Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Hacked | A blog for updates, information, pics, videos, etc.
Being done by a guy named Esco, the mighty. He's been working on the project for about 4-5years. He started recompiling the binaries for the PSX version, but is now re-creating the entire game in GameMaker. It will be standalone and easy to run in windows. And it looks good.
The project is a rebuild and redesign of the original to make things harder. He's adding attacks for enemies, and also condensing the number of weapons to stop the endless duplication, while adding all sorts of weapons and different attacks.
Esco takes breaks sometimes, but the current site (his 4th or 5th home for the project) normally gets one or two updates a month. I don't agree with everything he's doing, but overall the project is awesome. Feel free to register and throw in some support
He's actually looking for some help on the sprites and other things, to cut down his own workload.
