New Super Ninja Slash World Record



Jesse Richmond, also known as YourWifeAndKids has smashed the world record time of Super Ninja Slash. My personal best was 00:50.68, and now the fastest time is now over 2 seconds better!

Seeing any speed runs of my games gives me the warmest and fuzziest feelings. Make sure to follow Jesse on twitch for more!

Super Ninja Slash Speedrun


Just a week or so after I launched Super Ninja Slash my best time was around 1:25. I thought that was possibly the best time I could get, and maybe under 1:20 was possible. Then someone posted a time of 1:07 and my mind was blown, so I went back to try to beat that time. After playing for a couple of days, I finally broke through the 1 minute barrier.

Oh, and that's not my best time anymore.

I don't want to submit my own times to the leaderboards, but there's the time to beat if you want to be faster than me!

I think Super Ninja Slash is the first game I've played longer than I developed it. (The game actually only was in development for 4 days!)

Now for something completely different!



Sometime over the past month I was inspired to do a speed run of a game but I couldn't figure out exactly what game I wanted to do. After some soul searching I landed on Lyle in Cube Sector. Lyle is a game released in 2006 and was one of the first "indie" games to really blow my mind. It was a complete metroidvania, and it was made in Multimedia Fusion which I didn't think was possible. Lyle would later go on to inspire me enough to actually finish my next game, which turned out to be Bonesaw: The Game.

If you've never played Lyle you should totally check it out. The game is a bit brutal at first. Everything hurts you, enemies are complete dicks, and you don't have a lot of health to play around with, but it's definitely worth sticking through all that and getting to the end.

Now I'll get back to work!
