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

Favorite
- -

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).

WIth the release of Xbox One, you're inevitably going to be needing a few days off from work to bask in all of its wondrous glory. Well, the fine folks at Microsoft has that all figured out for you. They have provided a perfectly detailed note from your "Entertainment Therapy" MD, letting you off the hook from any obligations for a day...or five.

To whom it may concern,

Due to the Zombie Flu your employee will not be able to fulfill the scheduled commitment he/she has with you. Because of the severity of this condition I'm prescribing a heavy dose of Xbox One. He needs to destroy zombies.

After a thorough examination, I've concluded that the all-in-one entertainment system is the only cure for the aforementioned condition.

This treatment may take anywhere from 1-3 days to work and will require years of accumulating achievements thereafter. If the patient is disrupted with work, I will have to double the prescribed amount of Xbox One.

If used effectively, Xbox One can help relieve the patient's entertainment deprivation and will have an increased state of happiness at all times.

By popular demand, Stolidus Simulations has released Robot Vacuum Simulator 2013, the world's only simulation game that puts the player in the shoes of an automated vacuum cleaner. This sequel title to last year's Robot Vacuum Simulator 2012 now puts you in first-person control of the robot in a 3D landscape, where you must maneuver its sleek round body through a messy apartment to the background tune of smooth jazz. The only way this game could get better is if there was a DJ Roomba patch.
