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."
