I have no experience with Vampire The Masquerade, but I enjoyed this nonetheless! I'm a huge fan of the pixelated look, and the multiple endings were a touch I always enjoy! This was a lovely experience!

(+2)

Loved this little game, and the inquisition was hilarious. Gave me my vampire dose, since bloodlines 2 is probably never happening.

Lacuna coil are still playing too, for those who want another puff of nostalgia.

THE PLOT THICKENS

(+1)

why is this marcked as gay

(+3)

Because the main plot involves a gay relationship in between two characters, better explored depending on which ending you end up with!

(-1)

I like this game I love the art style and story behind all parts of this game I had a lot of fun but I had to mute the end cuz of a song but its still a really great game 

idk what to do after I go in the bar cause it won't let me out. Anyone know what tot do?

(+1)

Great stuff! The daddy joke made me spit cider out my nose though and now everything smells of fizzy apples. I just want to see the rest of LA from Bloodlines done in this style now! Though it will all smell of fizzy apples...

what a beautiful game. gorgeous art, ambience, and music. it was so interesting seeing this world in pixelated sidescrolling style after seeing in 3D. great job.

(+1)

I am a big fan of the masquerade bloodlines. You made a great game! bloodlines 2 is already available for pre-order :)

I think I got the secret ending

(+1)

OMG I was so excited to find this game and so far it doesn't disappoint!! It seems super cool!! I loved Vampire the Masquerade and remember looking for other games like it cuz I was in withdrawal after I finished it lol.. Looks like I finally found one!! Thank you for this. :) :)

Beautiful and well thought out game! 5/5 stars. The maker of this game needs to create a series of this vampire game!

(+2)

I love this game. The art style, the story, the fact that this was made on unity and in a game jam?! I would love to see an extension of the game.

Def love the art in this game!! Maybe I'll check out the game it's based off of now :) Thanks for sharing!

Cool stuff, great graphics and atmosphere! Love the different endings (found 2(4?)), and the emo-ness of the sire :)
Good font choice too, always brings me back to the olden days. ;)

AMAZING ambiance, i wonder if you planned the architecture and structure of the city with an overview and then built all of the winding perspectives off of it? very well done and realistic city :)

a very wonderful game, it could have been a bit longer, but given the fact the game was made in 7 days, it is awesome. moody atmosphere, great story and a sad sending..loved all of it.

Thank you for this. :)

Great atmosphere. 

woahh that was so good!! I've never played the game its based off of though

Thanks for the great chapter in the World of Darkness!

Vampire The Masquerade was one of my favorite games and this is a nice little walk down memory lane! The old point and click adventure style is a nice touch! Very cool! 


I love playing this game! The pixel-style gameplay is cool and the story  is heartwarming. I have seen all of the endings and my favorite is the Thin-Blood ending. I noticed that when you say different things, then the dialogue in the finale is different. However, I didn’t change a thing in the questioning from the vampire hunters since I know they don’t believe a thing and they were going to kill me, regardless of what I say. Overall, this game is great and I highly suggest playing it. 10 /10

BLOOD THICKENS | Santa Monica By Night Full Gameplay Walkthrough

Right from the start "Santa Monica By Night" screamed Vampire the Masquerade to me. One of my most memorble games I've ever played and you made your own pixelated story in the same universe!  Just awesome of you to do that. 

The style, the characters and the music brings out what made Vampire the Masquerade good. Dark and moody city, memorable enviroments.  uniqe and crazy characters with dark humor. To top all of that, music that sets the mood for the whole game. 

Loved it and BIG PLUS for multiple endings. Good game that fits in the web browser. 

PS: Played it on a Chromebook and had no problem out of the box. No settings changes from my side. 

Absolutely loved this game! It was a great story start to finish! I got to play 2 of the endings and they were bittersweet but so good. Made a video, I hope you enjoy! 

i can't even begin to describe how much i loved this game right from the start. the 8bit recreation was so on point, i am quite impressed! 

My definite favourite for the Vampire Jam :)
