Trailer caravan rolls out of Games Convention in Leipzig
The Games Convention in GC always brings a flood of new adventure trailers, and this year is no exception, as three new videos are now available.
First in line is Autumn Moon's A Vampyre Story, which is gearing up for its long-awaited fall release with a new teaser. The "guided tour through Draxylvania" shows a nice sampling of in-game footage, providing a short-but-sweet glimpse of the many stylish characters and locations players will encounter as they guide Mona, gifted singer-turned-vampire, and her mischievous bat pal Froderick towards her dream of singing in the Paris Opera. This 55 MB video can be downloaded directly from the official website.
The debut trailer for Momentum's Culpa Innata II: Chaos Rising hints mysteriously at the next adventure for Peace Officer Phoenix Wallis. First announced at the GC and targeting a fall 2009 release, the sequel is a continuation of last year's title, with Phoenix heading into the "rogue state" of Russia to continue her investigation of a shocking series of deaths in the supposedly-idyllic World Union, even as she begins to question her own worldviews. This time out, she'll be accompanied by a second playable character, Russian detective Anatoly Pavlov. The 33 MB trailer can be downloaded (in English) from the German site Adventure-Treff. Note that the trailer contains nudity, so discretion is advised.
The latest adventure from Future Games is also now on display in the first trailer for Alter Ego. Referred to by its developers as a "successor" to Black Mirror (though not to be confused with the official Black Mirror sequel), Alter Ego tells the 19th century story of two very distinct characters, police detective Bristol and a thief named Timothy Moor. A series of brutal murders follows the disappearance of the notorious Sir William's body from its grave, and both men find themselves drawn deep into what might be a supernatural mystery. The 18 MB English trailer can also be downloaded directly from Adventure-Treff.
