    Edgy Vampire Story
    Sunny Sunny

    BASED ON DEMO

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS
    I really love the way this game looks at the opening shots, Boston at nightfall, impressionist-style. Unfortunately, the quality of the graphics and the simplistic gameplay kill any lingering affection for this game.

    SIGHTS & SOUNDS
    This game was released in 2008, so you’d expect something primitive, and it is. The graphics are awful, and are reason enough to uninstall it. The music was the really great part. It had an edgy, urban feel about it, which complemented the locations perfectly. It is the true source of the delightful atmosphere of this game.

    WHAT’S HAPPENING
    The story unfolds through the use of graphic novel style art, with speech balloons. It works okay. This vampire story has our heroine, recently infected, fighting to gather the essence needed by all vampires to survive as “Nocturnals” i.e. being able to feed off something other than humans. If she does not, she will lose her immortality and/or enter an eternal sleep.

    MAKING PROGRESS
    This is where the game disappoints. Despite the bad graphics, I would have enjoyed this game with decent gameplay. What we get is, read a page of graphic-novel story. Enter HOP scene and find the listed objects. Complete a mini-game (Mastermind, if you remember it), the same one each break, with increasing difficulty. There is no ‘here’ outside HOP scenes, which are junk piled and hard to see properly.

    FAMOUS LAST WORDS
    Atmosphere is the best thing about this game. It would be great to see someone do something similar, with all the advantages of today’s technology.

    I Don't Recommend This Game!
