    Congratulations! Several epic articles, three versions, two previous Hell shots, and one development of a game inspired by it later… What a long, strange trip it’s been.

    Is there a reason you don’t just ride around on top of Olmec?

  2. I sure hope you do keep making these videos. I’ve been watching them on and off since you started, but I only just bought the game two weeks ago, and seeing the daily in which I just died in the mines (or occasionally beat Olmec) played properly is fascinating.

    • You bought the game two weeks ago and you’re beating Olmec already? Oh dear. I’ve still never got past the ice caves, and I bought the Steam version day one.

      • Yep, bought the game on the 23rd of October, beat it for the first time on the 29th. If you’re the kind of person who prefers to avoid spoilers, then it might help to know that I’m not and that sped things up considerably. Also, out of about 90 games I did beat Olmec twice, but out of the rest I mostly died in the mines and I’ve only gotten to the ice caves maybe 5 times in total. In other words, luck may have had a lot to with it. In case you’re interested, here’s the proof: http://youtu.be/TScbBJME3cw

        • I think if I was worried about spoilers I never would have got as far as I have! I’d have given up ages ago thinking the game was just endless mines.

          • Fair enough, that just seemed like a possible explanation for slower progress (although thinking about it, I guess that wouldn’t make a huge difference in terms of survival skills, it’s more of a getting to hell kind of thing). I had a look at that video again though, and I am really bad in it even by my current standards, so I think it’s mostly luck.

            I probably wouldn’t have bought the game in the first place if I hadn’t realised how deep it was by watching a bunch of videos, so I try to not feel too bad about spoilers, but it can be a bit hard whenever Tom Francis or Chris Remo mention how they try to avoid spoilers as much as possible.

    Good Job!

    Its been fun watching you play this. (also subscribed to your youtube channel)

    Anyways, your run inspired me. (and some comments helped) Just yesterday I also beat hell! (only 300ish tries) however, one of the comments, i believe on your youtube vid talked about collecting the mummy vomit in the kapala, and it worked! Each time it spews, you get one health. I went into hell with 25 health… and i needed it! Stupid shopkeepers… Anyways, hope you (and the others) keep going with this. It is a fun way to relax watching you all get lucky and unlucky every day.

  5. Spot on with this write-up, I truly believe that this site needs a great deal more attention.
    I’ll probably be returning to read through more, thanks for the info!
