I had mentioned that I had made a couple TAS runs last night on my stream and it seemed like some people wanted to see them, so links are below:

Hamsteak % 3:46:

Any % 6:48:

These are the first TAS runs I've ever made, there is still room for improvement on both. The Any% route I wanted to TAS out to see if all the "new tech" glitch stuff could potentially be WR material, but I don't know that it is. I've changed how some stuff is done here, the biggest thing being using the 2nd kid to operate the water valve while Dave is already by the Fridge. I can't seem to run this fast enough to use Dave to turn on the water, do the usual stuff and then get him into the Lab before the house explodes, but using the 2nd kid to operate the water will buy you a little extra time to get Dave into the Lab before the house explodes if you suck like I do.
Enjoy.

Nice TASing!

I also have my doubts about the new tech being WR-viable. It seems to save a significant amount of time by not requiring a second kid in the dungeon, but that time save is largely negated when you have to go into the dungeon the second time. You'll either need to have a kid in the dungeon anyway, or have Ed take you, which loses time because you have to wait for him to go back upstairs to do Purple Tentacle Skip immediately afterwards.

Still, it's useful tech; it opens up new route options and it's been a real boon for 2-character%. We might even find a way to make it WR-viable in Any% someday.
