The best thing we could do with those Tings might be to use them as a prize pot for future speedrunning competitions :hehe:

People seemed to only care about merch though, I guess Tings are only of interest for regulars of this place.

Hmm, there's a bit of a Catch-22 there all right, isn't there?

Maybe we should hire a panel of economists to sort our dilemma!

51 Cages? Is that a new thing? 😳

I'm not sure what Darkness is either. 😳😳

Looks like Darkness is where the firefly from Eat at Joe's is hacked into every level of the game to increase the challenge!

Yeah, and though the rules don't say anything about it, cheats are apparently allowed?

As for 51 cages, it's another hacked version of the game that allows you to reach Candy Château with only half of the usual 102 cages.

Thanks, there's a lot of games that require a certain amount of collectibles but not all of them to complete and it makes the pathfinding interesting for speedruns, I understand the idea here.
