So it sounds like they're bringing back Curse of Darkness's weapon forge system, right? That was handily the best thing about that game. Who is the artist? Miriam's portrait looks like Ayami Kojima's work, but Gebel and Johannes look more like Masaki's work.

Quote from: Kickstarter
WHY 2.5D?

IGA decided to go with 2.5D for this project for both financial and artistic reasons. All decisions in game development involve trade-offs, and for Bloodstained a 2.5D world built on Unreal Engine 4 was the right choice to balance development time, graphical fidelity, budget, and scope.

At the same time, IGA is very excited about exploring the paths a 2.5D style opens up within the classic Igavania formula. As he begins a new chapter of his career as a developer, he's looking forward to trying things that will enhance, rather than detract from, that core gameplay.

Still, though, we would never discount the fans' love for that classic style. The development team is looking forward to working with backers every step of the way to decide on custom shaders that will give the game a distinctive, hand-crafted look. Games like Guilty Gear and Strider are proof that 2.5D can be handled in a way that honors a classic aesthetic while allowing for new possibilities; that’s what IGA hopes to achieve with this project.

And of course, since it's an Igavania game, the 2D gameplay and feel are nonnegotiable.

I feel really good about this. 2.5D isn't always my cup of tea but this at least sets my worst fears at bay.

Aw shit, son, this is getting good! Also listening to Yamane's demo track. Sounds a lot like her work on Curse. And doth mine ears hear a callback to Toccata into Bloodstained Darkness at the very end?

Put my money in, the concept art is great, let's hope they game is as close as possible to that. Great to have Yamane and Yamada (big Inti Creates fan here), I don't care about Kojima.

Johannes is the villain.

Calling it.
The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

The fact that there's no Wii U (or 3DS) versions is quite a letdown. Oh well, I guess it's PC for me..  :-\

This looks pretty fucking sweet, and that intro video was great. Glad to see IGA is still super passionate about these games. I felt like that passion was missing in his last couple entries before he went MIA, but that could be attributed to issues with publishers. Regardless of whatever it was, passion is what the genre needs right now.

NOW WHERE ARE MAH WHIPS? I SAW A LOT OF SWORDS, BUT NO WHIPS. JOHANNES? I WANT TO PLAY JOHANNES.
