Oengus (pronounced Angus/ang·guhs) is a site that provides tools for organizing speedrunning marathons.
Speedrunning is the act of playing a video game with the intent of completing it as fast as possible, for the purposes of entertainment and / or competition. You can read more about speedrunning on Wikipedia.
Speedrunning marathons are events where speedrunners gather to showcase their runs to an audience, either online, on site, or both. The most popular events are the Games Done Quick organized twice a year.
This site has been created by Gyoo. Actor in the speedrunning community since 2013, he has contributed in the speedrunning community in many ways: global moderator of speedrun.com for three years, creator of the Speedrun WRs Twitter bot, member of the French Restream team, which provides restreams of internation marathons for a french audience, and founder of Bourg la Run, the french equivalent of Games Done Quick. After gathering all this experience, and assessing that no good public tool existed for organizing marathons, he decided to create one and Oengus is the result.
From January 2021 onwards the site is maintained by duncte123.
Trivia: Oengus is a celtic divinity who is in charge of time and eternity. Talk about a fitting name for speedrunning marathons!
