About This Game

Vigil: Blood Bitterness plunges you into the dark and disturbing story of an ancient civilization where you must reveal the secrets of your past and exact revenge on the Evil destroying your universe. Ritualistic killings and blood lust blur the line between your own kind and the Evil you seek to annihilate.

MINUSES:
- When I click on "Play", it sends me to buy "RIP - Trilogy™". But I already payed for this game, why do I need to pay for another game???
- I can't even launch this game!!!

P.S: If you ask me how and why I got 5 minutes playing, then I answer you I click on "Play", then "Library" (I did it approximately 100-150 times). Because, to write a review you need minimum 5 minutes playnig.

I don't get this game in the end. It's too indy to understand but the art in game is good, combined of contrast and minimalist concepts resulting in beautiful graphic. This game requires a trick to play cutscenes which you had to put Alt + Enter in the game and then it will run perfectly.

Don't waste you money on this. I really don't know if they game is incomplete or is mean to be like this... when i installed it it send me to the page of the game "RIP - Trilogy", i did have to clic on the download demo to be able to start the game.

A lot of black screens where you only hear weird sounds, poor graphics, my monitor was constantly attemping to adjust resolution. Could get to the first level trying to click some parts of the scenery, send me to a dark screen... go to the menu, click on clues, the game crashes.

I suppose my PC is not compatible with this game... i suppose it may work on olders machines.. i suposse the dark screen are the pre-render videos... do you want to try your luck?

This has got to be... The best game I've ever played!
How have I gone without playing this game before?
I am just speechless at how magnificent this game is.
Sometimes, this game haunts my dreams with its beauty.

Generally, I refrain from reviewing games.
As you may have noticed however, I MUST review this gem.
My life would be incomplete without the Vigil Experience(tm).
Every time I view the game in my library, I tear up a little.

So, for those of you wanting to buy this game, I leave you this:
Usually, take any review you read with a grain of salt.
Carefully read between the lines each for review, even this one.
Keep in mind, I'm not recommending this game.
Sorry reader, but read the first letter of every line.
