Cool Video Game Based on Silent Cartoons

PostMon Oct 09, 2017 5:57 pm

This video game is pretty incredible and very well animated. It's called Cuphead. I truly hope this game succeeds. Wonderful to see a cartoon game set in the 1920's/1930's!

Enjoy! :D

It was promoted prominently by Conan O'Brien and Kate Upton a few months ago. Another game with a silent film "vibe" is the 2010 indie game "Limbo," which has no dialog, in black and white, with all animation done in silhouettes. It reminded of early silhouette animation like "The Adventures of Prince Achmed."

Gave it a go. The actual game play.... whew. Hard as hell. It isn't the challenge that saves it for me, and makes it fun. It's the artwork, the voice overs, the slang, the music and animation. And the sound effects!!! And the "sometimes yellow gloves" thing that is actually an intentional goof. It's all so cute! You truly feel like you're watching a cartoon of the era.

Great game!

I'm hoping this will make the trek to the Switch, so I can buy it for my son and then I can play it. :D
