With gamer heaven, better known as E3, quickly approaching, news on upcoming video games is beginning to trickle in and a few indie game developers are using this time to showcase their goods in advance. Developer Neocore has just released a teaser trailer (see below) for their RPG adventure game The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, and while just a short teaser, it caught my attention.
“When night falls and the supernatural awake from their slumber, only the bravest souls will trespass unscathed. Independent developer NeocoreGames announced the entry of a brand-new IP entitled The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, an Action RPG filled with fierce and demonic battles, memorable characters, and a refreshingly unique story that brings the legendary vampire slayer to modern audiences. The upcoming title, loosely based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, is being developed for PC and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
Set in a gothic-noir universe resembling a fantastical 19th century Europe filled with monsters, magic, and weird technology, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will follow the son of the famed hunter, known in-game as Van Helsing, in a tale wrought with wry humor and snappy dialogue. Van Helsing, a larger-than-life hero possessing a dark yet romantic charm, will follow his path to the dismal land of Borgovia where former supernatural foes have enlisted his help to defeat a new scourge terrorizing the ravaged Eastern European city. With an assortment of extraordinary characters, an engrossing storyline, and a beautifully dark and gothic art style, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing looks to bring RPG enthusiasts an anachronistic adventure like no other.”
Check out the teaser trailer:
This teaser obviously didn’t reveal much, but more info will be available at E3. All I can say so far is that the artwork on the right and the graphics are really impressive, especially for an indie developer.
I am always happy about new vampire games and this case is no different. What are your thoughts on The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing?
