World of Darkness pen-and-paper RPG universe has spawned two new video games: Vampire: The Masquerade – We Eat Blood And All Our Friends Are Dead and Mage: The Ascension: Refuge. They both take the form of interactive horror stories written by skilled fantasy writers. You can get a package of the two text games sold on Steam together for $9.99 under the common title: World of Darkness Preludes: Vampire and Mage. Here’s a word about these stories:
Told entirely from a mobile messaging perspective, We Eat Blood is a sharp, mature and often terrifying story about your first nights as unwilling predator and prey. Hunted by unknown enemies and driven by an alien hunger, will you sever your ties with the mortal world or try to cling to your former life? Will you join ancient conspiracies, or turn the tables on forces older than the written word? Terrible power lies within your grasp, but there is always a price to pay.
Set in modern-day Sweden, Mage: The Ascension: Refuge by critically-acclaimed author Karin Tidbeck, lets you experience today's social and political upheavals while awakening to the power of True Magick – the ability to shape reality itself through your force of belief. Many will try to recruit you into a secret war where human consensus itself is the battlefield. Your actions and choices will have profound consequences on the world and people around you... assuming madness and paradox don’t claim you first.
