I have a critique for the living flame enemy. I suggest not using a black outline if at all possible.
In fact any enemy that is, shall we say, energy based (?) should not use a black outline as doing so will make them pop better IMO.


Everything is being redone.  There won't be any enemies from Castlevania 3 seen in AoC.

One of the reasons main reasons why the re-designs are going through multiple revisions has to do with stages. A stage with a blue background might make a blue enemy harder to see, so were developing enemies along with their stages to keep everything visible and stylistically consistent. :)
Also worked on the point numbers and shrank the AoC sub title to fit into the original's space in the CHR

I have to say now that I have gotten a chance to really play Bloodstained RotM, I'm very open to having a CV game with unique monsters designed in a completely different style.
So I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with.

Looks promising. I would really like to see this hack being designed around the improved controls with inertia hack being included by default.

I can confirm that many of the improvements the controls hack gave CV3 have been implemented
(and a few more quality of life feature's are planned on top of them) ;)

When Dragoon first had the project, he called his style SotN 8 bit.  He use to have an exact style like me as I taught him how to sprite.  Not sure when he picked it up but that's what he got.

Here's his Sonia sprite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqxuSA_7PNQ

Compared to mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Cip5WjRWrk


We recently picked up a wonderful sprite artist that has something extremely similar in style so every enemy and boss can be rendered to the 'SotN 8 Bit' thing  :thumbsup:



I could never do his style as it messes with my OCD  :D





Toffi and myself will keep you all updated on future updates  :thumbsup:

I agree with DavidtheIdeaMan!  That is really really cool!  Seeing the sketches of the enemy behavior is so fascinating.  Can't wait to see how it turns out!  :)

Here's another awesome design from emco! This is the water spirit N√łkken, its a Scandinavian shape shiftier that loves to fool people who wander into it's territory by transforming into something that looks harmless before dragging their victims into a watery grave. Rumors state that screaming their name will outright kill the little tricksters, so don't forget it!

Nice! Very creepy looking. Kinda reminds me of the seaweed monster in this one episode of One-Punch.
