Transylvania awaits you in this new Dark Romance game! Join Gabriel Dracula and his fiancé in the Carpathian Mountains as Gabriel’s vampire bloodline slowly unravels. Stop the evil vampire Tamash from unleashing his power over Gabriel and turn the handsome young man into a corrupted vampire in Dark Romance: Vampire Origins.
This marks the second time that the Dark Romance series has dabbled in the territory of vampires, the first time being the series’ very first game – Vampire in Love. Now with years of HOPA experience under their belt, Domini Games is able to deliver the vampire romance fantasy through a more engaging plot and better-paced storytelling. Although no elements in the storyline are entirely unique, the charming characters are definitely still worth rooting for.
While it might not be as creatively executed as in the series’ previous installment, Ashville, the two-perspectives gameplay remains interesting. This type of gameplay allows the player to gain insights into each protagonist’s mind and adds even more context to the storyline. It is a shame that the gameplay of Dark Romance: Vampire Origins cannot elevate this further, as it includes an overwhelming amount of recycled tasks and mundane puzzles. The hidden object scenes are sufficiently creatively, but again, nothing groundbreaking.
If you are a fan of Domini Games’ visual style, then you are in for a treat. Dark Romance: Vampire Origins is a total stunner! With detailed artwork, amazing animations, and deep colors – the game perfectly captures its dark fantasy theme through visuals that are both alluring and imaginative. The background music also does an effective job soundtracking the game and sets a mysterious mood.
Dark Romance: Vampire Origins has a satisfying length of roughly four hours, plus an hour-long bonus chapter. The Collector’s Edition contains all the extras you would want; a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, videos, soundtracks, replayable hidden object scenes, replayable puzzles, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, and a salon to decorate.
