Awesome Games Done Quick – BattleBlock Theater

The amount of time spent perfecting a speedrun can be off the charts since speedrunners will learn the ins and outs of a game to find the fastest ways to the end. We certainly respect all the hours any player puts into the games we’ve made. We’ve seen numbers as high as 300 in hours spent playing BattleBlock Theater Steam!
Next week, two players are putting themselves up to the challenge of finishing BattleBlock Theater Steam within 2 hours and 45 minutes while playing cooperative story mode. PJDicesare & MechaRichter are playing in the 2015 Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) event on January 5th, 5PM PST (8PM EST). AGDQ 2015 is a live speedrunning event that will benefit the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
During the BattleBlock Theater segment, our co-founder & art director, Dan Paladin, and our game narrator, Will Stamper, will be joining the event via Skype. During the live stream of the event, Dan and Will are going to give dev commentary along with the host of the event and two other speedrun commentators. You’ll be able to ask us questions while watching PJDicesare & MechaRichter go as fast as they can through the treacherous Theater stages.
Come join in on the fun! Do what we’re doing and watch from home or your office! You can watch on the Games Done Quick Twitch page or watch it on their website on the day of.
Finally, since this is a charity event, we hope that you’ll consider donating to the Prevent Cancer Foundation through the Games Done Quick website. They will be posting information on how to donate in the next few days.
Until then, let’s go back and clock in some more hours in the game! How fast could you beat the game in one sitting?

  1. I can’t wait for this run! Getting to talk with Dan and Will is going to be an absolute honor, and I can’t wait to hear their reactions to some of our “solutions”. What isn’t mentioned in this is that Mecha Richter and I will be running the 100% category, which involves getting an A++ rating on every single stage, including secret stages. We will be collecting every gem and yarn in the game, and getting the time bonus, in under 2:45. Should be a fun time! Thanks for the post, Behemoth! <3

  2. Echoing what PJ said, I’m really excited to do this run with PJ, and having the chance to talk to Dan Paladin and Will Stamper is awesome! Our routing has changed a lot since we started to run the game, and I think everyone will be entertained with the strats we came up with.

    Thank you Behemoth for this opportunity and thanks for the awesome game!
