PLAYING CUPHEAD WITH CUPS OF WATER is a Smosh Games series debut called Damien Breaks Games. It stars Damien Haas playing Cuphead.

Video Description

"Today, I’m playing #Cuphead, a challenging game that I’m playing with an even more challenging controller! Can cups of water replace a controller for Cuphead? I guess we’re about to find out…"


Damien played through two levels, a 'Run and Gun', where he died 6 times before completing it, and a Boss Level, where he died 4 times before completing it.

Challenging Controller

Instead of using a regular game controller, Damien used various cups of water connected to the game, with him sticking his fingers into the water, completing the circuit, acting as the controller.


  • The video was originally called: 'Hacking a Game with Water? - Damien Breaks Cuphead'
  • The video's original thumbnail shows Damien wearing a light blue t-shirt, whereas the t-shirt is actually white in the video.
  • Damien's insistence of "that one didn't count" stems from his twitch streams, where saying that he's had zero deaths, despite dying many times, is a common occurrence.
