  1. 12 Hour Challenge #9
  2. August 2-4, 2019
  4. Hello, friends! I'm Golden, and it's time for the biannual speedrunning community shake up.
  6. I hope you're not doing anything next weekend (August 2-4), because the 12 Hour Challenge is back. For anyone who is new here, the whole premise is simple. I challenge you to pick a game you want to learn to speedrun. Allot twelve hours of your weekend to learning this game and completing your first speedrun of it. It's that simple! Ultimately, how you use your time is up to you. Some people like to just race the game of their choosing for the whole twelve hours and see how much they improve. Others prefer to intensely practice each element of the run right up until the very end of their time, hoping for a very productive result. You can research your game, using YouTube and Twitch videos for guidance, or you can go in blind and see what you produce on your own. It's all up to you.
  8. What's so great about this challenge? It continues to be a community-wide event. Runners who are brand new to the hobby take part, and runners you've been watching since the days participate, too. It's a fresh reset for everyone in the community, as your favorite runners take on totally different and unexpected games. Now that you've been challenged, be sure to share the challenge with your friends, too! Let's make this one the biggest and best yet! You can help spread the word for the 12 Hour Challenge by retweeting the announcement tweet, and by using #12HourChallenge on social media.

  11. Theme:
  12. --------
  13. The theme for challenge #9 is: "As Seen On TV"
  15. Learn a game based on a television series.
  17. Note: The theme is an OPTIONAL piece of the challenge, designed to keep things interesting for returning participants. You are NOT required to use this theme. You are encouraged to consider it. If there's a game you are dying to learn and it doesn't fit the theme, don't let it stop you from learning it.

  20. The "12 Hour Challenge" Tag
  21. --------
  22. Twitch has generously added a "12 Hour Challenge" tag that anyone can use for their stream. On the day of your challenge, be sure to set your stream tags to include BOTH "12 Hour Challenge" and "Speedrun". This combination should be unique enough that we filter the streamers who are just blindly tagging their stream as 12 Hour Challenge without reading what it actually is for!
  24. If everyone does this, then to view all of the 12 Hour Challenge streams during the weekend, simply go here:

  29. The speedrunning community is extremely welcoming and willing to help you learn! To facilitate this, the 12 Hour Challenge itself has an official Discord that participants can join:
  31. Join the Discord for tons of information about specific game communities, or to ask any other challenge questions you might have. It's a very supportive and engaging group of people, who are just as excited about the challenge as you are. There's a master list of game-specific Discords, a place to post your first run splits, and channels for asking questions and brainstorming what to run. We also have voice channels on the Discord that you are free to use during the 12 Hour Challenge.
