A Vampire Story
  • GENREAdventure
Deep within the walls of a gloomy castle in the equally gloomy land of Draxsylvania, the young, gifted opera singer Mona De Lafitte is held captive by her tormentor, vampire Baron Shrowdy von Kiefer. Ever since she was transformed into a vampire by Shrowdy and whisked off to Draxsylvania, her greatest wish has been to return to Paris, continue her singing career, and one day become a star at the Paris Opera.

When Shrowdy fails to return from a nightly foray, she at last sees an opportunity to flee. Together with her only friend and confidant, a cheeky bat named Froderick, she escapes from her prison and tries to find her way back to Paris. During her flight through Draxsylvania, where she encounters some strange inhabitants and some even stranger challenges, Mona must learn not only to accept her vampire nature, but also to use the abilities she has acquired to her advantage.

The classic adventure "A Vampyre Story" is penned by Bill Tiller, who was involved in the creation of such milestones of the genre as "The Dig" and "The Curse of Monkey Island". Players use a point-and-click interface to direct Mona and Froderick through a richly detailed world consisting of more than 30 beautifully hand-painted locations that utilizes real time 'Multiplane' camera technology, that entice the viewer to examine and explore. On her puzzle-filled journey to Paris, Mona meets more than 20 3D-characters, ranging from the just plane silly to the very strange, in over 15 hours of brain-teasing fun.

  1. Why can't excellent games be produced?
    by Paola Di Bello, Italy - Jan 4th 2014

    I loved this game: the story, the riddles, the puzzles, not mentioning the character design and the dialogues... I thought I finally found a gold mine of point and click games. However, I was very disappointed when I found out they won't be producing the sequel of the game. Too good to be true, as usual.
    Nonetheless, the game is awesome and deserves your attention, all of you point and click geeks out there! Really funny and intelligent!

  3. Nice effort
    by NorthernSpruce, Canada - Nov 3rd 2013

    A lot of effort went into this game but there is *so* much talking and the puzzles are are not that interesting. Bugs throughout: at points it is impossible to save or quit so you have force quit and lose any progress, and at points there is no way to fast forward the lengthy speeches with the space bar. The humour was pretty vulgar, and torture is often used as a comic theme, which I find offensive. I regret wasting money on this since I don't enjoy it at all.
