Fancy feet: Speedrunner conquers Celeste’s C-Sides using a dance pad

Celeste dance pad

Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 has ended. At the speedrunning event’s conclusion, a total of over $2.7 million was amassed for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. While many runs were impressive, one, in particular, stood out among the rest. Speedrunner PeekingBoo managed to beat Celeste‘s devilish C-Sides with a time of 14:41 using only a dance pad.

Could a full run of Celeste with a dance pad be far behind?

Check out PeekingBoo’s Celeste run down below:

How he managed to do this while providing commentary is beyond me.

As you can see, PeekingBoo has some trouble in a small number of spots getting Madeline to the Crystal Heart at the end of the stage. This is exasperated by the fact he insists on getting the Golden Strawberry in each level, which requires a deathless run. Even still, completing the eight chapters in under 15 minutes with a dance pad is unbelievable. Especially since he didn’t die on the last stage.

Enthusiasts, what are your thoughts on this incredible speedrun? Do you think Celeste can be beaten, 100%, using a dance pad? What were your favorite runs of AGDQ 2021? Let us know your answers to these questions below.
