Another Vampire: The Masquerade Game
« on: May 14, 2019, 05:58:00 PM »
Well this very surprising but Bloodlines 2 isn´t the only new Vampire game in the making.
I double check this but its really not Werewolf.

Here the Press Release:
"After a first foray into the World of Darkness universe with Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood, BIGBEN is proud to announce that its partnership with Paradox will be extended and that a game under theVampire: The Masquerade licence is in development. Developed by Big Bad Wolf, creators of the episodic adventure game The Council, the game aims to define a new genre: the narrative RPG, inspired by the rules of the tabletop RPG. The studio will share more information at Gamescom in August."

Narrative RPG? Some time ago I found a comic book with this premise. Like a book game (if you want to open the door go to page 7, if you want to check the hallway to to page 15) but you have also the classic RPG sheet for some key events, like a fight or an escape. In the last number you take the role of ronald reagan



Priceless (except the 1.45£)

Huh. I hadn't heard of this, thanks for letting us know. Until I hear more, I'm curious but hardly putting much hope into it. If it's a kind of game that I would hate, then no matter what it's based on I wouldn't like it. #pessimism4life

Well... we never thought we were getting another VTM videogame... now we're getting two.

Is narrative RPG a fancy way to say the game will be less combat oriented, or are we getting a visual novel with stats regulating our dialogues? Not that I'd mind either of those, if the writing is good and the systems are interesting, but I wish they were clearer about what they mean, especially when they make bold claims about "new genres". I have a certain distaste for marketing-speak.

I'll be laughing for a whole day if it turns out to be a virtual board game.

I just assume they mean there will be more in depth characters and interesting conversations, not that it will be a glorified interactive novel.

Wasn't their previous game an interactive novel? That's why I thought it might be the case.

There's going to have a combat system though and its going to be first person.  That doesn't really scream "Interactive Novel".  Though I do love those.  But that wouldn't be a Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines game.

Wait, where did they say there was going to be a combat system?

This isn't about Bloodlines 2, in case that's where the confusion comes from.

Sorry, my bad. I shouldn't be responding to these when I am dead tired. It was the wee hours of the morning and I hadn't been to bed yet. Yep, I was confused when I made that last response which is dumb because I knew that we weren't talking about Bloodlines 2 when I originally started participating in this thread.  *blush of life*

Just introduce me to a nice ghoulette and we are fine? XD XD XD

This is the area for Bloodlines 2 discussion, after all, mistakes happen. :)
