It’s been a long time since Cuphead has been announced, but the game is now finally in the hands of players all over the world. And it looks like the game is setting out to be a success, judging from the sales on Steam.
According to Steamspy, Cuphead is now owned by 124.540 players, a result obtained in less than 4 days of availability. Definitely an impressive number, considering the game is quite challenging.

Even though the game is now out, the Cuphead team isn’t yet done with the game. According to producer Maja Moldenhauer, the team is looking into adding online co-op to the game.
Chad and Jared grew up playing co-op together and they were like, OK this game HAS to be co-op. So, while it’s local couch coop for now, [we’re] looking into adding online at a later date.
Cuphead’s high difficulty level isn’t its only remarkable feature. Especially impressive is the art style, which replicates cartoons from the 30s.
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 hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.
Play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single player or local co-op) as you traverse strange worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves, and discover hidden secrets while you try to pay your debt back to the devil!
Cuphead is now available on PC ( Steam and Windows Store) and Xbox One in all regions. We will keep you updated on any new feature coming to the game as soon as possible, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
