With Dontnod Entertainment’s Vampyr being one of our games to look forward to this year, it’s a no-brainer for Dontnod to start putting out developer diaries. The first episode, entitled “Making Monsters”, was released just recently, and has the devs chatting it up about vampires, and the varying “types” found within the world of Vampyr.
Mixed in with the vampire talk is some gorgeous in-game footage, which is an obvious bonus when you think about it. Game director Philippe Moreau goes into detail about the morality of being a vampire, and how unlike, say, a werewolf, a vampire it “self-aware” of their nature. This ties into the fact that the game’s protagonist, Doctor Jonathan Reid, must make tough choices with his vampirism, including the killing of his victims to prevent them from harming others. It all plays into the ripple effect Jonathan’s actions have within the game.
Vampyr is scheduled for release this year on PC, XBox One and PlayStation 4.
