Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Post by JenovaPX » Thu May 21, 2015 10:28 am

So Igavania is back and looking pretty gooseberry fool hype. Igarashi is the man who brought us some of the best Castlevania games we've seen and really hammered home what a Metroidvania game should be with exploration porn through Dracula's domain. Already blowing through it's kickstarter goal and plenty of stretch goals here where to go:

Bloodstained Kickstarter

Currently only planned for Steam, PS4 and XBOne but with an allusion to a WiiU or handheld release at some point if enough money's raised. Everyone needs to give Iga their energy.

Completely separate from all his other games (obviously) but looking to incorporate everything he's learned and with the promise, if enough money's raised, of his largest map ever. This is the thread to discuss all things Iga, Bloodstained and by extension Castlevania classics simply because it certainly doesn't seem fitting to talk about it in Konami. Aside from of course the "gooseberry fool Konami" tier where Hayter is voicing Gebel.

Igavania sales pitch done right

Surprised nobody had made this thread already. In fact, I was gonna do it when it was first announced. Must have gotten preoccupied with something else lol.

Game sounds amazing, and I've made sure to pledge to it already. Only the $28 tier for a Steam copy, but that'll do me. Got a message this morning saying how they'd looked at the paypal donations too and realised they'd reached all their main stretch goals now! So now we just have some "mini" ones which are for the music for the retro levels. And if it gets to $3 million, something else, but they haven't revealed it yet.

Between this and Yooka-Laylee, Kickstarter has been awesome for games lately. There is another one I would like to donate to but can't currently afford to lol. Might do just before its up.

If I had $10,000 I'd want to adventure with Iga. Sadly I don't so settling for $150 for the artbook and physical copy so my Iga adventures will have to wait, they really do have some nice rewards up there though.

Went to work, came back and some kind soul (souls) added $17,000 so we now only need $493,000 for the U version 8-) edit: 491,000 .. good kickstarters move fast.

Incase you still thought that the $3M stretch wasn't to create a U version and was perhaps another intricate castle design or something ..

Someone increased the brightness on the image and measured it up against one we already know:

It needs to get the achievement unlocks to open the basement if we want to get that. I'd like to see the Silly Cheat Codes one, but I dunno if it'd get that far

It should reach the achievements needed, I mean we're almost halfway to maxing out the achievements and there's no shortage of fan support for the game

So we've hit $2.75 mil (after adding the paypal money) now with just a couple of achievements needed to unlock the basement/already unlocked if an update's pending. Insanely close to the $3mil mark for a WiiU copy so if you've been holding off, unsure if it'll hit or not, now seems like a solid time to push for that stretch goal.

New Monday update!

And thanks to all the backers’ hard work, we’ve finally reached 30 backer achievements and unlocked the Basement Key! This will allow us to take our first steps into the basement and start reaching those stretch goals.

Speaking of stretch goals–we’ve also just hit the $2.75 million mark! You’ve now signed IGA up for building his biggest castle ever. This stretch goal achievement also reveals the next stretch goal down. Updated graphics coming soon!

Y'know, I'm fine with them stopping now. I can't imagine there will be a huge number of other things they can put in and I'd quite like it to be finished at some time.

It really probably couldn't, not for the scale they've spoken about and all the extras they keep wanting in they've said before will probably shift the date back to mid-late 2017. The WiiU version absolutely won't be out before 2017.

Remember there's also the $50,000 from Paypal donations not included in that figure so it's certainly all the closer. Almost definitely going to hit it in the final rush in a couple of weeks.

$20k away from a WiiU version, I'm kind of amazed it's still growing so fast

EDIT: $3mil mark has been hit, you're getting your WiiU version folks. $3mil with 13 days left, pretty gooseberry fool insane

EDIT 2: 2 new stretch goals revealed, asynchronous online multiplayer (it's now basically just Dark Souls) and a Vita port.

As far as I know, the backer bonuses count for WiiU as well as Vita if it gets that far
