Artist Reimagines Horror Movie Villains As Cuphead Style Bosses
Cuphead may have a reputation for inducing hair-pulling fits of frustration, but one aspect of the difficult platformer that people universally appreciate is its stunning presentation. The gorgeous game by developer Studio MDHR features a recreated cartoon style reminiscent of animation from the 1930s, and as such is full of visually distinct characters. Inspired by the old-school aesthetic, artist Matthew Hutchinson has recreated this Cuphead style and applied it to several of cinema’s most iconic villains.
Each of Hutchinson’s redesigned baddies look as though they’ve stepped straight out of Cuphead and are every bit as bizarre as the game’s actual villains. Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy gives a deadly wave, Texas Chainsaw‘s Leatherface revs his living chainsaw, and It‘s Pennywise is just plain unsettling. Other highlights include Chucky from Child’s Play, Audrey II (“Feed me, Seymour!”) from Little Shop of Horrors, and everyone’s favorite striped madman Beetlejuice. Check out the collection of Cuphead style creations below:
In other Cuphead news, Studio MDHR recently addressed a few of the game’s issues with some much needed bug fixes, removed a bogus iOS clone from the App Store, and there’s a nifty vinyl soundtrack of swingin’ tunes that released back in October. Cuphead is available to play on PC and Xbox One.
What do you think? Would these horror movie villains be a good fit for Cuphead, or is the game hard enough already?
