Plot twist: the mystery funder is Konami.

And Kojima getting fired/Silent Hills getting cancelled was viral marketing for the Phantom Pain.

From the KS page: This project will be funded on Fri, Jun 12 2015 8:00 PM PDT. So sometime around/after that.

I'm slightly disappointed by the lack of pledge tier that offers a physical copy of the game, and a copy of the soundtrack before $100.  There's the new, all digital $60 tier, but I'd rather have a physical copy of the game, and not have the strategy book.

I kinda wish the tiers were a little different too. I like the $150 tier with the game, trinkets, and art book, and I don't think any others really interest me until $1500+. Not sure I could afford a $200 tier, but I'd probably beg and borrow to get one if it had any one of the features of a 1500+ tier.  This is possibly only the 3rd kickstarter I've ever looked at though, so I don't have much to compare to.

Next up is Boss Rush Mode. Apparently they'll be updating the stretch goals later today.

Do note that occasionally they add tiers after the KS has already started based on fan reaction, although I don't think it would really be negotiable to bring something from the $1500 tier down very low, partially just out of necessity probably, since stuff like getting your own room in the game being cheap would kind of get crazy if they had maybe 300 people with special rooms in the game, and stuff like designing an enemy takes some dev time to program the AI for and model in addition to their existing list of enemies.

with 2.5D,  Bloodstained can get some really interesting lighting effects, to make things dark and moody and incredible.

DXC is 2.5D and it has some cool atmosphere to it,

of course Bloodstained can polish things more for its background and overall modeling and animations.

you know SOTN was kind of colorful, yet still had its dark tones, too.  so ROTN could be darker than what the
gameplay concept art showed.

I hope whoever it is records the IGA adventure, at times like this I wish I was rich enough to spend that kind of money on stuff like this.

This now has more money than Yooka-Laylee (albeit less backers), which is pretty cool since the latter has people from Donkey friggin' Kong Country - arguably a "bigger deal" than Castlevania for most people.

Not exactly since U.S dollars ($) value less than British pounds (£). Like 1 pound for 1,57 dollars right now. So Yooka Laylee have $2.483,202 (£1,577,247) while Bloodstained have $1,820,051

Before you start wondering why $500,000 can give the basic game...

IGA already has a company that would back most of this project and the KS is just a mandatory requirement from the company that IGA must prove that he has fans who want this. So technically, the KS money is just for additional stuff.
I think it's important to draw some more attention to that bolded part. It's also what that article touched upon. Who is providing the funding? How much are we fans are actually supporting this project? And although we probably aren't sticking it to Konami as much as we think we are by backing this project, I wonder if there aren't a couple of people there headdesking after seeing how much support it gets.

So this means that this company will give 4,5kk to fund this game, right?

I'm going to be so disappointed if we don't hit this. Like I will need to start an emo band dedicated to not reaching the 8-bit-tier, something to the effect of "Your anti-aliasing cuts me deeper than 8-bits ever could" and "8-bit hearts bleed 1080p at 60 fps".
