Author's comments and explanations:
Speedy TAS of 2016.

Stage by stage comments

Stage 1: Main Menu

We take a shortcut to "COMPETE IN ONE EVENT", because the other events are slower.

Stage 2: Player Name and Nationalism

This is a hard stage, because the cursor moves slowly and does not wrap around the grid. Actually, this is the hardest player naming screen I have ever seen! Our player gets appointed a single character name: "." AKA Point. We also need to appoint an arbitrary flag for . for no reason whatsoever. . is not even allowed as a name in any earthly national state, so the whole flag is pointless, but . ends up with USA, because it is the fastest.

Stage 3: 100-meter Dash

Usa in Bolt runs 100 meters in 9.58 seconds, but . does it in 3.74.

During the 100-meter dash . also runs around the world thrice. This means that .'s running speed is about 10% of light speed.


Samsara: "Is it already April?"

Samsara: I'm rejecting this run for being incomplete. A TAS of this game, or any other game like it, should complete all of the events, not just one.
