General Rules

  • All games must be played with the versions downloaded from their respective speedrun summer pages

  • Any and all forms of cheating are banned. These include, but are not limited to

    • Tool-assisted runs (TAS)

    • Splicing 

    • Using a different version of a game

    • Macros

  • Glitches are not considered cheating, but which glitches, if any, are allowed will be specified by game and by category 

    • Mods reserve the right to ban newly-discovered glitches or create a new category if the glitches are game-breaking or undermine the spirit of the run

  • All runs must have video footage accompanying them 

    • Make sure the footage has at least 10 seconds of padding before the run starts and after it ends. Do not cut the video to the exact start/end of the run

    • You may share videos publicly if you choose, but it is not required

    • Please retain a copy of your video until your time has been verified and displayed on the VGDev website.

  • Most runs will be validated within 48 hours

    • We must do this manually, so please be patient

  • You will be notified if your run is invalidated for any reason 

  • Discussing and streaming runs in the VGDev discord is encouraged


  • All runs are real-time attack (RTA) runs. This means games must be played in one sitting without pausing the timer.

  • Each game and category will specify when timing stops and starts

  • All official timing will be done externally. Some games have built-in timers, but these should be a point of reference only, not considered official times

    • If you would like a good external timer, LiveSplit is recommended.

    • You can submit runs that have only been timed in-game,  but these runs will be re-timed.

  • ​~Timing will be confirmed via the video submission

    • You should time your own run to the best of your ability

    • Runs in the top 3 will always be retimed with the video submission

  • Runs will be timed to the nearest second

    • Runs in the top 3 will be timed to the hundredth of a second to break ties
