Game Informer has posted some demo footage of Cuphead, the upcoming indie platformer styled after 1930s cartoons. The art style is amazing-- as someone who grew up watching all the Looney Tunes and older cartoons I could get my hands on, this looks like tight, difficult, and satisfying gameplay wrapped up in charming bit of nostalgia.

The game is coming in a few weeks on September 29 to Xbox One and PC.

I wonder if the you can turn off the "fuzz" effect? It's not really a fuzz, kind of a blur / 30mm scratches effect?

They've really nailed the style of the game though but i've never looked at it and wanted to play it. Watch it sure, but maybe this is one of those games you have to try?

Are you getting it on PC?

Yep, I'm totally getting it on PC. I've been wanting to play it since the first E3 trailer a couple years back. The levels are done interestingly, with platforming segments and bosses separately, but the gameplay reminds me of some hybrid of Mega Man and a Metal Slug/Contra type of game.

That comparison seems apt. With that it's so unique that I really want to try it before I get it.
