(edit) Controller Is Needed!
If you don't have a gamepad to play on don't bother with buying the game. It's difficult enough on the 360 gamepad. On the keyboard is super hard to play. Just a quick tip to people looking into the game! Unless you are used to using a keyboard for platformers designed for gamepads.

I disagree,I finished the game long before I got a controller and don't think it is that much harder.

I understand if you are used to platformers with a keyboard, but if you have a choice I would suggest the 360 gamepad. Glad you acctually beat the game though!
The diffuculty of the game is based on your skill at platformers. I don't have a gamepad for my PC, but the game is really easy if you freeze the game precisely (Freeze game key: Alt) I've played a ton of platformers before and they weren't hard. I love glitching around the level.

Are you saying you're glad that he completed the game in spite of using a keyboard? There's nothing wrong with playing this on a keyboard, you're just bad at it. You can't assume that it's generally better to play it with a gamepad.

For instance, the current WR holder in the 106% category plays with a keyboard. It comes down to preference.

k, the "actually" threw me off. The rest applies to the thread in general though.

Yeah I understand that some people are good with it. I was just saying this to new players that are used to gamepads.
I wouldn't say don't bother if you just have a keyboard.

I'm used to controllers and play with a 360 controller an awful lot. I'm managing just fine with a keyboard. I also notice controllers tend not to last long on a game like this or just bug out :D

In fact: the best speedruns for this game are all done on keyboard... that's saying something, honestly.

Very few actually.

All the ones I've seen are on keyboard :>

So yeah, maybe I'm really unlucky finding non-keyboard speedruns.
