Bloodstained:  Ritual of the Night is Koji Igarashi's spiritual successor to the PlayStation 1 classic, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The game hit Kickstarter last month, and has proven to be astronomically successful. 

In fact, it has just become the most successful single video game ever on KickStarter with four hours still to run. It is just on the cusp of $5 million raised and it's only certain to hit a bigger goals as it comes to the end of the campaign. 

It's great to see this, as I like to see an audience rediscovered for genres we thought we were dead. Kickstarter has specialised in this rejuvenation, so to become the highest ever? It shows the real hunger for this type of game.
