Even battier sequel for A Vampyre Story announced

"A Bat's Tale" to pick up where the original game's story left off

To no one's surprise but the relief (and delight) of many, Autumn Moon has now officially announced the sequel to A Vampyre Story, launching a new website today for A Bat's Tale.

In the original game, Mona de Laffite and Froderick the bat managed to escape imprisonment from the evil Baron Shrowdy, but got only part of the way on the long journey to Mona's ultimate goal of resuming her opera singing career in France. A Bat's Tale will pick up where previous events left off, presenting the game's protagonists with a new set of locations to explore and obstacles to overcome. For details, who better than the developers themselves to describe the events of the sequel:

    Mona, the unwilling vampire mired deep in denial, is trapped by the vindictive Dr. Riga Mortus in his secret lab in Draxsylvania. Players will guide Froderick through the macabre town of Gothford Falls, where he will encounter old enemies and make some new friends, including inept magician The Great Fauxdini, conceited local Goth artist Raven Gothguy, and seriously lame serial killer Jack the Gimper among many others. Mona and Froderick will explore many interesting locations, such as Dr. Legume’s Home for the Sanity Challenged, an Executioner’s Practice Grounds, Mortus Labs, and, the scariest of all, a tavern full of disgruntled sports fans low on beer! Help Froderick free Mona by dressing as a little girl again, making his own zombie, and getting pummeled almost to death by the local hooligans, the notorious Belfry Boyz. Then play Mona as she scours through hundreds of shamelessly padded résumés looking for the perfect daytime guardian to watch over her as she returns to Paris!

To help mark the occasion of A Bat's Tale's unveiling, Autumn Moon has provided Adventure Gamers with an exclusive image of "The Mortus Monster", whom players will encounter in the new game.


And so the wait officially begins for the next installment in the ongoing Vampyre Story saga, though it does not yet have a target completion date. For more information, be sure to check out the game's official website, which will be updated later today.

This is great news… I just hate waiting. Although I really did enjoy A Vampyre Story so hopefully it’s worth the wait.

I’m disappointed to see Mona is back. Her obnoxious voice is probably half the reason I haven’t even been inspired to finish Vampyre Story. For some reason the game is just a dragger. I hope this next one improves the feel and pacing.

The news doesn’t mention that the in-game dialogs will be written by Clark and Ahern. Now THAT’S great news! There’s still a chance the series will be funny.
