world record as of 11/7/18, this time also was the last world record i needed to take to have world record in all four portal categories.
Q: That looks like a cheat!
A: Its probably a glitch, read more about them here: https://wiki.sourceruns.org/wiki/Category:Portal
Q: Why does the run start at 53.01?
A: This is the use of something we call "vault save," essentially, the first 57 seconds of the game, the player is stuck in a vault and cannot do anything. Because no inputs are required for these 57 seconds, the portal speedrunning community came to a consensus that it would be reasonable to skip the start by loading a save. The use of this save does not invalidate the run in any way.
This category actually sucks - I'll take whatever time is WR :)
I stream myself speedrunning portal and other videogames here:
