PSR Marathon 2017 - Game Submissions Open! (+Date Decided)

Post by Dabomstew » Thu Apr 27, 2017 9:01 pm

First off, we can finally announce the finalized date for this year's PSR Marathon after polling for community feedback. The marathon will be held the weekend of August 4-6. In the end it was a relatively tight decision, but there were a few small factors that made this weekend slightly more advantageous over the other choice.

Secondly, game submissions are opening today! They will be open for a little over two weeks and close on May 14th at 23:59 PDT.

Some quick points on how submissions will work:
  • You can submit your choice of anywhere between 1 and 5 categories from any Pokemon speedgame. All 5 categories can be from separate games, or all from the same game, but you only get 5 total. Filling out the form multiple times to put in more than 5 submissions is not allowed. You CAN make another form entry to fill in your empty slots if you entered fewer than 5 runs total on your previous submission(s), but the limit across all submissions is still 5.
  • As indicated on the form, do not include setup time in your estimates. Estimates should give a rough idea of how long you think a marathon-strats run is going to take in a bad case, since "worst case" for Pokemon runs could be a very very long time.
  • If you think your category could be a potential race, you can indicate as such in the free entry text for "Why should this run be accepted?". The amount of races will probably be minimal due to Pokemon speedrun races just not being very good marathon runs in the committee's opinion, but merely suggesting the idea won't hurt your solo run pitch on its own.
  • A list of submissions is available by clicking here. This will be manually updated as more submissions are received.
