introduces boost mode and tricking, and has a heavy focus on getting boost mode as soon as possible then maintaining it. This game is absolutely built for Sonic and his broken air dashing and trick set - however, the other characters have never been shown off at GDQ and have their own tools to handle especially bosses differently. Offering a four-way character bidwar - I can also include Sonic for a five-way bidwar. Status: Accept

Salamander County Public Television Ok so imagine something like wario-ware where it's a minigame collection, but if it's a bunch of insane ideas for television programming, like using a banana to launch an orange real far (sports) or having a dog with a really long tongue fish out a tennis ball out of packing peanuts (family entertainment). None of these games are really easy, none of them will immediately make a ton of sense, especially without the context of all the dialogue we skip, it will be a thoroughly confusing experience Status: Accept

Puyo Puyo Fever 2 A direct sequel to Puyo Puyo Fever, the game features Amitie, Raffina, and introduces Sig.

Therefore, we want the AI to avoid entering Fever mode, as that can lose time.

Handshakes Handshakes is a recent puzzle game, released in June 2022 and winner of the Lost Relic Game Jam. We control two characters on screen whose goal is to... Yeah, right, you guessed it : find a path to shake their hands. To do so, we'll have to solve various puzzles which mechanics will be revealed through the 30 levels of the game. Puzzles will obviously get more complex as the game goes on.

It's short, it's fun, it's coop, we can shake hands IRL - you'll love it!
