About This Game

It is a misty evening in the year of our lord 1912. The Pattersons, a poor but proud aristocratic family of the British nobility, and some of their closest friends, arrive at the castle Malachi residence of a wealthy Romanian Count. It is only three days until the family's eldest daughter, Rebecca, is to be wed to the count's son, uniting the family with the rich heritage of the Malachi, hopefully restoring its glory.

The only person missing is you, the brother of the bride, who is on your way from Stockholm, where you have defended the Union Jack in the noble art of fencing in the Olympics. You are to arrive later during the evening.

Sir Patterson is disappointed when the Count himself doesn't greet the family at their arrival, but still he lets the servants show them all to their rooms, without complaining too loudly. It is not until later--when the doors are slammed shut and locked behind them, that he realizes his mistake that they have become prisoners and are at the Count's mercy...

  • Highly intense, first-person shooter, survival horror
  • Enemies appearing shock style from everywhere
  • A massive gothic castle with hundreds of rooms awaits your arrival
  • The random architecture generator changes the layout of the castle and location of the characters every time you play
  • Non-linear style game play, where different parts of the castle can be explored in whatever order you want
  • Pick up and bring your foes down with classic vampire slayers like holy water, crucifixes, and wooden stakes or old-fashioned firearms like flintlock guns and muskets
  • Some vampires can only be slain with specific weapons, which challenges the player's weapon tactics
  • Spine-chilling scores and sound effects seamlessly orchestrated to keep you on the edge of your seat
  • Eerie 3D-graphics with real-time lighting, grainy screens, fog, and mist to give you that classic horror feel

Play this one alone and in the dark. The Boogeyman gives this title major props for the sheer terror it brings.

I've just finished the game, in about 2 hours, so it's a pretty short game. But holy crap, what an amazing two hours they were! It's pretty hard to find good vampire-related games but this one is a classic. I cannot recommend it enough!

Really interesting spooky shooter with slight random gen elements. Some rooms and the location of family members change in each playthrough. Big complaint is that you cannot adjust the resolution but thankfully you can find a hack out there that lets you do just that. GOod game, worth the 10 bux

Slender before Slender II before Amnesia.! Actually the game is great because its ten years old and the systems and gameplay still work in it! Its as good to me as System Shock 2. And like any roguelike... its REPLAYABLE! The time mechanic and quest of saving family is simillar to Dead Rising games. Great game and REALLY hoping the devs comeback to make a truly modeern sequel. No game captures the style of Nosferatu even today!
