In his new work of art – available like an impression by Cook and Becker – Rapoza surrounds Simon Belmont with bosses and grisly enemies from the original Castlevania. I love the ornate details.
“I did not watch the original video game for my research – to me today a two-tone purple monster will seem silly to me, right? Like how scary is that at all? Yet when you dive into your nostalgic memory, the magic is still there, your interpretation of this world that was simply suggested to you by the game makers, ”he said. “Pixels only involve certain shapes, and you fill in the blanks with your imagination.”
You know a tribute piece is good when it makes you want to kick off a whole bunch of games. I wish Konami would do a lot of things, but at the top of the list, I wish Konami would do a lot of things. Castlevania.
