Vampires: The New Birth
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Welcome to our story-driven, Gothic tale, Vampires: The New Birth :)
You play as our protagonist Vinette, a young woman forever dragged into the world of vampires, and struggles against the challenges of adapting to a life of immortality, constant danger, and solitude.
You will learn the seductive secrets of the human psyche, turning patrons of nightclubs into your submissive vessels of blood. You'll prey upon the unsuspecting mortals from the shadows, to satiate your endless appetite.
But most of all: you must learn to cope with what some call a gift, and many more... an unforgivable curse.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This game is still early in development, so we're aware not everything will be perfect, so please keep that in mind. But I'm confident you'll enjoy our progress so far. Thanks :)

So, consider me interested. I have a coupe of questions though. How involved is the romance? Like is there an option for a f/f romance for example.
How long are you aiming for in the final product? How far along is it in development?
Thanks in advance for answering. See you on the other side
I just found about this visual novel demo, and I have to say it's amazing. Art is very good. Especially the music! Love the music! Small things I'd like to report, however, are... just itsy bitsy things I happened to notice. And yes, I DO know this is a demo, and that the game isn't done yet, but I'm just going to say this. Minor stuff to consider. First is, what I noticed about Vinette's posture. By posture, I mean how she's standing. At certain points, her posture looks as if she needs to pee or she's scared, while her expression denies both that she needs to take a good piss or that she's scared. Then again, this is just something that I'm reporting from a reader's perspective. It's not something too major, just that it looks unnatural. Another thing I notice is, Val's hair. The bouncer girl. Her flocks, too, look quite unnatural. Bent in strange ways, popping from here and there, looking as if she'd been electrocuted. Again, minor thing I noticed that just looks unnatural. Another thing is, fancy text. I've seen some VN devs with fancy text who haven't paid a lot attention to readability. Yes, the font is quite good, but it'd be a good addition to remember to add a choice for normal serif text on Settings in the future. Another thing, I noticed that at times when a character has a long sentence to say, the text sometimes overrides the border. This could be "fixed" by enlarging the blood-themed text border by a few pixels. I hope you the best of days and I've enjoyed this demo quite a lot! \o/
Thank you very much, Saiyoku. Or, arigatou gozaimasu :)
Believe me, I know those tiny little details. That's why I have to stress it's a demo and made from almost no money. But thankfully, fans like yourself have been forgiving of the minor imperfections, and hearing you say how much you enjoy this game is soooo much appreciated.
I see so many fun similarities to White Wolf's Vampire: the Masquerade. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but still, I certainly enjoyed it.
I don't think I've had myself clench up and want more from a vampire game in a long, long time. Can't wait for more!
Thanks so much for the kind comment :)
Yes, Vampires: The New Birth was definitely inspired by Vampire: The Masquerade, but we made a conscious effort to ensure we remained distinctive in our own series, but we're still fans :)
A new update with far more story is planned towards mid to late May, so expect more content on the horizon :)
Thanks for playing, and I'm glad you enjoyed the game.
Hi, I just finished watching the first episode. Your back-and-forth commentary is really funny and encouraged :) Also thanks for the feedback so far, an updated version will be ready soon, and you'll be one of the first to know. If YouTube is the fastest way to reach you, I'll message you there :)
