Speedrunning is one hell of an artform, but one gamer just took their skills to a new level.
On Sunday, during this year’s Awesome Games Done Quick, the gaming speedrunning event that raises money for charity, speedrunner Mr. Game completed the notoriously difficult Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in just two hours while blindfolded.
The event itself raised over $3.4 million for Prevent Cancer, a U.S. nonprofit dedicated to cancer prevention and early detection, with Mr. Game’s run alone raising £133,463 ($182,600), per NME.
Before the run, Mr. Game demonstrates the legitimacy of the blindfold on camera. Then, over the next two hours and 35 seconds, he uses audio cues and his long hours of meticulous training to complete the game.
The run starts at 1:41 in the video above, and here’s one highlight, a mini boss fight with the Blazing Bull:

There’s a whole bunch of impressive speedruns from the event on Games Done Quick’s YouTube channel, if you want more where that came from.
