And now they’re fighting for their lives on a mission fraught with dread. and welcome.. “And if they proceed, but don’t succeed…” “And if they proceed, but don’t succeed…” ..finally “And if they proceed, but don’t succeed…” to Cuphead! “And if they proceed, but don’t succeed…” “And if they proceed, but don’t succeed…” Aw, it’s so good! Aw, it’s so good!
“Well…” “Well…” “The Devil will take THEIR HEADS! :D” I’ve been waiting for this game for so long, a lot of us have. Look at this guys ever since they first showed off this game… everybody has been excited for it, and it looks phenomenal.
I always knew the art style was gonna be good because we-we’ve seen it a bunch… and we’ve kind of seen the game in action and trailers and that, but I haven’t paid attention to anything from the game for… I’d say about a year. I-I look up news about it, but I haven’t looked at any trailers or footage or anything… I haven’t seen anything of the-the full released game now that it’s actually out, because I wanted to surprise myself with it.
I didn’t know the soundtrack was gonna be this good… which is also nice because I got the deluxe edition vinyl. So…now I’m really excited to listen to that! I just got the deluxe vinyl because I really like the art of it.
Little did I know the music was actually gonna be phenomenal. Okay, I just love barbershop quartets. They’re really good, but if you don’t know what this game is, this is a game they… announced a while ago and it’s like a… a side-scrolling game where you shoot things from your fingers and kill bosses and whatever.
It was supposed to be a boss rush game. The original idea for the game was just fighting bosses… I think, like a bullet hell game..?
But then after a while people liked the idea of the game so much that they wanted a full game, …so they took a really long time to release the game because they were building actual… levels to go through and more enemies and more scenarios and… like…just the aesthetic alone. It’s the really really old like.. ..Disney style the really really old cartoony style and they.. nailed it! Like, this is as close to that style you’re ever ever gonna get in a game… …and I can’t believe just how good it looks, but let’s get in and actually play the game instead of me just talking about it. Even theoptions menu looks amazing~! …Resolution…? No!
All right, who cares?! I don’t know what’s going on. Let’s just get into the game. I just wanna play. *smol dance break* “..Oh my God!” “Look at this!
Once upon a time in a magical place called Inkwell Isle there were two brothers named Cuphead and Mugman.” “They lived without a care under the watchful eye of the wise Elder Kettle.” “One day the two boys wandered far from home,” “and despite the Elder Kettle’s many warnings, ended up on the wrong side of the tracks…” “and into the Devil’s Casino.” “Inside, Cuphead and Mugman soon found themselves on a winning streak at the Craps table.”
“Hot dawg!” exclaimed King Dice, the casino’s sleazy manager.” “These fellas can’t lose!” “Nice run, boys,” laughed a newcomer. The brothers gasped. It with the casino’s owner – the Devil himself!”
“Now, how about we raise the stakes?” he suggested with a toothy grin.” *referring to the Devil* “…It’s my brother.” “Win one more roll, and all the loot in my casino is yours!”
the Devil boomed.” “But if you lose, I’ll have your souls! “Deal?”
“Cuphead, blinded by easy riches, nodded and grabbed the dice for a throw.” “Good gosh, Cuphead, no,” cried Mugman, for he understood the danger, but it was too late.” “Snake eyes!”
laughed the Devil while slamming the floor. “You lose!” “The brothers trembled in fear as he loomed over them. “Now, how about those souls?” “The brothers pleaded for their very lives.
“Th-there must be another w-way to repay you,” Mugman stammered. “Yes, p-please, mister!” Cuphead added “Hmm perhaps there is,” the Devil snickered, pulling out a parchment “I have a here a list of my runaway debtors. Collect their souls for me, and I just might pardon you two mugs.” “Now get going!”
the Devil roared, kicking the boys out the most– out most rudely “You have till midnight tomorrow to collect every one of those souls! Otherwise, I’ll be the one collecting yours!” Cuphead and Mugman were terribly frightened and ran away as fast as they could “C’mon, Mug!” panted Cuphead. “We have to find the Elder Kettle.
He’ll know what to do!” I am so into this It’s crazy how much they make it appear like it’s an old screen. Like an old CRT monitor What a fine pickle you boys have gotten yourself into.
I know you don’t want to be pawns of the devil! But if you refuse, I can’t bear to imagine your fates You must play along for now Collect those contracts, and you’d best be ready for some nasty business your debtor friends won’t be very friendly once you confront them In fact, I expect they’ll transform into terrible beasts!
