A downloadable game for Windows

Remake of Castlevania in unreal, that i've been hammering away at for the past.. well a year now.

11.11.2016

finally got a C&D from Konami.
they've allowed me to keep the files up for now, but all development and updates must be ceased.
there's a small glimmer of hope though, Jay from Konami UK will do what he can to see if it's possible to get an official license.

update 07.11.2016

fixed dogs getting stuck when jumping.

fixed climbing issues on some blocks

improved heavy fall stun effect, to make it more like the original.

added medusa boss with placeholder, endlevel pearl etc.

did more adjusting of light on level 1.

fixed some pickup sounds that had gotten broken due to bug with unreal parent->child relationship.

adjusted lights on candles, which should improve framerate.

created a normal map for the bossbat on level 1.

bat should no longer pass through wall on level 1.

adjusted the wallchicken wall, it should now break like in the original.

adjusted platform movement. they now move on a sine curve like the original.

added pause menu help screen. press enter to see it.

Update 31.10.2016

framerate is now massively improved in certain areas.

the culprit was dynamic lights from particle effects on chandeliers on the roof.

i made those lights static, and turned off the particle effects, and i'm now able to run those areas at over 30 fps on my laptop with a geforce GTX 860M with no loss of visual fidelity. the middle section of level 1 however has temporarily become a bit of a performance hog however, due to some testing i'm doing with deferred decals, so the laptop is struggling with those areas.

i'll probably have to bake down those areas into textures instead or something. whip control has also been improved quite a bit. but i think i'll work some more on that still. level 1 has been shortened a bit to conform more with the originals size. particularly the begin area was too long. i've also brightened up a few spots here and there, and proofed myself from an unreal bug which causes child blueprints to sometimes reset all values for no reason.

oh and i added a 32-bit download. no guarantees that it will run well on such old machines though.

is there anyway for this to work on an android tablet? or anyway i can get this game for someone whos not a very good software person? ill even pay

I'll pay too.

Pretty neat so far, screw Konami though, pricks.

What happened with Konami and this game? Did you get the license or no.

Game will not install for me. dont know why. running Win10 with 12Gig of ram and 8550 Mobile Graphics

is there any news about the C&D,,, Konomi is like that I hear. Much like Nintendo they want eveything to be theirs forever, even if its abandoned or statis-ware

So what's the status on that Konami deal? Did Jay help you?

Just now i came up this game. Gotta say, it looks great and plays quite fair being under development. Runs smooth framerate btw, and i can play with my xbox360 controller for windows just fine, only stairs gives some troubles. Did you know that the music is loud, as loud it almost breaks itself? Maybe too much amped or something. None the less, this game looks nice and plays nice, kudos! PS. Its too shame, that konami seized this, i was looking forward to see the finished game. Oh well, maybe someday?

Why would they want to stop u...!!!! This is great so far..

Konami requires the Castlevania name only be used on pachinko machines. #FucKonami

I love it and really hope Konami stops the C&D and help the developer (dejawolf) to finish the game, I love Castelvania games from the NES and SNES and the Game Boy but on the PC they have never felt as fun.

This game is hitting all the marks, The animation has a kind of macabre stop monition feeling, the sound and music is very good and the lighting, the colors and effects are very lush and in the correct style for the franchise.

Awesome! but I think you can add a setup for graphics. My Geforce 820m struggles a lot with this T_T

Wow! this is really good, Ima have to make a youtube video on it if you don't mind!

When will you do the next levels?

When will you do the next levels?

Hi !
Could you release a linux version ? Unreal Engine 4 supports it.

Thanks !

I have a Steam Controller; Jumping, Pausing & moving all work which I am amazed. Now, attacking does not work on the Steam Controller. I'm using the Steam Controller for everything but then to use my Whip, I have to press K on my keyboard. Is there a way to program/reconfigure the buttons from keyboard to the Steam Controller? I don't see any options. Any help with this?

"JoytoKey" and "Xpadder" allow you to map any Keyboard buttond and even Mouse movement to a Gamepad

Take my money.

simply go to this page from your web browser

https://dejawolf.itch.io/castlevania-1-remake

and download the 32bit and thats it

I cant unpack the firts part. My rar opener says it cant be opened because it could be damaged

idk what's wrong, but it doesn't install. i tried part 1 & 2. the install button never rurns to play.

Why do you not simply rename this game and its characters to something else that's not copyrighted?

Easy way to turn a passion into a profit. Listen to this advice.

Hi dejawolf, I want to try this game but I have download issues with the rar files. I'm not sure if I have a network problem since I could download other files. I'm wondering if you have like a cloud file for this one. Thanks in Advance. :)

The game looks awesome. And at least as far as im concerned, Konami can go suck a bag of d**ks. Keep up the great work.

This game is super impressive! Huge Castlevania fan here so I'm really sad to read about the C&D. I too have worked on a fan remake that the got the old C&D treatment. Really sucks. Glad to read that Konami sees that there's at least a conversation to be had there though. I hope your talks go better than mine did. Regardless though, you've done something really impressive here. Quite a feat.

I have a error: Out of video memory trying to allocate a rendering rosource. Make sure your video card has the minimum required memory, try lowering the resolution and/or closing other applications that are running. Exiting...

I have: windows 7, intel core i5, 64 bit,

Please help

what's your video card/graphics card?

Intel(R) HD Graphics Family

intel HD is far from good enough to run it properly.

I updated the drivers and it works but jams.

You can also add a start-up screen.

I can not download, access denied

that's strange, just checked, and there was no issue for me.
