Going into 2011, the Red Ball Series was in quite a rough spot. The strong physics-platformer foundation established by its first two entries was almost entirely stripped away after three lackluster, puzzle-focused side games released in a row. Thankfully, through his next release, Red Ball 3, the series’ creator, Eugene Fedoseev, finally decided exactly what he wanted a Red Ball game to be: an interactable physics sandbox that allowed players to make of it what they wanted, including trying to go through it as fast as possible. Luckily, Red Ball 3 also came bundled with a few physics exploits and glitches, such as corner jumping and pause jumping, that allowed the speedrun to develop much further than anyone could have anticipated over the span of around a decade. This is the story of how and why 13 different speedrunners set over 50 world records in Red Ball 3, the game that saved the Red Ball series.

Around half of the songs used in this video are from Toontown: Corporate Clash, a fantastic recreation of Disney’s Toontown: Online that is leaps and bounds better than the original despite only being worked on by volunteers –

A lot of Club Penguin music has been uploaded to YouTube in high quality by one of the game’s original composers, @ChrisHendricks

Also, the awesome Club Penguin song remixes used in this video were created by @AARonHDYT
