You can guess the team assignments yourself :)
Prepare for the ultimate showdown between The Falcon and SpeedRunner.
What is King of Speed?
King of Speed is an in-game tournament between the characters of SpeedRunners. The first one was held in December 2013 and featured an ARG, the culmination of which revealed Game Modifiers.
In the first King of Speed, we counted wins of individual characters for a month, and in the end Cosmo was crowned as King Cosmo and wore a crown for a month in-game.
This time The Falcon faces off with SpeedRunner in an ultimate showdown of Speed and Running. And they are backed up by teams of Youtubers to help!
Do I need to buy the DLC to participate?
No, you can support your team by playing as either The Falcon or SpeedRunner
But SpeedRunner has 4 versions of the skin, but Falcon has only 1?
We are adding 3 more skins to the Falcon just for this event. Spoilers? I probably shouldn't be revealing this.
Which charity are you donating money to?
This is something we're figuring out with the help of experienced parties like Humble Bundle. If you have suggestions - let us know.
What's the DLC price?
We are aiming for $2.99 per pack, so less than $1 per character
Why cancer research?
Personal statement from Alex Nichiporchik (CEO @tinyBuild):
Screw cancer. It took the life of countless people in my family, and almost took mine. I believe with the popularity of SpeedRunners we can make a difference to advance its research.
