Might and Magic Book One: The Secret of the Inner Sanctum (also known as simply Might and Magic) is an early role-playing video game, first in the popular and influential Might and Magic franchise. It was released in 1986 as New World Computing's debut, ported to numerous platforms and re-released continuously through the early '90s.
This movie uses the Japanese version of the game, which doesn't have the item glitch that allows you to skip most of the game.
katsuster improves on their previous run of the game by 04:37.78 minutes by using the Magic Boost Fountain for free transportation magic, and more optimized key inputs including sub-frame inputs for skipping messages.
Might and Magic, released in 1986, was the first installment in the series that would later evolve into a whole fictional universe, encompassing both the actual M&M games and a multitude of subseries and spin-offs made in their own genres, including King's Bounty, Heroes of Might & Magic, and others.
Normally, this game is rather long. This movie by katsuster skips most of it by using a glitch that allows the player to get all the important items in a matter of a few minutes. It also improves on the previous run that used the same glitch by optimizing the usage of the glitch and by utilizing subframe inputs to skip messages faster. For more details, you can read the author's notes.
katsuster has also provided an encode of the run that has a map and important values next to the gameplay.
