    Submission Message
    I am submitting this video and these pictures as evidence of my world record breaking score of 1615980 on Williams Bubbles (arcade) I achieved today 03/05/15.

    The pictures are not dated (that I'm aware of) but I included them to show that I have had milestones that I surpassed on the way to breaking the record.

    I have been practicing this game for a couple of hours per day since the end of October 2014. I have had many days of studying the small nuances of this game to the point of annoying my friends and family. This achievement has taken months of dedication and practice, and hundreds of hours of "conditioning" and studying the game.

    I kept a spreadsheet of my progress but it is not complete as I stopped updating it at the end of January. I intended to include it just to see my early progress but when I attempted to upload it, it registered as an invalid file.

    I hope the information I have provided is sufficient, as this has been a lot of work for me to accomplish. This is my first submission so I hope everything is in order.

    It's funny how critical you are of your game play early on. You don't usually that in a world record video. Still, very nice run. :)

    Unreal. The old record is nearly 31 years old! Kudos.

    Great!
    The late Python Anghelo would be quite proud (he passed away after a long battle with cancer early April of last year so this is a perfect tribute almost to the anniversary)
    The concept for this game came about in Chicago one evening when a group of game designers/programmers were sitting around at a bar and one of them mentioned that there were no game ideas left, everything had been done but the kitchen sink. He brought the idea into the office the next morning (as recounted by Ken Graham).

    Cheers!
    Are you inspired to find the joy in gaming?
