"Cuphead" is an indie video game darling, having sold more than 3 million copies since September 2017.
Studio MDHR, the company behind the game, was originally founded by two brothers with no prior experience in game design.
"Cuphead" has been the darling of the indie video game world since its release in September 2017; the hand-drawn, home-developed game sold more than 3 million copies in its first year and received countless awards for its unique art, music, and charm.
Behind the indie success story, there's a close-knit family who was willing to sacrifice their time and careers to complete their passion project: "Cuphead" was created by brothers Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, and Chad's wife Marija Moldenhauer is a producer and artist for the game.

Jared, Marija, and Chan Moldenhauer of Studio MDHR worked on "Cuphead" and coordinated staff from their Ontario homes.
