Eugh, not a Kickstarter.
I'm already getting flashbacks of Might No. 9 and that whole shitstorm.
Seriously, at least give us a Android and Wii U version. It's a freggin 2D game.
$60 dollars for a physical copy is expensive as hell...
I'm not a big Castlevania fan but nothing fills me with more joy than the fact that devs like this guy and the guys that left rare and are making Yooka-Laylee, are able to finally give their dedicated fans the games that the actual previous companies just didn't freakin think to put out.
I'll back it just to support it, I'm all for developers making what the people want and not the companies making what they "think" we want.
GIVE ME 3DS & VITA PORT!
*shows his neck*
GET ALL THE MONEY BLOOD YOU NEED FOR THE PORT!
The protagonist reminds me of Shanoa from Order of Ecclesia, which is awesome. I'm just a bit disappointed that it is a home-console only game. For some reason, I always found 2D side-scroller to be more enjoyable in handhelds than in home-consoles.
I usually get my games digitally but for the exclusive in-game items I went ahead and funded $60
Yooka-Laylee too. This is an exciting method. Does it have its problems? Sure. So does in house funding.
Fucking bullshit. If they can't make this 2.5D game run on a WiiU, they can't develop games.
You do it, then? Don't come off talking like you know what's involved.
Well, for every Mighty No. 9, there's a Shovel Knight, right?
The most childish comeback ever. You don't have to be a video game developer to look at Bayonetta 2 and the concept art / mockup for this 2D game, and call bullshit that the WiiU won't be powerful enough.
Generally my issue is that all these "influential" people are moving to Kickstarter when if the idea really was valid they could easily find an investor for it.
I mean no name developers like Supergiant were able to get funded for amazing games like Bastion and Transistor, goddamn Phil Fish was able to get funding for Fez, why can't someone who has "Made fucking Castlevania" or "Made fucking Megaman" or "Made fucking Banjo Kazooie" on their resume get investors for their next game?
I feel like they're just cheap and lazy. Through Kickstarter, they can get all this money, and if things don't pan out, they owe nothing. They can take as long as they want, do whatever they want, and have no worries of risk vs. reward.
I'm sure you read the last sentence, " That said, we've heard legends about a remarkable treasure hidden in the castle basement..."
Basically I interpret that as, "If the main version is successful, there is a good chance for porting it to nintendo systems". Maybe they even might do a spinoff title. Given that it's already about 60% funded in less than a few hours, Id say that's pretty likely!
I dunno about the Wii U but the PS4 and XBO have a similar hardware structure to that of a PC so this isn't really surprising that even Linux gets a port.
Instead of cursing hope for a Wii U stretch goal.
sarkwalvein recycling his own posts since... forever.
Yeah, I can buy that they're talking about the different hardware structure. The way it was worded made me think they were saying that they wouldn't be able to make such a beautiful game if it had to work on a nintendo console as well.
At first I didn't get that sentense, and thought they meant there'd be an old in-game ninendo console inside a hidden room somewhere. But after checking again, the stretch goals are written on a castle, and at the bottom there are still locked doors (and below those would be the basement).
Maybe you're right, that it will be a stretch goal to make a port.
I'm a happy boy again.
