“Through recondite arts, the Alchemists had created Shardbinders.”
The fruits of substantial crowdfunding and the labour of a supergroup of game devs were harvested in 2019 with the release of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The spiritual successor to the original ‘IGAvania’, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night arrived to relieved fans and some critical acclaim, along with its stretch goal pseudo 8-bit appetiser, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. Leon, Brian, Jon and Leah have all completed both titles and are keen to talk about them, assisted brilliantly as usual by members of the Cane and Rinse community.
Music featured in this issue:
1. Fallen Moons Requiem (Curse of the Moon) by Michiru Yamane, Ippo Yamada, Aoi Takeda, Takumi Sato, Hiroaki Sano, Ryo Kawakami and Ryo Yoshinaga (Curse of the Moon)
2. Autumns Desolation (Ritual of the Night) by Michiru Yamane, Keisuke Ito and Ryusuke Fujioka
