The Man Behind Bloodstained Talks Konami And Kickstarter Pressure

Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night is a throwback to Castlevania games like Symphony of the Night. Judging from our hands-on time with it at E3, it’s shaping up into a pretty fun game. I had a chance to talk to Koji Igarashi, Castlevania’s producer and now head of Bloodstained’s development to talk design, female protagonists, and wine. On leaving Konami and adjusting to the pressure of Kickstarter: Koji Igarashi, Bloodstained producer: With Castlevania, I’d been working on a long-running franchise where fans knew more about the games than I did. With Bloodstained, the pressure that we feel isn’t much different. There’s still hardcore fans who know more that we do. That’s a good kind of pressure, not bad, and something that we always feel and have gotten used to. One thing that was challenging was creating material to show to backers for a new title. What we’re used to, especially in the Japanese industry, is sharing promotional material around three months before the release date to create hype. There isn’t always much hype after that. It can feel like you’ll run out of material to show people, and that’s been a challenge with Bloodstained. On differentiating Bloodstained READ FULL STORY…

E3 2017 – Laser League Preview – Watch Your Step (PS4)

There are few developers that I hold in higher regard than OlliOlli creators Roll7. The British game studio has nailed every idea its had so far, and have had a gorgeous look to all of its 2D titles. So, when I found out that they’d be announcing a new game at E3, I was psyched. Would it be a follow-up to Not A Hero, or their take on a 2D platformer? I couldn’t wait to see what they had up their sleeves. What I wasn’t expecting was a team-based multiplayer game with vibrant 3D graphics and a neon aesthetic that looks like Tron. To say this came totally out of left field from a consumer’s perspective would be an understatement, but I learned from founder Simon Bennett that the idea for Laser League had been kicked around the Roll7 offices for quite some time. It went from a 2D prototype that they’d occasionally show to other developers, and was something they’d slowly iterate upon on the side. Once they saw that other smaller indie studios were starting to have success with 3D games, they ended up adding to their staff, and decided to make their passion project a reality. While Laser League is very different from READ…

E3 2017 – Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Preview – Fun With Whips (PS4)

When I saw that Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night got delayed into 2018, I began to worry about legendary Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi’s latest project. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time that a major crowdfunded title, especially one that was pitched upon gamer nostalgia, ended up being a disappointing product. A disastrous release would not only be a bummer for Metroidvania fans, but also a major blow to crowdfunding in general. I’m not worried anymore, though. It only took a 20-minute demo of Bloodstained to make me feel pretty darn silly about having any doubts, as I walked away very impressed with IGA’s passion project. Not only does Ritual of the Night manage to capture the tight gameplay that made me fall in love with Castlevania games, it also has its own mechanics and aspirations. This isn’t a mere nostalgia play, but a game that is aiming to be the best that the genre has to offer. The initial part of the demo walked me through all of Miriam’s abilities as I worked my way through a castle setting. After learning how to jump and use my short sword to destroy enemies, it started showing off more advanced maneuvers such as spell casting. This is actually READ…

OlliOlli Developer Roll7 Announces Laser League, Watch the Reveal Trailer

OlliOlli and Not A Hero developer Roll7 is back with a new game, and it’s quite the departure from past offerings. Called Laser League, the game is a futuristic combat sport that has eight players battling it out in teams of four. Offering up online and local play, players will battle for control of nodes while attempting to avoid lasers. Here’s how Roll7 describes the premise: In Laser League, the exhilarating, high-octane contact sport of 2150, players battle against the opposition for control of nodes that bathe the arena in deadly light. Evading rival colored beams, teams attempt to fry their opponents with speed, strength and strategy. Special offensive and defensive abilities, as well as game-changing power-ups on the arena floor, provide an edge at the crucial moment. Like all great sports, it is accessible and immediately understandable, but rewards dedication with deceptively complex strategic possibilities. The first sneak peak at the gameplay can be seen below: [embedded content] Roll7 director Simon Bennett remarked upon the game’s very different visual style from previous titles. “It’s awesome to step outside of our ‘house style’ to develop a far bigger 3D experience that we think will redefine a genre,” said Bennett. “he READ FULL STORY…

Watch Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night’s E3 2017 Trailer

[embedded content] To celebrate its appearance at E3 2017, publisher 505 Games has released a brand new trailer for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The 2.5D platformer is one of the most highly anticipated indie games currently in development due to it being spearheaded by former Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi. Igarashi famously helped the classic Konami series find its footing by establishing the “Metroidvania” gameplay that made Castlevania: Symphony of the Night a classic title. The minute-long trailer shows that the 2018 release is coming together nicely. While the trailer isn’t very long, it manages to show off plenty of castle exploration and combat footage. The video ends by showing a bloody boss fight that’ll surely test gamer’s reflexes and pattern recognition skills. It looks like developer Inti Creates has something solid on their hands, and we’ll know more once E3 2017 officially rolls around next week. The Bloodstained E3 trailer wasn’t the only video recently released about crowdfunded action game. An interview talking to the technical director of DICO, one of the developers helping provide technical support on the game, was also put out on Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night‘s official YouTube channel.
