Kid Dracula and SotN Inverted Castle

I was thinking and maybe the inverted castle idea was based on Kid Dracula "Upside-down" ability, where he walks on the ceiling.

Maybe its not only Galamoth and Yorick that came from this game...

I just watched some of Uzo's stream and I've never played Kid Dracula, but it's interesting how some of the ideas for SoTN came from Kid Dracula.

Is Yorick from Kid Dracula? I only know him from Shakespear's play; Hamlet. And considering that in SotN he is a headless skeleton looking for his head (that he accidentally keeps kicking around lol) well it kinda makes sense in that regard since he was a Jester in life.

Yes, Yorick is from Kid Dracula, he removes and throw his own head, then starts to kick it in you.

Nope, Yorick is from Shakespeare's Hamlet.  ;)

I think that I was misundertood here, I never said that they created it on Kid Dracula. I meant that it is from Kid Dracula as in "he was first introduced in the franchise in this game" :)

I'd just like to point out that "Yorick" is one of those things that the sotn localization team made up IIRC.
"Stuff and things."
