Castlevania NKN - Release!

I hope you enjoy it.


Some final words

It's been a long time since I started this game. I first wrote the story and then made a mock up screen of the game with photoshop. I thought about making a quick simple game like the 8 bit era, but it just kept growing as the ideas were coming.

In the future I will change many things, as I've learned on the way. For example, the sprites came from the idea of making a simple game and I tried to emulate those in Circle of the Moon, but in time I wanted to upgrade the look of the game and many things had to be redone.

Even though the gameplay is aimed towards the classic style, the in-game action may be similar to the newer games, with a more agile character and a bit more chaotic, but the game can be beaten. There are some extras hidden in the game, including a boss rush mode and an art gallery.

Thanks and I expect this is not the last time I release a game.

This is where everything started

Yes, still coming

Mmmm, well yes. Project still alive.

Finishing the final artwork for the extras section and... some record keeping code and that's all.

So, what happened?

The game is still on. But several things on my personal life got on the way. Whatever the case, I have been working hard on it and it's almost done.

Every level, every cutscene and every boss have been finished.

I added some things that were not planned before:

-Boss Rush mode
-3 difficulty settings
-Stopwatch sub weapon (I thought it would be difficult)
-Challenges, achievements and hidden items
-Art gallery
-Some new attacks to enemies and bosses
-Improved a few animations and fx
-Balanced a lot of the gameplay

I'm currently working on finishing the extra modes and languages. A few other tweaks and it will be ready for launch.

For all out there

When will I finish this thing? I really hope it gets done soon. My job has kept me busy lately and I'm being sent to yet another country (4th one since I started with this game), but besides that, I am happy how it's turning out. It's mostly a straightforward Castlevania sidescroller experience, so I'm just worried about the replayability of it (all this work so you can finish it in a couple hours and never touch it again? ouch), but as long as it's played by anyone I'm okay with that. At least I will say this will be ready in 2012, so, coming soon.
