    Has anyone checked out this adventure game yet?

    It's awesome, done in a point and click fashion similar to LucasArts adventures of old, it features art style and interface similar to The Curse of Monkey Island and it's just like the old point n click adventure games from the 90s, the backgrounds are drawn in 2D while the characters and some items are rendered in 3D, very nice.

    I just started playing through it (there's a demo available btw) and it's really great :) very similar in essence to Monkey Island games (especially Curse of Monkey Island)

    Definitely check it out, here's the wiki:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Vampyre_Story

    It only runs in 1024x768 and doesn't support widescreen but with 4X AA the game looks very smooth, I don't know if a Mac version is available but I doubt it :eek: however with the very low system requirements it would probably run just fine under Parallels Desktop.

    A Vampyre Story on Mac

    I was able to download the game from deliver2mac.com. It worked and is a fun game. It cost me $30. It is a bit buggy though.

    DON'T turn on anti aliasing!
    I turned it on and it told me to restart, but after that the game would crash when I tried to start it. The way we fixed it was commenting out some Python code through a terminal, but you don't want to have to do that.

    Sometimes the characters don't line up with the objects they're manipulating, and there was one point when my bat friend was missing his head.

    I liked it overall, but I would like a game without all the bugs if they're going to charge $30. You can get it on PC for $20.

    Mac version played fine for me. Waiting for the next part of the story now... There was a few graphical glitches but nothing to bad. Buy the Mac version and support Mac game development. :)

    Played the demo and had to have the game. I bought it direct from VPLTD and have an issue which I think will soon be sorted out. It seems that whenever they (VPLTD) send me an e-mail to my SP's e-mail it never arrives at my in box. So, I have a game I can't play because I've been waiting to get the confirmation e-mail with my serial number (the down-loadable game will not play without one) and the e-mail has not arrived...
    OK not to panic, I go to their website and sign up for a support ticket..which requires - you guessed it an e-mail confirmation :mad:.
    I finally solved the issue (I think) by using my .me e-mail address in stead. Seems when they send me an e-mail to that account it works. Anyway, I still haven't received my serial number, but I'm betting I will soon now that they can send me e-mails that I actually get.:p

    Yes, thanks, I did. The problem is (I believe) solved by my .me e-mail. Apple to the rescue! ;)

    Is there combat in this game requiring reflexes? I'm thinking about getting it for my wife who is combat challenged. Thanks! :)
