Yes, it is. In fact, here is the animation. The Air-effect needs some work though. As for the cross, I think Simon * should throw it sideways, kinda like you would throw a ninja star.

*Also, when, or if, is there going to be a demo?

Actually, He's supposed to be holding out a crucifix which kinda shoots out a series of cross shaped projectiles described as a "beam".

It looks rather awesome! Can't wait for a full game.
Your big blue charge-clash (0:18) from the beast is reversed from what it should be, though.

Is it?

*checks*

...SHIT!

Damn, I spent like an hour overlaying an undulating image trail in the animation (it's only about a dozen frames, so the work's justified). Oh well. Should be an easy fix, assuming I haven't deleted the trail animation.

And Zero, while that animation's not bad, he moves too quickly. It looks like there are some frames missing in the swing. And I do plan on making the whip non-static when it extends, but since that's purely a cosmetic effect, it can wait for the time being. Even though I'll probably do it here in like an hour.  :P

And yes, there will be a demo. It will be the first stage. It's nearly done, I just have to make Medusa's boss. I'm having trouble deciding how I want to do her, hence the time it's taking. I'd prefer a snake-tail one like in Chronicles/X68 and Rondo, but chain segment physics in GM are looking to be tedious as hell, and I haven't found any guides to give me any base for what I'm actually looking for. I thought about using her SotN incarnation, but I don't know how I feel about that one. It's not snakey enough for me. I'm currently considering giving her two forms; the SotN woman-snake form and then at half health she turns into a giant snake, or something. That idea would make her fight have more attacks, since her SotN AI is pitifully basic.

And I'm still studying Dracula's two forms in Esco's engine for AI tricks and techniques, so that's also eating up time.

Eh, fuck it. Y'all have waited a good long while. I can put out a debug demo for the time being.

Held together with duct tape, so don't be surprised if/when anything/everything suddenly breaks. Controls and bug listings are in the readme.

DISREGARD DISREGARD DISREGARD

I forgot I had set Dracula to insta-kill you on contact to fix some death issues, and I hadn't changed his damage back to normal. Don't touch this one, I'll fix it and have it back up tomorrow.

Too late. :P I downloaded it yesterday, though I've only touched it just now.
Anyway, when you reset the game, it doesn't stop the previous BGM stream, so you could end up stacking quite a few BGM streams if you reset multiple times in a row.
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.

He does if you touch him directly.

Anyway, fixed the damage variable, finished up adding in the Laurel, and fixed the BGM streams. Hopefully nothing else pops up.

Fun. Since you are using S and A why don't you make D and F for the item usage?

I feel like there should also be an evasive ground roll similar to the double flip. I constantly wanted to roll to avoid some of the beast's attacks.

That's all I got for now. Can't wait for a full stage to demo!

Engine's coded for up+attack. Too lazy to change.

And in my own defense, not every fangame has to play like CVBla.

Actually, I wasn't referring to CVBla at all, ASDF and QWERTY etc. is pretty common.

The current set up for your buttons for me feels unnatural playing it  with a keyboard. I am sure you could come up with a better control scheme. I think you should have some other testers try it with the keyboard and come up with a better scheme. What is the point of make a solid game where the controls aren't as good, that turns me off a game right away.

So I found a bug.
When you jump and attack at this exact spot, Simon will get stuck in the ceiling. If he takes damage, he'll be permanently stuck on the damage animation and become invincible. If he doesn't take damage, he can attack normally. But nothing can be done to unstuck him out.

At first I became stuck by being damaged and throw 'inside' the wall, but I intentionally tried it more times and it worked. Works with any whip, too.
