Castlevania: Spectral Interlude
Simon's Quest
Aleksander Udotov
Description
Castlevania: Spectral Interlude was originally intended to be a demake of Simon's Quest, but it evolved into its own game. Similarly, it's an action-adventure game with RPG elements. In the creator's own words: "It merges well-known elements of classic games with some new ideas. It tells a new story that tries to remain consistent with the canon of original franchise, and it explains why the Belmonts disappeared for many years."
