1930s Style Animation + Jazz Music = Cuphead Video Game

cuphead-videogame01

I rarely post anything video game related but this one, being developed by Studio MDHR, may interest some of you animators out there! Cuphead is an action game featuring fantastic 1930s style cel animations (hand drawn and hand inked), with watercolour backgrounds, and original jazz music. It looks so fun to play!

Players control two characters, Cuphead and Mugman, who after losing a dice roll with the devil, are forced to do his bidding. The game is slated for release as an XBOX and PC title sometime in 2016. Watch the preview video of the game below!
