Hello! Runs aren't being accepted yet but may be submitted for later review. Let us know what categories you wanna see!

An update for this board will happen shortly

A "single day" would be quite nice! An individual day run for each of the settings (spiders, bugs, etc) could be fun.

Hello! >^_^/ If this game was getting more attention I might consider that. It's so quiet that I forgot about it so 😛

Ahh, I completely forgot about speedrunning for the game. I've been replaying it a few times, so I'll throw in a single-day run or two when I got time today.

I like the idea of the single days, especially once you hit the later days when certain day combinations can help reduce time (i.e. towels from day1 gas helping with temp on day 2).

I was previously thinking about suggesting a "perfect" category (days 1-3 end with +5kg carry bonus, Cate + another companion survive to the end), but since there's very little activity it might not be a good idea to add it until some basic any% runs are completed.

It will be nice having someone like you around. You seem quite passionate about the series. Great job on that first run.

Cool to see a run. Excited for full game runs.

Let me know if I can help at all... I oversaw QA for the game. Can't promise we won't patch any bugs/skips y'all find, though.

After getting the True Ending, you unlock the ability to select which scenario you want for each day. That should eliminate the randomness of which ones you'll get. Haven't run any tests, but I'm positive one over the others will be fastest each day (except Day 4 should be the same either way).

Tasselfoot PogChamp Where do all the fans of scriptweilder hide? 😛 I'd like a place to chat with the community.

We have an Armor Games Studios discord, which is where we ran betas for DE4. It's a really small discord, but it's the only place I have access to for DE4 fan community. It's not active. There is no official discord for Scriptwelder or DE4.

Also, strategy wise, I'd expect a combo of Mostly Walking + The Lone Wolf to be the fastest... no time wasted getting the car or building the bridge + ignoring Cody and Barry. IIRC, I did a test run where I earned both of those achievements on the same playthrough, so it is possible.

And you can win each day a bit less than perfect which will save time. I think especially on day 4, where you could ignore either the bus or the lab item, and you'll still win the day, and Cate will die (part of the Lone Wolf achievement). This'll also make the Moon faster.

Maybe it would be useful to set up a discord for speedrunning this game. It doesn't have to be much, but it would be easier to talk about stuff

 
  chryoyo

That could be done easily but it would die off very quickly. Seeing as you are probably gonna be the only one. You could easily message me on discord as well.

I agree with chry. We only have a few people on board right now, so the forums here should be ok.
