Fun concept, storytelling through the records left behind by the participants. It's great for mysteries. Doesn't work in a lot of places here though. Parts where there is action are silly. (Who texts their friend to say they're running away in such'n'such way?) There is little sense of just how much time is passing. (Text>pause>text>slightly longer pause> text from some time later) Visual style is odd as well. (I saw this guy who looked interesting. Instead of taking a picture discreetly, or even openly, I went to the art supply place and made an abstract painting of him and how he made me feel.) More important than any of that, though, is that I made it to the second to last chapter, stopped to take care of real life business, and when I got back to it, the app had lost my progress and reset all the way back to the beginning. If the writing is flawed, the visuals are flawed, and the function of the app itself is flawed, what is the point?
The game started out enjoyable, and I was even considering buying the other mage game. However the recent update wiped my save file, and I was nearly complete. Unfortunately I can't recommend buying a game that resets saves whenever there's an update.
I loved it but the last update wiped my save progress :(
World of darkness is back in a new age of android and iOS - and it's bloody satisfying. Fans of paper and cyber versions of Vampire are done waiting and White Wolf shares the sentiment. This time we are shown the world from a text message perspective - as we delve deeper and deeper into realms of blood. Beautifully written lines and unique art style - mixed with haunting melodies - bring us closer to the legendary role playing setting. Vampire - Prelude is definitely worth every penny - promising more quality entertainment in the future.
Finally got around to buying this one. I feel like I have got over an hour into it I suppose. Thus far I love it. Its a good old fashion ''choose your own adventure'' read essentially, and really captures the feel of Masquerade in my opinion. There were moments of genuine tension at times (Im not finished yet, I just escaped the party) and you really have to think of which choices will keep you alive. Its a great casual game if you only have 15-20 minutes at a time to delve in or if you like reading, I could easily see one spending hours in it. little tidbits of ambient stress music add to the feel. Very immersive though I found much of the dialogue to be quite juvenile (possibly makes sense for the characters I suppose) I may just be on VtM buzz at the moment with all the news but overall, Im digging it.
Feels VERY WoD and Vampire tM/R. The setting and the mood are on point. If you're a fan, I think you'll love this game as I did. Some dialogs are also quite funny. The writers did an excellent job. And it's also a clever, up-to-date way to tell a story. And the music was very good! I only have three complaints: (1) I wish it was longer; (2) the art could really have been better, though I did like the style (Alfonso's drawing is one of the best ones); (3) and this is the really important one: the choices that do or do not kill you sometimes feel kinda random, so many times it's just guessing. If you make further games like this (which I REALLY hope you do), please improve on this. Other than that: great game, please make more!
