Bloodstained has successfully been Kickstarted… ten times over

1 min read


The last time I wrote about Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, two weeks ago or so, the game had raised $3,000,000. That’s pretty damn impressive, especially considering that only $500 000 was required to get the game going in the first place (an amount it reached in a matter of hours). Now, the funding period has ended, and Bloodstained has raked in a whopping $5,545,991, more than ten times what was originally required.

What this means basically is that the game is going to be a whole lot better than originally intended. I mean, take a look at all these unlocked rewards thanks to the response from 64,867 backers (via Polygon):

Keep in mind that the reason Koji Igarashi went the Kickstarter route in the first place is because publishers turned him away, claiming that the market was not ripe for a game of this nature. Well, let’s just say he proved them wrong. The response to the project has been nothing short of amazing. In a thank you post, a video was shared, entailing dozens of pieces of fan art:

We’ll leave you with the video compilation we created for the end of the stream, which highlights just a fraction of the creativity, generosity, and support you’ve been showering us with for the past month. Enjoy — you did it!

People are genuinely excited. Now that the game they want so badly has been Kickstarted, they have one simple task to fulfil – wait for it to actually be developed. I wonder how long that’ll take?

Are you excited for Bloodstained? Were you one of the thousands of backers?

    I am one of the backers. First time ever I did this and it felt nice supporting a developer that I believe in and giving Konami the middle finger at the same time.

    I was so so so tempted to back this game, but real world problems arose (Getting married) so the budget is tighter than eskoms power supply.

      Congrats! Hope it works out well. The first 2-3 years are the hardest in my opinion. If you survive those, you should be golden!

        Thanks man! I been told that the first 2 – 3 years is the most difficult so ill push through! I do need a PS4 in those trying times though… and some good games like Bloodstained to keep some form of sanity ^_^
