Since Romancelvania’s Kickstarter campaign successful funding, with additional support from Epic Games’ Mega Grant Fund, an early snapshot of the game is now available to the public for the first time, inviting gamers to explore Transylvania as a lovelorn, brooding Drac, the game’s lead protagonist, in the first “episode” of this adventure.
The game will be coming to Steam, PS5, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch and will release early 2023. Romancelvania is currently available to wishlist via Steam.
“If I’m being honest, letting the unsuspecting public demo Romancelvania in this year’s Steam Next Fest showcase is the only ethical thing to do,” said Bill Gardner. The Creative Director went on to explain that “if we just up and released Drac’s outlandish, satirical journey to smash his way back to happiness, they may not be able to handle it. I mean, people need to ease into the absurdity of classic monsters starring in a reality dating show. Throw in stuff like octopuses with gats, flying spaghetti monster bosses, and a fancy manwolf and yeah, people need to adjust to the wonderfully bizarre world of Romancelvania!”
Romancelvania’s key features include:
- FALL IN LOVE WITH A MONSTER: Discover the “human” inside each monster as you romance, befriend or eliminate a cast of 12 fully-voiced supernatural contestants! Taking your relationships to the next level progresses your own strength, abilities, and more.
- WATCH YOUR SHOWMANCE UNFOLD: It’s not a reality show until there’s some drama! Make-up or break-up – we don’t judge! With a weaving story full of dialogue and narrative options, as well as the ability to choose your body type and voice, become the ultimate decision-maker in YOUR story.
- EXPLORE… TRANSYLVANIA? From the voluptuous Smashmounds, to the back alleys of Booty Bay, and everything in between, discover an unpredictable, interconnected world filled with monsters to recruit, hidden date spots, and outlandish baddies and boss encounters.
- SATISFY YOUR (BLOOD)LUST: As the former glorious Drac, stripped of their old powers, it’s up to you to become your best bloodthirsty self. Vanquish goons with iconic weapons, elementals, bats, and even Medusa’s “Headouken!” on the road to your victorious rampage in this side-scrolling platformer.
