sorry for multipost, don't ban me pls
I noticed that Imageshack broke all my image links (including my avatar). I reuploaded them to Imgur, so it won't happen again.
Small update on the game (I know it's been a long time, right?)
First of all: the project isn't abandoned! It's just on some ridiculous hiatus, because reasons. I'm studying right now, so I don't have much time to develop it and another problem is that I started making too many games (some of them long before Mariovania), so it's hard time to distribute time over all of them, and I don't like scrapping good ideas.
The progress status looks like this: game is finished to the point, where there's final boss made and even ending cut-scene (sort of). All enemies are done (need polishing though), and map layout is placed, including all items. Although I need to slightly rework some areas, as for example, slide upgrade is currently useless. Pretty all items are implemented too, but I may add something.
What I'm currently working on is a secret boss, which you will have to face numerous times if you want to get 100%. After I finish him, I'll have to finish a playthrough with my "legit testing character" and polish the details I think should be done better.
Then I may eventually release next version (almost full this time) and work on additional features like Boss Rush and fix all the errors testers may report (though judging from number of posts in this topic...). Anyways, there's another important issue, namely the look of Castlevania. It currently uses a random sprite found on Google Image (now you know the truth, sorry...). I will try to use my skills to shape it into legit castle, taking the real layout into account. Then the game will be finished.
Last thing I may do is to go through all the graphics and redraw them in a consistent style. The problem is, I'm not good in drawing in certain style and redrawing everything from scratch in my own style... I doubt it will happen. So either graphic upgrade won't take place or some good spriter here will contribute
That sums up the future of this project. This of course when I start working on it again, which will happen eventually™
Hope you don't mind necroing and multibumping this topic. There's no reason to make a new one.
