Surprisingly, for many years, past after the exit Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines In 2004, none of the major developers and publishers so really tried to make a classic RPG about the clan wars of vampires in a modern megalopolis.

There, in the city, you will have to work for different vampire clans (there are only five of them), to make a reputation, to then decide who you, and oppose their local emperor – he spoils life and gibbons, and ordinary mortals. The beauty is that at the very fact you are a hunter on monsters, which was killed, and then resurrected in the form of a Vurdalaka by an unknown “patron”. And at the end, being already a mattress, you will decide whether something human remains in you to destroy the great evil, or you are already completely on the dark side.

But at the same time no one bothers at any time to descend into the dungeon and turn the game into the gloomy Dungeon Crawler. There, in the catacombs, the levels each time they are randomly generated, you go down deeper and deeper, meet all the stronger enemies, overcome traps, looking for keys to doors, tryten to detect secret rooms and caches, crack the chests and painfully guess what to throw out from the inventoryto take this rare crossbow or dagger.Bloodlust Shadowhunter: Video Game OverviewAfter death, the hero can be revived in a safe z1.

However, the main thing is that you should always have at hand and in the catacombs, and in the city – these are bottles with blood: without it stopped regenerated endurance (it is needed for special blows in the near battle), health and mana.

Plus the dumpier above the resistance of fire and light.

Then choose the class class – this is conditionally, warrior, Magician (Witch) or Thief (Criminal). The choice affects the starting characteristics: the warrior is understandable, originally stronger, at the magician above the charisma and the skill of conviction, and the thief uses the increased reserves of agility to successfully solve from long-range weapons and crack the locks. The basic parameters, in turn, affect not only the level of health or mana, damage in the near battle and the like things, but also on the effectiveness of the use of skills.Bloodlust Shadowhunter: Video Game OverviewVampires, as usual, love painting.
Skilles are active, allowing you to call for spiders or rats in battle, throw “fireballs” and zippers, “Custom” protective auras and so on, and passive, defining a chance to open the lock or deactivate the trap.

Dark past

Someone is surprised that all this is done a very small group of developers, but William Fisher accumulated great experience in such conditions. Your first game, “horror” THE LAST HALF OF DARKNESS, He did in the 80s, and in zero actually alone released horror, such as The Last Half of Darkness: Society Of The Serpent Moon. It was really gloomy capable of scaring games. That is why B Bloodlust Shadowhunter everything is also very gloomy, atmospheric and generally as it should.

The author of these lines decided to engage in this quest later and often visited the gunsmith just to stretch. He asked every time, how, they say, successes. And then decided that he was inflated, and refused to have a business with me.
