Kalypso Media Announces ‘Dark’
Germany’s Gamestar has broke the news of Kalypso Media’s next game, a stealth/RPG mashup about vampires called Dark. Dark centers on a character named Eric Bane “a new vampire who wakes up one day in a busy bar with other vampires and without memory.” The game will feature what they’re calling ‘powerful vampire abilities’, which is good because lame vampire abilities don’t make for a good game; abilities include teleportation and becoming invisible.
The plot is a combo of Memento and Nosferatu. Eric Bane wakes up in a creepy vampire bar with no memory of who he is, how he got there, the usual amnesia tropes. Players will spend the game trying to unravel the mystery of Bane’s past, and fight plenty of enemies along the way. The game will feature a cell shaded look (though its doubtful it will look like Wind Waker, even if PLEASE LOOK LIKE WIND WAKER), and was debuted this weekend at the Role Play Convention in Cologne, Germany.
