Introducing ‘Cuphead,’ The Video Game That Looks Like A 1930s Cartoon
  |  @   |  

If you’re a fan of both video games and old school animation, Cuphead may just be one you want to keep an eye on.

The game comes from Studio MDHR, who describe it as a 1930s cartoon-inspired run-and-gun game in the style of a one-on-one fighter. Their hope is to have episodes of the game, each with 10-15 boss fights, and to eventually break the Guinness World Record for most boss fights in a run-and-gun game.

Read a longer description and check out a pair of teaser trailers below.

Cuphead is a classic run ‘n’ gun set in the style of a one-on-one fighting game universe. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930’s, the visuals and audio were painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional cel animation (hand drawn & hand inked!), watercolor backgrounds, and live jazz recordings.

You can learn more about the game at the developer’s blog.

The plan is to release Cuphead sometime in 2014, first on PC and then hopefully on other platforms such as Mac/Linux and possibly even consoles like Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
