“They banged doors, they shouted Trick or Treat and their brown paper bags began to fill with incredible sweets. They galloped with their teeth glued shut with pink gum. They ran with red wax lips bedazzling their faces. But all the people who met them at doors looked like candy factory duplicates of their own mothers and fathers. It was like never leaving home. Too much kindness flashed from every window and every portal. What they wanted was to hear dragons belch in basements and banged castle doors.” -Ray Bradbury

"What is a castle but a miserable pile of weens." - Dracula, probably.



Yonder Google Doodle tells me that Fall has officially arrived. It's that time of year when the air turns crisp, the scent of pumpkin pie lattes wafts through the town, and Spirit Halloween wakes from its dusty slumber. And it's when Talking Time collectively gives Dracula his just deserts... literally! You see, old man Dracula loves to swoop down on unsuspecting village maids and give them the ol' two-fang. Too bad he can't bite down if his mouth is gobbed up with delicious treats and that's where you come in. From now till November 1st every Video Dracula defeated represents one more candy corn or laffy taff gumming up Dracula's piehole. Defeat 100 Draculas and he'll be chewing on so much candy no one need will fear walking the streets of Wallachia again.



What counts as a Dracula?
A Dracula is a Dracula. They can be identified by their high collars, batwing capes, and preference for free blood. They are also named Dracula. Remember, a Dracula who is not a Dracula does not count as a Dracula. Draculas include:
  • Dracula (Haunted Castle)
  • Dracula (Castlevania: The Adventure)
  • Dracula (Castlevania Judgement)
  • Dracula (Knife Hit, iOS)
  • Dracula (Talking Time, online)
Can't beat Dracula? No worries!
The world of Draculas that are not Draculas is vast and wide. Anything sufficiently Dracula-like that's not technically a Dracula is a Bonus-Dracula and is worth a whole 0.5 True Draculas! Bo'draculas include:
  • Father Gascoigne (Bloodborne)
  • Phalanx (Demon's Crest)
  • Married Vampire Couple (Illusion of Gaia)
Or whatever! Go nuts! The point of this holiday is to have fun with some spooky games. So grab a whip and some holy water, strap on your secret boots, and let's stuff Dracula so full of sugar he won't know what's what. Happy Castleween!!

How about games where you are Dracula? May be pertinent if upcoming rumored rereleases are to believed.

I concur that I said this quote and meant it with all of my blood-starved heart.

But no one will be defeating me this castleween.

Hashtag give it to gilly
Do non-Dracula vampires like Olrox and Carmilla also count as half-vampires? Because if so some Castlevaniae are higher in vampire points than others and I want to know how to best maximize my time, you see

I think when I ran this last year I allowed a clear of any bloodstained game as a Dracula Point just for being in the spirit of the thing. But I am not the Master of The Castle this year.

I doubt I'll defeat many BUT this year will be the first time I play Castlevania III, one that is very beloved, so I'm looking forward to it. I'm gonna wait until the month called Halloween to start.

wow there sure are a lot of licensed games for hit netflix animated series Castlevania
I don't suppose we get a quarter point for watching Draculas get beaten by Trevor, Alucard, and Sypha in animated form...

(Shit, now I kind of want a cell-shaded game based on the TV series, just to make the ouroboros complete.)

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain a complete mint in box G1 Ramjet, but lose his soul?
