Dark Souls as an early 20 Century cartoon is concurrently charming and terrifying.
When Cuphead first launched, probably the most direct comparability was Dark Souls, if Dark Souls was a platformer based mostly on early 20th Century cartoons. Which naturally raises one query: Why couldn’t or not it’s?
Enter 64 Bit, a YouTube video creation crew that has reimagined Dark Souls with spectacular and surprisingly devoted outcomes. Titled “Cupsouls”, this video renders the characters, environments, and executives of Dark Souls with basic animations and an upbeat soundtrack. The expertise walks a high quality line between charming and disturbing, but it surely all feels surprisingly playable – reminiscent of when the heroes flee a boulder of bones, or whereas watching the “You Died” countdown display.
I’d usually make a joke that now Cuphead wants a Dark Souls therapy, but it surely already captures that fairly successfully.
