I got the following one with same number of moves but fewer captures :

1.Pb2-b4 Pe7-e5 2.Pb4-b5 Dd8-g5 3.Pb5-b6 Dg5-e3
4.Pd2xe3 Ff8-a3 5.Dd1-d5 Pd7-d6 6.Dd5xb7 Cb8-d7
7.Db7-a6 Fc8-b7 8.Cb1xa3 O-O-O 9.Ta1-b1 Rc8-b8
10.Tb1-b2 Fb7-a8 11.Pb6xa7

Who is the recordman in such a case ?

Thanks for your interesting tasks,
