I think some of it might have to do with IGA's personal perfectionism as well. Even if the game might not be mind-blowing after another day (and who knows, perhaps it will be), I think his own sense of aesthetics wouldn't let it come out before it looks at least better than it did at first.

While all of this is fine, and probably good for the quality of the game itself, I doubt I’ll support another Kickstarter again. I’m not very good at waiting this long for something that technically could end up being not very good or even cancelled altogether. Yes, stuff like that can happen, you know.

So, I echo this sentiment.

JelloApocalypse posted what I think is the ultimate cautionary video concerning Kickstarter projects a while back.

This video is definitely mocking and cynical, but it also aligns with my experiences with Kickstarter (and other similar crowdfunding services).

In a "blink and you'll miss it" moment, it even uses a snapshot from the Bloodstained kickstarter at one point (though not disparagingly).

I do think Iga's good for it, but I hope he doesn't feel compelled to do a repeat performance of this should he ever make a sequel. There's a small need to publicize the production of this particular game because he needs to prove that the format/genre can work, but I don't think he needs to or should with a later game, assuming he wants it to even be a series at all.

How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

well there is rumor IGA wanted to do anothere genre, but chose IGAvania cause its his bread and butter and the only thing people would be confident in throwing money at.

not sure if he would care for a Bloodstained series.  he seems on the borderline of being like John Tobias (who left MK in the hands of Ed Boon)  and Miyazaki (and Miyazaki is so stupid abandoning soulsborne for some stupid Sekiro game.  Soulsborne put them on the president's chair in that company and he wants to so some adventure/action game that is like a extremely stripped down and narrow minded counterpart/opposite of soulsborne genre?   get out of here,  I rather save the money for Code Vein, at least those devs while green, are passionate for the genre. )

kickstarter can be a hit and miss. for me it was more less fine. on the one side, bloodstained is taking forever, attributed to iga having to assemble everything from scratch and having no team he could count on. on the other, la mulana 2 and shantae came out pretty fast and are what i wanted out of them, probably thanks to their respective companies already having experience with handling such projects.

well the delay is a sign that IGA is serious to surpass SOTN (which is already surpassed by several of the later IGAvanias. and even a unorthodox game like Legacy of Darkness completely surpasses IGAvanias in lots of revolutionary ways).  though no matter what they do, SOTN conservatives wont acknowledge ROTN being superior.


anyways, this delay really is sneaky, because thats gonna pressure more people to purchase COTM in the meantime.

though I still say Miriam is the TRUE protagonist of COTM.   Zangetsu is marketed as the main, but COTM Zangetsu side can be interpreted as a nightmare of Miriam's, while Nightmare mode is the true reality of that spinoff dimension.  Miriam is the fact of Bloodstained, so it makes sense that Miriam is the lead protagonist in COTM too, just as Ashe in Final Fantasy XII is the true lead protagonist, not Vaan, no matter how much SE pushes Vaan in Dissidia and other promotions.

though yea its up to interpretation!    I say COTM is just as much the stories of each of the characters, rather than one character.

and anyways , with all the character switching mechanics, the player really is more of an observer. so there are various ways to look at COTM, whose protagonist is really up to the player and the player can manipulate the game to change the protagonist.

Just 20 people? WOW!

And even more shocking was the fact that IGA just worked with 4 people before. No wonder the reused assets.
