Following the recent success of Summer Games Done Quick, it’s time for the Aussies to stake their claim in
With the support of accessory maker HyperX, speedrunners will take on a number of classic and modern
- Kingdom Hearts 1.5 will be run in around 3 hours (the game is typically a 30+ hour adventure)
- Prey will be run in around 20 minutes (the game is typically a 20+ hour adventure)
- Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be run in around 25 minutes (this game can be between 40-100 hours)

In addition to these games, you can also expect games like Blinx: The Time Sweeper, Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie, Bomberman 64, Hollow Knight, Morrowind, and Diddy Kong Racing to put in an appearance.
