Lonely Mountains: Downhill Developers React to 27 Minute Speedrun


Lonely Mountains: Downhill is a game about riding a mountain biike...downhill. Spoiler alert: it's much harder than speedrunner hhEnso makes it look. So "ride" along with the folks from Megagon Industries -- Jan Bubenik (Co-Founder), Daniel Helbig (Co-Founder), and Noah Carev (2D&3D Artist) as they watch five years of their hard work get beaten in less than a half hour.

If you like what you see, Eldfall Island (a brand new DLC) will be here on October 22nd! Learn more here: lonelymountains.com/

    tbh this game is totally underrated. Its so relaxing to jump on to lonely mountains after raging at a Fifa match. The amount of detail in the level design is very thorough and there is even dev support to this day.

    so the lesson Im learning here, is that if you want your game to be truly bug free, hire speedrunners to test it for you, cause they will try everything to break the game and do it faster lol

    Since some devs understandably feel saddened by their game done quick, perhaps just ask the runner for 1 answer - what's their total play time - that'd cheer things up.

    I like these guys. A lot of people on these runs you hear them trying to justify this, but they say that this guy might know the game better than they do. and.. they're partially correct. Except it's an entire community finding shortcuts. So they're against a culmination of many minds breaking the game apart. Lots of fun hearing these guys! Real humble about their game and was happy to hear them laughing and exclaiming about some shortcuts!

    This, exactly. They were speculating on how many times this runner must have crashed, and he probably did crash a lot, but it’s a whole community that improves together, not a ton of individuals separately. So it’s only logical that a small group of devs don’t find all this.
