On the topic of the worry about bringing this noisycroak sound team to help with production, I'd like to note that on most of the Castlevania titles she worked on, Yamane-san was sharing the work with at least one other composer. The exceptions are Bloodlines, Symphony of the Night, Lament of Innocence, and Curse of Darkness. So most Igavanias saw her working with someone else. In fact, it seems like in the case of Order of Ecclesia, it was mostly Yasuhiro Ichihashi, with some tracks by Yamane.

Yasuhiro Ichihashi also worked on Harmony of Despair, and I would like to say that I also enjoyed its OST a lot (as well as the game itself). It may not be them specifically, since there was one other composer who worked on that, but I take this as a good sign.


This is definitely the case for Bloodstained, as having Jake Kaufman composing tracks as well was one of the campaign hooks. So as I said, I think that's what they meant when they said Yamane wouldn't be doing everything--gotta leave some tracks for virt! ;D

No one should sell Kaufman short without giving his stuff a listen-to first. He's good at what he does and all of his work that I've heard has not been disappointing. Contra 4, Shovel Knight, Double Dragon Neon, the Shantae series, etc. The man knows how to bring out the classic game music whilst keeping it relevant.

the huge castle should have lots of bosses that can be fought and areas explored in nonlinear fashion.

that would be epic!

do you think the full version will have closer zoom options?  some think its too far away and it should be closer for more epic feeling, SOTN and OoE sprites sure look bigger and the world felt closer.   Bloodstained should add zoom options.  they can keep that wide view as default, but full version should have closer settings.

A zoom would be cool, but I'd be fine without it.  CoTM had little sprites and I loved it.

well I have like a 32" screen, though still I think Miriam and everyone will still look tiny, the gameplay and presentation would have more impact up close, and besides, the speed of this game is not so fast,  people would still be able to be aware of their surroundings and dodge things that even come from out of view,  well on the plus side, it seems the zoom level is closer than Castlevania HD's tightest zoom level, though it wouldn't hurt to add a closer zoom.  ;D

the backers should push for it, all it takes is an extra option added to the settings.  this is a $5,000,000 funded project after all.

Hey guys! Pardon me for the request, but if you don't have an account at the Bloodstained fan forums, you might want to sign up so you can vote on this:

http://bloodstainedfanforums.com/thread/2647/operation-art-legacy?page=1&scrollTo=48035

The development team is paying attention to these polls, so many responses mean you might have a chance to influence how the art direction of Bloodstained turns out! Give it a look~

Bloodstained's current art style is fine with me, why would they vote on changing it?

The response is overwhelming anyway. No need to sign up for that.
I'm thinking they will have an art gallery for her works?

Thanks Gunlord. Everyone, please... I hate to ask, but I think it's important to vote yes. It may appear like the response is overwhelming, but look at it from the publisher view. 468 votes may sound like a lot to you, but this is a game backed by 65,000. The post has been updated to reflect new information, but I'll try and summarize.

It's not about changing the art style of the game. This is about changing the marketing art assets as its presented to the public. IntiCreates is no longer part of the main project. Natsume sans artwork isn't an option anymore. DICO is doing production work, but this game needs an art style to define it from here on out in a market friendly way. Not just for Bloodstained, but also for any future games.

IGA isn't taking full advantage of Mana's artistic potential. As it was explained to me, I don't think he has the resources to currently do so. This voting thing is to convince 505 Games to push a bit more money at IGA so that he can man an easy decision about this, and trust me 505 has their eyes on this poll.

Look, maybe 1000+ votes is a bit much to expect. Let's at least get 505 yes votes and then throw it to the publisher.

There are two paths before you. Have Mana's style appear more to help sell the game and possible future games, or get by with minimal marketing material from DICO. Mana's style obviously upholds the legacy. DICO has provided monster and character concept art, but the only post IntiCreates promotional art assets we have seen is the new poster art by Mana.

Come on, Army of the Night. IGA is probably too humble to expect his fans to be able to make a publisher consider this. Let's show 505 Games we are a passionate group who can be both respectful and organized.

It's a weird feeling to see almost 4000 guests visit the forum in a 24 hour span and not have that poll at 1000 by now. It's not like it costs anything. ArtPlay (IGA) pays for that forum's hosting costs. I'd like to think it's worth it.

Yeah, Mike nailed it. Mana's a great artist, so just a few more votes for her could secure her in Bloodstained's future! I know it's a bit to ask, but registering at the Bloodstained forums is easy. Could some of you guys just sign up and vote, just for me? I know you guys love ol' Gunlord :D Just let your old buddy call in this one favor, I'll make it up to you someday <3 Please please? :D
