Default Re: Awesome Games Done Quick will be speedrunning The Talos Principle!

Alright, I watched the rest of it, quite the amazing feat! With speedruns of any kind, it just blows my mind all this manipulations and tricks people discover in order to shave a couple seconds off their time. Amazing!

What makes it even more impressive is that The Talos Principle has a relatively lower player base than, say, Portal. And yet some of these crazy manipulations are discovered. Things such as pushing the buttons on the elevator to trick the checkpoint system. What I found most impressive was the "slide jump" or whatever he called it used to smuggle items to the other side of a purple barrier using a precise sequence of button commands. Looked like voodoo magic
Requiescat en Pace.
