A Vampyre Story serves up first taste in playable demo

Sampler for highly-anticipated comic adventure now available for download

It's so close you can taste it now, but just a little bite... A Vampyre Story, that is, as a playable demo for the highly-anticipated comic adventure has now been released for download.

The debut adventure from Autumn Moon casts players in the role of an opera singer-turned-vampire named Mona. With the help of her bat friend Froderick, Mona is determined to escape captivity from the wicked but laughably unimposing Baron Shrowdy and return to Paris to resume her career. To do that, however, she'll not only need to use her wits, but learn to develop her vampire powers as well.

The demo is not taken from the start of the game, but takes place at a cemetery where Mona is trying to find her own grave. Shrowdy has other plans for her, however, so first players will need to overcome the obstacles he places in the way. The 445 MB demo can be found at standard download sites like FileFront or WorthPlaying

I really liked the demo, but I think it suffered a little by throwing you too deep into the game without knowing all the set up. The graphics are awesome and look stunning on a widescreen monitor, which is more than can be said for most 2D adventures. The voice acting was a little hit and miss, but consider me excited…

I thought this demo was awesome. I think this game is going to be fantastic! I can’t wait!

The demo looked really nice and played really well.

There was something about the Mona’s animation that I found disturbing, the cape didn’t react so well with the animation, also weird that you can’t see any feet, but that’s the design the chose I guess.

Also the voice acting for Mona was a bit weird, but otherwise the game looks good and Play.com has nice pricing so everyone should go out and buy the game!

Mona’s voice acting made me want to die, but I really liked the bat. He’s so cute without actually being funny at all.

As noted in the forums the voice isn’t actually high pitch and annoying
in the full game.. Must have been something to do with the demos compression

I agree with thriftweed. I have the full game and I don’t think her voice is bad at all, in fact it really fits well. But I do recall when I tried the demo I was a bit put off by it.

Anyways this game is actually really fun. It’s been a while since I’ve played a game I enjoy this much.
