Bloodstained is the most funded video game ever on Kickstarter

UPDATE: Campaign ends at over $5.5m.

UPDATE 13/06/2015 5.12pm: Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's Kickstarter campaign has ended at a spectacular $5,545,991.

Every stretch goal was reached, culmnating in the addition of a procedurally-generated Roguelike Mode and a Boss Revenge Mode.

ORIGINAL STORY 11/06/2015 5.23pm: Koji Igarashi's Castlevania spiritual successor, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, has become the most funded video game ever on Kickstarter.

Currently set at $4,285,745 with still 34 hours to go, it's eclipsed Torment: Tides of Numenera's former record of $4,188,927.

With no sign of slowing down, Igarashi has added further stretch goals to the project, such as a prequel/mini-game for PC and consoles at $4.5m. At $4.75m that will come to handheld platforms as well, and at $5m a procedurally-generated roguelike mode will be added.

You have until tomorrow at 8pm PST (so 4am Sat for UK folk) to back Bloodstained, and pledges of $28 will secure you a copy of the game upon its release.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been confirmed for PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U and Vita. It's aiming for a March 2017 launch.

Here's some early prototype footage to whet your appetite:
