DontNod Talks Morality, Inspiration, And More

The wait for Vampyr may have been pushed into next year, but it’s allowed Dontnod to ensure they capitalize on their past experiences and explore a new kind of video game vampire.

Originally planned for release in October of 2017, Dontnod delayed their newest project into spring of 2018 to ensure the game could be polished and made into the best experience possible. And for good reason: In addition to being a new I.P., Vampyr represents a realization of their experience gained from both the Life is Strange series and Remember Me.

“In a way, we can consider that Vampyr is the child of Dontnod's first two projects: We return to a game mechanic based on fighting and confrontation, as in Remember Me, and at the same time we return to the mechanics of the choices and consequences freely left to the players, as in Life is Strange,” says game director Philippe Moreau.

Lovecraft, Majora's Mask, And Dickens Combine In This Indie Narrative-Adventure

Lovecraft, Majora's Mask, And Dickens Combine In This Indie Narrative-Adventure

Something feels off about the city in A Place for the Unwilling, a narrative adventure game from the Madrid-based indie developer AlPixel Games. Black smoke spews from the chimneys of homes and factories, friendly faces hide secrets, and a sense of mysterious, unknown dread permeates the streets of this Dickensian city.

In A Place for the Unwilling, which is due out next year on PC and Mac, AlPixel crafts a Dickensian world with a visually striking style that begs you to explore its darkest corners all while the hands of a ticking clock remind you the end is nigh.

The intriguing mysteries of the city and darkly humorous tone draw you in, but it’s the Majora’s Mask-style ticking clock mechanic that spices up the game’s narrative-adventure tropes. It adds urgency to a genre that usually allows you to play at your own pace. Although you can guide your character around the city, which is viewed from an isometric perspective, talk with NPCs, and add information to your journal and inventory, the clock is always ticking, except during conversations. The mechanic also makes choices that often seem insignificant – who to talk to, what area to explore – much more important.
