No Death Run Advice (Contains Spoilers and Much Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth)
What suggestions do people have for a no death run? I've been trying, and I can't even get over that first spike pit reliably. I figure the Monk is good for shortening puzzles and grabbing stuff safely, the Knight makes a good point man because, if you're fast enough, you can go invincible to avoid falling damage. And, maybe the Scientist or the Twins? I recall their character specific sections are relatively safe. I've heard the Time Traveler can disqualify you, since you have to leave other characters in the past, and the thought of trying to do the Pyramid without dying makes me rule out the Adventurer outright. The Hillbilly is probably good for avoiding stupid drowning deaths, but climbing up and down the ferris wheel in the carnival gives me pause.
Also, in other people's experience, is the keyboard-mouse combo any more reliable for getting around than the gamepad? I know you can do a mid air jump if you're over a chasm or spike pit, but I can't seem to pull that off reliably, either.
