Fan Stuff / Castlevania: Ballad of Darkness V 1.3
« Last post by Patheticmw on November 16, 2021, 10:24:35 AM »
Greetings, all!
I found some time and after noticing a few playthrough videos of my old game, Castlevania: Ballad of Darkness, I made a new update to the game, taking in criticism and making quality changes. I'm still just a one man team making a game for fun, but I'm here to present to you the new and improved Castlevania: Ballad of Darkness V 1.3! I might hop in the comments and post screenshots later for those who haven't seen the original game, and like I previously stated, there are a few youtube videos that show off the old game. I did notice a lot of people missing some key features of the game so I would encourage everyone to take a brief look at the readme for the controls before playing. A List of updates and future possible changes is also included in the file, as well as a config for JoytoKey. I take any and all feedback, all I ask is that it be constructive. Thank you, and please let me know what you think!  :)

Tried a lot of Touhou 17.5. Man it's bad. B.A.D.

The biggest problem is the awful controls. You cannot pull out one specific move as you want, they're too random, and you missed one step and bang. Ruined the current life. There's no regular jump, only an upward dash equals to high jump, binded along with forward jumps. That freakin' sucks. Not to mention several "spell cards" seems to be designed around regular jump in mind but there's simply no such bloody move in your moveset! What's wrong with the designers??

The next problem - It's a sort of boss rush-only game, while it looks like a 2D platformer there's no mid-stage minor enemies, if you treated it as fighting game instead there's no two-player VS mode like previous "official" offspring Touhou games focusing on one-on-one fighting. The result is a dumb combination that's so boring, and left only a bad taste afterwards. Obviously the game is either rushed or unfinished. The game's genre should be ironed out in the game's planning process. But in its current shape it clearly isn't.
I wonder what happens? The game has been delayed for roughly two years? Not worth it at all.
They really shouldn't release a game that bad in its current state, it's a disgrace to the already obscure Touhou community as a whole. If they ran out idea on 2D platforming, they really should outsource it to some one else who do care about 2D genre instead of creating this mess.


What will happen if in a universe Inti Creates and Touhou Project joining hands? Touhou Project never ran out of waifus while Inti Creates is famous for its love of imoutou suffering. A popular and actually good 2D platforming game could happen in that alternate universe?

So I put in my two weeks' notice last week, lol, last day is Thursday. Turns out my supervisor is a gigantic dick, just couldn't see it before. He plays these weird little mind games and is very discouraging. I could write a novel about why this job actually sucks big-time asserino, but it's all a bit complicated and bullshitty and I'm just ready to be out of here.

Don't know what I'll do next, I just know I've been miserable the past six weeks. The other electricians on my team all experience the same mental torment and then some by our angry, manipulative boss, and I said "hell nah" and decided I wouldn't be miserable alongside these dudes—guys I like working with but not enough to stick around.

Kinda sucks because it's the highest paying job I've ever had, but everyone says it's kind of a gantlet being here and that any amount of time spent working here, especially leaving of my own volition, will look good on a resume. Might go for more electrical work, don't know. There's jobs hiring for considerably more than what this place offers and they don't require much experience.

I do know that I'm gonna take a break for at least a couple weeks, refresh my mind, go for walks again to strengthen my back and lose weight, and just try to gain some happiness back. I'll help my dad out at his business in the meantime, which are hours that I choose. I know that wherever I go, I'll demand maximum 40 hours a week, because mandatory overtime is garbage ass.

I am a massive Mega Man fan. You name it, I've played it, barring some more obscure side titles. I've certainly not played Mega Man Soccer, or the Tiger Electronics games. But any mainline and side game, and I've played it, and might even own it in some capacity.

God I love Mega Man.

Arguably, And forgive me for saying such heresies on a Castlevania board, but I am a Mega Man fan before a Castlevania fan. Mega Man is my #1

I'm just hoping for a written story and not a full game.
Plot, Stay healthy. You're life is the biggest priority.
If the game side is scrapped, you can always post the story with accompanying music. hehe.

No one is interested anymore, so I'm officially closing this.
