Prepare your keisters! IGL Podcast returns to lob infinite projectiles at a totally new season. In their first episode back, hosts Justin and Kyle introduce brand noob team member, Josie and an all new Hollywood Redux studio space and IGL set.
In addition to getting to know Josie, the team talks what’s been going on in the world of gaming since we last checked in with them. Spoilers: Justin talks about VR…plus this weird game Cuphead gets mentioned a lot…
What’s Cuphead? More info below:
Cuphead is a run and gun indie video game developed and published by StudioMDHR. Play as the title character Cuphead along with his brother, Mugman, in one and two player fights with a series of bosses in order to repay a debt to the devil.
Cuphead’s gameplay is based on continuous boss fights, with an interspersed run and gun levels. The game also includes role-playing elements, and a branching level sequence. Cuphead has infinite lives, maintaining all equipment between deaths.
Player characters utilize a parry attack that can be used on certain objects marked in pink, to various effects; the most important of them being increasing a “super meter” that enables more powerful attacks.
After completing a level, the player receives a grade based on their performance through factors such as time taken to defeat a boss, damage taken/avoided, and number of parried attacks.
The levels are accessible through a top-down perspective overworld with its own secret areas. The game also has a two-player local cooperative mode that allows another player to play as Mugman
