D1896 is a part of AHTG's Gothic Trilogy. It's an action adventure platformer in the style of the early horror movies, inspired specifically by "Le Manoir Du Diable", the first horror movie ever made (it was released in 1896 and the title - D1896 - is a link to this movie).

    1. At the moment nowhere :) The game will be released this year. November, I think.

  2. Uh she's beautiful but why you should rip her face?

    1. I probably can, but it's too expensive for me at the moment.

  4. In the description you mentioned this was the third entry into your "Gothic" series. What were the first two and where can I find them? I'd love to play them first. OuO

    1. D1896 is the second episode of the trilogy.

      The first is TSOTC - the links are here:

      The third and final episode is Cube Gothic and it will be released in the end of 2020.

    2. I played your first game: castlevania, the seal of the curse, and it was amazing.

  5. Love the story. Can't wait for chapter 2.

    1. Working on it right now :) I'm glad you like the story.

  6. I am SUPER curious now, having watched TSotC through to the end and D1896, what both X and "Cheshire" are up to? So X is the father of Vlad and Mary? Who/What actually "is" The First? Why did he call himself a cat from Transylvania of all things?

    Very, very intriguing stuff...

    1. Everything will be explained in Episode 3. "The First" is the first vampire (like the first ever, the source of vampirism, father of all vampires). He's calling himself a cat because he doesn't really care what Alice is thinking about him, but showing his true face would surely scare her. He needs Alice because she's related to Simon. And Simon will return in episode 3...

      X wants The First dead. He's on Simon's side (for now).

    2. Ah, Alice is related to Simon somehow, interesting...

    3. If "X" is really that "Up" to want "this-a-First",he'll grow widely concerned true Vampires are not to be wanting for, rather just after — fleeing from never pains either. True I've gone widowed vainfully-disclung, or preferredly "vanitarious" over those melodramarers,who wants mellow upper Romances as for such prude-bratry.Excuse for them,these all of neologisms,they made themselves needed!
