Fan-Art: Custom Shantae-themed Switch dock

Now here's a fan that's truly dedicated to Shantae! Patrick Braga is obviously a huge fan of Shantae, so much so that he gave his entire Switch a Shantae makeover! Just looking at this design is making me super jealous!

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Kickstarter update - WayForward involvement, Cyhyreath enemy detailed

Two big tidbits of info in today's Bloodstained Kickstarter update. Check out the full post below!

For this month's update, we have an incredible support who will be joining the Bloodstained team. Can you guess who? It's WayForward!

That's right, WayForward, the makers of Shantae! As you may already know, they are top-tier when it comes to side-scrolling action games. There is even a staff member who previously worked on one of my projects, which is incredibly encouraging.

In consideration of their past achievements, WayForward will be helping the development team realize my vision for this game. Maybe I am even more excited than everyone else - with their help Bloodstained will become an even better game.

We also have some new enemy concept art to show you. This is Cyhyreath.

Cyhyreath first appears to be crouching on the floor. Once the player approaches her, she will fly around and make a death shriek to attack the player.

It's a traditional gothic horror design, and I think it's lovely.

I was talking with the team just before writing this comment and, with WayForward's help, they have been busy helping to improve the game and fix any bugs that pop up.

Speaking of which, there's a really tough one that’s making the game crash that needs to be fixed before the game reaches everyone, so we are scything through them all.

Thank you, everyone, for your continued support!
