But, as Eurogamer points out, Blood Thunder was actually trolling organizers Games Done Quick (and Microsoft?) with a tongue-in-cheek prank. The faux Windows 10 update was edited into the cutscene.


Blood Thunder finished the rest of his speedrun free of hijinks and at a brisk time of 51 minutes and 54 seconds.
