It is a shame I did not quite land it this run due to a few mistakes on the final boss fight but I am still extremely happy to have finally achieved the British Record at this time!

How often do runners actually get it?

I don't think anyone bothered to come up with statistics on this, but this definitely fails more often than not! Perhaps runners will practice that specific part a lot more now?

It's good to see poor Mr Sax getting some love since he gets skipped in the normal route. 🤣

Yeah, I'm pretty sure there's more levels where you can't get all the cages that easily.

This is true, you must revisit all four forest levels on PC while on PlayStation you can get all cages in the Swamps of Forgetfulness on the first playthrough.
