Description

Survive the Gordian Hour

Rage, rage against the dying of the Light.

Noveria is a planet shrouded in mystery and blanketed in a deep, ever-present cold. Ambitious, and often morally ambiguous private labs seek the anonymity and covert nature of dealings with the Noveria Development Corporation to pursue their research on the secretive planet. The days on the barely habitable planet are 52 hours long. Towards the planetary pole however, north of the Skadi Mountains, at one very specific time of year, there is exactly 100 minutes of pure, cold, evil darkness. This 100 minutes has been referred to in popular myth as the Gordian Hour. No species in existence has survived the Gordian Hour. This is therefore the ideal location for the next test...

The instructions are simple. The task, most would say, is impossible. You must defy the myth of the Gordian Hour. To survive the Gordian hour, you must complete 5 stages in a cumulative time of less than 100 mins. On insanity, you must complete 3 challenges in a cumulative time of less than 100 mins. Valiant efforts will be remembered.

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Note: This challenge series is to celebrate 100 sub-20 runs in the history of the Themed Challenge thread. Thank you hardcore soloists for all your effort and for your incredible feats! I hope you enjoy the challenge this new mini series brings! Best of luck! For those of you who enjoy the challenge and not necessarily going for time, there is still an achievement for you! Have fun!
