This might be a dumb question, and also the wrong place to ask it, but since I do not know where else to ask I might as well do it!
I wasn't aware that I had to confirm my address again after the first address confirmation oh so long ago, and I only found out I had to do it a few days ago. I think I confirmed my address on June 17th or so. Since I chose the physical Switch version I am unsure of whether or not my copy of the game was shipped alongside all the other ones in time for the 25th. I am assuming my copy will be delayed because of my inability to confirm my address in time? Is there any way for me to know?
OwloftheNight98: And on the case of Robert, in his defense, the church in that time period set a new standard for self-righteous a**holes, and I say that as Christian.

purifyweirdshard: As an organization in Iga's games, they've generally been more on the fictional side than historical

dareka: It's a bit more complicated than that. The church comes off as fictional in pretty much all Japanese games because there's nothing like it over there, so they don't really understand what it is. Their closest reference is 20th Century Imperial Japan.

purifyweirdshard: Yeah, Iga told me as much in person (about how they don't really understand it etc). It's almost like an interesting mythological thing/hook for character designs and plots.

purifyweirdshard: I always appreciate seeing it portrayed well though, or at least with people on both sides of it (good religious people and bad religious people)

dareka: Methinks I'll be doing a thread on the topic soon...

Redogan: Just saw another trailer for CotM 2. Release date: 2020-July-10. Nice. I know what I'll be doing that day.

OwloftheNight98: dareka I wouldn't mind such a thread. I, in particular, want to see a religious protagonist- who doesn't lose faith due to disillusionment or "God was evil all along!"- in a fantastical game setting, to see how would they handle the crazy stuff like this.

OwloftheNight98: AS LONG, as they're written well of course, I refuse to acknowledge half-A'd writing.

RichterB: While far from perfect, the CV franchise has been pretty decent w/ its idea of embattled Christian holy warrior versus evil personified. It's different from a lot of games in that regard. I realized over the years that's been part of its appeal to me.

RichterB: Decided to spend a good chunk of time on that fan art I mentioned. Getting close to the coloring phase. As I was composing it, Gebel and Gremory decided to join Miriam and Goofball...and then a Valefar reference snuck itself in when I wasn't looking.

RichterB: Question: When I'm done with this thing, do I just post it in the fan art section of the forum, or is there someplace I'm supposed to put it to be considered for a future Kickstarter email? (assuming that is still a thing with dev updates.)

purifyweirdshard: You can post it in the fanart section here. To be considered for an update is something separate, post it to a social media outlet with the #igavania tag

purifyweirdshard: Also, yes, that was a significant part of the appeal to me for Castlevania as well. I've been hoping to see some of it in Bloodstained. That was what my hope in Dominique was all about.

RichterB: purifyweirdshard, Thanks for the info. And sorry about Dominique. But there's always Pure Miriam, I guess? I think maybe the Castlevania animated series sort of misses that thematic beat a little bit. I mean, Sypha's no longer related to the Church at all.
