“What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets.”
Today, Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi launched a new Kickstarter seeking funding for his latest project, a 2.5D “exploration-focused, side-scrolling platformer” titled Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.
In Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night you play as “Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist curse which slowly crystallizes your skin. You must battle your way through a demon-filled castle summoned by Gebel, your old friend whose body has become more crystal than flesh.”
Igarashi left Konami back in 2014. He will be developing the game with Inti Creates, which is one of the studios working on Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9. Igarashi and team are looking for $500,000 to make the game. As I write this the game sits at $319,438 (and rising). It’s easy to see that the game will meet its goal, but how much money will it raise ultimately?
For $28, you can get a digital copy of the game for PS4, Xbox One or Steam. The Kickstarter runs until June 12, so you’ll have till then to hop on the chariot and fight death.
