Did IGA ever do whips justice in a 2D game? POR's whips were useless and everything about the way HOD controlled was floaty. I guess SOTN Richter feels nice but that mode isn't particularly fun otherwise.

Have they been able to change the functionality of the whips to what we see in CV? That was kinda a letdown to be honest.
I don't think there's any, that would break the existence of IGA's Whip Sword; I presume that the change of whip weapons might be intended to divide the design itself apart from actual CV franchise

I picked up Ritual on my XBox. It runs like a dream there. Honestly, though, I'm tempted to get it again on PC just because of the modding community. From what I've seen, the fans have drastically improved the randomizer in Ritual and made it far more fun to play.

Wasn't here for a moment. Not always easy to find spare time for this hobby and latest years were bit hectic too. So it goes at pace it goes. Turtle one (considering this is a reboot too).

I started anew on the game last summer from zero - with an empty build. Left all code, game structure, every map, enemy, basically all I had behind. Re-creating everything, assets and code included.

I can share some early alpha footage here from this latest version of the game

If you're interested, I'd be happy to feature you on Castlevania: The Inverted Dungeon. Preview page, interview, the like.

Hey guys! Since as Foffy said there seems to be a Bloodstained 2 in the VERY early stages of development (just talking about story and such), my friends and I over at the Bloodstained forums thought it would be fun to have a survey about what folks would like to see improved in a sequel and what new stuff you'd like to see! This is an unofficial, fan administered survey, but folks from 505 and Artplay will be looking at it. Check it out!

Konami might have also got Grant's last name from the real life village with different spelling, just like how they got the name Elisabeth Bartley from a real historical figure Elisabeth Bathory or Mathias Cronqvist from the name of King of Hungary Matthias Corvinus.

I hope to not come off as an asshole if I quote myself:

(click to show/hide)

Could Konami have based themselves on the town name? Yeah. Is it likely given that Grant is portrayed as actual enemy of Dracula in the game, and there was an actual "House Danesti political enemy of Vlad III" at the time Vlad existed? On my opinion, no.

Still- Even if Konami DID base Grant's name on the town, "House Danesti opponent of Vlad III" seems way more important than "romanian town name". This is a wikipedia search away, which is why I think these guys know this, but insist on the "town name" thing to downplay the actual historical importance of the Danesti. Funny when you consider they wanted it to be so "accurate" to the time period. But of course, this is just one of many details that, to me, suggest they just want to bury Grant.

Even burying the character is fine by me, what is not is the constant provocation. One thing is "we are not having Grant, sorry fans!", another is "we are not having Grant AND we are also making fun of those who want him, they're so silly right?!" also "Oh and this character is obviously portrayed to be a Grant stand-in? Not Grant lmao".
