Hey, do you remember a Kickstarter campaign from late last year named Vincent the Vampire? Despite looking like a fun new point and click adventure it unfortunately failed to reach its funding goal by a pretty large margin. Campaigns placed anytime around December seem to be much tougher propositions, though. Developer Intuit By Design have launched another Kickstarter to help give their game another chance at life. If you missed out on it the first time, the game tells the story of office worker Vincent. Upon realization that his life is meaingless and horrifically dull he decides to quit. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) right after this realization he is killed and turned into a vampire.
Players will get to explore a grungy sort of world filled with characters that’d be at home in any Gothic horror novel – werewolves, other vampires, and the like. As with any adventure game there’s a good deal of puzzles to work through in Vincent the Vampire. Unlike most, though, you’ll have three solutions for each. That means if you can’t figure out one method of solving that you still might be able to work it out. The concept is definitely cool as long as it doesn’t lead to super bloated inventories!
Vincent the Vampire needs approximately $20,944 (converted from AUD) to succeed. This is down from their $23,000-ish goal from last time. It doesn’t appear they have a Steam Greenlight campaign up yet. The game is planned for launch on Windows, Mac, and Linux with the potential for mobile platforms if they can reach the requisite stretch goals.
