Vera Blanc and the Island Phantom

Share Collapse

Author Comments

THIS IS A VISUAL NOVEL. It is in HTML format and does NOT require a flash player.

Take on the role of Vera Blanc, a beautiful young woman who, after brain surgery, gained the extraordinary ability to read other people's minds!
Daughter of Emmanuel Blanc, one of the richest people on Earth, Vera left her life of luxury to use her powers to work alongside paranormal detective Brandon Mackey. Be immersed in the world of the supernatural as you play the detective!
Follow Vera and Brandon to a Caribbean island to investigate a phantom guarding a fortune in gold.
Will you be able to solve the mystery?
The game ending you get depends on choices you make. Game play includes a challenging mind reading mini-game.

This visual novel is an original story based on the "Vera Blanc" characters, created by Winter Wolves Games (permission has been granted to use the characters). Familiarity with the Vera Blanc characters is not required. Characters are introduced at the beginning of the game (the player has the option to skip the introduction).
This is the first of my series of fan made Vera Blanc visual novels.

Where's the action? You click to advance gargantuan blabla screen. It's a RPG game.

Changed description and added statement at the top of author comments that this is a visual novel.

To start off with the good: this has promise. The combo of mystery and suspense and intrigue has a lot going for it. There are plenty of games that are just sex scenes, but this has more to offer. Now on to the criticism...

If you could expand your options in exploring the island, make it more of a mystery with clues to collect, it would be more compelling (maybe a journal to save the clue details) and the player can choose to advance if they think they have the correct answers. Also, Vera is completely uninterested in Brandon while on the island, but with one date she's falling in love? It just seems a little trite. We need more foreshadowing and some romance before their date if they're going to have sex on the first date. As for the sex itself, the audio of Vera panting is annoying when it doesn't match up with their movements and the earthquake simulation that's supposed to be Brandon cumming is laughable, but not in a good way.

Thank you for playing and commenting.
I appreciate your feedback and rating.
Regarding the 'first date', the time-line for this visual novel is after the first two commercially released Vera Blanc games. In the second of those games, Vera has a date with Brandon, and her feelings toward him emerge.
