The classic point-and-click comic adventure is the brainchild of Bill Tiller, a veteran of the gaming industry, known for his award-winning work in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Curse of Monkey Island, The Dig and Indiana Jones.
“We’ve got an exceptional comedic adventure on our hands with A Vampyre Story,” said Byron Gaum, Product Manager at DreamCatcher Games. “The game shines with its wild and crazy characters, richly-detailed graphics and has more than 15 hours of brain-teasing fun. The talented development team behind this tale takes us back to the spirit and adventures they made famous in Monkey Island.”
Deep within the walls of a gloomy castle in the equally gloomy land of Draxsylvania, the young, gifted opera singer Mona De Lafitte is held captive by her tormentor, vampire Baron Shrowdy von Kiefer. Ever since she was transformed into a vampire by Shrowdy and whisked off to Draxsylvania, her greatest wish has been to return to Paris, continue her singing career, and one day become a star at the Paris Opera.
When Shrowdy fails to return from a nightly foray, she at last sees an opportunity to flee. Together with her only friend and confidant, a cheeky bat named Froderick, she escapes from her prison and tries to find her way back to Paris. During her flight through Draxsylvania, where she encounters some strange inhabitants and some even stranger challenges, Mona must learn not only to accept her vampire nature, but also to use the abilities she has acquired to her advantage.
A Vampyre Story is set to release in October 2008 for a suggested retail price of $29.99 USD.
