I have received requests to respond if the project is alive or not. So, pseudo-update time. I'll try to be objective and offer a bit of context where needed.

There's the pseudo-update. Now, for something a little more positive.

Honestly, I never expected for this to turn into a game from the get-go. So it comes as no surprise to me that it might not make it that far. It was only a story to explain what had happened in 1999 and to answer a lot of questions people had about IGA's non-existent CV game. You crafted a good story and did all that you could, going above and beyond the call of CV duty (as much as humanly possible) to accurately tell the tale of the Demon Castle War. With a little help from the many members of the CVD community you were able to bring about a story the pretty much fills the gaps and gives us all an idea of just how things went down and who was involved story-wise. While it is a shame the game might be nothing more then a dream, let's at least count our blessings that the story was able to finally be revealed.

Well, recently I saw a drawing of Junki on Twitter and also the Grimoire of Souls has come back to life so I would like to know how the project is going and how much the history of the Grimoire of Souls will affect the game.

I'm responding to you in a separate post since the post above is meant as a general statement and has been linked in the front post of this thread.

As far as I know, GoS still has not moved beyond the point it was back when it was an Android beta. Whatever changes required to be done based on GoS at that point, is done. GoS has, for one, forced me to begrudgingly remove/rework the character of Charlotte in the plot. GoS is 80% decent writting, and 20% utter nonsense, with Alucard acting uncharacteristically ignorant and having zero idea about Dracula's return in the 1940s because, as a surrogate to the player, he has to have everything explained to him. And this is one instance of that.

Junki's piece is a fanart of the ideas he knows about the project. You will not see that scene in the game IF the game ever comes out.

The Evil Deads are always a good time. The original trilogy is perfection.

I've been rewatching the Halloweens. The new one was such a turd, but there've been plenty of those in the series. Halloween 6: Producers Cut actually got better this time around, but its story is so bonkers and dumb.

We could have the same list if you swap Streets of Rage for Half-Life.

Nice. That's pretty awesome!

Nice. Evil Dead II is one of my favorite horror movies (that and The Shining).

I just bought Resident Evil Village, so I'm giving that a go. The castle was pretty cool. Tough to say if it's as good as RE7, though.

Awesome update. Thank you so much Kurt <3

I actually laughed out loud from the nostalgia of the early design with the glorious red text and blood dripping titles. I haven't seen this view since I was probably 14 years old. I loved checking the site out after school and reading up on all the SotN Weirdness & references. I also finally found the fan fiction I was looking for after returning all these years. For some reason it just stuck with me and I always wanted to read it again. It was "Rondo" by Sung.

Thank you for preserving history. Now everyone can recall the most important question of the day...

W/FRAMES or NO FRAMES

@X

Thanks! It's not a "remix" though. I've never done a remix or used midi files for any of my covers. They're all made anew from the ground up. There are a couple more ScV4 tracks I did from Lecarde Chronicles 2 like Pillared Corridor and Torture Chamber.

@war machine

Holy crap man I remember KB toys! I really miss the toy stores from when we were kids. The last toys r us in MN closed a couple years ago and it still depresses me. I miss Funcoland too. GameStop just isn't the same...

I can't remember where I got ScV4. Likely Kmart or Pamida. Haha
Oh yeah for sure man lol. And IMO, places like EB were the SHIT before Gamestop came around.  I really liked how you could walk in any EB and find basically any kind of retro game but they didn't flood the stores with all the same games.  It was like a treasure trove lol.
