It’s already a matter of time before Konami will catch wind of this new fan-fame based on Castlevania called Castlevania: The Lecarde Chronicles 2. Once their lawyers sniff up this project real good they’ll be sending cease and desist letters faster than Trump can grab up any stray pussy… cats at the Miss America pageant.
Before the game gets stricken from the net, you may want to download the game as quickly as possible. You can get a hold of a digital copy for Windows over on the official Mig page.
You can check out some of the gameplay courtesy of YouTube user Shadowserg, to get an idea of what the game is like.
The game combines the classic Castlevania role-playing experience with side-scrolling platforming and hack-and-slash action.
There’s the traditional compendium of information for each of the bad guys you’ll encounter, various NPCs you meet throughout the journey, and a variety of weapons you’ll be able to rack up during the journey.
Fan-games haven’t been getting a lot of love from the big corporate publishers lately, but it looks like the developers in this case followed the advice of Woolie from TwoBestFriendsPlay.
That’s right. If you’re working on a cool fan-made project that requires a lot of time and effort, and it’s the sort of super awesome project that fans absolutely adore, then please shut the f**k up about it and wait until it’s finished. Let it out in the wild and disappear into the darkness to avoid having any C&D’s sent your way. Years after the legal heat dies down then you can emerge and claim credit for it.
But ultimately, don’t go parading around the super awesome game before it’s finished because otherwise people won’t get to play it… like what happened with the Unreal Engine 4 remake of the original Metal Gear Solid. It would have been pretty awesome to play that one had it actually been finished, but alas the project creators shot off at the mouth early and now we’ll never get to play the original Metal Gear Solid remade in Unreal Engine 4.
Anyway, the Castlevania: The Lecarde Chronicles 2 is complete. So you can go ahead and download it, and if Konami decides to shut it down, at least it’s already done and already out in the wild.
