Are you interested in seeing a Grant-like character in CN? Short range, fast attack speed, plus a few other special abilities...

That would definitely offer a variety to the playstyles available

I started letting some close friends test play CN, and I’m starting to see some problems with the difficulty balance. These guys are having a really hard time getting through the demo. At the same time, none of these guys are big Castlevania fans.

I’m interested to see how hardcore Castlevania fans fare on their first attempt through the level. I need a couple of people from this forum to record their first and second play through so I can study it from a game design perspective. I have Jop on board so far, if anyone else is interested in sending me a video recording of their first play through, let me know. I want to watch these videos and make some adjustments before I make a formal public release of the demo.

Also, guys like Jop know how to record high quality gameplay footage, but for those that don’t know how to record gameplay footage and are still interested in helping, I would be okay with poor quality video, such as recording your computer monitor with your cell phone camera or whatever. It just needs to be clear enough for me to see what’s going on.

I'll do it, but I don't have screencap tools available. I do have a stabilized camera, so I could set that up and try and get the best picture.

Okay, that would be fine. I'll send you the PM sometime within the next few days. Just a heads up, it's not ready for release, so you will probably encounter some bugs, but it should be stable enough for you to go through it a few times without incident.

One more thing! The controls aren't the best with an analog stick at the moment, I still need to change a few things. Use of a d-pad is highly recommended!

I've been using a keyboard for years, so I should be fine lol.

That will work, and you can customize your keys with the launcher.

Got some feedback from Jop, it seems the game isn’t too difficult at all for Castlevania fans.

I saw some graphical bugs in the videos he sent that I need to fix. I think I’ll be ready for a bigger, but still limited release of the demo for Castlevania Dungeon members within a week, but hopefully less.
