  • World of Darkness: Preludes

    Hi folks, surprised I didn't see this up already. Apparently WW (the guys planning on doing a new version of the older World of Darkness) put up a couple games on Steam today. Game might be a stretch though, apparently they're very much choose your own adventure style interactive fiction.

    There was a thread up but OP forum ninjas killed it for reasons that I can not talk about.

      The writing looks atrocious, from what I've seen so far. I'm an obsessive fan of the setting and it's bad enough I'm not rushing out to get them.

        I've liked the Mage one so far, though I'm not that far in. Haven't bought the Vampire one.

          Actually, if you bought the Mage one, I think you automatically have the Vampire one, I think they only come as a pair.

            Doesn't look like it, at least as far as iOS goes.

              Given who wrote it, I am not surprised.

                I bought VtM Preludes. It is interesting. I like the writing but the setting is.... darker. The Tremere are like a mini Sabbat. They went with the 'you are what you eat'. Games actually a little difficult. I keep getting my coterie killed. They name drop Velvet Velour. The Tremere kind of scare me. So... yeah.

                  From what I've seen of the Vampire one, it's an offensive, sloppy mess.

                  I really hope no one involved is working on 5e.

                  Female pronouns for me, please.

                    What offended you? If you can say without spoilers?

                      Trans porn star, maybe? I dunno. How's the mage one? Not a big MtA fan, but curious how it went.

                        I won't be buying, for reasons.

                          Just finished the Vampire one and it was... okay I guess. Not really my thing and didn't really make me feel like Masquerade. I never got that kind of vibe from the Tremere in general and think its kind of weird if that's the direction for them in VtM5E. Also, I kind of wish there was more game element to it in someway. The text thing was okay as a set-up, but having no kind of resource management or way of influencing the story was a bit of a let down. I'd have preferred something where some of my choices would have mattered more.

                            I agree with Gullinbursti. It was more a short choose-your-own-adventure book. But I enjoyed the characters overall.

                              Thete's a massively sexualized trans character who no shit says "So I'm trans and I have like a cock" as part of a story about how she gives strangers blowjobs.
