We are very close to being ready for the release date announcement, and unless something unforeseen delays us, the Steam version of Carpathian Night Starring Bela Lugosi will launch in late March.

Now that we are at the end, I wanted to thank this community and everyone who ever posted in this thread for their contributions to this project. The development of this game was by far the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life. It was a relentless grind that lasted six years, and the only thing that kept me going and enabled me to endure was the encouraging words and feedback from people like you. If nobody cared about what I was doing, I would have quit this project long ago. I went through the grinder because so many of you convinced me that our project was something special, worth dedicating my entire being to. Considering how this journey is ending, with Carpathian Night as the debut video game of the legendary Bela Lugosi, I can't thank you guys enough for encouraging me to stay on this path. I couldn't be happier with how this all ended, and I wouldn't take it back for anything.

Thank you all for everything, I hope you understand how much of an impact your encouraging words has had on us and on our project. You will always be a part of Carpathian Night's story.

2 more days until Dracula returns from the Devil's Scholomance with the Army of the Dead at his back!

Will you be releasing an OST for this game by any chance? I'd pay for one.

I am putting an OST together for the Kickstarter backer rewards, but we planned on delivering that alongside the console versions. We have some of the older versions of the tracks up on Spotify as well, but we plan to take those down and update them with the newer versions. We will have more time for extras like this once the console versions are out.

One day remains!

I wanted to talk a bit about our future plans. We plan to release on Steam tomorrow, and the console versions should be ready before the end of the summer. Hopefully, the game will sell well enough for us to continue working on it. We would like to add free updates sometime in 2025. Personally, I want more levels, cutscenes, and localization features, but player feedback will help guide our roadmap. There are still many common features, such as controller mapping, that did not make it in due to time and budget constraints, but features like these can be added as updates as we are able to add them.

I hope you guys enjoy Carpathian Night Starring Bela Lugosi. The whole project began from a desire of mine to see more of the formula established in Super Castlevania IV, my favorite game in the series. I could never find what I wanted within the Castlevania series, or outside of it. Carpathian Night is my vision for how I would have made this game, because nobody else did it for me, after decades of waiting. I hope we captured the essence, while doing it in a way that is uniquely our own.

And finally, I tried my best to find every bug, but if I failed, please let me know so I can fix it and continue to improve the game.

Sharpen your oak stakes! The return of the Lord of the Vampires is imminent!

I'd like to point out this game comes out on the Christian Good Friday, when Jesus died and Hell no doubt rejoiced. Evil will surely be out in full force and brave hunters will be needed to push it back.  ;)

Just curious, since it's influenced by Super Castlevania IV, will it have the whip grappling, where you swing between platforms?

No, I was never a fan of that particular mechanic, as much as I love the whip mechanics in SCIV. I was not interested in carrying that mechanic over into our game.
