Has anyone ever tried to speedrun Geneforge as a challenge (ie. only do what is absolutely essential to win the game in the least amount of time)?

different. I chose the impossible. I chose… Ascension."

Probably. You need to define what is the minimum requirement. Leaving the island is obviously easier than getting to the Geneforge, resolve in one of several ways, and then leave the island.

I think that leaving the island is sort of a cop out.

Either killing Sholai, or helping Trajkov by killing Goetssche and getting the gloves, would make an excellent speedrun.

I killed Goettsch and destroyed the Geneforge in a (with massive cheating) fast speed run. Took about 30 minutes.

If people don't think there's something wrong with you, there's something wrong with you.
Oh well. Another day, another dementia.
