Creator of Super Hexagon locked in brutal struggle to keep high score at his own game

Wired with the tale of a creator and the pupil who may just best him:

Cavanagh congratulated Killingsworth over Twitter when he posted proof of his new high score. Even if he’s not the best at everything, Cavanagh still delights in having created a brutally difficult game. Only 19 of its roughly 50,000 owners, he says, have seen the game’s ending screens by lasting longer than a minute during its breakneck final level — on which Cavanagh still holds the high score.
