Retro Revival of the Day: Upcoming Video Game Inspired by 1930s Cartoons

Cuphead is an upcoming run and gun video game created by Studio MDHR with a unique look that emulates cartoon art from the 1930s. The developers say the game is scheduled to release sometime in 2014 initially for the PC and then potentially to consoles after that.

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. Play as Cuphead or Mugman (single or co-op!) as you traverse the islands to find new challengers, rank up, and eventually compete in the grand tournament. You must become acquainted with the boundless variety of weapons, supers and secrets to stand a chance against all 30+ battles.

We are targeting PC first. Once that is complete we will port to other platforms (Mac/Linux) and hopefully consoles (PS4, Xbox One).

Conceptually, these cycle-skates are a cool idea and definitely one-up any unicyclist. What these existed today? EXPN would actually be worth watching.
