I am a huge fan of this world and so is my wife so when I heard about Vampire: The Masquerade — Out for Blood I knew I had to check it out. This is going to be one of the more interesting games released during the summer of 2021 and if you are expecting some kind of action-packed 3rd person RPG, you may be surprised to find out that this game is a text-based game.
A Novel That Is Interactive
The story of the game is brought to us by the very talented Jim Dattilo and it is set in the World of Darkness universe. Vampire: The Masquerade — Out for Blood I think has a very interesting story going on. The idea is that the town is being overrun by vampires and you need to study them, figure out how they tick, and try and exploit their weaknesses in order to try and get rid of them as best you can.
Two Sides Of A War
The town is under the influence of an old vampire called, Chastain and being the badass vampire hunter that you are, you are not going to stand for this. What I think sounds really interesting about the game is that there is a kind of vampire civil war thing going on. There are a group of younger vampires that want to rise up against Chastain and you can decide if you want to work with them or just try and destroy every last vampire.
Reading Is Cool
There are no graphics in this game… that is right, no graphics. This game is 100 percent text-based and if you played text-based adventures back in the day, Vampire: The Masquerade — Out for Blood is probably going to be something you get a big kick out of. You have to read the story and then you will be given a selection of options so that you can make a decision and move things forward. There are different paths, outcomes and so on so think about the choices that you are making.
Be Your Own Vampire
While this is a text-based game, you do have a lot of things that you can work with as well as reading the story. For example, you can create your character and you can give them a personality, various traits and stats, and so on. It is like if you were making a character in one of the other Vampire: The Masquerade video games or tabletop games. You can talk and build relationships with other characters which sounds very interesting.
I know that to some people, Vampire: The Masquerade — Out for Blood will seem like the lamest video game ever made! However, text-based games were very popular back in the day and this is a fun throwback to that. I do think that at the end of the day a game like this is going to sink or swim by its story and if you like vampires and this series I am pretty confident that the story is going to be fantastic.
