California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at:

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:
Users can visit our site anonymously
Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.
Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?
It's also important to note that we allow third party behavioral tracking

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify the users via email
      Within 1 business day

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:
      Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:
      NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
      Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
      Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
      Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

lovelydumpling: I remember them saying they were really considering stagger on the extra modes so that the game releases on time, to avoid the Mighty No. 9 delay fiasco where they delayed the entire game just because Multiplayer wasn't finished. Jun 22, 2017 17:18:35 GMT -6

castledan: Staggered release just makes sense. No sense waiting another year because of pointless extra modes that would have never been in the game had it not been for the kickstarter Jun 22, 2017 23:22:27 GMT -6

castledan: Get the main game out with the IMPORTANT extras and stagger the rest of the modes Jun 22, 2017 23:23:02 GMT -6

lovelydumpling: If anything, staggering the extra modes also gives them more time to properly flesh out these modes as opposed to rush them out to meet the stretch goals and release the game. I can just about guarantee we'll get a delay if we're going to wait on them all. Jun 23, 2017 1:59:50 GMT -6

ZeroSbr: I don't think anyone is expecting a game 100x bigger than SotN. Maybe twice as big at most. IGA did promise a castle larger than the largest in any of his games. I just hope he didn't pull a politician on us and make tons of promises he will never keep. Jun 23, 2017 15:47:36 GMT -6

purifyweirdsoul: He's committed to specifically bigger than 1600 rooms/squares. Jun 23, 2017 16:17:05 GMT -6 *
ZeroSbr Avatar
ZeroSbr: rooms/squares? As in the same size squares common to the other Castlevania games? If that's the case, then he has a minimum of at least 1897, which is one square more than SotN. Jun 23, 2017 17:15:44 GMT -6
ZeroSbr Avatar
ZeroSbr: 1600+ squares and "biggest castle yet" seem like they could be conflicting statements, so...which is it? Jun 23, 2017 17:16:33 GMT -6
Galamoth Avatar
Galamoth: You can't reliably count all of the rooms in SotN, because they're divided between two different castles. The normal Castle in SotN just contains 942 rooms. Jun 23, 2017 17:31:49 GMT -6 *
Galamoth Avatar
Galamoth: "IGA's Biggest Castle" is the goal of making 1,600+ rooms for a single Castle, of course. Not dividing them between two. Jun 23, 2017 17:32:44 GMT -6
Enkeria Gin Avatar
Enkeria Gin: Probably 1 castle, yes. Perhaps some AREAS are re-used in some kind of dimension / passage or time travel, in a short section of the game. Modes included with environmental settings. Jun 23, 2017 17:54:25 GMT -6
lovelydumpling Avatar
lovelydumpling: Yeah... I mean I suppose if you really wanted him to he could just make a 1000 room castle and then flip it upside down to be technically bigger than SotN but... 1600+ unique rooms, I'd have to argue, is a lot more worthwhile. Jun 23, 2017 18:18:57 GMT -6
