Although the news that A Vampyre Story had found a worldwide publisher was first reported last week, today the mystery partner was at last revealed. In a press release, German publisher Crimson Cow has announced that it owns the worldwide publishing rights to Autumn Moon's much-anticipated comic adventure.
The lack of familiarity with Crimson Cow outside of Germany may revive unwanted memories of AVS's first ill-fated publishing agreement, but the new publisher is well established in Germany, and no stranger to adventures, having released the German versions of such titles as Runaway and Fenimore Fillmore: Wanted since its inception in 2002.
A Vampyre Story, a classic point and click adventure that blends 2D and 3D technologies, casts players in the role of "the beautiful, gifted opera singer Mona De Lafitte, whose life is brought to an abrupt end by a vampire baron named Shrowdy von Kiefer. Henceforth, she is doomed to a miserable existence as the unwilling companion of the vampire in his gloomy castle. Fate smiles on her briefly when her undead captor is destroyed. Seizing the opportunity, Mona runs away from Baron von Kiefer and tries to fulfill her dream of singing at the Paris Opera. Accompanied by her mischievous bat Froderick, Mona must face a number of challenges in her odyssey and learn not only to accept her vampire nature, but also to use the abilities she has acquired to her advantage."
