The current world record for a Portal speedrun has been demolished by several SourceRuns members, who managed to complete the game in just over eight minutes. Not bad going.
The “Portal Done Pro-Er” run shaves nearly a minute off the old “Portal Done Pro” world record set back in 2010. The new record time sits at 8 minutes and 31.93 seconds. This time is measured from the moment the player first gains crosshairs to the second that GLaDOS is destroyed.
The run was completed by SourceRuns members Nick “Z1mb0bw4y” Roth, Josh “Inexistence” Peaker, Nick “Gocnak” Kerns, and Sebastian “Xebaz” Dressler.
“To be SDA legal we have done our run without using scripts/cheats/hacks for any portion of the run,” the team stated. “This run first started after the discovery of a new glitch, which snowballed into a whirlwind of discoveries of new tricks, skips, and glitches.”
“We started running chambers in April, took a brief hiatus, and then resumed work in late June. The bulk of the run was completed in about two week’s time”
