It's completely hand drawn, each figure and each animation, the backgrounds are also water color paintings.

I played it at e3 2016 for 15-some minutes and it's feels like a solid platformer. This game won't hold your hand though, it's like old school Mega man difficulty. The arts / graphics is definitely a sight for sore eyes; it's really like you're playing / interacting with a 30s cartoon.

That's my 2 cents.

I'm saying due to the fact of how long hand drawing and painting all the assets for the game can take, I'm not surprised it's taken longer then expect to ship. It's not Disney with tons of people producing art for a movie.

I honestly have no idea how this thing was shown off before the Xbox One launched and it's taken this long for a platformer download only.

And here's an article apologizing about it coming out in 2016, http://studiomdhr.com/cuphead-com...ne-and-pc/

Something just doesn't seem right about the whole thing, I would wait for reviews.

Lol, this gets hidden now, I guess why question a 4 year development cycle for a 20 dollar download only game or risk getting downvoted into silence.

From what I remember reading it was initially just a boss rush platformer and they said you need to add levels so that added more time, but yeah at this point this is a wait for reviews and then maybe on sale

I agree it's nice looking, but just stating the method in which the game is built doesn't really give me more confidence that it's going to play well.

Definitely makes me suspicious, but I really want it to be great.

From my memory, this is a first-time home from a new game studio. Hopefully they just really polished it up after such early exposure.
