Looking for a new adventure game with a Gothic twist? Vincent the Vampire might just be up your alley. This point and click title is inspired by classics of the genre, but still intends to do something new. First, there’s the protagonist Vincent who has spent years doing the same ho-hum job. One day he has an epiphany and decides to leave work in order to simply explore and be free. Unluckily for him, he’s killed before he gets much chance to do anything at all. Only… he wakes up the next day – undead. Will Vincent learn to control these new vampiric powers of his? That’s up to players to find out.
Vincent the Vampire has a great deal of inspiration from Gothic horror. Not only are there vampires in this city but also werewolves. Oh, and Death, cyborgs, and lawyers, too. As Vincent you’ll have to interact with all these beings and hopefully quell the war that rages between them. One way in which this game differentiates itself from the standard point and click adventure is that there are multiple solutions to puzzles. Now, if you don’t quite understand the logic behind one solution hopefully you’ll figure out another. There are also side quests to explore for furthering your understanding of Vincent’s world.
Developer Intuit by Design is asking for a Kickstarter goal of $30,000 AUD (about $26,000) to create Vincent the Vampire. The game is pegged for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs. There’s no Greenlight campaign up just yet, but they will bring it to Steam if successful there.
