This Spelunky run through hell is astounding


Also record breaking
Aug 13
 
The new world record for clearing Spelunky, including hell, is 3:44:411. Holy shit. Despite knowing this run by D Tea would end successfully, I still got nervous watching it all unfold. What can I say? Rapidly navigating randomized areas with a teleporter while shopkeepers run wild puts me on edge. Even at a slow pace, there's just so many ways to screw up in this game.

Beating Spelunky in under two minutes


Never underestimate the teleporter
Jul 14
 
One minute and fifty five seconds -- that's the new world-record any% time for Spelunky set by Pibonacci. It hurts my brain thinking about how many runs must have happened before the right conditions presented themselves for this to unfold. To think, I was happy to clear Olmec in under eight minutes for the "Speedlunky" achievement.

It took seven hours, but Spelunky has a new world record


'Oh man, I'm going to feel really bad when I throw this run'
Feb 21
