The story is based on Cuphead and his brother. They were so bubbly and fun-loving. Everyone loves them so much. They live under the evil eye of Elder Kettle. Elder Kettle always warns the brothers against The Devil’s casino. But Cuphead and Mugman never listened to him. And one day, they enter the Devil’s casino and find themselves playing some stupid crappy game. They enjoyed in casino a lot as they found the game very interesting. Do you want to know what the game is about? The game is all about some stakes, a devil and the two brothers.
Every time the brothers win, there is a devil who appears and offers to raise the stakes. They always win those stakes. One day, after winning another stake, the Devil again appears and offers the brothers to raise the stakes again. If Cuphead and Mugman win another roll, they will get all the money as a gift that is present in the casino. Otherwise, the Devil will take their souls. Unfortunately, they both fail to do so. They got scared and started begging for mercy.
Agreement with the Devil
Then the Devil agreed to make a deal that if the brothers could collect the “Soul Contracts” for his runway debtors within 24 hours, he might spare them. For that, they have to visit Elder Kettle. As soon as possible, the brothers visit Elder Kettle, who gives the brothers a potion that allows them to fire blasts of energy from their fingers to fix their quest. But he warns them that the debtors may or may not return their soul contracts. The brothers didn’t give up and again traveled around Inkwell Isle, fighting against the debtors to get their contracts. When they enter the Island’s second sector, Elder Kettle gets shocked that the brothers are getting stronger and starts feeling that they are gonna win that task. He got worried about the brothers.
Twist in the story
And with a twist in the game. Another devil named King Dice is also a manager of the casino. He is a troublemaker. After trying their best, unfortunately, the brothers again lose a bet with the Devil. They again started begging him to leave them spare. After so many requests, finally, they got succeeded in manipulating the evil, destroying the stupid contract, and returning home. Now the brothers are free from the contract, and they don’t have to worry about anything that happened to them before.
