“Just the Right Amount of Mystery and Creepy Vampire Feeling...”

About This Game

BloodLust is a present-day Dungeon Crawler where players will journey into the depths of darkness searching for a great evil, while struggling to decide whether to destroy or embrace their Kindred family.



The last member in a coven of "ShadowHunters" find themselves resurrected into a lost city terrorized by the all-powerful "Emperor" Ranior, a monstrous vampire lord.

Haunted by visions of darkness and tormented by their ghosts from the past, the hunters struggle daily, though they always continue to move forward.

With each victory they grow stronger, increasing bloodline and skills in the "Dark Arts", but all at the cost of their humanity. With each new bloodline, they find themselves turning more into the vampiric monsters they were resurrected to destroy.

In the end, their great power will be challenged only by themselves, as they will have to face the source of their own immortality and decide whether to embrace the darkness or destroy it... What Would You Choose?

Gameplay

-----------------------

Bloodlust is a huge "Dungeon Crawler" style game where your character (a Warrior, Thief, or Witch) will explore extremely deep dungeons, passages, asylum basements, tunnels, sewers, and caves in search of secrets, traps, and rare loot, all while battling various enemies and creatures in order to uncover the truth behind a dark society.

  • - Play as a Male or Female Vampire with Classes Including Witch, Thief or Warrior
  • - Sire Others with your "Embrace" to Build your Family of Minions
  • - Learn and Increase Vampire Disciplines, Skills, Talents and Attributes
  • - Dynamic Loot and Procedurally Created Areas Create Infinite Replay-ability
  • - Non-Linear World Allows Players to Follow Their Own Path and Quest Goals

Key Features

-----------------------

  • Bite and Sire Others to Join Your Family
    Create a family where each member can help you gain experience, find loot, or sire others. Communicate and control with your members telepathically to use their growing strengths along with your disciplines to achieve victory amongst the Kindred rivals.

  • Procedurally Generated Areas
    Explore and 'crawl' through vast dynamic dungeons, caves, passages and sewers with multiple floors delving deeper into darkness while searching for ever increasing valued loot, treasures and powerful weapons.

  • Grow Your Bloodline
    Using talents, disciplines and attributes, you decide how to grow your character from a weak fledgling into a powerful Vampire, capable of leading an entire faction of Vampires.

  • Vampire Disciplines
    Join rival clans to earn reputation while learning each group's unique skill set. The choice is entirely yours to either stay loyal or backstab, bluff, and lie while creating chaos from inside the clan's political hierarchy.

  • Non-Linear Story and Gameplay
    Hidden from light, this Dark City is yours to uncover and explore however you desire. Hide in the shadows, while traveling underground or interact with factions directly under their noses using the art of the embrace, seduction and persuasion to mask where your true loyalty lies. Your decisions can affect dialog choices or avoid quest outcomes entirely.

  • Dynamic Loot From the Fallen Kindred
    With a bloodline that dates back over 3000 years it is not inconceivable that a few valuable items, from the fallen kindred, may have been lost along the way. Buried deep below in the Dark City's ancient past, lies thousands of randomly generated weapons, loot, and equipment. A bounty for the few souls brave enough to seek it out.

This game is good and bad.

Good: a lot of areas to explore, secrets to find, enemies to kill, levels to gain, abilities to buy, spells to cast, etc. etc. etc. That is to say, there's a good amount and variety of content. The atmosphere (lighting, environments, voice acting, UI) is immersive. Siring minions is a neat idea, although I wish you could interact with them more. In my opinion, the price is reasonable. The dev is responsive and a patch was pushed out at time of writing.

Bad: It is grindy. Characters in the game were talking about going down to like level 67 of a dungeon. I never needed to go lower than level 15, so who knows what I missed, but I just did not have the endurance. Your wrist gets tired of double tapping 'w' to jump forward over and over again. The color light and sound locks. I never got the feeling that I found a particularly outstanding piece of loot.

I could go on nitpicking, but overall I actually liked the game. Just set your expectations--this isn't a AAA title backed by a mega-publisher. It's just an atmospheric game filled with a lot of good ideas.

As someone who's been searching for a decent vampire centered rpg for a while I really enjoyed this game, although it is pretty grindy and gets boring after a while. The loot drops could have been done better i never really came across anything that was just really cool or unique its just the same garbage you've been seeing with randomized stats. I also have a problem with only seeing my hat, Piercings and weapon/flashlight, I like to be able to see what i have on. Despite that i did have fun with the game its fun being able to sire minions and have them go out and sire even more people. The story was pretty solid as well just wish there had been more to it. The skill system was very nice as well, i liked the idea of certain clans holding certain abilities and having to improve your standing with them to rank up said skills.

All in all though i did enjoy the game not enough for a second playthrough though so take from that what you will. Its a solid idea with some very bland combat and grindy leveling and pretty mediocre story. However i reccomend it to ppl who like vampires and rpg/dungeon crawlers maybe when its on sale or you can't find something else to hold your attention.

Dont let yourself be seduced by the the people that say its almost like Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines because it isnt. I myself love VtMB and already played it countless times (retail). Unfortunately it doesnt even go near VtMB. Im telling you this because i bought the game solely out of that reason. The level design is some of the worst ive ever seen and caused me severe headache. The dialogues are boring. Animations feel as if they were made in 5 mins. Combat feels like you play a 200 year old grandma that swings her bag around at some Monsters (i think thats what they are to be honest if the name of the creature wouldnt stand at the top of the screen i wouldnt even recognize what its supposed to be) EVEN if the majority of reviews are positive i honestly dont know why someone would enjoy something like this. Go play goat simulator instead because that ♥♥♥♥♥ gonna let you have some fun at least for an hour.

Reminiscent of Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodliines only it seems to do things better in some ways and feels much more open ended and fun. Lots of skills to get which alter with every playthrough. Different races and classes to choose from is a nice feature too. There is also bit of Character Customization options but they are a bit limited. But for the price you get a lot of game and enjoyment. This game is highly recommended.

You know, there are very few games out there that try to an extent to grab the player and at the same time create a world that can be immersive. Of course there has to be a fun factor, and every review I have seen weighs that fun factor with time spent versus money paid. Although that being said, free games get their bad reviews as well, which says a lot. This game, I know, has that fun factor and creates a world that can be immersive.

So, Bloodlust Shadowhunter. I played the demo, and now own the full game here on Steam.

The hand-created areas in the tutorial and beginning areas outside of the main city area are really well crafted. Yeah, the combat is a bit different (some say its jittery or wonky), but it's that difference that gives this game its flavor. I play a spell caster normally in my games, and to hang back and watch minions attack while I fire away at my spells is a blast in Shadowhunter. Setup your key bindings the way an mmo is played, and you're right at home. Changing talent tree is also new, and some have hated it, but I like it. It makes it a different experience with each playthrough. Loot drops are also interesting. Not great, but they do provide enough incentive to push on through your campaign. There is plenty to do in this title, and yes, even an endless type dungeon.

Yeah, there are some bugs. Every game I have ever played has them. This game doesn't make them stand out too badly. There is some imrovements that need to be made to writing, and storyline and character creation, but overall from a one man band dev crew, I gotta' give this a great review. If I were to put numbers to it, it would be a 7.5 out of 10. A solid game, and a great take on the vampire world.

Now, if the dev reads this: To add an expansion pack with maybe some new classes and character creation with some new areas would really make this standout. Otherwise, great work.

So get out there and sire some minions.

Great game! Im a huge fan of bloodlines and when i saw this game it was a MUST HAVE.. Lets just say i was not disappointed in the game. Their were some cons but that did not stop me from not playing it. The game literally had me hooked. Hours seem to by quick when you're playing this!

Pros:
Dungeons are randomly gernerated
Randomized talent trees
OVER 100 DUNGEONS
Stat point customization
Sounds
Talent points
Ability to sire and entire family/mini army.
different types of monsters. Vampires, zombies, ghosts, minions

Cons:
Only 3 classes. Warrior (warrior), Witch (mage) and Criminal
Voice acting is kinda bad
graphics are pretty outdated

Pre-Release Review
Posted: April 21, 2015
This is the crowning jewel of pre-release games. I kid you not.

Day one, I found an exploit and two major bugs that could have wrecked the game. I pointed them out on the game forum. Day two, they were gone. The very next day I pointed out a couple interface anomolies, such as highlighting the slots where you place pieces of armor. Day three, they were gone. I pointed them out, and within the next six hours a patch arrived that addressed *minor* annoyances, and let me assure you they were minor--this is a pre-release game. I did not expect it to run well on my PC. I did not expect it without bugs.

No, I expected it to be a good game that required polish. Apparently, ONE designer did this whole game! If that's not polish, I'm not sure how teams of 17+ can complain. As far as gameplay, this is Vampire: the Masquerade: Bloodlines meets Diablo, as other reviewers have pointed out. What they have not pointed out is the nuances of dungeon crawling, such as secrets to be discovered, minor puzzles, and side areas nobody gets to discover. They even have lockpicking, keys, doors that require opening, and traps for the unwary adventurer. See? Diablo, this is not. It comes across as a homage to World of Darkness, in its raw form, but streamlined down to a very narrow interface which is easy-to-learn, hard-to-master. If you like vampires.

If you like dark fantasy.

If you like traditional fantasy.

If you like MMOs.

If you like RPGs.

If you like sci-fi.

If you like Chinese soap operas.

If you like dhampires.

If you like your mother.

Hell, if you like anything about PRE-release gaming, or even just gaming in general, BUY THIS IMMEDIATELY. If I could hold ten thumbs up I would! I can only hope the game progressively gets better from here. I feel I have gotten my full money's worth. A cinema ticket costs less! Seriously. Buy it! Games deserve this type of dev support. That's even without the synergy, and gameplay balance, here--that combine to make this video game more than the sum of its parts.

Even in its pre-release form, this is shaping up to be a visceral, and pulse-pounding (forgive the pun) experience. No kidding! Buy.

Just. Click. It.

EDIT: I have just gotten into the city areas. I will continue this review as I go. As it stands, the dev support alone has me sold on that movie theater ticket. ;)

UPDATE 9/27/2015 (Shortly after Release):

I cannot update my original opinions without altering the original review, so as of now, the visuals lack, but the gameplay is nicely polished. It adds up to a more action oriented experience than Bloodlines, but with more depth and sophistication than Diablo. I would ding it slightly for not being as polished as a commercial release, but that is where that ends. In spite of graphics, this is a monumental achievement for one man. For the price of a movie ticket, you get a first-person Diablo, in a World of Darkness-type setting, that nails gameplay and displays polish. Please note this is an independent release, and I think the price tag nicely suits it, though I would have paid $29.95 for the gameplay I got out of it, minus that other games are now haunting my time (Beware of Steam sales!) In conclusion, I would not buy it purely for boredom, but it is one of those "in-between" games where you can engage your RPG addiction before moving onto the dozen or so commercial releases stacked in your library. I would nicely rank it 8/10. Maybe an 8.5 if you like vampires or ARPGs.

Found a game breaking glitch at the beginning of the game and posted it on the forum, dev responded and had it fixed in about an hour.
I would recommend this game even without that, but to see a 1 man development "team" being so responsive compelled me to actually take a minute of my time to write this and recommend the game.

11/10 would lust for blood again

I really like this game.

From a technical point of view, it's pretty terrible. The graphics are really dated, the writing/script is generally bad, the characters are awkward (the player character's totally goofy flashlight pose almost turned me off from getting the game altogether), you use a flashlight despite being a nocturnal predator, the voice acting is painful most of the time, combat is awkward, and the equipment system makes you look utterly ridiculous (my PC is running around in a metal vest, goggles and a tophat with a medieval spiked morning star. I'd feel awkward at a cosplay event in that costume, let alone as an immortal predator.. if I weren't Malkavian).

But someone has needed to make this game for a long time. Since Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, in fact.

There are several things this game does which no other game has even attempted. The first is the lineage system. You can bite humans, turn them into your undead servants, and then have them act as your bodyguard or send them to check the pockets of your fallen enemies for you. You can even get them to bite other humans, creating a lineage of Vampires with you at the center. This is a very simple idea, but awesome. A Vampire game where you can actually have minions? Yes, please.

It has its own form of a politics system. There are a handful of Vampire clans and your standing with each one determines what kinds of supernatural powers you can develop (and other things).

The powers are well-thought out and enjoyable and, most importantly, very different. They're what carry the game, from a design standpoint. You have the mobility of a Vampire, able to jump great distances... past traps or upwards 15 feet to reach beyond human bounds. You can turn to mist and walk through gates and fences, you can summon a will o wisp to trip levers or scout around corners for you... and many other things.

Each of the three classes (warrior, thief, mage) has its own starting power options, but you can theoretically learn any 'class' during a single playthrough since it's only constrained by stats and your reputation with the clans.

And, since the powers are diverse, interesting (even game-changing in some cases), and broken up by the political system, you need to cultivate favor with certain clans to get access to the really good stuff.

While everything else about the game can be off-putting, it does include a number of innovative desgins which I'd really like to see more often, and which I have no problems supporting. Although there are a lot of things I don't like about the game, I've been waiting for a long time for a Vampire game where you can pick up some alcohol-sodden bum, give him a battle axe and a taste of blood, and send him at your enemies. Bloodlust lets you do that.

I really wish someone would have slapped whoever was responsible for the name and said 'Come on! Nobody thinks that sounds cool,' though.

I bought this on a whim and it's worth it. For those who are wanting to know if it's like Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines...I hesitate to say yes, but it might scratch that same itch.

You start off creating your character. Choose between Vampire/Dhampir, Warrior/Witch/Criminal, and male/female. Then you get some stat points to throw around, and you're thrown into the game which seems to have a fairly decent story. There's also a surprising amount of voice acting in the game, every character is fully voiced.

The combat is a bit clunky and awkward, but still fun. Besides a weapon and flashlight you will get some skills at the start, and can get quite a few more over time as you level up. There are also skills used for things outside of combat, such as finding secrets (and there are a lot of secrets for those who enjoy hunting for that sort of thing).

As you encounter more NPCs and enemies, and do more quests, you can gain influence with various clans. The dialogue with NPCs is pretty decent, and you'll get some different options if you spec into the right stats too.

The game is rough around the edges, but seems to be a hidden gem and I've enjoyed every minute of it so far.

Don't let the indie look and feel (and price) fool you. This game is very deep first-person ARPG, filled with more randomly-generated items and dungeons than you can shake a cross at. There's a thin main story (some nonsense about going after your vampiric sire) but the meat of the game is buried in vast roguelike dungeons where you'll use your own vampiric powers and weapons to mercilessly slaughter legions of the undead, monsters, and other trash. The game is easy to pick up and play, and the ingame tutorials will get you up to speed quickly, although there's a few game systems that you'll need to puzzle out during your own play time.

It's not all just hack and slash, though. Bloodlust also tosses in helping helpings of alchemy, crafting, and other activities to spice up the grind. There's really nothing really new here -- BloodLust is, at its core, a very familiar ARPG grind -- but the unexpected level of polish by this one-man-band production is very surprising. Highly recommended, and there are some major studios out there who could learn from this game!

BloodLust Shadwhunter is the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ child of Vampire the Masquerade and Diablo that both amazes and disappoints me at the same time.

*PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING IS BASED ON MY AND ONLY MY OPINIONS*

The first thing you'll probably notice when browsing through this game's steam page is the relatively lacklustre screenshots. Yes... the visuals are.... lacking to say the last. However, don't let that fool you though as the game's real charm is hidden under its layers of ugliness. Graphics settings will let you tamper with texture, AA and resolution settings to a certain extent; although, I found that with everything maxed my fps hitches a bit everytime I use a spell that produces clouds on the ground. With a GTX 770, this really shouldn't be happening with these kind of visuals. Enemy design is blurry and unimaginative although some well placed monster spawns do give you a heartbeat spike while you're dungeon crawling. Animations are stiff at best while more than a few cases of figures clipping through walls.

The game has a small town area that you will be able to explore during the story as well as some prostitues/hobos to suck blood from or turn into your family. Past that is where the real juice of this game is. There is a well fleshed out randomly generated dungeon system in this game filled with traps, treasures, monsters, etc. It's actually quite charming to go into the depths and worry about being making the decision to go further or turn back while you still have the chance. When your hp goes to 0, you will get knocked out. During that time, you can either choose to wake up where you were or spawn in the last safe zone. The caveat is that your body may have been looted while you were down.

The class system is basic with 3 in total. There are skill and talent trees that will let you have some diversity in builds. I felt that weapons are extremely restricted to certain classes though as each weapon type usually requires you to heavily invest in one of the three main combat stats. Warriors usually invest in strength to get more dps, witch with charisma, etc. I got a gun early on that required 50 points in strenght and another sword that wanted 30 in agi. These are stats that I wouldn't ever invest in as I picked the witch class. Another odd deisgn choice was separating persuasion from charism. Persuation has its own stat while charisma increases your magic... Lastly is the game's family system. You can suck someone's blood and build your own family. You need to level up the blodo sucking skill to increase family size and your minions have their own stats and skills you can upgrade. As a result of this however, they feel like faceless npc's with no personality.

Overall, I highly recommend this game given its low price. While a one person developer certainly doesn't excuse its faults it does engender some sympathy for the lack of resources.

Yes this game is under construction. There will be bugs from time to time. But from personal experiance I can tell you the developer works on fixing any problems reported. I got a nice 12 hour turnaround on my issue.

So far in it's current state.

Cons
Graphics slightly crunchy. By that I mean edges can be rough in areas especially those dark dungeons. It's not bad, but I hope for eventual tweeking.
The auto save only aspect. I'd personally would love a save where you will additon. Especially for those quests.
Only 3 character types. But be aware with development there's a nice ablity to tweek this.

Pros
Good combat system.
Nice skill development system with a nice talent tree; basically a well designed character development system overall.
Clan system will be familar to anyone who ever played a certain Vampire roleplaying game.
Story line is excellent.

Basically if you ever wanted a good RPG dungeon crawler Vampire themed game you have to try this. Though in development even this early addition is a joy to play.
