mainly because castlevania wasn't really an rpg.  it has stats and levels, but you can't customize them at all and they merely serve as a way to allow unskilled players to still progress in the castle through grinding.  It's a dedicated action platformer with a score of items to collect, as much a role-playing game as Halo.

Unepic is more of a "Metroidvania" RPG since there's a great deal of depth to it and the player is actually afforded some measure of decision in how he'd like to play and progress.  You're actually taking on a role there as opposed to this static character.

Look up videos of Valkyrie Profile and tell us if that's what you're going for. The battle system is kind of action-like but it takes place on a separate screen.

Well Im not saying, carbon copy it , but expand on it or try kingdom hearts style? or even megaman Legends Cause I like platforming action myself. But I unno. If it Has to be turned based. Id love to see more of A board game styled play system. where you plot out a party members movement and attack on a board and makes it more tatical in a way I can relate to.

Is there any way this plugin works with the big character, and the QSprite plugin? Using RTP chars, everything works fine, but the big ones, with QSprite, it's like that in the image, it doesn't reflect right. And there is, in the settings, an option to fix it. Thanks.
