The gian rat with all those eyes is pretty awesome. I am really eager to see all those December surprises! keep up the good work!
Hey guys, I remember pledging some money a year or two back. I have kept up on the updates and just keeping in contact so I can ensure that this game can be sent to my house when it's good and ready. A lot of work has been put into this, and I know people want to make darn sure. So I'm still waiting. That's all.
Hoping for that surprises and... YES! Thank you very much for the appearance change depending of wish weapon or armor Myriam are wearing... this type of games always reduce cost (i think?) with no changes in this matters. So you are the best!
Happy Holidays! to de community and all the team behind this master peace jeje
@Jimtendo32 Thank you very much for your support and your kind words, both mean a great deal to us all. We're definitely working super hard to make sure we deliver and make good on the faith you and everyone else (including me, I backed too! lol) has placed in us. Much love right back at you. :)
So proud to have backed this from the start. All the way through the updates on this project have been excellent and everything has been handled extremely professionally by Iga and the team, thank you to all involved for all the hard work you've put into this and providing us the opportunity to be a part of the development. Much love. xoxo
@Mark Winiarski Hey there, we definitely know that everyone is anxiously awaiting a release date, we have one internally, but are just holding onto it for now as its reveal is part of the marketing campaign, try to hang in there! :)
@Denny Thanks for the kind words! We're definitely working hard!
@Kelly Overholser We hear you, all I can say at the moment is...stay tuned...
@Benjamin Vandergrift and @Donnicton ArtPlay is actually working with 505 Games as a publisher, (that's me!) and the crunch mode isn't about some evil overlord cracking the whip (pun intended) but more so an unfortunate side effect of wanting to get things *just* right when you're working on art / creative products.
@Brian Definitely feel you, and we'll keep updating the KS community here with our monthly updates, and will look into including a "social media wrap up" or something into future updates... :)
@Michael Osgood No the customization pieces are all separate of each other, so you're free to customize as you like! :D
Thank you everyone again for your support and passion, I know we say it a lot, but we mean it and never get tired of saying it!
More monster updates, please!
this rat monster really disgusts me. i hate rat, and i even can't see that over 2 seconds. wish it could be removed at the last version.
@Thaddeus When the delay was first announced, Koji stated that the delay will be a year or so long.
@Mark W. huh? The campaign page says the original delivery date was march 2017. So, yes, very, very late, but that's 9 months, not 12-18 months. Still, you're absolutely right in that not giving updated estimates is kinda disappointing; we're effectively the producers, so it's totally understandable to be frustrated to get vague marketing statements that the general public gets instead of actual progress reports.
"In this next month expect tons of announcements, reveals, teases and more than one enormous surprise that I think will have a good chance at blowing you away."
Between that and the "crunch period", it sounds a lot like the release date is coming up very soon; marketing is kicking into high gear, and they wouldn't be doing that if the release of a solid, polished product wasn't close (I mean, this isn't Hello Games). I'd hazard a guess that the release date announcement and the actual release date will be very close together (days/weeks, rather than months), as well, but that's maybe wishful thinking and putting too much emphasis on what it would take to "blow me away". :-P
Looks awesome! take your time with the game, i am looking forward to it :)
OK, so we gave you a year/year and a half extension on the game...when is the new release date being announced?
Please make lots more outfits! Maybe stats and bonus abilities on some of them. Would love to have an Alucard type outfit that you can find and wear. Maybe even ones from previous games. Hell, make them DLC if its a question of budget.
Looks really nice! Though I'm curious if there's going to be new dresses for Miriam to wear as well. ...Not that I'm asking for something like a bunny girl outfit to go with the headband, not at all >.>
"Miriam Fashion Show" made me chuckle.
Oooh meido and glasses. Can we get twin braids or twin pigtails hairstyle too?
Any release date yet
I'm sure this goes without saying, but if you're going to have equipment change Miriam's looks, then separate "equipment" and "appearance" slots would be a nice feature to have.
We are dying to play the game but please.. take all the time in the world you need. In IGA we trust to give us another masterpiece!
I'm with Donnicton. Crunch mode isn't a badge of honor, nor do I believe it should be expected, as implied by "in its crunch period."
On a more positive note, I appreciate the regular updates and effort being put into keeping the community in the loop.
The kicking art piece reminds me of Chun-Li from Street Fighter.
"Currently, the development is in its crunch period—right now we're working on some important bosses. There is no holiday for us, but we will do our best! See you all soon!"
Take a holiday, guys. There's no reason to be in crunch like this when the only people you need to answer to are backers. That sort of nonsense should end at publisher-oversight games.
Looks great! Did you guys change the Miriam model? For some reason it looks a whole lot better now! And I thought it already looked pretty good before!
I've wanted this kind of detail regarding equipment for years while the classic Castlevania series was still active! I'm really glad to see it happening in the series' successor.
Very cool. :)
Also wanted to request, please be sure to update us here on Kickstarter with anything you have to share, even if it's just one giant wrap up at the end. For those of us who are light on social media followings. :) Thanks!
God, I love that attention to detail...
Shiny! Is the hair style linked to the head piece she is wearing, or does that change independently?
