GDQ’s Fast Femmes return

[Update: Frost Fatales is now live! Check out all the action right here on Twitch.]

Are you ready for another week of wild speedruns, all in the name of a worthwhile cause? Well, if so (and I always am), this week sees the return of Frost Fatales, the all-women speedrun event hosted by the Games Done Quick Frame Fatales community. The action kicks off Sunday, February 27, and will run until March 6.

Much like last year’s event, and summer’s epic Flame Fatales gathering, Frost Fatales 2022 will take place in an online capacity, as a legion of dedicated and expert gaming gals ply their trade against a wide variety of titles, old and new. A brief look at the schedule promises exciting times with classic games from The Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, and DuckTales franchises, with more modern fare coming in the form of Hades, NieR: Automata, WarioWare: Get it Together, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Once again, viewers will be able to send in words of encouragement and applause, along with donations to Frost Fatales’ chosen charity, The Malala Fund. Co-founded by the youngest Nobel prize winner in history, Malala Yousafzai, The Malala Fund is a non-profit organization that supports and provides access to secondary education for women and girls all over the world, regardless of their status, background, or local economy. Flame Fatales 2021 raised an awesome $127,000 last summer, and will no doubt be looking to smash that record achievement.

It’s going to be a great event, and you can check out all of the action yourself over on the official Games Done Quick Twitch channel. Good luck to the crew and all of the Frost Fatale runners and streamers!
