One of the interesting games to come out of E3 2014 was an indie title called Cuphead.
I know what you might be thinking, “Cup. Head. What in the world could that game be about?”
Well. The answer is pretty straight forward. It is a game about a guy who has a cup for a head. I’ll just let that sink in for a minute.
OK. Sunk in? Good. Let’s move on.
To be specific, Cuphead is a 2D, side-scrolling shooter that sports a hand drawn 1930’s era cartoon aesthetic. We don’t know much about the story or anything specific about the game play. But, the developer Studio MDHR has a lot of experience with the genre having developed GunStar Heroes and a CONTRA title.
I can’t call it a beautiful game, but if the animation is as smooth in the final product as it was in the trailer then Cuphead could be a very appealing option when it drops next year. Regardless, it should help scratch the family gaming itch next year.
Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Wow! I loved Gunstar Heroes, so it’s so great to hear that the developers are making games again after so many years!
The art looks a bit like a ripoff of anime though. Not sure about that.
Looking forward to it anyway. Shooters are my favorite type of game. Hopefully Cuphead can stand with the greats like Halo and Call of Duty!
