You play as 'Samuel', a hapless farmer who finds a strange necklace.
This necklace soon curses him, and it's a race against the clock to cure himself!
Assuming 'he' will even want a cure by the end...
This game contains some puzzle elements, and the player must go out of their way to recruit party members.
It may take a couple tries to get the hang of the game.
If you find yourself getting stuck, check your Key Items for the current quest!
Also: You can check the walkthrough for tips
Some anti-virus systems might freak out when you try to download this^^
I can asure you, this is not a virus.(I realize that saying that might sound suspicious, but what else am I supposed to say?)
Aside from possible bug fixes, this game is now complete :D
On a cool spring morning, Samuel decided to explore a small cave near his village.
Inside this cave, he found a...coffin? And inside the coffin, he found...a necklace!
He foolishly put it on...
Katrina: A dark mage obsessed with vampires
Nicholas: Samuels best friend, and a decent mage
Hector: A wandering sellsword - Can be found in the Pub
And various NPCs
After getting some feedback, I've decided to add some tips and hints to make some things more clear^^
-Day/Night cycle: Depending on the difficulty you choose, 1 hour will be 10, 20, or 30 seconds in game.
Because of how the game processes this, travelling to a new area will advance the game clock by 1 hour.
-Sunlight damage: The sun will NOT insta-kill you! It will just slowly reduce your HP,
and reduce your MAX HP and MAX magic by half. Don't be too scared to go out in the sun.
-Blood Ring: Hidden inside the cave from the prologue, this ring will help you against the sun.
-Corruption: Every game hour, corrution will increase by 1% on Hard, 0.66% on Normal, and 0.33% on Easy.
In V 1.1, 100% results in gameover.
In V 1.5 and above, 100% will cause the vampire questline to start. Your goal will change from curing yourself, to killing the Arch Mage.
Also, certain actions will increase your corruption, such as feeding, or using Blood Magic.
-Business hours: Businesses like the shop and pub won't always be open. If it's late at night or early in the morning, they will likely be closed. Try back again during the day.

So, will you add a tailor/clothing shop?
What about a shoemaker/shoe shop?
Horses, sadles & wagons?
A Red lLght district?
More towns, villages, caves & forrested places and massively more vampire lore, books, text, items and so on.
Able to leave your minions behind or give them a task?
Working as a waitress or so???
Breaking into the Royal Palace, stealing vampire items from the vault(s), acting as a guest, getting your name on the Royal Ball guest list, sabotaging the anti-vampire protecting that is still working or finding ways past them, corrupting the Princess, Queen, ambassadors & (the royal) maids.
Starting a new trend in terms of how the wealth (female) people dress themselves, introduce bleaked/white skin being healthy or so, in order to get all the wealthy people to use paint or white poeder, to get a white skin.
Maybe causing a Costumed Royal Ball to be done, that has as theme, Vampires, Zombies and so on.
Turning or killing soldiers all over the realm, this so they can't hunt you down.
Make that Arch-mage just one of many, with the same difference between a village doctor or a hospital doctor of a big city.
With that Arch-mage being the village version, the city ones being way more powerfull.
Making corrupting the members of the Royal Palace, way more dangerous, but the only way to get access to certain stuff, like a crown that protects you from things not of your alignment, like good from evil, holy from corruption and so on.
A very cerrimonial(?) crown, thus stored in a very secured vault, but the only way to even enter the city it's mage academy, only the Royal Family can get access to this crown and only for those special days, this to protect from potential magics the mages could pull, when inspection their accademy.
It would turn the place you already made, into the village it's mage-school, thanks to travel distances & money, only the very best thus going to the city based mage-academy.
Thus thus also being the place where you could let vampire hunters being trained or equipped with their gear, for one.
Can you search that crypt it's coffins for stuff?
Like say finding more gothic/vampiric jewelry, clothing, boots, weapons and so on?
Especially fun if you're only female.
Some thight or crotch high, ballet & pony boots fusion, could be fun, for one.
A whip would work as well, same for other weapons, like a staff, a shield and several kinds of swords.
Body armor would also be good.
Something like the armor set shown in the below anime, first clip shows getting it, second shows it while in use, might work very well, I think.
Heh and for the route where you where almost fully a vampire in mind as well, but turned back into a human, could there be ways to undo what the arch-mage did to remove the vampire out of you?
Maybe even getting that vampie spellbook back or a more advanced one?
Also, would you still know those vampiric spells and be able to use them or not?
But most of all, can you make it so that the intro is actually fully playable as well?
Anyway, fun game, hope you can increase the fun, quite a bit.
Played true it, waaay too fast.
Still a fun game, hoping on more, but still thanks for what you currently made.
This is a very short RPG game with good, hand-drawn graphics.
The game has a time-limit of sorts, so I rushed through this one and probably missed most of the content, I saw two of the transformations (breasts and heels), but judging by the graphics at the start menu there are probably much more. I never bought or acquired any items (except quest items), just rushed through as quickly as I could while trying not to get lost.
I don't mean to say that the game is too easy, as it's enjoyable as it is. I would have probably enjoyed this more if I didn't know there was a time limit, so I would recommend taking your time to explore because the game is very lenient. The only difficulty in this game is finding out where you're supposed to go, so don't worry about damage or items or whatever, and don't be stressed by the time limit. Also pick "hard" rather than "normal", because I think that's how you get to see more of the transformations.
Short, simple, yet utterly enjoyable from beginning to end!
Windows Defender says this is a virus. Checked with online scanners, it is infact clean.
Right so maybe make it so that when you get a 'game over', you can still keep playing, but cant get any of the other endings.
