What’s your favorite puzzle game? Why is it your favorite? Is it 3D, 2D, do the puzzles change each time you play or are they the same? And the question Speedrun Fast is most interested in: how long does it take you to beat that game? Needless to say, every time you play, it ought to take less and less time due to familiarity. But what if we told you there was a puzzle adventure game that only took one measly minute to beat? Since you’ve read the title, you probably already know where this is going. But what you don’t know is that you’re about to see every world record run of every any% category of Myst.
This is a run of the original Sega Saturn version of Myst. It’s completed in six minutes by Shentok. Rather than going from oldest to newest, we’ve set the videos up from slowest to fastest. This run was made in June of 2016.
Here’s the Real Myst masterpiece edition, a remake of the original. Real Myst means the version of the game with additional puzzles to complete. Not that that matters here since we won’t be seeing it at all. Performed by itsmanofpopsicle in December 2015, this run is a whole four minutes shorter than the first, at two minutes and one second. Care to guess the time on the next one?
If you guessed a minute and six, you’re right. This one’s by Veovis just a few days ago! We’ve just got one more run to show you today, and it’s less than a minute long, so whatever you do, don’t blink.
And the fastest Myst run ever goes again to Veovis. This is the original Myst masterpiece edition without the “real” addition to it (confusing, I know). In November 2016, Veovis beat this game in a short 52 seconds.
Hope you enjoyed this one. What’s that you say? Did it go by too fast? Maybe these 40+minute runs of Force Unleashed 1 and 2 will keep you occupied.
