I have yet to play Cuphead, but the aesthetic of the game is right down my alley. For a deeper look at the art of the game, Dark Horse Comics has announced the upcoming release of The Art of Cuphead.
Get transported back to the golden age of 1930s animation with an art book celebrating the acclaimed run & gun platformer, Cuphead! Each page of this curated collection of artwork is designed to capture the vintage look and feel of the Thirties. Take a gander at the game’s traditional hand-drawn frame-by-frame animation. Peek at the early concepts, production work, and early ideas that went into the making of Cuphead’s characters, bosses, stages and more. Relive the most cherished and challenging moments of Cuphead and Mugman’s adventure to reclaim their souls from The Devil, all in a way you’ve never seen before! Guided by personal insights from game directors Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, take a one-of-a-kind trip through the Inkwell Isles and discover an all-new appreciation for Cuphead’s animation style and challenging retro gameplay.
The Art of Cuphead will arrive on October 22, 2019, with a cover price of $29.99.
