Watch 14 Minutes Of Vampyr Pre-Alpha Gameplay


Oh hey, I didn’t see this gameplay demo walkthrough-y footage of Vampyr [official site] come up earlier this week. It’s sort of from E3 but this version that doesn’t have people talking over the top so let’s have a look now. (In case you need a little refresher it’s that vampire-themed RPG from the Life Is Strange devs where you’re a vampire doctor and have to make decisions about who to kill to sate your thirst.)

Weird: Life Is Strange Live-Action Series Announced

The fab time-travelling teen drama Life Is Strange [official site] is to become a live-action television series, Square Enix announced today. Or whatever it is we’re supposed to call television shows made for cybernet screens. A “digital series”, they say. Netflix or something, perhaps? We don’t know who what where when – or why, really – but we do know Squeenix have partnered with Legendary’s Digital Studios arm for it.

Life Is Strange Episode 1 Going Free Tomorrow

The full first episode of Life Is Strange [official site] will tomorrow be set free forever. We’ve written a lot about one of our favourite games of 2015, about individual episodes as they each came out and giving them the Fail Forward and Cogwatch treatments and… it’s weird to be thinking about Episode 1 again. Now knowing where Life Is Strange was going and what it would become, I want to add disclaimers like “Look, Episode 1 is awkward but it really does find itself, okay.” I’m weirdly protective.

Feast Your Fangs On Vampyr’s First Footage

Johnathan Reid, the protagonist of upcoming action-RPG Vampyr [official site], is having a torrid time. As if fighting in The Great War wasn’t hard enough, he’s returned to a broken London that’s overcome with Spanish Flu. He’s a surgeon, which means he’s on the front lines of the epidemic, and he’s only just now discovered that he might be a vampire. In a job that deals directly with open wounds. Sheesh, that’s a moral meltdown right there.

After a smattering of screenshots, developers Dontnod – of Remember Me and Life is Strange fame – have now shown Vampyr’s first in-game footage at E3.

Vampyr: A Trinity Of Screenshots

Gather ye round, for I have some more screenshots from that Vampyr [official site] game Dontnod are working on. Afterlife is strange etc etc. You can click for the bigger version.

I will look up the specifics in a moment, but I just wanted to say that without the blood spurts the above image would be a nice “dude surprises his boyfriend of an evening” moment.

Death Is Strange: First Screens Of Dontnod’s Vampyr

When I first caught wind of Vampyr [official site], an action-RPG set in the Spanish Flu-ravaged streets of early 20th century London, I was quite excited. When I discovered Remember Me and Life Is Strange developers Dontnod Entertainment had their name on it, I was really quite excited. We haven’t seen the game in motion yet, but we can today have a look at its style in the first set of screenshots. They’re a bit, um…. on the bland side? Come see for yourself.

Life Is Strange Director’s Commentary Released

As much as I like Life Is Strange [official site], I’ll not pick up the episodic magiteen story’s new boxed Limited Edition. I will, however, gladly reap the benefits of this gussied-up new release. A new patch is out now for everyone, bringing improved subtitles in loads more languages, for starters. The promised Director’s Commentary is now here too, free for folks who own the game.
