Cuphead has become something of a phenomenon with gamers everywhere with its hand-drawn animation and much more. It’s so popular, in fact, that TheDominoKing has taken to YouTube with his tribute. Using nearly 23,000 dominoes, he has created an amazing image of the characters and some of the iconic lines from the game.
Here’s what TheDominoKing had to say:
This is easily one of my favorite games to come out this year, and after receiving many requests here it is: Cuphead & Mugman In Dominoes!
Overall this video consisted of 22,734 Dominoes and took around 5 days of work. I originally wanted to make a larger video consisting of multiple characters from the game but ultimately decided to only make the protagonists in dominoes.
The game is a classic run and gun action title 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 the titular character 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!
