Just a tad more stuff was done.  Made the V stand out more so it doesn't look like a W lol.






Trying to think on what else to add without drowning anything with massive amounts of color by still keeping it simple and basic.  Almost made the rest of the Vania red and orange like the V but still not sure :)

Stuff on CoA is coming and going though need to ask Optomon at the end of the month on how he's doing on that and see how many more bosses I need to make.  BoS is on hold right now due to the editor being shitty and not doing on what Sephirous wants it to do let alone when he edits anything at the slightest the Castlevania 2 editor freaks out and won't accept the ROM at all.  I thought about inquiring around to see if anyone was willing to make a brand new editor for Castlevania 2 that's similar to reVamp but not sure if anyone would be dedicated in doing such a task.  I know that's a lot to ask for and time consuming though we are all in it for the long run as we haven't come this far on all of our projects for nothing :)

Ah that's good to hear that CoA is still going strong,as for BoS I can wait for the Mod because I know it'll take sometime for that Mod to be finished & ready,still I hope you & the others do a great job on the current projects you are doing,Im looking forward to playing them. :)

Your title looks great.
It still gives the impression of a W, but it's much more subtle now.
Kinda makes you wonder if it could be tied into some aspect of the story.
Speaking of which, do you have a plot yet?

Plot....not a clue.  You'll have to direct that question to Sephirous :)


I can change up the letter a tad so it doesn't give off the impression of a W ;)

If you wanted to do that I'd say round off the top of the d, and and make the left side of the V longer than the right.

You could also just put a space or a dash between Metroid and Vania.
So it'd rather be Metroid Vania or Metroid-Vania.

Goal is to have this as a play on words like the term Metroidvania but with a capital V in it :)






Should be a final posting of the title.  Hardy any changes except for the V and D change along with the shadow behind the M.  Last time I'll be posting this so I don't flood this thread with the title art :)






Later in the week I'll put it into a YYCHR sheet and send it over to Sephirous as tomorrow I'm going to begin working on the Stage 2 boss :)

Next boss up on the list.





Phantoon is going to replace Medusa and no it won't act the same manner either of how Medusa moves once that road is crossed  ;)

Cool stuff. Are you going to try to match what the Phantoon fight is like in M3 or try for something new?

Some time back I suggested to Sephirous to see about finding someone to make the fight kinda similar to that on Super Metroid but without the disappearing act.  I made the eye droplets to represent on falling and bouncing when hitting the ground.  I'm not really sure on what else can be done besides giving them a new appearance and having whatever programmer make them act as new boss battles with different motions.  Other plans for the rest of the stuff is all up to what Sephirous wants to do.




Just have to see on what else can be done :)

Definitely plan on doing lots of stuff with this.  Once Sephirous gets more things sorted I'll be passing more stuff his way for the lessers and such :)

Would be willing to share the Super Metroid-like Space Ship i recently painted for this Hack, in case you're interested.
Great things going on here! I'll stay tuned!

I'll message Sephirous about it and see if he has time to pop up on here to talk about it :)
