In a nutshell: I'm hunting for a reason to keep playing this game.

0:00 This game's publisher actually recommended it to me via tweet just yesterday. The web site's suggestion that I "experience the epic romance" made it somewhat of a no brainer for a trial play.

0:01 The title screen features a hungry looking vampire with a reclining redhead laying on his lap, her neck deliciously exposed

0:02 An old crone stands over a bubbling green cauldron. "Beyond a cursed forest lies a crumbling castle. Inside a witch keeps her vampire, Damon, under her spell." Apparently her spell involves lying with him in some tangled sheets. "Damon, my love, go to the village and fetch us something to eat..." "As you wish, Celeste... forever as you wish" He doesn't seem too happy about being a witch's slave. The crone tells us his salvation lies just out of his reach. "But the fates tell me of a mortal girl who may yet... who may... oh my." Aww... she's a bashful old crone.

0:04 "Chapter 1: The Search. Damon arrives in town in search of a meal." In a spare wooden shack, with meat hanging from the walls. My first goal is to close the shutters and shut out the torch-wielding people outside. "Don't let it escape back into the forest!" they cry. Two clicks and the shutters are closed. "The fates are impressed" rather easily, apparently.
