Well to be fair Wallachia isn't a Castlevania game, it is its own thing with a stand-alone story. Maybe the reason why you didn't like it as much might have been due to expectations. I've always made it a point not to expect anything otherwise I'd only be setting myself up for a fall. I believe what Mig was doing with this game was to put together an old Arcade-style title like many a popular games back in the day.

I also believe that the reason why we don't see a Switch port for LC2 is due to legal issues with Konami since the game fan fiction taking place within the CV universe.

Absolutely! How dense of me. Legal issues...For some reason, I didn't think of that lol. And yes, you are absolutely right, it's really just the matter of switching genres after experiencing LC2. It kind of threw me off I guess. But MIG does put up quality games, this is a fact.

@SabinFigaro

Thanks so much for your support! We 100% understand how Wallachia could seem like a step backwards after the large game that was LC2, even though it's a much more refined game.

There are good reasons why we decided to make an arcade style game this time. Firstly, we were burnt out on the Metroidvania genre after the marathon of work LC2 was. Secondly, we felt more comfortable with taking on an arcade style game for our first commerical release because we wanted to focus on polishing the game. We felt more confident we could deliver a quality game in the arcade genre. Thirdly, being a game about Dracula, we decided that we wanted to make Wallachia more of its own thing rather than make a full on Castlevania clone, so we took the opportunity to get inspired by some of our other favorite games and not just Castlevania.

It's definitely not lost on us that we are known for making CV fan games, and we just made a game about Dracula that plays more like Shinobi than Castlevania. We understand there will be confusion for some players.

But your support helps our next game. If an LC2 port on console is what you were wanting, just know that we are working on a new Metroidvania game that will be better than an LC2 port, and it's called Chronicles of the Wolf.

Thanks again and hopefully Wallachia will grow on you over time. We had a lot of fun making the game and we learned a lot!

Can't wait. Chronicles of the wolf sounds awesome. What I really liked about LC2 is that it took the Simon's quest formula, yet managed to do away with levels and forced you to get good at the game. No OP Levels grind. The music was also fantastic and Wallachia is obviously composed by the same guy. Anyways keep up the good work guys. Cheers

I just got the game!



However I found something very interesting. The game is not pixel perfect.

When I was making the scaling of my game I wanted to have perfect pixels.

In Wallachia when you move some pixels get bigger and then smaller. Why not include fixed ratios as option?

Wallachia likely uses a 3d engine or a modern 2d game engine. they often lack options for pixel scaling.
Even if you were to have a lower fixed resolution, the pixels of the assets and the pixels of the screen resolution would not match and it would horribly distort the pixel art

They use Fusion 2.5 if I am not mistaken. It was used to make Lecarde Chronicles 1 and 2. And they have fixed ratio with black borders.

Also on modern engines a custom scaler will do a great job of scaling on integers of x2, x3, x4 etc. while maintaining the chosen ratio.

I commented on it as it was a weird choice for me. It is very noticeable on a 4K tv.

I want to buy this however the one paysite is not region-recognized (Canada, Whitehorse, yukon. where I'm from) and the all-region one seems to be twitter-based and I don't use twitter. Is there some way I can get a copy of this game without all the hoop-jumping?

I take it, judging by the image, its Free Agent Games. I guess I'll just have to wait till the site is up and running.
