    I would not recommend trying to do this on your first playthrough. Understanding the mechanics and quirks of each chapter/section will easily put you over an hour of play time. You can use that first play through to pick up all the collectibles using the other guides though.

    As for this specific achievement you only need to complete chapters 1-8 in under an hour. Once chapter 9 starts, hit the alarm clock and your achievement will pop.

    This means that you have roughly 7-8 minutes on average to complete each chapter but some take 3-4 minutes and others 5+ where you have to wait for the game to progress itself (Chapters 7 & 8).

    I found it best to do this immediately after completing my first run as the game was still fresh in my head. Some puzzles are finicky like dropping the exit sign on both buttons in chapter 1 but even taking extra time with that you should still come in under an hour easily.

    Timing myself I finished just under 40 minutes.

    Overall there aren't really any strats other than memorizing the pathes you take and solving each area as fast as you can.

    BlindyMcSqueezyI too have beaten the game in under a hour multiple times and nothing has popped. Also like Wabbit said my timer is nowhere to be seen after turning it on in the menu.

    HippoCrisisI have the timer showing but just did it in 39 min and it didn't pop. It was actually attempt 1 at the 35 achievement hopefully they'll pop together when I manage that?

    I've composed a visual guide to the superliminal achievement which I believe is a good basis on completing the speed runner achievement as well, I know there are a few others out there I just figured I'd share my take on it 🙂
