Don't let Cuphead's art overshadow its soundtrack

Cuphead is out next Friday, and I can hardly believe it's almost here. I've been so obsessed with the exquisite art and animation that Kristofer Maddigan's big-band soundtrack has gone under-noticed. Nothing like a behind-the-scenes look at...

Of all games, Conan O'Brien plays Cuphead with Kate Upton

Forgoing the overdone romance bit at the beginning and the faux awkwardness from Kate Upton, this episode of Clueless Gamer is notable for featuring one of the most decidedly indie games on the show to date -- Cuphead. Coming later thi...

We'll have to wait until mid-2017 for Cuphead

Cuphead is not the type of game you want to see rushed, and as much as I would love to play it this year, I'm all for giving Studio MDHR more breathing room. Given the project's animation inspirations, the creators had hoped to finish the r...

Cuphead's platforming levels are brutal

For my money, Cuphead has unrivaled art direction and animation in the gaming space, but how does it actually play? Is it fun or frustrating? Well, it depends which side you're talking about. After trying Studio MDHR's run-and-gun title at ...

Get a load of this platforming level in Cuphead

For a good while there, Cuphead existed in my mind solely as a run-and-gun boss-rush game, and I would have been content with that approach given how gosh-darn gorgeous its art and animation are, but there are also platforming levels to br...

I can't get enough of Cuphead's character animations

This is the year Cuphead comes out and that makes me ridiculously happy. Time has an insightful new interview with Studio MDHR lead artist Chad Moldenhauer about the game and its wonderful hand-drawn animation, and oh my lord you need to s...

Cuphead artist, Jake Clark, has shared a selection of animations from the upcoming platformer. The hand-drawn, pencil cartoons popped up on his Tumblr and they are both awesome and strangely hypnotic...

Cuphead still looks amazing in this new trailer!

The above trailer for the cartoon-esque Cuphead was just unveiled at Microsoft's E3 press conference. The trailer shows off plenty of new enemies, including an evil carrot and a giant mermaid that Cuphead fights in an airplane.&n...

Hands-on with Cuphead: Equal parts charming and challenging

Cuphead has existed in a state of unreality to me since its E3 reveal. Despite seeing footage of the game, it remained in my mind a concept. One that I was in love with, mind. 1930s style animation. A character whose head is a cup. I love i...

Why do some developers shy away from surrealism in gaming?

When it comes to crafting videogames out of the norm, there’s one question developers should ask themselves: What are we afraid of? Games are the perfect medium for exploration of bizarre, unnatural worlds, and yet it seems few develo...

Cuphead is 40% done, going to be a trilogy

I can't believe Cuphead has only been in my life for less than a month after its quick E3 showing. I'm so attached to it already. It's the game I didn't know I needed. Forget these tired, 20-year old nostalgia trips. Every single Gree...

Cuphead gets a new trailer, still looks completely awesome

Have you seen Cuphead in motion yet? Watch the awe-inspiring trailer above, then read the rest of this article. Ready? Aside from this new gorgeous E3 trailer, developer StudioMDHR notes that the game has been pushed back to 2015 because o...

Cuphead could be this year's big run-and-gun game

That's my hope, anyway. Cuphead is one of those games I feel bad for not noticing sooner. Sporting a remarkable sense of style and animation, this looks to represent the best of the run-and-gun genre, with developer Studio MDHR citing infl...

The free editor I mentioned yesterday, Resolve 14, worked! After using OBS to capture the feed from my PVR instead of trusting its shitty recorder, I managed to crop the borders without it looking like garbage! I want to record something for a review
