Retro-type side-scrolling games win again! What the heck is the hype about Cuphead anyway?? Last year at E3 we gave a first impression when we had a taste of the game. Then last week PeekingBoo blasts through the levels on his DDR Pad, and not long thereafter Distortion2 beat the game in 27 minutes.
I'm not sure if it's the speedruns giving this game so much fame, or if the game is just that enjoyable, but here's a new fact for you. Cuphead has sold over 1 million copies, just shy of two weeks after its launch. Studio MDHR founders Chad and Jared Moldenhauer shared their feeling on this momentous occasion on their recent blog post:
Hello friends! Cuphead has only been out for two weeks and we never could have dreamed of the reception we’ve received from our amazing fans! Today, we wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your support and we’re excited to share that Cuphead has gone platinum with over 1 million units sold!
We have worked tirelessly over the past few years to deliver a game that remained true to our vision and we are both humbled and excited that so many people from around the world are playing Cuphead – it truly makes it all worth it.
Well, I guess I'm going to have to fall in with the crowd and get myself a copy of Cuphead to try out. Far be it from me as a game enthusiast to not try out a trending game such as this and not share my experience. What could go wrong?
