I'm super excited, I hear they are taking a lot of inspiration from Twilight.

Are they trying to one-up BioWare's in the hilariously bad romance department?

If Remember Me is anything to go by, Vampyr will probably end up more Redemption than Bloodlines. Linear, action heavy and plot focused.

Just noticed the 'Entertainement' typo on the poster.

I only have one game to go by as to judge Dontnod's abilities as a developer, Remember Me, which was frankly not good.  Still, maybe this genre will fit them better and I wouldn't mind a vampire RPG, at least vampires aren't nearly as ****ed out as zombies.  I'll be interested to hear more about it once details about the game come out.


Yeah, that's what scares me too. Remember Me looked gorgeous and the presentation was great but everything else was pretty much mediocre. But maybe they have learned from that game and I am itching for a vampire themed RPG.

Who do they think they are? Capcom?

I'm also a big Bloodlines fan and would love for this to succeed.

 

I was also surprised to see "kappa" on that list.

 

吸血鬼 (kyuuketsuki) = vampire in Japanese. It makes sense character-wise.

吸 - suck

血 - blood

鬼 - devil/ogre etc.

 

Hengeyokai is probably 変化妖怪

Henge meaning "to change" (since it wears anothers skin I guess) and Yokai, as Gromnir has said, is a generic term for bad spirits.

 

As others have pointed out, a kappa is a completely different mythological creature. Which makes me wonder what else on that list is inaccurate.
Nevertheless, I think that's how fantasy/fiction evolves. Taking a myth from another culture and putting a new spin on it. I don't mind the spelling as long as its a good game!

Honestly, I preferred Redemption (well, the first part of it), but that's because vampires running around with guns always seems weird to me, and I pretty much hate non-cover-based shooters.

I'm mildly excited at the prospect of a vampire RPG but the "action-RPG" bit is helping to lower my expectations

Kappa? LOL are you serious with that japan or is that some trollish attempt

It's bull certainly. Kappa are the mythological equalivants of Panda bears. They wouldn't survive 5 minuites out of a zoo.

Plus that's the World of Darkness for you, that grouped various names together, and mashed up several to create "new ones"

Hengeyokai was the generic "China/Japan" term for shapeshifters in the WoD.

Kind of like Kuei-Jin was the mashed up name for their Asian specific brand of Vampires.

 

Remember, it was a roleplaying game. They didn't stress that much over Etymology. ;)

I have no comments re: the game/developer, but I rather like the jacket the guy is wearing in the poster - and the fedora on the guy in the background. Also that it's apparently set in a WW1 period vs. some made up dark fantasyland world or something. Not that I know how legit the setting will be. Could be an alternate WW1 universe for all I know.

I'm definitely hopeful it will be good. I really liked the world in Remember Me, but the actual game was pretty drab.

:p

 

I just meant that it may not be a very historically accurate version of ww1 universe, even outside of the vampires.  Like when they make those periods a lot more tech advanced in some movies etc. :lol:

I have tried their last game and first attempt to make an RPG, Mars: War Logs, on Steam.  I did not finish it but I will if I ever get the time to play it again.  It was not great, but it was not too bad either.  I actually think most of you would enjoy it.    In some ways Mars: War Logs was quite reminiscent of the early 3D RPG from Troika and BioWare back in the early 2000s.  A very interesting/unique premise and world.  (Started as a prison escape on a cyberpunk Mars, and then got dragged into some sort of planetary politics and civil war over the limited water resource - that is unique.) So much potentials, yet flawed due to limited budget, overreaching and uneven gameplay.   But it was a good attempt.

 

I think they are making a sequel called Technomancer.  Hopefully their will do better because the world they had created for the first game was definitely a  unique and very interesting one.
