That headline is not a joke. At 15 minutes and 38 seconds of playtime, streamer and speedrunner SimlpySeze now holds the world record for a child taken “whisked away to safety” in The Sims 4.
That world record was confirmed on July 23, 2017. The story was picked up by Kotaku, who notes that during the stream SimlpySeze offers that they have to “have this baby and ignore it.”
Here’s the record run. The moment happens around the 19-minute mark in the video.
Congratulations are in order for yet another strange way to speedrun a game. I love that the community has come up with some absolutely bonkers stuff here, and this might be the weirdest category for a world record in the gaming genre that I’ve ever heard of.
Congrats, SimlpySeze, you crazy person.
