Joseph Yanyuk, known by his screen name, “Chimaera,” is a speedrunner—someone who attempts to beat a video game as fast as possible. In this short play, Chimaera is livestreaming a speedrun, when there’s a terrorist attack in Red Square. Despite his personal connections with Moscow, Chimaera struggles to stay focused on the game, and complete a speedrun in world record time.
