Cuphead game available on Windows 10, Steam and Xbox One
Cuphead, a retro-looking game from Indie Developer Studio MDHR was just released for Windows 10, Xbox One and Steam. The game was originally presented during Microsoft’s E3 conference back in 2014.
The visuals and audio were created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional cel animation (hand-drawn and hand inked!), watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.
You are able to play as a Cuphead or a Mugman, in a single player or a local co-op mode. In addition, you can explore strange worlds, use super moves, collect new weapons and discover hidden secrets.
The developer got inspiration for making this game with equally popular titles like Gunstar Heroes, Contra III, Super Mario World, Street Fighter III and Thunderforce series. Cuphead also supports the local multiplayer game so you can enjoy it with your friends.
The price for this game is only $19.99 considering that it’s eligible for Xbox Play Anywhere when bought from the Windows Store.
