Homeworld Deserts of Kharak in Midfall Speedball Speedrunning Marathon


(theoblivinator) #1

I submitted Deserts of Kharak to the Midfall Speedball speedrunning marathon and was accepted. This marathon is run by the same crew that hosted Midwest Speedfest earlier this summer and I’m happy to help them out and participate again. It’ll be great to see all the friends I made at Midwest Speedfest. Hopefully this marathon runs a little smoother too.

Anyways information:

When: November 4th - 5th, starts at 10 AM
Where: Level Up Games, South Saint Paul 207 13th Ave S, South St Paul, MN 55075
It will be streamed on https://www.twitch.tv/midwestspeedfest
What: A marathon from the Midwest Speedfest crew raising funds for Extra Life!
Schedule: Schedule will be here and I will update it when the final version is released: https://horaro.org/midwestspeedcrew/mfsb
Join our Extra Life page here: https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=35454

As of now, I’m running Sunday, November 5th at 2:45pm CST. If you click the schedule link above the webpage will auto-detect your time zone and adjust. I’m already practicing harder than what I did for Midwest Speedfest so I actually have a good run this time and don’t make a fool out of myself. Once again I’ll update this topic if I get any more information. Stay tuned and I hope you watch live!

And update to the original topic. The marathon went very smoothly and was a lot of fun. I got to hang out with all the friends I made at Midwest Speedfest and watch some really cool speedruns too. The marathon also raised over $800 for Extra Life too, which is amazing.

My run was significantly better than the one I did at Midwest Speedfest. My donation incentive to play without socks was met so this isthe first “sockless” speedrun of Deserts of Kharak that I know of. Feel free to watch the replay at this link if you didn’t catch the live version!
