Within his latest Kickstarter update, Koji “IGA” Igarashi has revealed the lesser demons that will stalk the corridors in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.
His “gothic, exploration-focused action platformer” continues development after 64,867 backers pledged $5.5 million toward the project – which had far surpassed its initial $500,000 goal.
This month’s update sees IGA share “three minor enemy designs” in Seama, Dullahammer and Morte, as well as taking the chance to spotlight fan art and cosplay that the team has received. The lesser demons are outlined by IGA as below:
The demon parasite of the sea! Water monsters are always essential, but we wanted to do something unusual this time around—that’s why our sea monster influence was the humble jellyfish. It worked out well. But it’s so jiggly… it looks kind of delicious.
A headless knight that attacks by swinging its own head like a flail. I love the idea of really large minor enemies—the sheer size makes you feel like you’ve met a challenging opponent. The uni, or sea-urchin-like substance inside Dullahammer’s armor is an accent. He looks kind of delicious, too…
A lesser demon that lacks a corporeal form, this mud-like creature can’t hold its shape. If it could talk, it would probably yell something like, “Give me a physical form!” By the way, it doesn’t drop any skills. It’s a lesser demon, after all…
