The all-woman speedrunning event Frost Fatales wrapped up this weekend with more than $132,000 raised for the Malala Fund, a non-profit founded in 2013 by Pakistani activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai that works to support safe, quality education for girls around the world.
Frost Fatales 2022 kicked off on February 27 with—after the pre-show, of course—a 3:46:25 run of Spyro: Year of the Dragon, and proceeded until March 6, when it finished big by blowing through Mass Effect in just over an hour and a half.

For a more compact experience, here’s Dusk in 30 minutes.
Hollow Knight in 3:10:06? Sure.

And finally, Final Fantasy 4 Pixel Remaster, in a little over three hours.
Frost Fatales and its summertime variant Flame Fatales—both events held by Games Done Quick’s all-women speedrunning community Frame Fatales—aren’t as big as GDQ’s full-scale annual extravaganzas, but there’s a lot more to see than just those up above: The full schedule is available at gamesdonequick.com, or if you prefer you can just poke around the GDQ YouTube channel to see what’s interesting.
Frames Fatales will return with the Flames Fatales event in August 2022. A date for GDQ’s big Summer Games Done Quick showcase hasn’t been announced yet, but will be revealed soon.
