Looks nice, but I do have some issues with it. first off, the fact that the hero seems to be wielding the whip in 1776 and is a Lecarde. Even if the Lecarde family were related to the Belmont family at that time, the Lecarde family wouldn't have the vampire killer. Then again, it could be a different magical whip. My point is that this game takes before the Belmonts vanished and were unable to touch the whip until 1999 (something which was never explained).
If it was a Lecarde wielding the Alucard Spear after the year 1797, I wouldn't have any issues. That's just my 2 cents.

darkwzrd4 i see you've got great knowledge of the Castlevania history . :D
Thanks for your reply .

You're right ! that is why the  whip's name won't be "VAMPIRE KILLER" but "ALCARDE WHIP".

Judging by the video that actually looks pretty good. I'm fairly impressed. Nothing looks particularly lacking considering it is a fan game, be it visual, audio, or even stage design. Most fan games are terrible with stage design. I'll have to play it myself to get a total feel for it, but interesting so far.

Consider that I am saying this as someone who owns a video game company.

This looks really good man! I like everything but the title. Moonlight Opera just sounds so cliché for a Castlevania title. This game looks great, by the way. Almost reminds me of the screen shots I saw years and years ago of a game that never was called Castlevania Shin Dracula X (which was most likely a hoax).

Anyways, I'm sure it's too late to change your title and I'm sure a lot of people like it. I just hope it doesn't get lost in the mix of sub-par CV fan games that have titles just like that. I gotta say, this is one of the most promising fan CV games I've ever seen.

Great work! I can't wait to play it!

I'll definitely want to play this. Please get this thing finished!

I also agree that the name is rather cliché. IGA has used music-based titles in almost all of his CV games that is does start to wear out rather fast. So rather then relying on a music-based title why not go with something that will describe what the game is about. For instance; The game is about the Lecarde family correct?. Why not call the game Castlevania: The Lecarde Legacy Or The Lecarde Chronicles.

I really liked what i have seen in the video, like uzo said, it's very difficult to find a good fan made game, but yours it's looking very nice so far.

Question: will this take place in the IGA canon or an original one?
Also, "Alcarde" in Bloodlines was a mistranslation of "Alucard", just saying.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

I personally would not bother trying to jam the story to fit with the IGA canon. After all, it's a fan game. It can never really exist in the IGA story line anyways.

Just a thought!

:) Well well well...

Thanks for yours comments . They are heart warming to me .. I'm a great fan of castlevania and i spent 3 years to make that .

I have to deal with some minors changes and bugs.....I think the game will be available in a couple of weeks . I've said the game ......And not a demo . It will be a complete game with a begining and an ending .

What i like here , is that i learn lots of things .....

I did not know the ALCARDE world "history" .  ;D   .

Maybe i will change the game's name for LECARDE CHRONICLES . That is a good idea thanks MontoyaGraphics and X you will be credited in the game . in the "special thanks" part .

Thanks everybody .

I hope you'll like the game .

I did not spaek about the game . Only Jorge D fuentes and other  people i needed the music were informed . If i made a game with musics without asking for permission of the makers , they would not like that . ;)

I hope to not disapoint you , Uzo .I'm feeling very proud with what you did say .

I repeat that . I DID not ripped the graphics they were all made by myself ( with lots of castlevania inspiration of course . That will give to the game a unique looking . I wanted to avoid the DEJAVU looking effect of the games notably made with ripped graphics .

Other problem game's resolution is 640X480 . If i used ripped graphics they would have been very smalls  ;D.

I will give you the release date as soon as possible of CASTLEVANIA : LECARDE CHRONICLES.

I did not speak of the game so far ....Why ?
Because lots of peole do fan games demos ...The fans are waiting for ....Then the game is cancelled  :-[ it's is frustrating ; I could have cancelled for thousands of reasons .

MontoyaGraphics is right ... Is a fan game really need a storyline that enters the series canon ?

Nevertheless i think that the game has a storyline that will not a source of troubles.. I hope.

Now THIS is what a fan game should look like! It's great to see that you tried to put in some new surprises, and that you actually put in lots of new gfx (a VERY difficult task). You even went so far as to put in a map, movelist, and a menu.

This looks really impressive from the video. Hopefully it plays as good as it looks.

Also to be blunt: who gives a DAMN about the story or what he calls it. Just look at how good this guy's game looks.  ;D

LOL, how did a simple question about the story end up making you worry? Chill.
Anyway, I don't really care if the story takes place in IGA timeline or not. Even if the story is bare-bones, as long as it's sensible enough it's okay in my book.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.
