Historic first time for a video game the one recorded by Cuphead, whose soundtrack became the first to reach number one in the Billboard Jazz ranking, further testimony to the excellence of the work carried out by the composer Kristofer Maddigan, as well as the goodness of the game in itself.
It is clear now that the game has exceeded the boundaries of the videogame medium, given that in addition to the fact that the soundtrack is in fact appreciated even by those unfamiliar with the game, there is also an animated series dedicated to Cuphead, confirming to be in a period of great popularity.
What makes Cuphead so special is its artistic direction, definitely inspired by the first animated cartoons of the 1930s like Betty Boop, Popeye, and Disney’s Silly Symphonies, and it is noted in the watercolor line of the drawings, rigorously handmade, which make up the video game.
But Cuphead wouldn’t be the same without music, to be precise, and the jazz atmosphere that accompanies it and transports the player in those years when the genre was so popular, I’m always in the right place and make the difficult bosses even more interesting battle of which the video game is composed.
As mentioned, this is the first time that a videogame has reached the first position of this ranking, while in the past some other titles, such as The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and Persona 5, managed to place themselves on the chart.
