Had to dig around for this thread lol.
Umbral Genesis is still alive and well. Had to stop working on it due to remodeling parts of my home and getting things for the winter (some places up north of me already got freaking snow...)
Optomon has joined my team to work on Umbral Genesis. He'll begin working on things in and around CoA or when his time allows it once all of my stuff is done. He is also going to fit Snake's Revenge sound engine into Castlevania by using and utilizing RetroRain's MMC5 patch as that will give us plenty of room to add extra things besides a full new sound engine. I really am aiming for this to become the worlds first Castlevania with a new sound engine or at least from what I know though if it isn't the first then X number in line
Music wise, nesfan and Sxion are working on things around their busy schedules so music is going slow but at a steady pace
Hoping to get things done in a few week's time so I can start focusing on this project once more
