About the 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...

  • Eerie 3D-graphics with real-time lighting, grainy screens, fog, and mist to give you that classic horror feel

A well-made game, bringing back the true terrors of Vampires and ancient lore. It's entire castle is actually randomly generated, so it allows for a generally new experience each time through.

Off the bat, the graphics are rather outdated, but dark, dreary and remind me alot of the static-feeling of Silent Hill. On a lighter note, the gameplay reminds me a lot of Doom and Wolfenstein. I feel that they could update some of the graphics, such as being able to slide the priest around while he's on the floor and vampires falling through walls. Also, I came upon a glitch where the vampire actually disappeared and attacked me while invisible. If not for his shadow on the ground, I would've been killed by him.

The weapons are relatively normal for horror-survival, being a melee, a gun, and several other items, but it also adds a new twist with a cruicifix that stuns enemies and even kills the Vampires. Their range of swings are pretty far, even when you've got them in a corner beating them to death, so it feels slightly unfair.

The monsters are creepy-looking, able to give me a good jump on several occasions, and even make sense in the areas they are in. The satanic spawn portal looks very creepy and gives you the sense of impending doom when walking in on one.

Audio could be better. The grunts and groans come off as cliche and often times feel half-♥♥♥♥♥. In the end, they actually hinder the experience a bit. The cries of the monsters are scary and leave me worried, so as long as they don't hit me, I feel that the game plays well.

Overall, it's a great game so far, but I wish they'd make an update and fix up some of the glitches. 3/4

This game is awesome in a nutshell.

Pros
Soundtrack is great, best in combat
Tense not scary but real tense, the music helps
Enemys are nicely varied nothing special
Nice randomization of creatures, items and people
Controls nicely
Challenging without being unfair

Cons
No options what so ever you need a outside tool to change screen ratio, yet that works perfectly
voice acting, james... james... james... tear my ears off
no crouching you'd be surprised how its needed sometimes
numbers are sometimes hard to see or are awkward
Edit also a con. Ai is terrible playable yet swarm like.

In my opinion well worth it but as always wait for a steam sale.

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

This game is just strangely amazing. It's a FPS/survival horror/rouge-lite mix up with some randomly generated rooms and areas. The game is hard as ♥♥♥♥, but that only adds to the atmosphere of it. You'll be on your toes throughout the whole thing, checking every single corner of a room as you enter, making sure you wont get mauled by some dog, sliced up by some nut-case with a scythe, or fondled by a ghost (regardless, these things will happen to you anyway). What's beautiful about this game is how techincally awful it is. The game isn't the best looking (although in my opinion I feel the graphics style compliments the atmosphere so much I think it looks amazing) a lot of sounds and pieces of music are stock, you cant customize item hotkeys (so something like the stake is all the way at "8") and there are no video settings to change from so you'll need a patch. The whole was only made by a few swedish guys, and honestly, I dont think the game would have been any better without this low budget feel. It gives off that B movie feeling and the mechanics and atmosphere are great enough as it is.

Get this game. Get sp00ked. Get rektd. Get the pistol from one of the enemies in the room through the furthest door on the outer side of the East Wing (Where the priests falls from) before you go inside the main East Wing.

This is my favorite PC game.

I've grown up with games like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Fatal Frame etc. Then i discovered Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi. This game is for me a synonym to survival horror game. It has perfect atmosphere and suitable weapons against Evil.

WARNING! This game has bad graphics and sound. It's buggy as hell. Hit detection screws you over.

Have fun.
