Castlevania - Requiem For a Dream (SOTN Sequel) - [IN DEVELOPMENT]
#1
Hello ppls!

Around one year ago, i started a project. This project is more than a simple game for me. Its a Dream. A dream to play a new story from the best 2D Plataformer Action RPG already released. Nothing after that game makes me happy. This is because all games now are based in only in the pretty 3D graphics and NOTHING of gameplay, and Nothing about history.

Im Web Developer, more than 10 years of computer programing. This game is in development in XNA plataform. Because my Job, Family and real life things, im stoped this work, for a time. But now IM BACK.

Well, lets talk about the game.

Realease Plataforms:
PC / XBOX 360
Type of Game
Plataformer Action RPG - 2D
Number of Players
Single Player
Realease DATE: 10/08/2012

Now, u guys, maybe asking to your self:
Q - "What this guy is talking?"
A - Im talking about Castlevania - Requiem For a Destiny. A Sequel to SOTN, with of course, Alucard as Main Playable character.

All history already writed, all gameplay already decided. The Engine is already Writed, using a combination of XNA and Farseer Physics.

Im already get all sprites from here (THANK U COMMUNITY, as BadBatman3, SMITHYGON and Others). Im in fase os resample/refactoring of this sprites. Im upscaling that to x2 and making good result with Alien Blow Up PhotoShop Plugin.

Examples:
Original:

Resampled With PhotoShop Resize

Resampled With Blow Up

Scenario Already Resampled, and builded with Map Editor.

Now I have around one year to put all togheter and makes all things work. Im stopped to update my blog, because its more one thing to waste my precious time. IM focused on this, and nothing will be stoped me now.

Cheers, and Im keep the journal in this topic.


PS.: Sorry for my english!

let me tell you that I totally dislike the HD graphics. It makes the sprite blurry and undefined, completely the opposite of what HD graphics are supposed to do.

if you want to have good HD sprites then you should:

1-keep the graphics as it is in-game;
2-manually add pixels to make it smooth.

But well, I do look forward to its completion.

Thank u for the feedback. But its not my intention to make a CASTLEVANIA HD game. Its just to ajust from 320x240 Original resolution to 640x480. Its just a Upscaling. Im not a spriter. Just a developer.

Is the Xbox really a good idea?

I'm not under the impression that there's a huge field for people who play indie games that are available only through hacked Xboxes.

Yeah, you can't sell this, so there's no way for you to get it onto the 360.

jtag xbox 360s can run unsigned code, and I know a number of people who have them. They are worth their weight in gold, since they are rare, but the community is very much looking for new content daily.

I'd like to think that you would come up with a good name though - since you've actually just proven that you're ripping off Requiem for a Dream's name in the title of this topic, while in the topic calling it Requiem for a Destiny and I think that RfaD doesn't really roll off the toungue like most Castlevania titles.

On our friend's settee, she told me that she really liked me
And I said, "Cool... the feeling's mutual"
We played old 45's, and said it's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said, "True, it's not unusual" - then privately we danced
We couldn't seem to keep our balance... A drunken haze had come upon us

We sank down to the floor, and we sang a song that I can't sing anymore
And then we kissed, and fell unconscious...
I woke up the next day, all alone but for a headache
I stumbled out to find the bathroom...
But all I found was her, wrapped around another lover
No longer then is he our mutual friend

I don't think you understand.

You can't sell this. You don't own the rights to Castlevania, so you can't legally sell this, no matter what.

But i Will not Sell. I only will make a ISO for download. IF this iso only will run on XBOX 360 "unblocked", this is not with me.
