Speedrunning has become a competitive form of gaming that only the very best of gamers can hope to become proficient in. Considering that there technically exists a hard cap on just how fast any given game can be beaten, it becomes a game that's just as much about pixel perfect controls as it is about memorization. Metroidvania games are an especially popular genre for speedrunning, many of them feature plenty of areas where sequence breaking can be utilized, and Xeodrifter fits neatly into this playstyle.
Considering the short and simple style of Xeodrifter, it's arguably made for speedrunning. Amazingly enough, the new world speed record was just set at an even seventeen minutes. The run was performed by Jeremy Busby, who held the previous record of 17:03, and you can view it in its entirety below:
What do you think? How long did it take you to beat Xeodrifter? Do you think this can be beaten? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
I've done some of the sequence breaking before, but it's pretty hard (I say done but I didn't actually carry through all the way to the end of the game). Fun little game too. I hope RK makes some more of these.
@Giygas_95 I'd really like to see them do a full fledged sequel. I loved Xeodrifter, but it was over a bit too soon. Granted, it was put together by only a few guys in about six months, but I think it would be worth revisiting.
@MitchVogel Me too. A sequel would be great.
I would love a sequel!
Especially if it has more than one boss.
Great game. Free on eShop now!
If just they added world records for the longest time spent to complete a game. I would win every time!
