The first thing I thought while playing "Resident Evil: Village" was how much it reminded me of "Castlevania", so I thought I'd make a mash up of the two. I chose the first level of the original "Castlevania" for NES, mixed in with the Castle Dimitrescu section of "RE: Village".

Is this playable on a Mac

No, only on PC


What a fun little game, I truly enjoyed myself and was very impressed.  Thank you for the opportunity to play your game.



nice game

how to connect controller?

i tried both a ps4 and xbox controller nothing happened


Hi Oco! Would like to talk to you about a possible job/hiring, could you find me on Twitter @b33feth?

Thank you!

Such a great game. Loved the sound design, and gameplay. My only regret is that there is only one level, and there isn't more. All I can say is, I want more. 

Downloaded, saved to drive, clicked on EXE file, will not start.

Awesome game!

Very cool and atmospheric game.

It has a good effect for controlling. But the player is too strength. If I am the maker, I would give some constraint about the weapon. I think good that one time has one weapon.

A bit late of this game...

Huge fan of both series especially the retro style

Awesome sprite work especially for Lady D

DISCULPA,,,El juego ya esta completo?......ERES GENIAL,MUCHO EXITO🙇‍♂️🙏👌✔

It was really cool to play RE8 in a new style. The environments and characters look awesome and the new mechanics are super creative.

Wow! It looks very cool and sophisticated, Resident Evil in pixel art is something out of the ordinary!

I loved this.  Wish it could have been longer.

Error when trying to download the Itch.io App version. No game type is select-able, when trying to install the game drop down is blank.

The Windows download version is... I'll pass. The game does immediately switch over on controls to gamepad as soon as touch a button on that that's plugged in so that's cool. I noticed you gave the player 999 to work with at start. I can see why too. The difficulty is way unbalanced. Honestly if you planned to give the player that many lives at start, why not just make them infinite? Also the lack of checkpoint in the first section makes it a pain when you die to the first boss. I'd rather play the original version of the RE:8. Sorry.

Prior statements were my personal take on the game. Please be aware people like and dislike different things.

Artwork looks great! Just wondering if you would consider selling the artwork as an asset pack.  I understand if not, since it's part of your game.  However, I would definitely buy it, if you sold it and allowed commercial use.  All of your art is wonderful!

<span class="ng-star-inserted" <this="" game="" is="" amazing!="" <="" span=""></span>

Ce jeu est génial! Ce pixel art en hommage a castlevania est incroyable.

Vivement un jeu complet.

This game is awesome ! This pixel art tribute to castlevania is amazing.

I can’t wait for a full game.

Congrats !

nice game

I am a big fan of castlevania and I would say that the game is beautiful, it is aesthetic, the movement of the characters is fluid and the dynamics I like, the only one but it would be to adjust the colliders a bit and be able to customize the controls, but the rest is perfect ( by the way I am a Spanish speaker and I used google translator, so if something is not understood I apologize)

Good game!, if you put in steam i buy it, i cant buy this time because i dont have pay pal :c, but its a superb clasicvania i like it a lot

I loved this fan tribute! Thanks for taking two very good franchising them and welding them together in a way that was fun to play and incorporated key elements from both franchises (I myself had to laugh at myself because I fell for the old Castlevania habit of accidentally replacing my desired weapon with a weapon I DIDN'T want, which is something I think every Castlevania player has done at least once). Seriously though I only have good things to say about this project. I loved the graphics, because it helps new gamers who have perhaps played RE 8 get a feel for the style and challenges of playing a classic NES Castlevania game. The gameplay was smooth and fluid, and the boss proved formidable and, even for such a short game, merits some replay value. I would DEFINITELY play a full length version of this game, so if you're even remotely considering further development of this, I encourage you to proceed! Thanks for your hard work!

Great tribute! My gameplay: 

Just beat the game today hope there will be lomger version of this game soon

Awesome Game!!

con una estética hermosa, y una jugabilidad interesante. creo que es de los demos mas pulidos que he jugado. 

REVania is a well crafted game with excellent level design. The difficulty is not overly challenging, but fair for veteran and casual players. Highly recommend. Can't wait to see what this developer cooks up next.

This is realy good

Palying the game still didn't beat yet, but safe to say it's awesome, the combat is interesting and the AMMO gathering system it's pretty creative cuz it drives me to pay more attention to the cenario and backgrounds of each level, i think it needs a fell tweaks here and there for an example i think the slash atack could be a lil faster as well as the jump could be that and a lil higher i think, but overall great game, yhou really created an ambiance when entering the levels, and the hidden stuff is super well hidden but it gives me a good feeling when i found them (Also the boss been icking my ass).

Great work! <3

congrats on the ign video give you a bit of publicity when i saw your name in the thumbnail i was like sickkk you know how to make a visually striking / fun game should probably make a full release like this can tell it has a audience just got to do it without the i.p's


I haven't played it yet, but it's already interesting just from watching the video. 

It's crazy that a game like this is free.
