Don't think for even a minute that this game of yours is useless due to IGA's game coming out and filling the "CV void" for us. You've already put way too much work into your project to simply throw it away. I my opinion, the more CV-like games we have, the better it will be. More variety, options, and all that jazz. I would love to give this game a play-through and I hope that IGA's project doesn't dissuade you from finishing it. It reminds me so much of our beloved classicvanias; specifically Super Castlevania IV. Don't quite this over concerns of another developer, please.  :'(

Bro, don't count yourself short. Just because everyone wants to play IGA's dream title, not everyone wants to JUST play that game. You still can get some that audience in your favor and you can make some side money too!

Its not just IGAs game announcement today. I just want to find out if the game truly has an audience. I am all for options, Especially since this is a classicvania over metroidvania. But with about 7ish months of development, its time to get it out there and Steam Greenlight is a great way of guaging feedback and overall opinion.

And to be honest, with Castlevania on peoples tongues now is a good time to throw this game into the wild.

You know, I was thinking it might be nice to see if IGA could give a shoutout to your game. A Not!Metroidvania (Bloodstained) and a Not!Classicvania (Anathema) might make a good pair on Steam :D

That's an awesome sprite.

It's kind of surreal to see Aurora in a sprite form.

Going by the style of this sprite I think I can tell the author. He did a really good job :)

Hey, everybody! I'm the music/score composer and cutscene storyboardist for Anathema. I just wanted to drop by and say that we really appreciate all the support you've given us thus far, and we hope that you'll continue to do so as we move forward with the project.

We also appreciate your criticism. It really is helping us gauge what works and what doesn't. While I'm not involved much in terms of game design, I know that Pisces is taking all of your thoughts into consideration, and is attempting to make (and has made) great strides in improving the game overall.

As for me, I'm hoping to create a rockin', melodic, and catchy score for you guys by project's end! This is pretty much a “dream job” for me, as I've always wanted to write music for a video game, so I hope to not disappoint!

Thanks again, folks!
