Speed Bump is a weekly show that hosts a competitive speedrunning event with the goal of setting new world records in unoptimized games (sometimes, we host a race instead of a WR contest).
The show is hosted on twitch.tv/Smight every Sunday night at approximately 9:30 Eastern (immediately following the Arcade Pit show).
Approximately every month, we change to a new speed game. Each following week, we will discuss new runs and progress! On weeks 2 and 4, we host live races (open participation, everyone is welcome!)
About the event:
- Every month, a new game is announced for a speedrun challenge.
- Four weeks time will be given for the community to achieve the best run possible. (duration may vary; use the website clock)
- When time is up, the #1 runner will win a cash prize and may be invited on the show while we watch the run!
We choose games we feel are “un-optimized,” meaning we feel the game’s speedruns can be largely improved upon, if a run even exists at all.
Ideally, the runs will be posted on speedrun.com. You can also send us your run through discord / twitter, or comments on the front page.
If you are interested in discussing the event with our community, join Smight’s discord and look for the #SpeedBump room! It is heavily recommended to join just for the information you will find as we study the game, but it is not mandatory.
