Yep another one. Another Spelunky world record bites the dust
But technically this is the big daddy.
A week ago we had a new 'Hell' speed run world record. Then 'Spelunky God' broke the more general speed run world record — the any% record.
Now Spelunky God has gone and set a brand new record, beating his old record by a significant six seconds. That's a big chunk of time when you're dealing with a speed runs.
The new world record time is 1:41.499.
As Patrick Klepek mentioned when reporting Spelunky God's initial record breaking run, he made a couple of mistakes, meaning that it was always pretty possible that the record would be re-broken fairly quickly.
The key here seems to be the use of the teleporter, which looks like a special type of insanity that my puny mortal brain cannot comprehend. Something we have to remember: Spelunky is hard. It's just hard to play in general, let alone speed run.
This is mesmerising to watch.
