    Can someone up to date with Castlevania stuff explain this to me? As a kid I loved SotN back in the day then went on to play a good few of the handheld Vanias that came out across the years, but as an adult I've not kept in touch. I was under the impression that Castlevania games were still a common and frequent thing though, I guess I'm wrong? Or had they just stopped doing that type of gameplay and done 3D games instead?

    I'm a sucker for any game similar to SotN with double jump and pretty art style.

    Last true castlevania game true as in not counting Lords of Shadow or spinoffs was Order of Ecclesia on DS in 2008. So its been a pretty long time since we have had a metroidvania style game. If you wanna go even further back we haven't had a true vania game on a console since Symphony of the night... While first Lords of Shadow was good it was more gothic God of war then a castlevania game.

    Right after Symphony the big push for 3d hit the game industry. The metroidvania style of game fell out of favor. Companies wanted to avoid 2d at all costs and 3d metroidvania game wouldn't be time/resource possible for many years. Castlevania had some really rocky 3d outings and Metriod even fell off the face of the earth till Prime came out. Industry trend, consumer tastes and companies underestimating their IPs pushed castlevania (and Metriod ) into the niche status the now hold.

    order of ecclesia was the last one to come out and that was what, 2008 or so? not counting the PSN/XBL game, which was neat but not exactly a traditional take (and i'm pretty sure rather expensive to actually get the full game, as most of it was released as DLC).

    i've never backed a KS before, but i think i might finally give in for this one.

    Order of Ecclesia was amazing. Going to back this. SOTN was one of my fav games coming up and I loved the DS games as well

    I can't decide which tier I want other than wishing I had enough money to piss away for the 2500 tier.

    The stretch goal for hardcover art book was met so I'll probably drop 150 for that. I'm a sucker for hardcover books in general and the art for this game looks amazing.

    Really wish this was like Super Castlevania 4 rather than SOTN

    I can't understand this logic, but it wouldn't be happening anyways since IGA pretty much only did the 2D Metroidvania style except for the one 3D whipvania game on PS2

    man I wish I had $3000 to spare, or $1500. either one of those would be awesome. I want my pet snake in this game!

    holding off for a sec while I decide if I want to do $100 or $150 tiers. or maybe I'll just do $28 because clearly they're doing quite well regardless... nah, I want that physical copy at least.

    edit: just watched the intro video. that was actually really moving. fuck it, here's my $100 iga. first time I have EVER backed anything on kickstarter. good show. good show, indeed.

    decided on $100 because a) my name in the credits! :D and b) I have so many art books from games that I never look at, let's be real.

    Putting in for $150 once my paycheck gets here on Friday. It's a bit disappointing that they weren't able to get Ayami Kojima on board for the artwork, but at least they tried. Maybe if this does well enough to spawn a sequel or two she'd be available then?

    You aren't charged until the kickstarter ends if you want to go ahead now.

    In that case, 250 for tonight instead of waiting for Friday for me

    "Damnit Belmont how many hearts do you have?!"

    I wish Kajeto still made videos. His Monster Hunter Freedom Unite videos were pretty hilarious as well. Stretch goal should be a humor cameo with him as the voice of the big bad.

    Page hasn't updated, but they hit speed run stretch goal.

    I did the $60 pledge because I want the physical copy, but not as concerned with the random knickknacks.
