My laptop won't allow me to play this!
More specifically my keyboard that only has arrows on the numpad is making this and limbo unplayable they simply don't recognize those arrow keys. D: Any solutions??

If you have some Dual Shock laying around, just plug it into your laptop. Or you could try to remap some of your laptop keys using some program/script

I use a wired Xbox 360 controller for all my platforming games. They're pretty cheap, I got mine for around $10 used. It would take care of your keyboard problem, plus Super Meat Boy was designed to be played with a controller.

Cant you rebind?

Yeah, you should be able to rebind keys by editing the buttonmap.cfg file in notepad... ;)

Yeah I remapped stuff in buttonmap.cfg. My arrow keys work fine, but shift+space is an incredibly awkward position for your hand. You have to either hold a button for long periods of time with a non-dominant finger, or turn your hand outward at an angle that's difficult to support -- either of which can cause some nasty carpal tunnel. Frankly I'm a little baffled as to why he picked Shift for dash instead of something that's actually close to the spacebar.

I recommend rebinding dash and jump to Z-X.
