Castle Malloy Speedrun, 1

I've decided to work on a speedrun for Nancy Drew: The Haunting of Caste Malloy. I did a little bit of work on it, during last week's Saturday stream. We discovered that the first main part of the game has two different conversation layouts. There's one if you've talked to Kit, and there's one if you haven't talked to Kit. Maybe it's a timesaver, if you ignore Kit's existence for as long as possible!

I figured I could do some of the busywork here on the blog, instead of on a livestream.

Let's start with the opening conversation with Kyler. At the first break in the conversation, there are two options that you can pick. Those conversations go like this:

Nancy: He disappeared as a prank?
Kyler: He adores...
Kyler: He'll show up. Mind you, it may not be...
Nancy: "Why did that man...?" or "So you're here by yourself now?"

Nancy: You mean the wedding hasn't been called off?
Kyler: Absolutely not.
Kyler: He'll show up. Mind you, it may not be...
Nancy: "Why did that man...?" or "So you're here by yourself now?"

As you can see, the conversation is basically the same, no matter which option you pick. Option 2 is about five seconds faster, since Kyler's immediate response is a two-word sentence, not two full sentences.

(More tomorrow.)

Yeah, I'd go with Option 2.
