Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional cel animation (hand drawn & hand inked!), watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings. Play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single player or co-op) as you traverse strange Worlds, acquire new Weapons, learn powerful Super Moves, and discover hidden Secrets. Cuphead is all action, all the time.
- "With Cuphead, the aim is to evolve the genre by adding new features such as: super arts, infinite lives, a playable world map and hidden secrets. In addition to that, there will be refined controls, additional boss patterns on harder modes and balanced weapons to equip. The plan is 10-15 bosses per episode and end up with over 30 bosses."
- "When we were designing Cuphead, we wanted the game to be more reaction-based than just straight memorization. Great games like Contra III/Hard Corps mainly used repeating patterns that appeared in the same order every time - we feel this pattern formula tends to have less surprise on subsequent replays. On the other end of the spectrum, a game like Mega Man has a lot of proximity based patterns to mix things up – but this can let you take advantage of the boss by forcing the AI into the same series of attacks."
