Cuphead is now two years old and has sold five million copies across all platforms. To celebrate, Studio MDHR are planning "5 days of fun and giveaways" (opens in new tab) which begins with a sale of 20% off their game, no matter where you buy it from. Steam (opens in new tab), Humble (opens in new tab), GOG (opens in new tab), it's on sale everywhere. Except in Tesla cars, I guess, where you can get the first zone for free as part of software version 10.0 (opens in new tab), and play it while you're parked using a USB controller.

Cuphead's downloadable expansion The Delicious Last Course is due out next year (opens in new tab), and there's still a Netflix TV series (opens in new tab) on the way as well. Exciting times to be a cup or mug.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games (opens in new tab). He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun (opens in new tab), The Big Issue, GamesRadar (opens in new tab), Zam (opens in new tab), Glixel (opens in new tab), Five Out of Ten Magazine (opens in new tab), and Playboy.com (opens in new tab), whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
