Foffy.

No worries I'm good at making games =)
I make them in the way I would like to play them.
And yes those questions have been asked earlier but I don't mind replying =)

Every town looks and feels different. Also some npc's have "soulsian" aspects, aka you will meet them again or some of them might die if you do some things differently.
Some towns even have their own event occurring and each have some plot aka story line encounters revealing life in that town.

Mansions all work differently like some clockworks platforming thingys, some are more tactical enemy defeating defeating. Each dungeon/mansion also has a boss.

Dying works the same as metroidvanias, you die game over, load saved game. Best mechanic so far ever invented for games.
Never ever liked respawn you lose nothing that way, that's the easy beginner mode video games thingy.
Same thing ruined diablo 2 compared to diablo 1 well also other factors, like non instant potions making you run arround enemies until full delaying progress for no good reason and the loss of horror atmosphere.

And yes no cliche ending with hand raising or even a grave. Most likely classic castlevania ending and few alt endings. Havent done those yet, currently remaking intro.

But thanks for asking, feel free to ask more you an also check out first post for changes compared to original, thou not all there.
You can also go hunting for screenshots of the game in the comments on some pages. Most of them old thou.

Unless we are back in the uni and I'm on an English exam I don't really care =)
Wrong forum for that I think. If you wish to have a discussion on writing try to find such topic or forum.
Even if you had Boo tell me to change my ways I would not. =D

But you should see me casual type in chat. You would prolly die from the amount of typos, etc I don't care to fix =)

Just to pop in to say this game is still being made.

Foffy, yeah I'm semi fine. Depression, stress, being poor and unemployment bringing me down but I think I can manage. Thanks =)



For cheering me up ill show you one of the intro pictures, missing animation in this and other sprites thou.

Cheers. Animated simon will stand on the cliff in the intro, his hair and clothes waving due to wind.
Uploaded another intro image, but wont upload no more so that everything is not spoiled.

And yes I'm still going to make a video about the game but as you know me everything is always late what comes to this game.
Maybe for Xmas (most probably not for Xmas).
