🏃💨 Welcome to the Goblin and Coins speed-running community event! 🏃💨


A little bit of history for newcomers...

Hello! I've created a little retro platformer game and with the help of friendly SG community managed to polish it and release it on Steam back in late 2016. Since then, I've held a few of these marathons/events/puzzles in order for all of us to have fun and at the same time to give back to SG members who supported the game by giving them the chance to win some nice prizes. You're welcome to check out previous events, tasks that were required, gifts, winners, hints...

...and now!

We'll try to speed-run the game for the first time ever in these community events. Speed-running is when you're trying to rush through the game in the shortest time possible. Current world record for this game is 17 minutes and 51 seconds. I'm not expecting you'll try to beat that, but I've set a much slower time to be our entrance bar - 1 hour. I've also prepared bunch of very detailed guides on how to record your video, how to set up timers... Of course, there are other ways for you to participate and have fun, even if you don-t have the game and never played it. Let's dig in!


Fast train for the fans

  1. Speed-running task, access to the entire train
    • Finish Goblin and Coins in one sitting in under 1 hr (World record is under 18 minutes, so even if you take 3x longer you're still in). Play on casual, doesn't matter what % of coins you collect or how many lives you lose. Timer starts when you enter World I from the map screen. Timer ends when you enter the door after defeating the World 5 Boss.
    • Record the video of it and post to YouTube. You're not required to show your face nor verbally comment, but it's fine if you do.
    • Submit the video to the https://www.speedrun.com/Goblin_and_Coins to get your score verified.
    • Post a comment here in the event thread with a link to your verified score. (like this https://www.speedrun.com/Goblin_and_Coins/run/mr82x1dy for example)

    • Post a comment with a link to your brand new or existing video/playlist of playing the entire game of Goblin and Coins. YouTube channel must match the sg username (or sg username must be provided in video description if different). As this is not for speed-run, video can be split into several pieces.

3rd Speedrun attempt landed me at 36 minutes 31 seconds. I can live with that ^^
1st Speedrun was around 1h30 minutes, but it had been a while since I played the game, forgot a lot.
2nd run was 54 minutes, enough to qualify but I had gotten stuck on one particular level which messed my time up a lot (and it was quite embarrassing :D).

Waiting for verification on speedrun.com so have a bump for now.

It's been a long time since I've recorded a gameplay video of any sort, and I'm intrigued, but don't know if I'll be able to get around to doing this one; still great to see the event, and happy to finally be able to bump the thread without it already being on the front page! :) Gotta go fast bump!

For anyone who has the game it's not too hard to set up the video recording, I basically just followed NB264's guide. Speedrunning isn't as bad as it may seem either, I got under 1 hour on my second attempt, only because I forgot so much about the game in my first run. I'm not much of a speedrunner either since I generally don't particularly like it, but this game it was kind of fun. Youtube is kind of a dick for not allowing you to upload any video that's longer than 15 minutes without "verifying your account" which requires your cellphone though. Give it a shot I'd say if you're interested in the games being given away.

Bump.

In memory of Hob, who tonight beat Dark Souls 1-3 and Bloodborne without getting hit once - and then went on to complete his Godrun with a no-hit run of Demon's Souls... only to get hit by the tutorial boss.

It's moments like these when you really get to appreciate that a speedrun of Goblin and Coins takes about 15 minutes to retry instead of 10 hours.
