Author's comments and explanations:
Agent X gets bored of searching for his teammates, so he warps Herbert's balloon with him to the Wilderness, improving his record by 28 seconds. (hoping moons, but better not to get so excited this time)

  • Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
  • Uses warps
  • Genre: Adventure
  • Genre: Puzzle
  • Genre: Storybook


Well... I improve the published run by 28 seconds. How? Well... On mission 9, you're supposed to follow the arrow to find your teammates that Herbert kidnapped, but somehow I overlooked this: you can skip all this by not following the arrow and going to the Tallest Mountain right away. So either Gary is a liar, or the devs forgot to block it by accident.

Even though the YouTube feedback of the current run makes me sick, I was expecting kids to complain, not grown up adults shitposting in the comments.

Other comments

Thanks to Invariel and Toothache for motivating me to try the skip out. Currently I'm done. A v2 TAS will be made when I get more skilled at TASing... also until I find new glitches.
