One Hand Challenge
To everyone who is reading this I am sorry as usual. This week in one of the most awkward challenges Qinji set the bar at 5_3. Other persons to almost snag the win included included Wizard and Skooma. K.H. gets credit this week as the best run for a new person to the challenge. I would personally like thank TimidTofu for giving up time he could have used to get a better run so he could help others in the community. And finally; this challenge in a nutshell... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzivN2oDpsM

-Original Post-

Hello. We all know Nuclear Throne is a rather simple game and thanks to Camshaft it is about to get a lot more simple.

The person who posts the furthest most single player recording of a Nuclear Throne run while using Fish and only moving by use of his special ability before June 21, 2014 will receive a game via steam (note the rules below).

Run Specific Rules:
  • Players must select Fish.
  • Players must use Fish's active ability to move.
  • Use of movement controls other than Fish's active is prohibited.
  • Starting with gold weapons is not allowed, but they can be picked up.
  • No limit to crowns.
  • No limit to mutations (Throne Butt can be taken and used).
  • If Throne Butt is selected players are only allowed to change direction with the mouse.
  • No limit to weapons.
  • Victory is based on distance.
Recording Rules: The run must be done with update 30 or 31. After the run ends please leave the death screen up for at least 5 seconds so the end level can be confirmed; the distance of the run will be determined by the death screen assuming it appears accurate (and thus will determine who wins). In the event of a lock up the last level that fully loaded (and was seen in the video) will be counted as the final level. The game cannot be modded aside from the use of recording software. The run must be done on a version of the game that all Nuclear Throne players have access to. The video must also be viewable in the U.S. so that I can confirm the run happened (strongly suggest Youtube or Twitch). The videos must be imbedded in responses to this post or have a direct link to the video in the response to this post. Do not put any visual or time related edits (aka cuts) into the video during the duration of the run. Audio edits and voice overs are fine. If you pause or go afk during the run just leave it in the video.
Win Rules: Players can post as many runs as they want as submissions as long as there is no obvious spam; players are also encouraged to post their best runs even if they do not win. If there is a tie I will give the win to the earliest post in response to this; it will be based on when the response is made in steam and not when the video is made. Previous challenge winners can still win this challenge. Members of the Nuclear Throne Dev Team and people associated with the Dev Team can win the challenge. Whoever wins will have to accept their game through steam by using the friend system (yes, this means I will friend the winner to pass over the gift, no you are not required to keep me on the friends list after the exchange). The player who does the best in the challenge will be offered a game. (yes, games other than nuclear throne will be the reward although do not expect anything too new or expensive). If the “winning run” is done by someone who has won a challenge before then an additional game will be offered to the person with the best run who has not won a challenge yet; this will count as a win for that person.
Dates: The official end time for responses to this post will be at 11:59 pm on Friday, June 20th, 2014 (right before it becomes June 21th, 2014) based on the GMT time zone (but because I am a stupid American I MAY accept runs that are posted after that time). I should get around to claiming the victor and trying to contact them around June 21th, 2014 (but that is entirely on the basis that my internet provider remembers to pay their electric bills again).

Post additional questions, clarifications, and ideas in the comments.

I may have been told a different rumor from someone I trust. If they confirm there will be no update then I will release the challenge as soon as I hear it (or I may put a different challenge out). I will also release the challenge late on Sunday if there is no update or announcement before then.

I'm officially going to wait until the update is (or is not) released, but if there is no fix for Mac I will pick a challenge that does not use Eyes or Chicken exclusively (I believe those are the main characters that are hindered by the issue). I will keep this post and just change the title to reflect the new challenge once things have been settled.

No no, because of the the Mac glitch I'll change the title and the challenge that will be used later today.

Alright, before I get busy and miss the update I have posted the challenge. Unless there are some crazy run/game breaking issues this is intended for update 31. Again if there is no update for some reason then this will stand for update 30. I would suggest holding off on doing runs until Vlambeer officially say something.

Thanks for having us in mind Solid ;D I hope it gets fix soon and we can try the Eyes Challenge, but for this week, barrel roll it is!

I talked with someone about this recently; I'd like to get in a challenge for each character before the character updates comes out. However, having a challenge for each character comes second to dividing the community. Challenges for Robot, Melting, Chicken, Rebel and now Fish have been completed; need Crystal, Eyes, Roids, Y.V., and Plant. I hope the issue gets fixed at some point or else things will get creative.

"Do a barrel roll (Z or R twice)!"
