    You don't have to beat the game to get this book, but helps playing the game for awhile. With that said, the game itself is eye-candy. It's a love letter to 1930s rubber hose cartoons and a love letter to several games from the 80s. The art of this game really helps. It's fun to look at who you might fight next (that is if you get past the first level). In a way, this book gives you some history of cartoons too. If you enjoy the game, this is worth owning.

    I'm a giant fan of the video game, Cuphead: the art style, music, character design, plot, and everything about it. This was a great resource for the beautiful artwork and even exciting material that didn't make it into the video game. I'm glad I could read a free digital copy instead of clunking around a probably expensive hardback. I highly recommend for fans of the game or if you just like looking at pretty things.

    The Art of Cuphead es todo lo que podría pedir de un artbook y más. El libro está organizado en secciones, cada una correspondiente a una isla del juego y sus respectivos habitantes.

El libro está organizado en secciones, cada una correspondiente a una isla del juego y sus respectivos habitantes. El comentario es breve pero preciso, detallando en pocas palabras el porque de cada decisión creativa. Algo que ya casi no se ve en los artbooks recientes son sketches y diseños previos. Aquí los hay por docenas: los protagonistas, los jefes y hasta los NPC tienen páginas dedicadas al proceso que tomó llegar a la forma final. Uno podría pasar horas admirando cada uno de los dibujos. Hay también un vistazo al proceso "detrás de cámaras", contado con claridad y con la extensión justa para que la lectura no se haga pesada. Estoy realmente contento con este libro que fácilmente se ha convertido en uno de mis preferidos y ocupa lugar especial en mi librero. Muchas, muchas gracias a mi gran amigo César por tan increíble regalo.

    Per quanto il mio tempo dedicato ai videogiochi sia drasticamente calato negli anni, cerco comunque di ritagliarne un po’ per giocare a titoli che stimolano la mia curiosità, soprattutto dal punto di vista artistico, e Cuphead è stato uno dei giochi che mi ha colpito di più nella mia vita di videogiocatore. L’ispirazione ai cartoni animati anni 30 e ai videogame di anni 80 e 90 hanno generato questo run&gun ostico e geniale.

L’artbook è una giusta lettura di accompagnamento grazie al suo approfondimento nelle tecniche utilizzate per la creazione di personaggi, boss, sfondi, colonna sonora ecc. Must have per chiunque abbia apprezzato Cuphead.

    The game is impossible. But the art is spectacular. You don't even need to play the game to enjoy this. All you need is an appreciation for old-school animation and some nostalgia for 1930s and '40s era animated classics. The game is impossible. But the art is spectacular.

    The design of this game masterfully mimics classic cartoons from the 1930s and 40s by Disney, Warner Bros. and Fleischer, combining that aesthetic with classic platformer video games. The care put into every detail from backgrounds to bosses, maps to monsters, is amazing. The art is gorgeous, brilliantly bringing to life the kooky, crazy antics of the different characters. On top of that, the sheer variety on display is dizzying.

On top of that, the sheer variety on display is dizzying. This team clearly has a genuine affection for this style and it shows in every design. There’s also plenty of behind-the-scenes stuff here, as well as commentary about game design. It’s a true feast on many levels. When was the last time you heard someone reference Cab Calloway and Gunstar Heroes in the same breath? Never, that’s when. The only thing lacking is discussion of the music, which is integral to the experience, and the game music is pitch perfect. Here’s the game itself in action: https://youtu.be/QF9tzn7UUIo

    This art book is incredible. It goes through all the Isles in the game and all the bosses and run and guns as well as NPCs. Each one goes into one or two film references, who the animator was, what went into the background painting or model and what the design influences were. That repeats for all the Isles sections and then it moves into what didn't fit that format. This includes inking, typography and some of the special things done for the opening book, blueprints and tutorial. Hands off to t This art book is incredible.

If I was suggesting improvements I would've liked to have seen some team photos and maybe an exit outro as it ends abruptly after a section on DLC.

    These absolute madlads. They did it! They hand-drew, inked, and animated a 1930s video game to such a high quality that it's hard to summarize. My one takeaway from this? The animators and designers KNEW THEIR REFERENCES. Every single monster, detail, or background had a 1937 cartoon or 1991 SEGA Genesis game that they were basing it on. Absolute madlad details. I am so proud that this game exists and that the art book shares so much of the process and early drafts of characters. This is super i These absolute madlads. They did it!

This is super inspirational if I ever want to write about something in this era/aesthetic. Which, I probably will.

    Cuphead recently came to my car (Tesla) and it’s taken the family by storm. This book does a great job breaking down the game’s beautiful art and influences and has allowed me to talk about how inspiration works and introduce cartoons and music from the 30’s to my kids (6 & 4) along the way. There are quite a few typos throughout which are made worse by the author’s love of using superfluously obscure/lengthy words.

    Feel like I'm giving far too many 5-stars for this month, but this really is what game art books should aspire to be. Lots and lots of actually scanned-in sketches, backgrounds, thoughtful descriptions and "work in progress" works instead of shiny promo pictures. I'm glad I picked this up on a whim.

    An amazing behind-the-scenes look at my favourite game! The detail, provision, creativity, inventiveness and staggering amount of passion that went into this game is legendary! Beautifully written with amazing photos, sketches and paintings gives the reader a unique insight into the world of Cuphead and the lasting impact it has and will continue to have. This is a must-read!

    The Cuphead art book is a surprisingly intriguing read. Unlike most art books which are just page-for-page galleries with brief descriptions (fair enough), the Cuphead one really goes in-depth about the inspirations and production. Definitely get your mitts on it, even if you might not be the biggest fan of the game itself but love the art style.

    Fantastic Artbook with really nice spreads displaying some of the best videogame art in modern history. Very interesting tidbits on the games creation and process from its creators. An inspiring piece for any Cuphead fan. Hats off to their creative team.

    Highly recommend this book to anyone who liked or loved the game. As soon as I started the game it instantly became one of my favorites, and this book enriches the entire experience with beautiful illustrations and explanations of every character.

    I loved the book! I didn’t even realize that there were hidden bosses in the game! I loved reading about the inspirations they the game drew from. I already loved the game, but this book made me love it even more. If you are a fan of the game, then you need this book in your life.
