I just beat the game after 102 often frustrating runs. How did you do on your first time through?

124 I think. Was kind of milking it at the last 10, just went around the castle hoarding money.

It was like 21 hours and 172 children, I had a bunch of really, really terrible runs at the start of the game. I'm in NG+2 now with 220-something now and I think I have seen all the game has to offer.

I just finished the game today. I had 52 children and my time was 6:41. I was level 84. It was a lot of fun!

I finished my first playthrough at approximately 65. I think I topped 100 going through a new game plus; it also doesn't help that I simply cannot play anything except a Hokage, Assassin, Paladin, or Barbarian. Being able to re-roll your 3 children was the best upgrade I ever purchased in that game!

I think I had something obscene like around 300 at 20 hours. A lot of that was probably due to not locking down the castle and trying to get enough gold to upgrade stuff, or I'm terrible at the game.

74 after about 12 hours. Feel like the last 10 were for the final encounter. Another 10 towards the 3rd boss, who was a real bastard. But I rolled from a victory over the 3rd boss to a victory over the 4th with the same hero, it was fucking epic!

He died shortly thereafter. :(

152. I feel like a gamepad is the proper way to play the game, but that the Xbox gamepad is not. Analog sticks are not what this game was meant for and that D-pad is, of course, terrible.

I have no idea what this game is about. I don't know what you're doing to those kids, and I'm not sure I want to.

YOU LEAVE THOSE CHILDREN ALONE. YOU MONSTERS.

150 in 18 hours. I spent a while upgrading and exploring so I'm sure it could be lower than that.

I think I beat after 112. I was dumb not upgrading my carry weight, so I was using mostly basic items.

138ish. It is the dark future and we still use swords.

112 children at 16:28. I was brute forcing the final boss that may have cost me around 15 children.

Brad's stream made me decide to finish off the final boss after I had quit following some annoying attempts. 103. In the end it turned out a boring old paladin with dagger, that I had to turn to because the other two options were horrific, did the trick.

Finally did it. Clocked in at like 353 or something. That would have been about seriously 30-40 shorter if the last boss hadn't fucked me up so much. Then I finally got a tip to try Archmage with dagger. It works really well on both bosses. Although you need not get hit cause the archmage goes down like a lightweight. The pros are you can literally sit there and spam daggers and win as long as the boss stays stunlocked from the daggers.

Finally beat it. I kept doing poorly when fighting Ponce de Leon, once I finally beat that I only needed a few more runs.

Something like 230 children across 50 hours. I have the bad habit of trying to upgrade everything.

Don't have a screen grab to back this up, but I think around 215? I went for all the upgrades and brute forced my way through a bunch of the bosses...
