‘Breathe of the Wild’ streamer completes the game without ever stepping back


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Dreamer Everest Pipkin has completed the game without ever setting foot on his trail, a feat that took “countless moments of terror”.

What documents the player has traveled everywhere in the game – after discovering a feature called Hero’s Path Mode – Everest decided they’d try to beat the infamous travel-heavy game without ever stepping into the same spot twice (thanks, IGN)

Eight months later, Everest shared that his quest – “The Traveling Swordsman Problem” – had been successful. It resumed six times “and countless moments of terror as it started to rain”, but Everest eventually completed the game without backing down on its own.

As the journey began, Everest predicted that the incredibly specific completion goal would result in “a fiddle, spiraling, backtracking journey that would force me into rapid Byzantine paths through the world.”

At the start of the race, Everest quickly learned that ‘savescoming’ (reloading a save if it failed) did not work as the map sometimes tracked the reload as movement on the map.

Documenting their experience on Twitter, Everest explains that the idea arose when they realized they could essentially play Snake with the DLC (downloadable content) map mode.

The biggest obstacle on the way to Everest, instead of careful route planning, turned out to be a host of accidents. as they pay attention, dying in the wrong place, slipping off a cliff and even poorly timed Blood Moons can all force one to start all over again.

To counter the risk of an untimely restart, Everest regretted that breath of the wild Playthroughs included “so waiting”, sometimes having to wait an entire day before being able to play.

In other news, former Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 developer Chris Avalon has shared his thoughts on what’s going on with the reportedly troubled project.
