2017 was a great year for StudioMDHR with the release of Cuphead. The game has been widely praised by critics and fans for its unique hand-drawn art style reminiscent of the golden age of animation. Add in some pretty amazing gameplay and you have the makings of a Game of the Year. That’s pretty amazing stuff for an indie studio!
StudioMDHR has a brief post on its site to announce that the game has sold over two million copies to earn “double platinum” status.
“Hello friends! Much to our shock and amazement, we can announce that Cuphead has now sold over 2 million copies across all platforms. Even in our wildest dreams, we never thought our crazy little characters would be embraced by this many fans from around the world and we are continuously humbled by your support.
So to everyone who has drawn fan art, composed memes, performed songs, conquered challenge runs, streamed their playthrough, or just played Cuphead and had a good time, we love and appreciate all of you from the bottom of our hearts.
Thanks to the best fans in the world and here’s to a joyful 2018!”
Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game 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 Cuphead 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!
