Developers React to Near Impossible BPM Speedrun


Ride along with BPM devs Josh Sullivan (Level & Sound Design) and David Jones (Game Director) as they watch and react to two incredible speedruns by mprGG and Graslu.

Check out more from the speedrunners here:



BPM: Bullets Per Minute is rhythm-based FPS rogue-like that sees players going from room to room taking down hordes of enemies to the beat of the music. In this episode of Devs React to Speedruns, we're featuring two separate speedruns.

BPM: Bullets Per Minute was released on September 15, 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It just recently received an updated called BPM: Overdrive currently available for PC players which introduces new weapons and new difficulty options.

And then just a tonne of damage and range increases. The bosses would die during their intro cinematic, but then I still got smashed on the last level by being careless. Best game.

  • Dante


    8 dni temu

    It's because statistically a majority of viewers click off of a video within the first 20-30 seconds, so giving people a sneak peak of a exciting point later on in the video might keep them interested enough to watch the full thing. It's not really their fault, blame the majority of viewers that have super short attention spans.

  • bust boy

    its data, the first 15 seconds are where viewers will decide to watch or click off if you can get them in past 15 seconds they watch more of the video more often so you put a highlight at the top of the video to try and keep more people engaged. theres really no problem with it.

    It's called a highlight intro. It doesn't cram in as much as stuff possible, it isn't sped up, just the highlight, the biggest reaction. If you don't like it, then skip it, nobody is forcing you to watch it.

    Most developers love the speedrunning community and even sometimes consciously choose to leave those so-called "broken" elements in as long as it doesn't make it unfair to average people playing. As is the case here, most developers don't mind speed runners using these tricks. In fact, despite joking that they are skipping or bulldozing through years of hard work, it's quite flattering to them that someone would love their work so much to dedicate so much time to learning how the mechanics work and discovering exploits to help shave seconds off their time.
