There comes a time in life where a speedrun so epic, so mind-blowing, so perfect in every way comes around. It hooks everyone, causing speedrunners across the globe to abandon their current speed projects, learn the route, practice the tech, race in tournaments, and create a frenzy the likes of which the speedrunning world hasn’t seen since Dragster.

A game so monumental that a SummoningSalt video is imminent. Expect the greats of Twitch, YouTube, SDA, and Niko to run it. It will be the hottest new eSport and Guinness World Records will pay to get the record in the new book.

A speedrun so epic it will literally cure cancer, as it’s the closing game at the next Games Done Quick marathon!

Oh, this game isn’t that. In Smurf Rescue, you walk and jump.

At least it’s a pleasant, happy little game!
