Speedrunners are notorious for beating games in unique ways. Most of these amount to the discovery of exploiting glitches, while some use different controllers such as a guitar from Guitar Hero. This piece is no exception.
Speedrunner PeekingBoo managed to complete Cuphead by not using a keyboard, but with a Dance Dance Revolution mat. What also makes it amazing is he still completed it in 1 hour 24 minutes 40 seconds.
PeekingBoo said in an e-mail to Kotaku..
“Cuphead has been making the rounds lately because of how players have reacted when faced with a difficult challenge, I aimed to shed some light on the argument to see whether the game lived up to the hype by seeing if I could beat it casually with Dance Pads,” he said in an email to Kotaku. “After doing so in around 6-hours I decided to kick it up a notch.”
