I haven't backed this yet, but I 100% will. Hopefully there are quite a few people who are also holding off just a liiiiittle bit longer, so we can reach that $3 million. I'm expecting things to speed up again in the final 48 hours.

Just gotta raise some money on the side toward this game when I am able to so I can get it.

Can someone contact Igavania/Bloodstained and ask if the Dungeon members can get a special clan?

Oh my gosh 22 days to go... My Gebel cross stitch is still not yet 1/4 done....

You are officially my favorite person of the day. Cross stitch ftw! I have only ever attempted very simple 8-bit sprites, which look very cool and all, but one day I'm gonna try to make something more complicated!

I am really impressed by this kickstarter so far. From a pure marketing perspective, and how they really involve/engage the backers by encouraging us to create all sorts of great stuff, this is how you do a campaign in the days of the internetz! The big companies should take notice.

I sent them a private message giving my support, and Iga did reply, so yeah, it's easy to do that, or, alternatively, just leave a comment on the KS main page.  :)  That would actually be pretty awesome to have.

Go, Shiroi, go!  You can do this, you can get Gebel done!  :D  *Pulls out a pair of black and gold cheer-leading pom-poms*


Dang it OSM my eyes to many Christophers x-x

Also if you get the book one day tell me how it is and if it's worth it.

The artbook is gorgeous, and it does explain a couple of small details of the plot.  It's not a huge book in terms of thickness, and I'd have loved more than just a few pages devoted to the character designs for Gabriel, Alucard, and Trevor, but that said, it is still very pretty, and worth picking up.  I have both the signed limited edition version and the regular version.  The art and the music were definitely LoS2's greatest strengths.  The castle sections were almost like a different game compared to the lack-lustre modern city, I'd have loved a whole game set in *that* castle.  It felt like the creativity got stomped on somewhat.  :'(  *Ends rant*

Shiroi's Nocturne of Recollection cross stitch is gorgeous - she has piccies of it in the fanart thread.  I really look forward to stitching it as well at some point, when I finally manage to finish my beast of a SotN embroidery (9 years of working on it on and off now), which Shiroi's given me the motivation to start working on again (once I have a small project that I need to finish by July out of the way).

I just now caught up with this thread since my last post. I didn't notice anyone talking about the Beta access information that was included in the kickstarter email update #5

Quote
We're happy to announce that all backers at $60 or above who choose PC copies of Bloodstained will be granted beta access via Steam. What does this mean for you?

    Get a chance to play early builds of the game.
    Help the development team squash bugs and make the best Igavania possible.
    See the game's development from a different perspective.
    Provide valuable feedback.

All $60+ digital and physical PC copies will be eligible for the beta, but the beta version will only run on Windows. It's definitely going to be the biggest group of beta testers IGA has ever worked with, but he and the team are looking forward to your help.

This means that if you pick to receive a PS4 or Xbone version of the game, you won't get Beta access.

If you choose the PC version, you could help shape how the game will eventually end up in a small way.

This pretty much cements my decision to pick the physical PC version of the game.

virt would rock on a CV-like soundtrack. Bloodstained's sound team is already excellent, but it'd be crazy to have him on board.

So, from what I understand, the 8-bit music from Virt will be used in the classicvania mode (plus the 8-bit songs from Yamane and the other guy). These 8-bit tracks are all mini stretch goals. BUT! What would happen if we only unlock one or two of these mini stretch goals? It won't happen but what if? We're left with only one-two 8-bit tracks for the classicvania mode. I sometimes don't understand how these stretch goals work. By the look of things, we're getting them all, for sure. But still... WHAT IFFFF

Maybe they're going for a regular soundtrack for the classicvania mode, and these remixes are just a bonus and not the intended soundtrack for the actual levels.. Perhaps you'll be able to choose the music before you start playing?

Virt is so awesome btw.

Then it'll be called "Circle of the Moon mode", and it'll be an 8-bit remix of Sinking Old Sanctuary playing for most of the areas.

This castle is going to be massive, pretty sure that last stretch goal is attainable at this point.

I'm really, really hoping this isn't another Mighty No. 9 in the making. I trust IGA WAY more than Inafune, but this still has the happenings to go wrong.

I said I wouldn't back this until I saw gameplay, but then IGA promises a Classicvania and that just ruined my tenure lol

as optimistic as every1 is, dont get ur hopes up too high. as i say once the dust settles and reality starts to kick in and people give it a playthru a few times, people will begin to pick this game apart as always. "this game was way too overhyped" mightwill be a common expressio, calling it now

i hope im wrong but cmon, iga never received this much praise during the gba/ds era and his gameplay/story decisions were being criticized left n right. sure he has way more development time this time, but i can still see people say "he had over a year to make this & this is what we get??" "theres still a severe lack of platforming, just like the other metrovanias" "too many useless items & magic, just like sotn" "the game is too derivative/not derivative enough" "i think i still like DXC more" "well at least it had good artwork & music" etc etc. this is inevitable

the fanbase is fickle, always has been and everyone is just super high rite now

Man, I'm just starting the realize that the scope of this game is going to be mind boggling. Not only is this potentially (I'm pretty sure it will be) the biggest castle IGA's ever designed/developed we're getting all of this awesome bonus content on top of it. 2017 can't come soon enough guys. D: Guess I'll have to dust off my old CV games to occupy the time until then.

As long as people keep their expectations on a reasonable level, I'm sure we'll be fine. This is just a video game. It will most likely have its flaws and imperfections, just like 99.9% of the video games that came before it.

And it's probably not gonna WOW you like the first time you played SotN. Not that it necessarily have to be worse than SotN - we don't know that yet - but it's going to be a metroidvania, and we've played soooo many of those since SotN came out. We know the deal already. Also, we're older now and less likely to be super impressed by things. I hope people realize this and don't expect GROUNDBREAKING INNOVATIVE NEWNESS!! But we never know with gamers today. Nothing is ever good enough for some of them.

Many of them are probably just desperately trying to recreate their own childhood but can't seem to hit that level of enthusiasm anymore. And it's fine and perfectly normal. Lower dat expectation, child!

I hear people saying Witcher 3 looks like "shit". Which only proves how unreasonable and impossible they are to please. Yes, it looks worse than it did in the trailer from 2013 but it's still a gorgeous game.

Some people will, without a doubt, hate on Bloodstained. It's just how things work. I'm lowering my expectations, not expecting "the best IGA game ever" cause that it not realistic. I hope it's on par with the GBA/DS games, but larger. And with some catchy tunes. Anything more than that is just a nice bonus  :D
