Groundbreaking independent video game Cuphead has been something of a phenomenon. Designed to reflect the early years of animation, and with notoriously difficult challenges – Cuphead offered games a blend of modern and vintage aesthetics. It’s been praised for it’s fantastic art design – which often shows how creepy some of the older cartoons were.
Artist Matthew Hutchinson was inspired by the game’s visuals and created this fantastic series of illustrations showing what horror villains might look like in the world of the game. He shared a series of drawing on Imgur which place characters like Freddy Krueger, Pennywise and Leatherface into the world of Cuphead. Check out these great designs below!
