Developer: Dontnod Entertainment
Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
Genre: Horror RPG
Release Date: TBA
Remember Me developer Dontnod has revealed its next game Vampyr, an upcoming horror RPG published by Focus Home Interactive.
The game was revealed in a tweet by Focus Home Interactive's UK PR agency Dead Good Media featuring the first piece of artwork.
The game is set just after World War One and players will take on the role of a doctor. He returns home while the Spanish Flu is going around, and is bitten by one of his patients. That bite transforms this doctor into a vampire.
Apparently the Y in the name relates to the choices in the game where the doctor faces moral quandaries as his doctor side tries to heal, while his vampire nature wants to kill and feed. The tag line for Vampyr is ‘Take blood. Save a life’. Choices won’t be clear cut with DONTNOD either. Vampyr also sees DONTNOD trying to start up a second development team within the studio so more projects can be worked on. Vampyr is still in early development so no release date has yet been confirmed.
DONTNOD are currently in the process of releasing Life Is Strange.
