Following up on the unbelievable success that was the first JRTA, JRTA 2 was the quintessential sequel. There were some noticeable differences this time around:
- The Sluip Show was no more 🙁
- The stream backgrounds were a gradient I threw together in GIMP.
- People started slacking on attendance to their runs… and that meant emergency Zooming Secretary shenanigans featuring Puchie D and me.
Despite these faults, JRTA 2 succeeded! We raised $5,508.20 to help bring Becored and Ohon from Japan to participate in Awesome Games Done Quick 2016. There were plenty of positives, too:
- Scramble pre-show on IRC
- 0xwas wearing maid costumes for his runs
- The closest Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past race of all time
- The fan-favorite race of Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts with Dice and Malcome
- …and so much more
Check out all of the runs in this playlist of JRTA2!
And here are the Japanese participants’ runs, sorted by runner, performed at AGDQ 2016.
