Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is an adventure game set in the World of Darkness urban fantasy universe, known for its many different "paper" RPG systems, such as Vampire: The Masquerade or Werewolf: The Apocalypse. The production allows players to take on the role of a vampire that becomes part of a conflict between two powerful factions. Polish studio Draw Distance (formerly known as iFun4all and responsible for Serial Cleaner) is responsible for creating this title.
In Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York, the player takes on the role of a newly created vampire who does not yet understand the rules of his existence. The protagonist quickly becomes part of the brutal conflict between the traditional Camarilla and independent Anarchists. With time, our hero gathers around himself a coterie (a team of comrades with convergent goals). It is worth noting that the plot of the discussed production is part of the canon of the fifth edition of the Vampire: The Masquerade RPG system.
The game at Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is mainly about reading descriptions and dialogues, observing illustrations and making choices that affect the course of a story. The main goal of the game is to get to know the plot prepared by the creators, but we also have access to the selection of side tasks (also related to companions).
It is worth noting that the player can take part in one of three different characters, belonging to classic clans known from Vampire: Masquerade. The choice decides which vampiric powers (so-called disciplines) we will gain access to during the game. The clan also has an impact on our relations with other members of the coterie and the availability of individual side tasks.
In Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York we can only play alone. The gameplay is based on a feature campaign.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York has a decent graphic design, which consists mainly of two-dimensional illustrations. The production is distinguished by its dark artistic style, which fits well with the characteristic climate of the World of Darkness universe. The illustrations resemble the graphics from the textbooks for the Vampire: The Masquerade system.
