This game is a steal at the DD price - buy it!

It is a wry and funny take on the whole vampire game genre. It's one of my favorites, and it was created by the same developer who gave us Mushroom Age and Dreamland.

One word: Funny!

Bpup named the other games by the developer, so if you know them you know what to expect - this time it's about a house that will be estimated by a bank guy, which has vampires in it. Very well done chapter introductions, and they tried lip-syncing this time.

Bought this one a few sales back and LOVED it! Extremely funny, with very dry, droll humor, between the dialogue and the expressions on the character's faces. The butler reminded me of a character you would see on a British TV sit-com (can just see him rolling his eyes when anyone tries to give him an order!); the lead male actor does look like a slightly puzzled Keanu Reeves; and one of the maids reminded me of Abi from NCIS. And I loved the dog! Definitely recommend as a different, fun type of game.

This game is an absolute HOOT more then worth the regular price and a steal as the DD.The game play is fun, but what really makes this game worthwhile are the characters and the tongue in cheek dialogue.

Yes it's about vampires; no it's not dark and dreary. A well-made VERY funny game. An absolute steal as a DD. And you WILL laugh out loud.

This is one of my favorites. It's nothing like all the other vampire games I've ever played. the characters are wonderful. Ditto to all stated above.

I think it's time to play iy again!

Oh if some of the CE's I have bought had been as much fun and as long as this game I would have been in heaven...*sigh.

Buy it!!! At the DD price this is a definite steal!!!!!

I have this game, paid full price and worth every penny. There are voice overs,not done really well, but the game is so funny. The butler in particular is a riot. All the mini-games are easy to figure out, except one. I never did get it. Have played this game many many times. What a great price for this game. Try it.

I LOVED this game! I was a hard core original Dark Shadows fan, and I suspect at least one of the developers is also. And yes, the lead looks like Keanu (although this guy can do an English accent) and the butler sounds like Alfred Hitchcock at times. I'd expect the maid to be working at Faulty Towers in the near future.

My favorite thing is to be able to interact with the scenery, and that's what this game did. Even my pet peeve to find, a corkscrew, was actually part of the story. So disappointed when it ended I think I will just play it over again. Love all the little details!

Might have been an OK game, but there are several turn offs.

Initial game load, and going from chapter to chapter took a while. Only saves the progress at the end of a chapter!!!

When moving between scenes, everything you already moved/opened goes back to the original position. Moved curtains around the bed three times, even though nothing there.

Didn't list all objects to find, although there was plenty of room at the top.

In one scene, there was a comment about one object (the anchor) but it was never used for anything. Other objects had no comment. In another scene, sparkles around one object, but nothing to do. Maybe it came later, but it was very confusing.

Read the threads about the furnace and boiler room. Klunky game play just makes it more annoying.

Puzzles and minigames not difficult at all, just time consuming.

NO BUY from me - even as a DD.

There are much better games around than this one.
