Ex-LucasArts crew go 'Goth' in PC's a Vampyre story

A group of ex-employees of the famous Sci-Fi producer have decided to gather up and re-live the good old days of original gameplay by introducing a game of the gothic nature. A Vampyre Story is a promise by them to bring back more unique and original form of gaming storyline.

These clever chappies have worked on Monkey Island and Grim Fandango, don'tcha know...

Remember LucasArts before the licensed days of Star Wars, Star Wars and um...Star Wars? These folks made their buck churning out numerous, incredibly original, quite ingenious point-and-click adventures, that were pretty damn good.

The good news is that some of them are back with a new company - Autumn Moon Entertainment - and a brand new adventure game, entitled A Vampyre Story.

As revealed in online mag The Inventory, A Vampyre Story is a point-and-click-styled outing with considerable technological advancements, and is described by its maker as 'Monkey Island meets Dracula'. It's a humorous, supernatural adventure that pays homage to the old Universal monster movies of the 1930s and 1940s.

Gamers control an unwilling opera singer turned vampire, as she bids to seek eternal peace (as well as making a starring role in a Parisian show). The visual style is very much that of old LucasArts aesthetic, with the developer inspired by past work on such titles as Escape From Monkey Island, Day Of The Tentacle, Curse Of Monkey Island and the incredible Grim Fandango.

There will also be a lot of vampire abilities to master, such as sucking blood, summoning werewolves and, possibly, controlling the weather.
