WHAT GAMES ARE WE RUNNING?
When deciding whether a suggested game will fit into the final schedule, we will consider the following: length, entertainment value and commentary quality. We will be looking at these three qualities over others such as game popularity.
ESA – THIS IS US
ESA events are festivals of speedrunning. The core of the festival is the video game marathon – a week long, 24-hour telethons streamed on Twitch.tv celebrating the art of speedrunning. During the stream viewers at home are invited to donate to a charitable cause and can interact with the event by naming characters, choosing cosmetic items and influencing game difficulty.
