Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night received an unexpected free update recently for Steam, GOG, PS4 and Xbox. November 10th brought two pieces of content, the chroma wheel customization option and a new playable character. Bloodless is a fan favorite character, but is she fun to play?
Leave it to the combo of Kickstarter and indie developers to bring gamers another original, interesting, if not polarizing game concept in Romancelvania. Coined "Dracula meets the Bachelor", this gaming convection of genres coming from a slew of industry veterans aims to fill a void that Metroidvania and RPG fans were unaware existed. Developer The Deep End Games has made pretty good progress in meeting their $200k funding goal over the last month and with only 3 days left in the campaign, this is crunch time for fans of quirky Metroidvania titles and just creative game design in general to consider helping put a stake through the heart of the remaining $70k.
2013's Rogue Legacy was an instant classic and it's no surprise that Cellar Door Games is looking to bring fans another dose of family dysfunction and rock solid 2D exploration in 2020. The developers just dropped a rather quirky trailer to announce that Early Access is right around the corner.
Bloodstained and Castlevania fans alike have been waiting patiently for news on a release date of Koji Igarashi's brand new title after leaving Konami.

Probably not many, but after stumbling upon the Kickstarter campaign for Nakawak, I can't help but be impressed by the lone developers attempt at creating a GameBoy inspired Metroidvania title coming to Steam hopefully sooner than later.
To be released on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, Necrocosmos is bringing a new spin to the Metroid formula, introducing survival elements with a splash of randomized progression. Put simply, players will be challenged to explore multiple planets with unique environments and inhabitants, but the developers claim that progression will be randomly generated from player-to-player. An ambitious idea that I hope can be delivered upon. Check out our review of the Kickstarter campaign and demo.

Inexistence is proof that even a mostly average and almost completely derivative game can still provide an enjoyable if not particularly memorable experience. I had a great time with this title, but for the life of me I can't describe the vast majority of levels, bosses, or events that drive the gameplay along. Combat Sword … Continue reading Inexistence Review
Quality Metroid clones don't come around everyday and Xeodrifter, even for it's flaws, is one of the most fun I've experienced. For some the 10 dollar price tag and relatively short 3-4 hours worth of gameplay might be off putting, but Xeodrifter provides an unoriginal, but enjoyable few hours of exploring various alien worlds while … Continue reading Xeodrifter Review
