This is looking incredibly cool.  Will it be available on consoles?

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

SCHOLOMANCE
The fabled school of the devil

It's entrance lies hidden among the mountains surrounding Lake Hermannstadt, where aspiring disciples of Scholomance gather from all over the world.

Scholomance is composed of six different branches of dark magic. Rarely do students master more than one branch... only incredibly gifted students, such as Prince Vlad Dracula, have mastered multiple branches.

The six branches of Scholomance are as follows:

PYROMANCY: On the creation and manipulation of hellfire.

NECROMANCY: Animating and controlling the dead.

DEVIL'S ALCHEMY: On brewing deadly poisons and powerful medicine.

CONJURATION: Using portals to summon demons from the underworld.

SHAPE SHIFTING: On transforming one's body into that of an animal or demon.

WITCHCRAFT: Ancient dark magical arts that bend the will of nature.

The devil teaches these arts to his disciples so that they may spread his influence throughout the world. Many kings and emperors began their quest for power in the halls of Scholomance, and used the wicked arts to secure power and wealth.

yep, looks great.
However the dash bar is awkward.
It's such a wimpy dash that it makes no sense.
You should make it stronger with the ability to hit enemies, or change it into a tackle that can knock back the enemies.
If you want the player to use it only for faster movement, change it into a sprinting animation. That would make more sense, he would get exhausted after running as fast as he can for a few seconds.

The design of the dash comes from one of my frustrations with other Classicvanias- many times, I see an enemy attack coming, I immediately begin to move out of the way, but I get hit regardless because those games tend to have slow walking speed. However, I don't see the slow walk speed as a problem, I think its a fundamental part of why Classicvanias force the player to play in a more intentional and strategic manner as opposed to faster paced "twitch reflex" games, but regardless, it has its own set of flaws that I try to mitigate.

The dash will enable the player to move out of the way when you see an incoming enemy attack, but it cannot be spammed or abused enough for it to convert the game into a faster paced action game. Giving the player too much freedom with increased movement, like Maria in Rondo, will completely break the level and enemy design which was modeled after the slower paced, more methodical style of play from the Classicvanias that inspired this game.

All that being said, yes, I have though about dashing attacks, particularly for Dorin. It is an idea we are experimenting with, and it may make it into the game if it ends of pairing up well with other special attacks.

I find it quite amazing at how little one can put into pixel image and yet it comes out looking extraordinary! A work of art!
