Blindfold Run
So, this is something I'm thinking of doing. After all achievements etc I found I still want a big goal to be working towards; this seemed an attractive and interesting project.

I want to make this worthwhile: if I'm serious about doing it I would love to use it for something bigger - to gain a little publicity and use it to increase general interest in SMB again, maybe even to raise some money for charity like I have seen done with whole-game speedruns on occasion.

The run would essentially be an any%, with focus on my not being able to see the screen for the duration rather than on the speed.

So, I guess this is a seed: a means of expressing the idea to the community so I can get ideas from you guys. If you like the idea, or have any comments or thoughts of your own, please leave comments. If you think you could help out or offer advice as to using the run for charity, please let me know below as well. I have little experience with this sort of thing so, yea xD anyway, I'd love to start thinking seriously about this, and I can't wait to hear what you guys think :p ta bros!!

Sounds interesting, but do you really think it's possible? Have you already tried playing any levels blindfolded/with your eyes closed? I suppose you've played Super Meat Boy long enough to have most of the levels carved deep into your muscle memory, and if it's any% run you can just skip dark world which makes it all a whole lot easier. But what about the bosses? Do you think you can handle those?

I've dabbled with most of light world 1, just getting a feel for what I'd be up against. It will be incredibly difficult, even compared to many preset parts of the game. Bosses will be a challenge but I'll take it one at a time and I have a suspicion even the Larry fight can be done blindfolded on the first attempt with an algorithm.. I don't know, it'll be interesting to try out :) but I am not getting half the hype I was hoping for so it may not happen at all

That would be extremely challenging to accomplish, but if you can, then go ahead. I wouldn't expect you to earn much money from it unless you were a Youtube partner though. Good luck.

I am expecting very little now to be honest :L I think I will stick to speedruns and I might do some harder levels blind, IL style :p no reason I should just forget it, right? ^^

REmember. Nothing is impossible. Just hellishly unlikely.
