Luigi's Mansion Luigi's Mansion is an intricate and very movement based speedrun, and routing and optimizations are always changing. Any% is the most skill based category, requiring the player to skew Luigi's angle to get over obstacles and performing frame perfect inputs. 100% has differing money routes, which would make a race perfect as it shows off these differing routes. 2p1c (With Vark) One side controls Luigi's movement while the other controls Luigi's vacuum, which makes for a great co-op speedrun.

Earthworm Jim 2 One of the most randomly thought out games ever to be assembled for a 16-bit system. This game has never been showcased at a GDQ before even though it has been around as a speedgame for years. It is a very fun game to play casually and a blast to play fast! The speedrun includes huge level skips, input glitches including a double jump mechanic, wall and pipe clipping..the list goes on! And let's not forget about cows! Grooovy! Status: Decline

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight Momodora: RUtM is a beautifully crafted action-platformer that is visually appealing, has an incredible soundtrack and has very familiar mechanics to those who've played a metroidvania before.

The run features flashy boss kills, and very fast and precise movement, especially on the Insane difficulty where any hit from an enemy will result in a death for most of the run.

The category explores much more of the game, requiring the player to kill all bosses and collect all hidden collectibles.

Kirby Super Star Collecting everything in all of the sub-games that make up KSS forces a huge variety of movement and other techniques, which keeps this run fresh. Jet, wing, and wheel are all vastly different movement options that get prominent use. The culmination of the run is The Arena, which is a 7 minute mash fest of the d-pad vs. all of the bosses that looks beyond goofy on a hand cam. Kirby is cute. Status: Decline

The Messenger The new hit indie title. Slash your way through multiple foes while dealing with a series of serious platforming sections. It switches between old school 8-bit and 16-bit.
About the speedrun since the game is fairly new a lot of strats are being found, but somehow it is pretty clear that unless a big glitch will be found the time cannot get below two hours.
I think this game should totally be at AGDQ because it's a really nice looking game, good music and also pretty nice graphics.

This run requires a lot of on the fly routing, and although somethings are randomized, there's always a way to deal with the hand you're dealt. A handful of skips help to trim the fat and keep the action flowing.

Avoid the Noid NOTE: There is only one category for this game (awful%). The categories listed are to show time variance.

Remember when Domino's had the 30 minutes or less policy? Well you get to prove yourself navigating 30 floors of Noids, bazookas, missiles, and water balloons. All so you can deliver pizza to the CEO of Doom Industries.

Did I mention the game has an innovative acceleration/deceleration control scheme never before (and never after) seen in any other game?

ActRaiser 2 AR2 has been my primary speedgame for 7 of the last 9 years. Known for its cruel difficulty and complex control scheme, AR2 is a very unpopular video game with remarkably deep speed tech. "Difficulty 202" is a superhard mode accessed by password, in which nearly every enemy is OHKO and has extreme amounts of health. D202 is a much more tense and engaging run than hard mode, with an ironically safe final stage. AR2 last appeared in AGDQ2014, and my consistency is immeasurably higher now. Status: Decline

The Magic of Scheherazade The submission is my PB/WR video from May. It uses a somewhat risky route, but the route can be made more secure by using ~15 extra seconds to pick up 50 rupias in Ch. 3 (which I skipped in this run) and using them to buy more breads in Ch. 4.

The intent is for this to be a race between me, Synthpopisback, and Sathdresh. Synth and I had a close race as part of TheRPGchick-a-thon earlier this year. The game itself is an RPG/adventure hybrid which is fairly obscure but certainly high quality.

Final Fantasy Adventure Final Fantasy Adventure is, famously, not a Final Fantasy game, but the prequel to Secret of Mana, and basically a Zelda clone. It is also the most glitched game I run. Three completely different visually appealing technical glitches allow the runner to go out of bounds and warp to much later parts of the game. Underleveled and out of sequence, this run is fascinating and nothing like the casual experience. A must see. Status: Decline

What could paws-sibly go wrong? 100% incorporates many similar tricks to grab the rockets hidden in each level, but gives viewers a better sense of what the game contains, rather than making a dash straight for the exit.

From there, you try and figure out different routes and paths to beat the game with the Items you are able to find. It adds a good challenge of routing and over all rewards good knowledge of the game. These runs can be long but it would be a great game for racing other players or teams. Status: Decline

I’ve made a lot of progress with this category, including a bunch of new sequence breaks, improved routing, boss quick kills, and death warps that have allowed me to cut 19 seconds off the previous record holder’s PB.

So you might ask yourself why bother, well its because most casual viewers as well as people that want to start learning to speedrun don't realize how easy it is to get started with this very amusing run. Surprisingly its actually has the most runs on the major glitches leaderboards, and 2nd overall, as far as most times on the LttP leaderboards.

In Homecoming Any% New Game, we start off with some efficient movement and combat and build to the madness to come.
Once a gun is obtained, any and every wall and object can be clipped into and slid through, creating a wonderfully amazing run of precise movement, combat, wall clipping, falling through solid floors and sequence breaks.

Valkyria Chronicles Valkyria Chronicles is a turn based/third person shooter RPG that rewards efficient use of limit actions per turn to achieve the highest ranking. We use the highest rankings to get all the EXP and money need to complete the route without grinding. This involves either completing a mission in one turn with a single unit or positioning our units to minimize the time the enemy phases take if we need a second turn, often avoiding the enemy phase entirely.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a well known film back in the 80's but it was also a game released on the NES. Many of us rented the game as a child but never beat it. I do not believe that this title has been showcased at a GDQ as of yet, either way the game has had much improvement. After my discovery of RNG manipulation I was able to drive the record down to 4m 13s. I have included a video of a random run because it often takes up to 20m just to get that RNG. The run is fun and will go well. Status: Decline

Metal Gear: Ghost Babel A lesser known game in the Metal Gear series. The draw of this speedrun is the low emphasis on stealth and tight timing; it takes many intentional alerts to save time. Along with this it has really good pacing as the slower parts of the game are skipped via glitches.

There is a lot to talk about in this game regarding its game design and release, especially how the sequence breaks were handled by the devs (hidden dialogue and failsafes).

Cave Story+ Cave Story+ is a 2D metroidvania-esque platformer with a multitude of different weapons and upgrades for the player to find throughout its world. The game is very precise and timings can be very tight when talking about its physics engine. The best ending of the game involves solving many puzzles for the story and eventually finding the true evil lurking behind the scenes of the plot. The Switch version features cutscene skipping and a number of other changes making the run a little bit faster. Status: Decline

Mickey's Dangerous Chase Since its appearance at AGDQ 2017, I have lowered my PB by nearly a minute in this charming and surprisingly challenging GB-platformer.

This game has 5 stages, in which there are several levels each. Each brings new challenges, with damage boosts and end-zone abuse making this run as fast & as hot as can be. Goofy (mysteriously) awaits Mickey and Minnie at the end of each level, as though he has an unthinkable power which he has yet to disclose to either of our possible protagonists...

True Crime: New York City A game marred by the mid-2000's craze of GTA clones. True Crime: New York City's buggy nature shines through, as the first OOB (of many) is barely 10 seconds into the run.

Such a buggy and oddball experience actually makes for a fairly compelling speedgame; TC: NYC is blessed and cursed by its flaws.

SHIVERS With Shivers being released on GOG Galaxy, I am finally able to play this game legitimately and submit a run of it to GDQ. I jokingly call this "Randomizer: The Game" but Shivers is hard to classify; I think adventure/horror would best describe it as you need to explore an abandoned museum, solve seemingly random puzzles in true horror game fashion, and capture 10 ghosts (called ixupi) in order to escape. Speedruns come down to routing on the fly, ability to solve puzzles, and good movement. Status: Decline

This highly revolves around adapting to the enormous amounts of RNG (enemy spawns, weapons, accuracy of enemies, etc.). Safety strats have been developed to make the run marathon safe. The glitches in this include spawn manipulations, ammo glitches, and everyone's favorite from quake games, strafe jumping. Coop also introduces 2 exclusive missions not seen in a solo run.

Silent Hill 3 Survival horror games on easy modo are cute and all but the Silent Hill community has never gotten a chance to show off its true mettle in the fashion given to Resident Evil and other games. Hard Mode is absolutely worth the trivial time increase. Heather (and I) got this locked down. I've been running this game for about 5 years now and have had WR for a while.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition GoWUE is a remastered version of Gears of War last seen SGDQ 2012. It's a fast paced third person shooter that features a unique cover based movement system.
There have been significant route changes because of the addition of several new campaign chapters and some OOB skips were patched in this version, but others were created .
The game is consistent timing wise and the biggest risk sections have easy back up saves so I'm accounting for that. The game also has mature language filter options.

Owlboy Owlboy is a 2D adventure game with a significant amount of ways to glitch the game and get out of bounds, this allows us to do one of the best categories Owlboy has to offer!
In Sorta-Kinda Reverse Boss Order, we perform multiple major sequence breaks, do a variety of skips involving several unique ways to get OoB, and we get to see some category exclusive areas and glitches. All of this and more while fighting every boss in reverse order. Well... sorta... kinda reverse order.

Croc 2 Croc 2 is by all means rather underwhelming as a game, but fast and satisfying movement is found throughout the speedrun. There are many tight jumps and ledges that Croc must navigate, all at 1 pixel per frame. Diagonal movement's even faster, about 1.4 pixels a frame. Almost every room has a way to die, so it makes an exciting speedrun, and the characters and music keep it lighthearted. Status: Decline

Dark Souls III Dark Souls III any% is the game beaten in the fastest and most broken form. The run features glitches taking you far out of bounds and bosses that hit really hard.

With the out of bounds a lot of otherwise mandatory areas can be skipped. Those areas that remain mandatory are harsh due to the lack of levels and make for some intense sequences.

Should there be a want for more fights there could be the incentive to not glitch the final boss, Soul of Cinder, a very tough enemy.

RIVE RIVE is a novel take on twin-stick shooters, featuring platforming and exploration. The gameplay is exciting, fast-paced, and built upon clever use of enemies and hazards. Numerous skips and tricks bypass otherwise lengthy sequences. There's something for every viewer, as the game design and banter are filled with references to legendary games and gamer culture.

Final Fantasy XV Having run this game in RPGLimitBreak as well as many other online marathons; this game is reaching the peak of it's popularity. It's Final Fantasy, face paced, tech heavy and incredibly execution based, with incredibly fast fights. The modern ARPG at it's finest with a great story.
Having poured over an entire year into this run, the commentary will be top notch. This run also comes with a BARRAGE of donation incentives sure to impress the audience. Yes, the cosplay will be included too.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex A mix between a fast paced third person shooter and a platformer, this game based off the popular anime series is a relative gem. With no one really working on it for almost 9 years. It is extremely faced paced, has AI abuse, out of bounds glitches, and a demanding difficulty curve for nailing all of the platforming sections; this game might be one of the more fun speedgames based off an anime.

THOTH THOTH is a minimalist 2d shooter game. Originally designed for twin joysticks, using mouse and keyboard increases both the speed and difficulty of the speedrun.

The "Standard" 64 levels encompass the main game; every four levels introduces a new mechanic and is also a checkpoint. Solo and Coop are self-explanatory categories, while Solo-Coop is the game played in coop mode but with only one player active. If coop gets in I will be running with Zet237.

Rain World Rain World is a survival platformer not previously seen on any marathon mostly due to its consistency issues. Due to a development in the any% category the run has become all but predetermined as many of the risks that would normally end a run are now able to be dealt with in some form, while still retaining speed.

Given the non-traditional forms of movement, when playing as Slugcat, and the strangeness of the ending, the run has the potential to be very entertaining.

Pac-Man: Adventures in Time Adventures in Time looks like a standard Pac-Man game on the surface. However, many strategies, such as jumping over slopes and using a death abuse, make this a great speedrun.
Each maze has an ideal route, but enemy movement can be somewhat random. This is a great way to showcase how skillfully on-the-fly rerouting can be performed.
Gameplay is easy to follow, and most levels have a twist or gimmick that keeps the run from getting stale.
Would like to race with Pinballwiz45b if possible.

Mega Man X5 X5 is the first of the "weird" MMX games to expand and augment the classic MMX formula with loads of new mechanics. Combining the usual dash and shoot with an upgradable parts mechanic, a character/armor select before every stage, and a much less linear stage select, this game is truly an adventure in routing and running. Since its last showing, the game has undergone a new route, and a fairly recent, consistent manipulation for the biggest reset point in the run (see ~10:30 in the video). Status: Decline

Neutopia is a hidden gem that draws many comparisons to The Legend of Zelda, but has some nice features that make it an enjoyable (i.e. phenomenal soundtrack) but challenging (i.e. complex boss strategies) adventure game.

Castlevania: The Adventure Konami's first CV on the Gameboy, the game on it's surface looks janky and glitchy but the difficulty in optimizing a run is rather high, as hits cause you to lose whip power, and there are precise movements and jumps to be made to avoid being hit while killing bosses as fast as possible. May be a good fit in a Castlevania block or a Bad Games block. Status: Decline

Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues Welcome to Jurassic Park! We've clocked the speedrun at about 25 minutes. So, hold onto your butts!

Jurassic Park Pt 2: The Chaos Continues is a great run & gun/platformer for the GameBoy. The speedrun will consist of highly optimized movement, damage boosting, precise shot placement and tons of movie quoting & memes. There's even a hilarious glitch that makes you invulnerable for most of the run! No Jurassic Park games have been run before at GDQ, and this game would be a great fit at AGDQ`19.

Touhou 06: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil Hard Mode or Extra Exhibition Run. Various shmup skills including micro/macrododging, streaming, bomb management and overall precision are on display. Ideal for a possible shmup block, but I feel this one is worth taking a chance on either way due to brand recognition and the fact that a shmup has never been shown on a GDQ before. I can consistently 1cc this difficulty now (this is an older recording before subsequent clears offstream). I hope you will consider giving mainline Touhou a chance. Status: Decline

Donkey Kong Country Trilogy This would be a run (or a race) of all 3 DKC SNES games back to back to back. All 3 games this year have undergone multiple optimizations, including huge time saves such as Elevator Antics SJR for DKC1 (13 seconds), Castle Crush Wrong Warp for DKC2 (62 seconds), and Team Throw Jumping / D-Boosting KAOS for DKC3 (12 seconds). This would be especially exciting as a race since it has frame perfect tricks and difficult wrong warps / platforming that could create many lead changes. Status: Decline

Wii Sports Wii Sports is one of the best selling games of all time and easily one of the most recognizable. It is such a nostalgia trip for lots of people, but as far as speedrunning goes, it is quite unheard of. This would be a really nice surprise in the games list and would fit perfectly in a silly games block. All Sports is a very short category that consists of completing each of the 5 sports with minimum requirements. This run has loads of RNG, but can be pretty hype to see how things play out.

Yo! Noid Yo! Noid is an NES game based on the anti-mascot The Noid from the Domino's Pizza franchise. The game is mainly a platformer but does mix it up a bit with 2 different ways to end a level. Many people remember this game as a kid and it being tough, but I can show them that it just takes a bit of knowledge to be able to complete it. Overall, the game has some fun techniques that have been discovered throughout the years that have helped bring the WR from a 22:40, to 19:58. Status: Decline

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix HD Terra is both the hardest character in BBS and the only one who's never been showcased at a GDQ. His limited move set in relation to the other characters and increased difficulty in the boss fights lead to a lot of creative ways to deal with aggressive bosses and mobs while not dying in the process. The added tech in combat needed delves a lot deeper into the mechanics of the game than the runs showcased before it. Also has potential of a secret boss fight incentive with No Heart.

After it was last shown at ESA17, it was voted top game people wanted to run for the monthly Obscure Speedruns Club challenges (Jan18). Since then, quite a few strats have been found by new runners.
