Summer may mean sunshine, blue skies and good times for most, but not for Dracula. The Prince of Darkness hates daylight, of course, but now Facebook, Twitter, and other social media have made it impossible for Drac to stay out of the limelight as well. Now, his coffin has been discovered, and it’s up to you to defend it from the hordes of oddballs out to make a name for themselves.
Vampire Season is a new iOS game from developers 6waves and Brainz, and it’s due to hit the App Store on June 28th. The game will be familiar to anyone who has played a tower defense game before, but Vampire Season twists up the action by having players defend an unusual point of contention – Big Dracula himself – with a varied assortment of ghouls and zombies. And what are they protecting Dracula from? Isn’t it obvious? Interior decorators! Seriously….plus lots of other conventional and unconventional enemies as well. In-app purchases and upgrades are available, but game currency is also generated in game as you complete levels.
Look for the horror to be unleashed in just a few weeks.
The supernatural and vampires, in particular, are big business in the world of literature and cinema at the moment. One of the most popular authors in the field is that of Richelle Mead, famed for the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines novels. iOS users now get to delve even further into that world via the official app, The World of Richelle Mead, that’s just hit the store.
The World of Richelle Mead is a free app that allows users to connect with other fans around the world, while also staying up to date with all the latest news about the author. Exclusive content is provided such as behind the scenes notes and stories, photos and illustrations, plus a great video library of Richelle Mead’s past interviews.
An interactive character map, catering both for new readers and avid fans goes one step further to making the app an essential addition. There’s also the possibility of buying the six ebooks in the Vampire Academy series through the app, and previewing some of the content beforehand.
For those who live Richelle Mead’s writing, or who think they might learn to adore it, this is a great app to try. The World of Richelle Mead is out now for both iPhone and iPad, and it’s free.
It’s a little bit dark, it’s a little bit sexy, it’s the first teaser trailer for the upcoming MMORPG, Dark Legends. This MMMORPG (mobile massively multiplayer online role playing game – you heard it here first, folks –Ed.) centers on secret factions of vampires, werewolves, demons, and the humans trying to exterminate these undead threats. The player plays a recently awakened vampire under the direction of the vampire that turned them in a fight for survival against the human mobs that have recently been alerted to the existence of the undead.
The trailer doesn’t reveal much in the way of gameplay, but it does set a certain tone for the upcoming game. Dark Legends is being developed by Spacetime Studios, who also developed the critically acclaimed MMOs Star Legends and Pocket Legends. Dark Legends is set for release sometime in the first quarter of this year for iOS, Android, and Chrome. Take a look at the teaser trailer below to get an idea of what’s in store.
