Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has just been released (Steam and GOG for PC users), following one of the most successful funding campaigns on Kickstarter. Bloodstained managed to raise over 5.5 million USD on the platforms, displacing Torment: Tides of Numenera as the most-funded game on the platform by a good 1.5 million. Although its reign as champion lasted only a brief two months, until Shenmue III was announced, Bloodstained remains a monument to the popularity of the Metroidvania genre.
