WHAT IS DRACULA'S CURSE ?

Dracula's Curse is a Castlevania inspired Side Scroller Action game. It features the same gameplay as Castlevania, but with different environments, enemies, and soundtrack with an unique art style.

"Dark Creatures are invading the world, led by count Dracula himself. Resurrected after hundreds of years, he returns for revenge on humanity! Only a mighty warrior could face such vile monsters.

The year is 1282, Dracula's castle emerges in Malbork, spreading the chaos further. You are Kacper Bronislaw II, descendent of a legendary Vampire hunter. You wield the blessings of the Gods and the Holy Mace of  Abolition (Zarazy), forged by an angel warrior.
You accept your destiny as vampire hunter and set out on an adventure to kill Count Dracula. Only you can stop Dracula!"

WILL THE GAME BE SOLD ?

No. I want the game to be free. Its my first game, I want people to experience it and give me feedback so I can improve and learn from this so I can become a better developer. Maybe in the future I'll make a paid game, but this will be a Free game.

However, on release, you can pay $2 to receive a Special Edition with concept arts and designs. And soundtrack will be released on Bandcamp. If you want to support me, that'd be a very much appreciated way!

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RELEASE ?

Hopefully less than 12 months. The Gamemaker license expires in 12 months, and I don't plan to take forever with the game. Before it expires I should be done with it and ready to release.

HOW CAN I GET UPDATES ABOUT THE GAME ?

Following me on twitter (@RayRayHorsie) will give you updates about the game and news about it's progress.

Weapon and Sub-Weapons:

ALL SPRITES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. NONE OF THE IMAGINES BELLOW ARE DEFINITIVE.

Holy Mace of Abolition (Zarazy):

Crafted by an angel warrior, Zarazy is a mace made for slaying demons. Only a true Vampire hunter can wield such weapon. Zarazy is the default attack, causing 1HP damage on enemies. You will be able to upgrade the Mace with thunder from the gods, improving the damage.


Holy Cross:

Unleash the power of Christ by throwing the Holy Cross at monsters. It causes 2HP Damage on enemies. It phases through enemies. Only two crosses can be thrown at once.


Wine Bomb:

Vampires and demos are weak to fire. A bomb made out of wine and fire can do the trick. It causes 10HP on enemies on touch (0.14HP per frame). It phases through enemies. Only one Wine bomb can be used at a time.


Spear:

A quick projectile shot of a spear that pieces through enemies. Straight projectile that causes 2HP damage on enemies.
