Spelunky 2 speedrunner and world record holder Twiggle dies at 25

Spelunky 2 speedrunner and world-record holder Matthew Joseph Julian, better-know by his online alias Twiggle, has died at the age of 25. Twiggle came to prominence for his in-depth knowledge of the game and expertise across the many different varieties of Spelunky and Spelunky 2 speed run. PC Gamer spoke to him last year, after he managed to break the game’s world record for gold acquisition (through the rather brilliant of method of just blowing everything up).

The news was shared by Twiggle’s friend Xanagears, a modder and fellow speedrunner, who told PC Gamer that he was “the first player to reach 7-99 and he still holds the score world record in the non Cosmic Ocean category.” This is one of several possible best times/achievements players aim for in the game, and a noteworthy feather in anyone’s cap.
