Cuphead Quickly Soars to Popularity
Cuphead first made news in 2014 at Microsoft’s E3 press conference. At that point in time, the game had already been in development for several years. Finally, in 2017, the indie game was finally released for the public on September 29. And despite having been out for only a couple of weeks, the game has already sold over 1 million copies since its launch.
There are many things that are attractive about this game and its distinct vintage style really sets it apart. The rubber hose animation and vintage art style really catches the eye. Not only that, the game is notoriously ultra-hard to beat with boss battles galore and enemies everywhere to fight.

Developers Chad and Jared Moldenhaur are thrilled to have the game out for the world and even more excited that it has received such popularity. “We have worked tirelessly over the past few years to deliver a game that remained true to our vision and we are both humbled and excited that so many people from around the world are playing Cuphead–it truly makes it all worth it.”
Cuphead was developed and published by StudioMDHR with help from Microsoft. It is currently only available for play on Xbox One and PC.
