  • Summary: A Vampyre Story is the creation of Bill Tiller and his studio Autumn Moon Entertainment. A former employee of Lucas Arts, Tiller won himself a place in the hearts of adventure fans through his work on titles such as Steven Spielberg's "The Dig," the whip-cracking "Indiana Jones," and the legendary "The Curse of Monkey Island." The game tells the tale of the beautiful, gifted opera singer Mona De Lafitte, whose life is brought to an abrupt end by a vampire baron named Shrowdy Von Kiefer. Henceforth, she is doomed to a miserable existence as a creature of the night in Von Kiefer's gloomy castle. Confronted with her seemingly hopeless fate, she decides to run away and try to fulfil her dream of singing at the Paris Opera. Accompanied by her mischievous bat Froderick, Mona must face a number of challenges in her odyssey and learn not only to accept her vampire nature, but also to use her newly acquired vampiric abilities to her advantage.

  1. Vampyre Story is hilarious and witty point'n click adventure game with striking graphics and high quality voice acting. If you're looking for hard puzzles, maybe this isn't the game. But if you're looking for a strong adventure with a good plot and good characters Vampyre Story is an excellent choice. It's probably the best adventure of 2008. [Jan 2009]
  2. This series' beginning has brought us a game which fulfills the expectations and should please adventure fans, with more than enough durability and balance between its sections.
  3. A Vampyre Story is a humorous adventure, which provides many difficult mysteries and a lot of fun. The voice of the character Mona is very annoying in the German version, so install the English one.

    Most important is how much cheesy writing you are willing to put up with.
  5. Puzzles aren't too hard, but they aren't too easy. [Feb 2009, p.80]
  6. It is tough to fulfill six years of expectations and hope, but ultimately I liked and occasionally admired A Vampyre Story—and can't wait to see the improvements that can be made by this developer the second time around.
  7. A tragically flawed LucasArts tribute. [Jan 2009, p.80]
