Fangame Marathon 2020 submissions are now open!

Submissions this year will be done through, a new website for speedrun event hosting made by Gyoo. You will have to make an account there, but you can easily make one by linking your Discord/Twitter/Twitch account. The link to the event is here:

Our special events are open for signing up as well! This is a collection of small events that we like to host during the marathon with several people, such as the ever-so-popular Avoidance Tournament, and the massive Relay Race. Sign-ups are being done through the #special-events channel this year; just write down which event you'd like to participate in, and we'll add you if there's any space left.
You can see the event sheet here:

And as always, please spread the word! Although we primarily see IWBTG Fangames in this marathon, we absolutely love seeing tons of other communities showcasing their favorite Fangames and ROM Hacks, and getting the word out is the best way to include new people!

Submissions will be closing on May 17th, which we hope is enough time for all of you to prepare and submit the runs that you want to play at this event.

See you all on July 9th for the 2020 edition of Fangame Marathon! Read More...

For: I wanna ascend the 69
This started off being a floor game that seemed to have a lot of effort put into it with the needle getting harder but still staying fun to play. There were even some gimmicks and a trap stage thrown into the early stages to make the needle stand out from the rest of the floor games released around that time which I very much appreciate. There were also a few cutscenes added in for the extra polish and continuity. They weren't the best but were still good enough to watch after you finished a stage.

Unfortunately for me, this didn't last that long. Around floor 25 the game shifted from somewhat cool needle to downright spamming generic jumps like diagonals, weird corner setups which lasted for the entire remaining duration of the game. It just kept on going to no end. This game also like to throw triggers at you which always force you to backtrack through the same needle you've done before with little to no changes to the overall difficulty. It's just extra padding to make the game feel longer.

The gravity flipper stage was the last thing I actually enjoyed before it really went downhill. There were a few iffy jumps here and there and some backtracks were also present near the later part of the stage but it isn't anything major compared what's coming next, which is the red background stage. It really goes full force on the most dull and pathetic jumps you can think of. At this point it's your typical 1 save screen littered with more gates and very chokable jumps, much worse than what's done before. It's just very tiresome and frustrating to grind, and it would have been so much better if the maker atleast placed down more than one save throughout the screen instead of there only being one at the start (which actually happens later on a few times, but unfortunately most of the screens still have 1 save in them). The last floor of this stage is very lazy and just throws a double diamond and a regular diamond at you to make it seem hard for the player.

Floor 61-69 seems to be more of the same except a lot more cancerous than it needs to be. There's a super hard jump at the end of floor 61 which seems super out of place because it's way harder than everything else on the screen. Like I mentioned before most of the screens still seem to stick to one save while adding more would have made the game more pleasant to grind. Floor 69 is an absolute mess: The first save is a mismash of garbage jumps and a forced backtrack where the hardest jump is right at the end which happens to be the first part of the save since you're going back. It's extremely tedious and out of place even if it's the last floor. Then the next save is super easy again for whatever reason. I just don't get it.

In conclusion this game is just a big mess that starts being decent with unique gimmicks and sadly becomes worse the further you get. I'd recommend the first 25 floors or so but stop playing after this. I wanna Descend the 69 also seems a lot better than this game as well, so you should play that instead. This game gets a big no from me.

There are great gimmicks within that make the gameplay feel unique, and there is emotion within that resonates especially in a time when people may feel more alone than ever before. I wouldn't expect any fangame to have any sort of "deep meaning" within it, but this is one that certainly does. The irony of it all is that despite the theme, there is this sense of beauty. To be able to combine both interesting mechanics with the tone that is presented, it is a remarkable accomplishment.

With this said, I highly recommend playing this when you are of a calm mind, the subject matter within is of a serious nature, but not one I believe should be spoiled either. This is, all in all, a work of art.

Side note, this may not be appropriate for streaming depending on your audience, I would recommend giving them a trigger warning notice beforehand.
