It's interesting to watch the in-level routing for Designer runs: as players are forced to collect all Tings, it's a lot less linear than for the original game, where all you need is break a handful of cages that don't require major deviations from the main path.

Man, those rings! It's almost hypnotizing when all the swinging and hopping goes as intended. :)

Thextera wrote:Actually stoked about this run. Very unexpected.

This run was the first 1:16​ run ever done. The timer at the ends says 1:17​ but it's because I split late.
The last time I broke a minute barrier first was 1:19​. (Glackum got 1:18​ and Kronkie 1:17​).

Shoutouts to all my viewers out there. I would not have been here without you. Streaming for people is so much better than offline runs.

The ending was amazing being able to do 3 hits in a row followed by 4 hits in a row. All of these are frame perfect. Definitely the highlight of this run.

As always, here's the twitch highlight /w chat: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/996952795

And there it is! Losing those ten seconds in Space Mama’s Crater was a bit unfortunate but it wasn’t enough to ruin the run! :up:

Well done! Still a long way to Mr_R, but KOR_131 is a serious competitor.

Too bad that noé lost over a minute to the Skops chase, but otherwise GG to both him and jorisyo.

You basically have to beat the game after collecting all 102 cages, 11 Magicians, 2119 Tings, 65 lives, 112 powers, 82 speed fists and the optional super helicopter in Eraser Plains. Yeah, sounds like a grind. :P

And man, crazy Twilight Gulch from kronkie here! Getting the rings right really made a difference here.

Jokes aside, this was an interesting 1st time experience but theres certainly a lot to take in with this category! I also believe I may have missed the odd thing here and there but I definately put in the effort to search everywhere for stuff and definately got most of it.

[Mod Edit] 6 mistakes as pointed out on discord

Wait now... who counted those? :shock:

It's getting popular anyway, the last two runs are also Max%.

2119 Tings eh? Reminds me of years ago when I kept asking for lists in TTQ (thereby drying up its activity) and you were saying that at that rate I'd end up asking for the position of every Ting in the game. I guess these guys could actually answer a question like that! :hap:
