Cuphead’s release is just around the corner. The game will come in less than two days and all I want to know about it is how the Parry system works. However, the game developers decided to talk about the future plans for the game. With a heavily requested feature coming to the game soon enough.
During an interview with Fandom. The game’s producer Maja Moldenhauer stated that the team is looking into adding online co-op to the game in the future. “Chad and Jared grew up playing co-op together and they were like, OK this game HAS to be co-op.” Said Moldenhauer. “So, while its local couch coop for now, [we’re] looking into adding online at a later date.”
We also got some insight about the game’s development cycle. Studio MDHR grew up as much as the game did. “It was just going to be 8 bosses, a Megaman-style select screen, no overworld, no interactive NPCS, nothing like that.” Explains Moldenhauer. “But as our fanbase grew, we had the courage to jump in a little bit deeper. We thought: you know what? This is our one shot let’s make this a full game and not just a little sampler demo.”
The producer also talks about the tough journey the team had to face. “You can’t fully grasp how much goes into making a video game just by being a fan,” she says. “We didn’t really know what went into this! I have an insane amount of respect for every single person that’s in this industry.”
The people at the studio faced a tough challenge from beginning to end. Chad and Jared Moldenhauer were video game maniacs. And they wanted to make a video game together. And while the dream came cut short because of real life issues. The soon-to-be developers never gave up on the dream, and it certainly paid off.
