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

So uh this game managed to make me jump more than outlast. it's also 100x as fine. Freaking awesome. I doubted buying it because i though "eh it's one of those 99 cent sale games it'll end up being ♥♥♥♥" but it really really really REALLY wasn't. Havn't played it for long but i can definitely see myself wasting a good amount of time on this excellent game and it's aged really well. Just wish i'd managed to play it sooner.

First, yes, the game is old. But it's solid, that's what really matters for me and for a hell lot of people on steam. Now, let's cut the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t, here's what you get:
- The game is still very atmospheric regardless of it's age.
- In each playthrough some stuff like items and enemies are replaced, so you never know what's coming for ya.
- Sudden ambushes. Still creepy.
- Escorting people is actually enjoyable! Now that's something i respect. Haven't seen it in a while.
- Good voice acting and sound effects. OH BOY! the sound effects.
- Crucifix, wooden stake, holy water. We're talking REAL vampire hunting here.
- Paid less than a dollar for it on sale.

The only cons I found so far:
- Melee fighting, wich is a little tricky and dangerous.
- Discarding remaining bullets in the "clip" when reloading.

Overall, the game is a pearl. It have been there a long time, in the botton of the ocean. But the shell is open, you just need to get it.
