Greek publisher hell-tech announced that it has signed a publishing agreement with Crimson Cow for two adventure titles, A Vampyre Story, developed by Autumn Moon Entertainment, and The Abbey, developed by Alcachofa Soft.

“We are pleased to announce this partnership with Crimson Cow. The agreement is a logical step for us, as Crimson Cow shows the same enthusiasm for great adventures like we do.” said Christos Triantafyllou, Managing Director of hell-tech.

A Vampyre Story

This graphic adventure game, with traditional point-and-click gameplay, tells the tale of a beautiful gifted opera singer Mona De Lafitte, whose life is brought to an abrupt end by a vampire baron named Shrowdy Von Kiefer. Henceforth, she is doomed to a miserable existence as a creature of the night in Von Kiefer's gloomy castle in Draxsylvania. Confronted with her seemingly hopeless fate, she decides to run away and try to fulfil her dream of singing at the Paris Opera. Accompanied by her mischievous bat Froderick, Mona must face a number of challenges in her odyssey and learn not only to accept her vampire nature, but also to use the abilities she has acquired to her advantage.

A Vampyre Story was penned by Bill Tiller, the founder of Autumn Moon Entertainment. A former employee of Lucas Arts, Tiller won himself a place in the hearts of adventure fans through his work on titles such as Steven Spielberg's The Dig, the legendary The Curse of Monkey Island, and Indiana Jones. A Vampyre Story combines modern 3D animation with the qualities of classic 2D adventure design and a unique graphical style.

The Abbey

The ambitious project takes adventure fans to the gloomy world of the Middle Ages. An old abbey is the scene of a series of mysterious murders, and only one man can put a stop to the slaughter. In the role of the Grand Inquisitor Leonardo and his assistant Bruno, the player's task is to shed light on the mystery.

In addition to a gripping storyline with many an unexpected twist, "The Abbey" will feature a wealth of technological and graphic innovations. A special highlight will be the innovative presentation of cinematic proportions and over 70 minutes of soundtrack recorded by the Prague Symphony Orchestra.

hell-tech will release “A Vampyre Story” and “The Abbey” in 2008 in Greece, Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, FYROM and Turkey.
