Watched a little, before they started playing.  I don't know why, but the translator guy sipping a glass of wine cracked me up.  Iga says some stuff I didn't know about, like how SOTN's composer had her sister sing the music on the file select screen.

$28 for a copy of the game?  Would have jumped on for $15 in a heartbeat.

Steam sale it is.

IGA decided to go with 2.5D for this project for both financial and artistic reasons. All decisions in game development involve trade-offs, and for Bloodstained a 2.5D world built on Unreal Engine 4 was the right choice to balance development time, graphical fidelity, budget, and scope.

2.5D tho :-\

After Might No 9 I'm not sure I have enough faith in 2.5D Kickstarters anymore...

When I started reading the ks page they were at 39k, now it's 121. $28 is kind of high for just the game but still, more uh I guess we're supposed to call it Igavania now.

I'm sure it'll look fine and UE4 is a good engine.  What's more important is that it plays well, which hopefully it does.

I don't think its that low budget a game. The pitch video said that they have partners that'll provide funding, but they wanted to see what the community reaction would be first, hence the kickstarter.

Funding (and likely blowing through a couple of stretch goals) in a day is probably enough of a reaction.

Edit: Yup, only 10% of the game is backer-funded. The rest is done by publishers. https://twitter.com/personasama/status/597875118052745218

I honestly thought this would have problem meeting its goal. Those Castlevania games always seemed pretty damn niche to me. Pretty cool nevertheless.

Pretty sure the GBA games sold about 100k+ each.  It definitely has its fans and they are passionate.

I have no doubt in my mind that if Konami allowed him, Iga would've made Metroidvania's on the consoles (read: non-Nintendo handheld) beyond that multiplayer PSN/XBLA title.

The amount of money this thing's raked in so far reaching the basement via pledges isn't unlikely. If you really want it to happen that badly you know what to do.

Harmony of Despair during its heyday was a blast. Broken Somas everywhere that could glitch through everything with his souls all while spamming Muramasa and Claimh Solais +1, Shanoas grinding spells for all eternity cause fuck spell levels but beastly once they actually got anywhere, Alucards acting like they were as good as Soma with Valmanway +1, all the Belmonts pretending they were any good.  :rejoice

It was pretty much a pseudo MMO with all the grind that went on. Also, the PS3 version never got the final patch that actually fixed Maria, so its possible to buy a DLC character that's 100% useless.  :lol

Well, I wasn't going to buy Maria anyway. I just want to go through it due to it being a console Metroidvania. But if it's grind-city, I dunno...  :-\

Its grind-city only if you have the masochistic compulsion to get every single thing in the game/try to clear Hard mode/do DLC stages. Otherwise, it's stll a fun romp, though very obviously designed to be played with multiple people at once. It's pretty neat seeing how they ripped all the different character's mechanics straight out of their respective games, like Soma having a different soul for every single enemy, Shanoa absorbing spells that enemies cast and using her floaty anti-gravity rings, etc.

There's only like six maps/chapters in the base game, with like one or two extra maps that used to be DLC in the 360 version, two difficulties to each.

Edit: Bloodstained broke another stretch goal and is on course for hitting local co-op. Ain't stopping this train.
