well, it doesn't need to be backer only, yeah. but still, that way could work, considering they're apparently planning a shovel knight style expansion release. people who got digital only for $28 get just that, and those who get physical for more get digital from get go+all the free addons as they're released, and once it's all finished and complete physical version is printed they get that too. that way they don't have to wait additional year or two to play the game, creating unnecessary hype that won't be able to live up to reality, or disappointment and tiredness from constantly delayed content.

there is literally no difference between physical and digital as far as gameplay goes, and pretty much all hardware this game's for supports such releases.

Ok, for your information, if you don't have an x box controller, you can't play the new demo. It doesn't have keyboard support, only x box controller support. The conclusion? You either spend 50 euro for an x box controller or you wait for the full game release and play it!!

Watched a full playthrough of the demo, I'm much more excited now. There is a lot of cool stuff packed in this game.

It definitely doesn't look pretty at all, but now I have no doubts this will be a meaty game in terms of content and secrets.

With so many problems, i doubt it will get released in 2018, maybe early 2019. In it's current state it just seems so unpolished.

Excited to read people’s impressions of the demo, seeing as I don’t have access to it.

Too bad about the Xbox controller-only problem. I was just spending the day working on controller support options for my own game. It can get quite tricky when it comes to supporting any kind of analog stick, as they don’t all work the exact same way. So while my cheap off-brand USB N64 controller feels right, the analog stick for the Xbox 360 controller makes the game significantly harder to control. I’m going to have to spend more time than I thought making my game compatible with any controller.

I haven't played it, but have been watching playthroughs. A few areas look rough, visually (particularly the town and the woodsy area right before the turning bridge towards the castle). Other areas look really nice. I love some of the purple and blue lighting on some of the pillar rooms, and that one dark blood moon room in the Garden of Silence looks pretty neat. The "area transition rooms" look pretty damn detailed.

Love the music. Garden of Silence's theme reminds me of SotN's Marble Gallery.

This demo looks and sounds better than the previous gameplay I've seen.

Also there's major side-boobery in that story trailer @ 1:15  ;D

Can't wait for Dominique to appear  :P

Keyboard users, have you figured out the control scheme? Seems to be:

WASD: Movement
Enter: Attack
Space: Jump
Num Lock: Toggle Analog Stick On/Off
Keypad/Arrows: Analog Stick
K: Menu

Can't seem to figure out the rest and random key tapping isn't helping. My mouse doesn't work either, though it did in the previous demo. Weird.

I've just finish it and i can say it's far more better than the previous demo. Still it has flaws, but i believe the final product will be good!! As for the controller, if you have a ps4 controller, steam has support for it, you just plug your controller with the usb cable and go to the options on steam and click the box next to ps4 controller and you are good to go!!

note, if you want japanese voices, press all 4 shoulder buttons at once. they will persist from then on, so you can do it in your current save, then start a new game and play from start with them.

is there option to turn off the minimap on the top right?  option to remove minimap onscreen would be a huge plus.

Bloodstained devs should be more confident and not hand hold the players so much with navigation. 

Dark Souls games are million sellers and they don't have ingame map nor minimap AT ALL.

IGAvanias are fine with just a full map the player can pull up anytime.

Bloodstained devs should be more confident and not hand hold the players so much with navigation. 

Why not go the extra mile and have the player need to find an actual map in the castle so they can see the map? No no, I know! Why not bundle Bloodstained®: Ritual of the Night™ with unique, physical copies of Bloodstained®: Cartographic Charts of Sorrow™ squared-paper so the player can go back to a more... "hands-on" approach and have them map out the game themselves in real time on these copies of paper? Why they could also bundle a special feather to use with the limited Bloodstained®: Ink of Blood™ vials that come with each game, so you gotta be extra careful to not mess up your cartography lest the ink runs out and your ability to map the castle is hindered!

Look, jokes aside, I can hardly see how making a convenience available is "so much hand holding". I'm pretty sure having a button press to show you the full map adds no depth to the difficulty at all, nor does having a minimap available make the game shallower just because seeing the map doesn't require you to do ONE extra button press. TL;DR: Super Metroid.

But I agree that it would be nice to have the ability to toggle the minimap... which is actually in the game. Just open the main map and you'll get the options to configure the minimap.
