Vampire Adventure Releases in Time for the Holidays

The Adventure Company, a leading

for Windows® has shipped to retail stores across North America.

This hilarious adventure is the
brainchild of adventure gaming veteran, Bill Tiller, known for the adventure
classics The Curse of Monkey Island, The Dig and Indiana Jones. It’s got a cast
of more than 20 characters each with their own entertaining personality and more
than 30 hand-drawn locations in a richly-detailed world. “Adventure gamers
should agree that it’s been worth the wait for A Vampyre Story, all the elements
are in place to make it a classic,” said Byron Gaum, Product Manager at The
Adventure Company. “Gorgeous graphics, vast environments to explore and a
hilarious sidekick will keep you entertained for hours!”


Deep within the walls of a gloomy
castle in the equally gloomy land of Draxsylvania, the young, gifted opera
singer Mona De Lafitte is held captive by her tormentor, vampire Baron Shrowdy
von Kiefer. Ever since she was transformed into a vampire by Shrowdy and whisked
off to Draxsylvania, her greatest wish has been to return to Paris, continue her
singing career, and one day become a star at the Paris Opera.

When Shrowdy fails to return from a
nightly foray, she at last sees an opportunity to flee. Together with her only
friend and confidant, a cheeky bat named Froderick, she escapes from her prison
and tries to find her way back to Paris. During her flight through Draxsylvania,
where she encounters some strange inhabitants and some even stranger challenges,
Mona must learn not only to accept her vampire nature, but also to use the
abilities she has acquired to her advantage.
