A downloadable Castlevania for Windows

Happy Halloween!

Lycanthorn is a game inspired by Castlevania, made in 3D!

This short little game will take you through 8 levels of Vampire slaying action!


You are Rain. A Vampire slayer with Werewolf blood.

A small island off the coast of Morvania has become tainted with the Vampire menace.

Ascend Ransylva castle, and defeat Carmilla- the noble brood mother!


This project was a joint effort between me (Scumhead) and my talented friend Lukamusics!

Amazing game! Quick question, why is it called Shrine.exe? Only it's confusingly similar to your previous games...

Cool Game

Thanks homie

Currently, the Linux download does not show up in the itch client. Looks good, though!

Best Video Game on my opinion !

i have nothing to say but im loving its the best!

is this really a mod even shrine and this one?

This game is great! I'd add some advices for novice players (especially about jump after sprint) and some general polishing. But even now it feels great!

Your first point is what I was I came on here to write, I’d appreciate this being a little more approachable to someone who isn’t familiar with doom. I’d love to see just enough guidance so a person who has never played doom could get into this with no trouble

it’s little things like ‘okay I died and nothing is happening, what do I do?’

Fantastic game! So short though. I'm not gonna lie, I'd shell out $20 for a full length version. My only complaint is that it's perhaps a bit too easy. I breezed through final boss without even getting hit. Maybe a hard mode for more experienced players?

A very challenging game with excellent music. Congratulations!

Very cool, but the right mouse button doesn't do anything - I got the knives and could not throw them.

They work the same way as in Castlevania, just destroy some decorations to gain ammo for them.

Is it possible to roll this into a standalone wad/pk3? I've been using a RaspiPi for my doom fix lately.

Edit:You can just extract the ipk3 and use it, I was being stopped by a typo

😊👍

THIS IS PHENOMENAL!!!!

The bosses design are off the grid. Kudos!

Honestly I love your creations scumhead. I was a big fan of Shrine and Shrine II. But they had something dull. Lycanthorn is not like that, its beautiful. There is something about this game that makes it Castlevania-esque. Amazing game.

- A classic Doomer (also I got here because of KillsAlone :P)

So very cool. You got the feeling of the OG Castlevania games in a 3D setting which is no small feat. The music is fantastic as well, it sounds like something from a Castlevania game we never received (well, until now I guess). I played it for my Bloodcurdling Barrage, in which I do daily videos for all of October.


Enjoyed it! A little on the easy side, but a good half hour of fun, again a good showcase of your art too and the soundtrack is Castlevania convincing, it was a fun distraction from my day.

Holy crap.  Fantastic game.  Very fantastic.  Loved immensely.  Every single part.

Hmm.  DoomVania.  Like the concept.  Definitely playing.

Why is the game's executable called "Shrine"?

Also, right-clicking does not seem to work for me: Secondary Fire is bound to Mouse 2, yet I cannot throw knives when I right-click.

Finally, the music does not loop properly: rather, it fades out before starting over.

Oh, and spotted a typo in the first intermission screen: "recieved"

Because is from the same modder. Shrine and Shrine 2 are previous projects, and the art direction is simlar.

Absolutely awesome game, you’re doing Gods work right now.

Amazing game

This game's hella cool, man. And the soundtrack is so badass! Great job! Will the soundtrack be available for download at some point? I gotta have that, man.

Do you know if it will be available for download though? It's streaming only on there right now.

Was this made on the doom engine!?

Try Total Chaos and Project Brutality, you'll get stunned. Doom modding community will never die and will never cease to amaze us.

Very amazing. The overall art style and the palette are exactly like 8 bit games and i seriously love it.
