Cuphead Gets Turned Into an Utterly Delightful Fan-Made Stop-Motion Video
Davy Productions' brilliant Cuphead stop-motion fan video Chaotic Casino captures everything great about the shoot-em-up game.
Ever since Cuphead released in 2017, the lovingly-crafted animated indie game has provided a wealth of incredible fan creations. A lot of that can be attributed to its vintage animation style and art, and in the case of this stop-motion fan-made video, it’s even more incredible to see how its art translates to the real world.
Davy Productions (YouTube) released a fan-made Cuphead stop-motion video called “Chaotic Casino,” which imagines and adventure between the two anthropomorphic cups as they work their way through the Devil’s casino to reclaim their souls and fight a few familiar bosses from the game.
According to Davy Productions, he was inspired by Cuphead after playing it in 2017 and wanted to create an animation as a tribute to the game. After the release of the Cuphead construction sets by McFarlane Toys, he used those figures to create the stop-motion video, which took around four months to put together and edit.
Even Studio MDHR took the chance to recognize him for the incredible work on their official Twitter account this week:
Words can hardly describe our reaction when we saw this unbelievable video from @DavidGa44259875.

While Cuphead has been the source of several other fan creations and videos, we won’t have to wait too much longer to see Cuphead and Mugman continue their adventures with the upcoming Netflix animated series, The Cuphead Show. Animated in the same 1930s style as the game, the series was announced last summer by Netflix, though no other information on the show has arrived at this time.
Cuphead is available now on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and for some reason, Tesla cars. For a closer look at the game made in beautiful stop-motion, you can check out the video from Davy Productions below:
