  • TETR.IO to be Featured at Major Speedrunning Event

The stacker game TETR.IO is set to be on stream during ESA Winter 2023, a week-long speedrunning convention hosted in Malmö, Sweden. Organised by ESA, the European Speedrunning Association, the event features fundraising for Azlzhiemerfonden, a Swedish charity funding treatment and research for dementia.

Following the successes of the North American Tetris LANs, such as those hosted by Team TSD and Puzzle Kingdom, mat1jaczyyy wanted to hold a similar event in Europe. Over time the idea evolved, and ultimately an application to ESA Winter 2023 was submitted after recruiting world-class players willing to take part in the showcase.

Starting at 22:11 on February 21st (UTC+1) the TETR.IO portion of the stream is scheduled to run for more than an hour. Present will be mat1jaczyyy on commentary, and players Kelvin, yours truly, mystery and z2sam playing 40L, Blitz and versus respectively. You can tune into the stream here:
