Cuphead Fan Makes His Own Cartoon

Cuphead, a video game that looks like a cartoon, now has a cartoon based on the video game, courtesy of fan and animator hotdiggedydemon.

It’s more Ren & Stimpy than Max Fleischer, I know, but I guess that’s the point. If the game draws on other animation for its inspiration, no reason a fan-made cartoon can’t make the same jump.

Luke Plunkett is a Senior Editor based in Canberra, Australia. He has written a book on cosplay, designed a game about airplanes, and also runs cosplay.kotaku.com.

DISCUSSION

I mean it’s cool that this guy did this, but why would you take a game based on one very specific style of cartoon, which takes just about all of its identity and charm from that cartoon genre, and make out of it a cartoon of a completely different style?
