Finally, this is out of beta! Now I can see just how bad I am at speedrunning this :P

Also, liking that website.

Is there a guide on what makes the difficulties different?


Not yet. Perhaps that should be put in a page on the website.

For those curious:

Easiest: Enemy/Item layout of Easy, health regenerates one per second up to 100. Hint arrows everywhere. This may change later on, but this seems fine enough.

Easy, Medium, Hard: Enemy/Item layouts changed.

Hardest: Enemy/Item layout of Hard, faster enemies and projectiles, crippled health pickups, and an additional exclusive enemy to ruin your day. In-Game Hints and cheats forced off, even if enabled (though the cheat one can be circumvented via console).

I saw this! Very cool indeed. :D (Pity the comments are all on Reddit though. D:)

I have to commend my team, the rest of Bigbrik Games, for assisting me in the creation of this - without their tireless assistance it wouldn't be half as solid a product as it is.

Just for fun, I did a speedrun of the 1.1.2 release on Skill 2 (because I'm bad :P ) It was quite fun, really, though it definitely could have gone better. A5, A8 and A9 (which I forgot to practice for some reason) in particular were the main mess-ups of the run.

This run was done in glsquare.exe

Times:

A1: 0:47.200 (decent start)
A2: 1:06.171 (messed up in the exit area, didn't get the jump quickly and accidentally triggered the airborne enemies)
A3: 1:31.114 (decent)
A4: 1:33.285 (could have gone better)
A5: 2:13.142 (got blocked and missed the Tritankle Door skip, in general was sloppy)
A6: 1:30.771 (realized afterward that I didn't need to pick up the sphere)
A7: 1:19.742 (pretty decent)
A8: 2:10.114 (went down the toilet after putting in the password to the Square key room)
A9: 2:48.514 (slow boss fight, forgot I was low on Goonades and didn't get the Quad Cannon on A6)
Total: 15:00.053

I'm hoping my calculation for the total isn't completely wrong, heh.

I'm very much looking forward to E2 and E3, they should be good fun just like episode 1 is!
