This Thursday, September 12, we are starting the first
What If... event.
Starting at 8am GMT, the SpeedHookers! event will modify
SpeedRunners into a grappling hook massacre.
All items will become grappling hooks for 24 hours. Based on
feedback from PAX's minibooth, players love grapple-hook-overtaking
others. So what happens if everyone constantly overtakes each
other? Find out this Thursday.
We wanted to have some sort of crazy event go on every week, and
decided doing "What If..." scenarios.
What if everyone has only grappling hooks (SpeedHookers)? What
if the floor is ice (IceRunners)? What if it starts to rain
The idea is to have something different every week. To make the
game different for a day. Fortunately being in Early Access, we can
do exactly that - along with major updates to the game.

other. Welcome to SpeedRunners.
SpeedRunners is a 4 player competitive platformer with grappling

around, fire rockets, grapple onto people to knock them off
