As part of an ongoing IGN video series capturing developer reactions to speed runs, the latest on DOOM Eternal with id Software is simply wonderful to watch. With executing producer Marty Stratton, game director Hugo Martin, design director Jerry Keehan and programmer Evan Eubanks stunned at how a number of exploits seemingly break the game.
From clipping to using the 200+ frames-per-second performance on PC to glitch velocity and jumping to bugs that can turn bullets into auto-missiles.
Check it out.
What's interesting is that the team actively discuss whether these glitches should be patched out of the game, whilst they marvel at the sheer insanity and effort that goes into a speed-run of this nature. Or, whether or not they put Easter Eggs and cut-scenes and messages in the sky specifically for speed-runners.
