Over 2500 renders in this title! See a few below!
*Warning - the gameplay does not start until after Chap 4 when YOU CHOOSE YOUR FIRST MONSTER HUNT, this is an interactive novel so expect a LOT of reading- like in my MANY other finished projects! This is also a GAME- it has an inventory, currency, stats, random monster fights, weapons, potions, puzzles, boss fights AND MORE!
If you want something simpler, to just fap to, there are countless other games to play instead, with far less depth, so check those out and thank you! This is also a work in progress, so do not consider it done! Also, please do not review if you have not played to at least the end of the first monster hunt. If you have not reached a picture of a "Under Construction" sign, then it means you have NOT reached the current end.*
This is an interactive novel/experience, like my other titles. If you think my hard work is worth at least a dollar, please support me on Patreon! In this project, one plays as either a male nosferatu named Brone Lorcan and a female vampire hunter named Absinthe Van Gothen. All of my interactive novels fall under the same story arc, this title, chronologically, is the 4th episode in the series. Hope you enjoy this, and please "like" any of my projects you enjoy here!
New public update! (Patreon has Entire project except finished Game Mode) Ch 19,20 + Extra Large Special Item Bad Ends - Oct 30th 2020
SLOWDOWN FIXED! As of now, the slowdown/lag issue has been found and fixed. Should your browser begin to slow down, simply save your game, close the game, reopen, and load. It should work like a charm and only take a moment. I tend to use it before the forest hunt and asylum, but your own computer and browser settings may require it later or earlier.
Chapters 1 through 20, and eight entire monster hunts (you do one after every two chapters starting after chapter 4). There are a working inventory and in-game shop, my House of Haggle (you may recall it from my Factions YouTube video). The monster hunt does have random monster encounters and a map with fog of war. I advise one to prepare at the House of Haggle before going on a hunt. Also, WINNING monster hunts unlocks the transformations via a Bad End menu! Enjoy yourself!
Absinthe Van Helsing, a singer, and rocker, has been destined to defeat the evil vampire lord, Ivor. The nosferatu, Brone Lorcan, if the key to Abby's empowerment as a great vampire hunter. He helps her claim the 'Blood Suit'- a liquid latex suit made of the very blood of Dracula himself! With the suit, she must still seek out and obtain many artifacts hidden around Portland, Oregon. Then, together, the odd pair must work together to defeat Ivor and his minions! Can she trust Brone? Can he trust her? Play Desideratum to find out!
Brone Lorcan, Absinthe Van Helsing, Ivor, Eleanora Blackwood, and countless others from my intellectual properties!
Too hard for now...will maybe try again if the hunts either become easier or a cheat becomes available. I am more of a story person than one who dwells in trying again and again with grinking esque habits. I'm stuck continuously dying in the Asylum ^^
I read through it for a while but honestly had to stop well before anything interesting finally happened.
I appreciate the effort and thought being put into this, but this is in serious need of editing. i think the writer has clearly gotten caught up in the idea that they have all this world building, all these ideas that tie everything together and they think that it's all important. It might help bring life to the setting in such a way that they can write more easily but it makes reading a tedious slog. We don't need to know every litle thing about their lives, just make their behavior demonstrate who they are.
And for that matter the dialogue is clunky. And not in a "this is being written in a most formal manner" but in a "just not at all how people talk" sort of way.
I don't want to sound to harsh here. I lot of love has been put into this and I hoenstly intend to go back to it and read through some more. The art is better than we get in a lot of these things, and they've celarly put some work into this. I skipped over loads of it as it is and I'm still bored.
In spite of all that, I'm still going to click "like" and I'm still interested in seeing where things go.
Well I'm not impressed, THis is TF Games Site, and there is no "Game" here. There is only one so called choice, which boils down to pick Good, or Bad Ending, with you getting to jump back to the choice to get the other ending, so even that's not really a choice.
AS a game it;s a total failure, but it may be a great Graphic Novel, it just doesn't have any game in it, at least I could mute the annoying music, though deleting the folder would be the obvious alternative.
I don't know whether the Novels good or not, thoiugh it would be better if it had no links to next page, as I quickly started link clicking, looking for the "Game" it pretends to be.
Take the music away make it a single html file except for the ending choices, and it would be a far better reading experience, without any expectation of user input, the two endings would be a pleasant surprise, rather than the "Is that all there is" moment. I felt.
It's all about expectations, I expected a game, and got none, whjere if the novel read as such, the ending choice would be a nice surprise, not a dissapointment.
I just played this game for the first time and i have to say that i am impressed! The story developes kind of slow and you have to read some pages before the actual gameplay starts but the artwork is great and the story is well written.
There is quite some content to explore now and i found myself in an actual kind of RPG after a while, so i will stay alert for future updates, give it a try, folks!
Keep up the great work!
Its a good interactive tale, but there are some major inconsitancies, such as when playing the vampire you arrive at a house based on a letter you read, then the owner is said to have"...taught you to read, and that opened a completely new world to you."
Play the vampire if you want a story, the girl if you want something hot, although neither has any options to make it truley a "game" as of yet.
