- Full Description
Get transported back to the golden age of 1930s animation with an art book celebrating the acclaimed "run & gun" game*, Cuphead! Gaming tie-in aside, this is like looking closely at a new, undiscovered Max Fleisher or Ub Iwerks (both are noted as direct inspiration) cartoon from the 1930s. Relive the most cherished and challenging moments of Cuphead and Mugman's adventure to reclaim their souls from The Devil! See the early concepts and production work creating of Cuphead's characters, bosses, stages and more, including never-before-seen content from the upcoming downloadable add-ons.
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. They have perfectly captured that vintage animation feel, from the characters to the backgrounds.
Take a gander at the game's traditional hand-drawn frame-by-frame animation. Each page of this curated collection of artwork is designed to capture the vintage look and feel of the 1930's. Dark Horse Books and Studio MDHR present The Art of Cuphead!
*Run & gun video games, also known as run & gun shooters, are a sub-genre of shoot 'em ups, particularly side-scrolling shooter video games, in which the player generally controls a lone gunman as they travel on foot through levels, defeating enemies.
