Donor: A Vampire Victim's Tale [FINAL DRAFT COMPLETE. LAST UPDATE 08.22.2020]

Reminds me of this quote from Hilary Mantel:

“You can be merry with [him], you can share a joke with him. But as Thomas More used to say, it’s like sporting with a tamed lion. You tousle its mane and pull its ears, but all the time you’re thinking, those claws, those claws, those claws.”

Although I suppose, in this case, fangs would be more appropriate :smile: But I think this game recreates the sentiment perfectly.

Congratulations on the good news about publication, @Elena_H I can’t wait to support your work when it comes out.

Are there cheats?

This demo was desgined to do a lot of cheating. You can play any chapter and alter your stats before you play. You can also view all of the endings.

Thank you so much @PrismaticSpace @Victoriya @Anathema & @ThatsOk!

Please know that you don’t have to buy the game to feel like you’re supporting my work, btw. It might sound a little cheesy, but the encouragement I’ve received on this forum has been more support than I could’ve possibly hoped for. And I just can’t thank everyone enough. :hugs:

Also regarding cheats, in addition to the quickstarts that Victoriya mentioned, there is a hints/tips section you can view via the stats page that provides info on how to unlock just about all of the endings/achievements. And if all else fails, I’m always happy to answer any questions you might have.

Best,
Elena

How would Richard reacting hearing Samantha call him “Dad”? I mean, I imagine he is quite fatherly to her so it makes sense if she did call him that on accident.

:blush: I think Richard would be deeply flattered, but ultimately uncomfortable with prolonged use of the term (ya know, given that he ate her real daddy and all…). So he’d probably insist that Samantha refer to him as “Uncle Rich” and secretly cherish the memory of that one time she accidentally called him the wrong name.

How would Richard react to different men flirting with Lenore (Roommate ending)? Though I assume she occasionally leaves the house with Rich. Definitely a weird one-sided attraction with these characters. My Lenore is obsessed with Richard but he doesn’t really care much about her other than her blood. Is that too harsh even for him?

I know there is an option you may be able to do. You can make it free with an option to buy the full game. Choice Of The Dragon and Vampire house are like this. I don’t know, just a thought. I have played this numerous times and fell in love with it. When it becomes available I am most definitely buying it. Congratulations on the. Completion.

Hmm, in the roommate ending (assuming that Richard very much likes Lenore), he’d probably feel a little… odd watching Lenore flirt with other men. Not because he’s madly in love with her, but because it would act as harsh reminder of the simple human pleasures he can no longer enjoy, as well as a glimpse into the normal life that Lenore might have had if she’d never met him in the first place.

Maybe a little. :slight_smile: Richard does grow to care about Lenore, but never sees her as more than a cherished pet.

I think that’s what I’m probably leaning toward, given that I find banner ads and popups super annoying. I’ll definitely update this thread when I know for sure.

:heart: :heart: :heart: Thank you so much! :heart: :heart: :heart:

You said that Jude Law was your faceclaim for Richard. I don’t know if that’s still the case but here you go. @Elena_H

Jude Law’s still my faceclaim @vulkod, although it’s getting harder and harder for me to picture him as the character these days…
