It's nice to see them going in a different direction in an underutilised genre. Or perhaps there are plenty of vampire games, they're just almost entirely ubiquitously naff.
For as much as a buggy mess as Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines was (and still is, despite its community STILL fixing it!), it had a really nice story, great atmosphere, and one of the best haunted mansions in gaming. Handled like pure garbage, and I needed cheats to clear the final bosses, but it was still well worth playing through. It did the whole 20th century living thing, where vampires followed a code - the masquerade - to stay hidden, but there were those who would void it, and a vampire apocalypse prophecy for the player to live through. Pretty cool stuff, and based off of a board game if I'm not mistaken.
Hopefully these chaps can pull off something similar with a good deal more polish.
