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!
