Cuphead: The Admirable Lunacy of Hand-Animating a Video Game in 2017

Cuphead turns players into perfectionists. The long-awaited hand-drawn action game is full of cartoony boss battles that demand enough precision and focus that even a single hit of damage feels unacceptable.

Playing Cuphead is like a stage performance; every mistake is embarrassing, but the curtain call of each defeated boss is like nothing else.

The first thing you’ll notice about Cuphead is its art style: It looks almost exactly like the cartoon from the 1930s: its big-band score, the flapper-esque aesthetic, and small imperfections from hand animators slowly making copies of each character during the animation process.
