Created for Ludum dare 29 in 72 hours.


Nosferatu awakes one night in his lonely castle, to discover that a prized possession is missing. Fruitlessly scouring his chamber, he realizes he must search the castle for his missing

The game is an exploration/puzzle game, in which you must solve puzzles in order to obtain keys which can be used to further explore the castle.

The game seeks to challenge our perception of a character, even one that is well established.

I totally agree with the other reviewers like demicrown and Bistander. I really enjoyed the ending too!

I agree with the other reviewers. Basically, a great start, but it needs polish. Also, the puzzles are a bit easy and without much logic. For instance, the use of the spatula is rather random.

I hope you continue to work on the game and put out an expanded version.

Nice voice & graphics, but the hot zones for text cues and object pickups were so clunky, I had to try everything 3 or 4 time to make sure I had, in fact, triggered the related event. Going back to look at things no longer triggered the description text, and descriptions lingered even when trying to interect with a new object, adding to the confused and unwieldy feel of the controls.

Thanks for the honest critique. The game was created for ludum dare and still has a few things we hope to fix. We'll address these issues as soon as possible!

Very good game!
You should make another with a bigger map.
