X-SOLDIER
Default Getting Over it with Bennett Foddy

So, I first found out about this from the HatFilms video, and then they did it on stream, and then they just released another video. I simply can't get enough of watching people play this game, and the amazing frustration it causes, so I needed a thread for it.

There're speed runs of it in 3 mins, and even seeing people watch them is satisfying in a different way, once you've witnessed the pure rage that this game can produce, seeing it done in record time is all the more satisfying.

At any rate, if there're more good videos of people trying the game, feel free to poast them, etc. GotY for sure.

There's a lot of competition you know,

also where's the loot boxes.

here's the 3 minute one btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unFkQvq5kYY ; I'm sure they can shave off another 5-10 seconds within a couple days, there were some mistakes there. Interesting fuckery in that furniture bit.

You can tell there's still a lot of mistakes or imperfections in that run, so getting below that should be doable.

The best time looks like it might be possible for a sub-2-min run, which seems insane.

Looks like the sub-2-min run could happen soon. 2:04 is SO smooth.

If the name Bennett Foddy isn't familiar to you, he's the guy who made QWOP, which became a bit of a meme for a while a few years back, and many other flash games. Little Master is my favourite and has been in my bookmarks folder ever since I first played it.

I've watched people play this. I don't think I could do it, I'm already having heart palpitations and the rage over this would probably give me a heart attack or something

I played the shit out of QWOP a few years back when I was bored at work. Eventually even got pretty decent at it too. xD

Cosplay done right:

Here's a video of the highlights of Robbaz playing the game on stream. Quote the fantastic Swedish emotional rollercoaster.

Hot damn, that first space meteor hit though....I remember seeing the 2:04 run and feeling shit knowing it could have been 2:02 or something because of hitting a rock in the space part :/

Still seems like a lot of imperfections that could be improved upon.

Yeah but unless there's some glitches or magic happens, no or not much more than 10 seconds I'd argue.
