An upcoming 2D action platformer where you play a whipper warrior and will stop an evil cult from taking over the world. In their quest for domination, they kidnap your son to sacrifice his soul so they can summon a powerful creature known as Yaga. The game is a spiritual successor to Super Castlevania IV. Many of the mechanics like the 8 directional whipping and the continuous whip attack make a return. Some mechanics are the same, while others have been changed and enhanced. Additionally, you can sprint like in Symphony of the Night and shoot projectiles from your whip like in the GameBoy Castlevanias. Development of this game began on December 30th 2018. The end goal is to have a worthy "Supervania" successor. The game was made in 1991, it's mechanics were never replicated in any other game in the series, there was no remake and no indie game like it either. It's time this changed. The end goal is to have the game on Steam, GoG and hopefully Nintendo Switch.

It's been a while since I last wrote about my game.

A lot of progress has been made.

I'll just let the gifs do the talking (for the most part).


Enjoy!


1. There's a scrolling background now.

It has 5 layers (clouds are the 5th).

2. I also added some interactive trees.

3. Stage 1 will be a village.

house 2


So I made a few houses.

house 1


They cast shadow on you.

house 3


I also made an 'AgeOfEmpires'-esque tower.

4. Most enemies will have dismemberment physics.

Let me zoom that in for you:

This is a bird enemy from the tutorial stage.

5. Eventually I developed a throwing mechanic.

Initially, you could throw body parts as well.

throw head


But it looked ridiculous and made the FPS go way down.

throw body


Now you can only throw weapons. Limbs get destroyed.

kill stuff


Combat is still good fun though.


Thank you for making it this far. The article is almost over.

My recap is this:

What started as a game with the initial purpose of just recreating the eight directional whip of Super Castlevania 4, is now evolving into a brutal game of dismemberment and a mechanic which can use enemies as weapons.
