Chariot Speedrunning Contest Announced With a Huge Price

Chariot Speedrunning Contest

Frima Studios has announced a new contest for speedrunners worldwide that comes with a huge reward. Whether you’re just getting into speedrunning or are a seasoned veteran, this contest may be of some interest to you. Check out the press release below.


Frima Originals, the team who brought Chariot to the world last fall is launching a worldwide Speed Run contest and the stakes are high.

In teams of two players, the contestants will have to complete one specific level, The Prismatic Eye as fast as possible to participate. The performance has to be recorded on Twitch or on Youtube and submitted before March 23rd. The winning team will bring home a grand prize of 1000$.

Seasoned platformer players and speedrunners were always in the team’s mind as the game already has a dedicated Speed Run mode for each level. In order to get the most prestigious achievement in the game, the players must complete every level with a gold medal, but a gold medal will not suffice to win this contest however. It’s hoped by Frima Originals that this contest will peak the interest of online communities of speedrunners and that they will shatter the developer’s own best score.

“ There’s a lot that can be done with the physics in Chariot, especially while playing in co-op. I can’t wait to see what the contestants will come up with to save a few seconds on their runs. We know that most speed run world records are set by breaking the games, I’m curious to see if players find a way to break Chariot. “ says Laurent Mercure, the community manager at Frima.

To celebrate the launch of this contest, the developers are holding a stream tomorrow at 5:00 PM EST on their Twitch channel to give a few tips to aspiring Chariot speedrunners.

In addition, the team will be at PAX East in Boston next week at booth 10057 and will invite experienced speedrunners to try their hands at Chariot.
