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/

    I love how they're both mesmerized and annoyed at the same time :) sometimes the devs just whine about how the speedrunners are ruining their game

    This game would be very pleasant to play if they added more checkpoints. The distance between checkpoints makes this much harder, and it makes me simply not wanna play it.

  • cgpinata514

    I don’t even play this game nor even heard about it... yet I can’t help myself from watching both myself and the devs be impressed with what this person does to these games

    I’ve seen this game so many times and I thought it was like a trials fusion knock off but I’m actually gonna try it out now

  • RobGcraft

    To be fair, this is the type of game that actually makes sense with speedrunning. Downhill mountain biking is supposed to be fast, precise, with a bunch of weird strats to improve time

    I had never heard of this game till i saw this video on my feed. I saw the thumbnail and like immediately knew what it was about. I didnt watch the video, i just went and found it on xbox game pass, and ive not been disappointed. Now im just watching to see how he does the first two mountains. This game is wicked fun

    Would be cool if the Speedrunner would join the conversation, but its already pretty interesting to watch.

  • laos85

    This speed run is much longer than that Flatout clone game speedrun. Forgot the name.

  • Rd

    What is this?! This game looks fun as heck.

  • DesertCow1000

    I feel like speedrunning this game fits with the spirit of the downhill mountain biking experience ... skipping turns, pioneering new trails/jumps, etc.

    • Raptor000

      I think the speedrunner restarted the entire level instead of a specific section since that was literally b4 the 1st checkpoint.

    Speedrunners will speedrun any gane but if you put a timer in your game, that's where it gets real.

  • theKWOKA

    "not sure how many of the unintended shortcuts hell do since they're risky" Speedruns are about taking the risky path for .1 second cut off the time. Even if it's a low probability. Because you have to do the fastest route and that's it. There is no other choice.

    • michael gudgeon
      michael gudgeon

      That's not true, speedruns are about finishing in the shortest time. He doesn't take the fastest route because it doesn't lead to the shortest time 99% of the time. This is true in many other speedruns. However someone else will take one extra risk and beat his time at some point

    Definitely need a "dev attempts "blind" speedrun then devs react to wr speedrun" type video. Would be curious to see a dev's speedrun vs a runner's.

      Depends if the devs are actually gamers. These guys put actual hidden paths in their games for speedrunners to take advantage of.

    • Megagon Industries

      Actually it is fun to see people getting the maximum out of your game even when it means they "break" it... however in this case there are only a few things we would consider broken, most of it is just very impressive skill. ;)
