Cuphead, a forthcoming run-and-gun adventure game from Studio MDHR, was previewed at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo back in June. The game features beautiful 1930s style-animation throughout, and stars an anthropomorphic cup and coffee mug.
The game is set to be released in 2015 on the Steam Network and XBOX One. It’s set to be a trilogy, and the geeks over at Kill Screen Daily have some recent info on its development:
* These bosses will be accessible via an old-timey, top-down action-RPG-style world map. Imagine an old Zelda game with a 1930s flair, and Link with a cup for his head. There is talk of secrets and side-quests on this world map.
* They’re about 40% done with the game’s art, and, because they design mechanics from art, they’ve got slightly less than that done design-wise. The game got started in 2010. So. Hold tight, is what I’m getting at.
Here’s another teaser video from Studio MDHR:
This only tangentially has something to do with coffee, but hey, Cuphead looks fucking awesome. It’s the first video game starring a coffee mug (at least we’re pretty sure), and isn’t that something? Why wouldn’t we report about this?
Admittedly, no one has clarified whether Cuphead and Mugman are actually coffee cups/mugs. They could theoretically contain anything: holy water, cascara, a splash of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. But no one has said they *aren’t* coffee vessels, either. So we’re just going to assume.
