With the updated demo starts the Lore Finder speedrun contest! The top three winners will be immortalized in the full release of the game through a gold, silver, and bronze trophy bearing their names and run times. Additionally, anyone who submits a video of their run will be added to the game's credits under a special speedrunning section!

If you want to be listed with a different name than your itch username, please let us know in your submission post.

The contest will run through Sunday, December 23. The official end time is December 24 at 3 am Eastern Time.

Timezones got you confused? See a countdown until the end of the contest.


Share runs, tips, strategies, glitches, and link speedrun streams in the #lore-finder channel of our Discord. There are several speedrunners in the Discord channel already and they're more than happy to answer questions or teach you things.


  • You can submit runs multiple times, assuming your latest submission has a better time than your previous
  • For runs to be counted as submissions in the contest they must be submitted in this thread before the contest ends. If you get a better time before the contest ends but post it after the contest ended, it will not be counted
  • All runs are in the any% category and glitches are allowed
  • Runs are valid whether using the web version or the downloadable version
  • All runs must be completed using the game's built-in speedrun mode, regular mode runs will not be accepted
  • Times will be judged using the speedrun mode's in game timer
  • The run starts upon entering the game (when the in game timer starts), and ends upon dealing the final blow to Algarott (at which point the in game timer ends)
  • All submissions must include a video link to your run that will remain available throughout the month of January 2019.
  • Videos can be hosted on Twitch, YouTube, or any other reasonably accessible video sharing platform. If you're unsure if your platform is reasonably accessible, it probably isn't
  • We reserve the right to deny game-breaking glitches that are clearly a result of a bug which should be fixed, so that we can fix bugs for members of our community who are not speedrunners
  • No tool-assisted-speedruns allowed

First attempt that was kinda okay, movement went bad but was pretty lucky at the bosses. :D Will try to do better!

My second attempt at this game, and my second attempt at speedrunning in general. I'm hoping to still get a lot lower, but it was fun!

First good try with librarian one-cycle. I lost lots of time in the middle and to Algarott, though.

Everything bad after miniboss :)

Bad Aggy.

Updating my time.

Not trying to spam, but I’m really satisfied with this one.


No worries, submit as many times as you like (assuming your latest is the lowest)

My itchio account has a different username than I usually go by elsewhere. DonQuikonga is my usual name. I submit this as DonQuikonga.



Not satisfied with this but improvement nontheless.
