    Awesome. The game absolutely deserves it. This is how I imagined that platformers would evolve.


    No. Thank you!

  • Uncle Ocelot

    This makes me extremely pleased.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    great, over a million people think problematic and non inclusive gameplay is fun

  • NukeA6

    It’s because of Dark Souls that games like this can sell millions. Like Solaire used to say, “Praise the Sun!”

  • UnpluggedBeta

    Exactly; they are literally hitler for liking this game, aren’t they? I can’t even.

  • popehentai

    Amazing, given how “exclusionary” and “elitist” it is….. right?


    Lot of us have been enjoying bone-crushingly difficult games long before Souls. (That’s not to say that Cuphead is bone-crushingly difficult). Dark Souls has definitely made very challenging games more mainstream. But let’s be fair, Cuphead’s artistic direction probably played more into its popularity than its core gameplay. Cave style shooters that are pretty in their own way, but nowhere near as eye-poppingly unique as Cuphead, may as well not exist when it comes to the general gaming audience.

    No one is excluded from trying, that’s the magic of videogames.

    Oh my god I can just picture people calling every hard 2D game “The Cuphead of X”

  • Zero Kurapika

    So where they able to play their mortage or what ?

    Took me like 5 days to beat. It was pretty fun.

    While NieR Automata is still my Game of the Year (and potentially all time), this comes as a close second.
    Glad to see it selling so well even after all the game journos got triggered by it.

    Don’t Deal With The Devil

    Support this game and games like it, not loot crate riddled garbage the “AAA” sector is shitting out.

    The Cuphead of action RPGs

  • Sam XXX

    Did I miss something? :D

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Oh nothing really, just the fact that the already toxic cesspool known as the “gaming community” seems to operate on this capitalistic and patriarchal notion that inexperienced gamers need to “git good” at challenging games.

  • Sam XXX

    My sarcasm meter is a bit off so..

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Wow you Gaters are really dense.

  • Sam XXX

    Teaspoon of neutronstar.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Wow, and a racist too? Pfft typical white male gamers
