Frame Fatales is Games Done Quick’s all-women speedrunning event. Held twice a year, it sees several of the speedrunning community’s top players come together to raise money for Malala Fund. Flame Fatales 2022 has been confirmed for August, and GDQ has released the full schedule of games and runners.

The schedule for Flame Fatales 2022 was released on the Games Done Quick website. Taking place from August 21-27, this event will feature a marathon of nonstop speedruns, all of which will be livestreamed over on the Games Done Quick Twitch channel. Some of the games in this year’s Flame Fatales line-up include Stardew Valley, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and Metroid Dread. There will also be a Hades run in which two players share a single controller.

As always, proceeds from Flame Fatales 2022 will go to Malala Fund, an international non-profit that’s “working for a world where every girl can learn and lead.” Audiences are encouraged to donate during the stream, and there are multiple goals and incentives to be reached, including additional speedruns and special modifiers.

The Frame Fatales FAQ page features additional information for those looking to get involved with the event. Women interested in being a part of a Frame Fatales event are encouraged to reach out via email in order to join the official Discord.

Frame Fatales holds two events every year. A summer event, Flame Fatales, and a winter event, Frost Fatales. Last year’s Frost Fatales event raised over $132,000. Now that the schedule is out, you can start structuring your schedule so that you don’t miss any of your favorite games or runners. This news comes after the conclusion of Summer Games Done Quick 2022, which reeled in more than $3 million for Doctors without Borders.
