New Screenshots for Dracula: Origin
Having successfully tackled the myth of Cthulhu in the award-winning Sherlock Holmes - The Awakened, Frogwares is once again venturing into a disturbing and fantastic universe, the world of the Prince of Darkness, in an adventure which combines romance, mystery and horror.
Young, charming and devout, Dracula was once an ardent defender of Christianity but lost his faith in God when he is abandoned by his one true love who marries another. Count Dracula then makes a pact with the Prince of Darkness, and becomes a vampire with an insatiable thirst for
blood and vengeance, doomed to eternal damnation.
In the game, you play the role of Professor Van Helsing, the celebrated vampire hunter, on the hunt for Dracula, while Dracula himself is on a quest for a mysterious manuscript which will give him the power to raise the dead. Your goal is to prevent Dracula from finding and using this
manuscript, but also to kill him, in order to liberate the souls of all those who have had the misfortune to cross his path.
Using conventional Point & Click gameplay, Dracula: Origin is a superb adventure supported by impeccable graphics and a rich storyline which takes you to London, Egypt, Austria, and of course, to Transylvania, the famous home of the great vampire. Through a combination of 2D
environments and animated 3D characters, the game faithfully reproduces the world imagined by celebrated author Bram Stoker, with all its associated motifs (horror, love, blood, crucifixes, stakes, garlic, etc.), in a disturbing, fully-realized and absorbing Gothic atmosphere.
Dracula: Origin for Windows is set for release in May 2008.
