For centuries they have terrorized humankind but now they need your help!
Vampires! is an offbeat action puzzle game, filled with vampires, traps, crazy Transylvanian music and fun.

It’s almost dawn and vampires are returning into their coffins for a well-deserved sleep after a long night. Time is ticking until the dawn and they’ve discovered that a bunch of vampire slayers got there first and set up traps! Now it’s up to you to use your supernatural powers of tile rotation, garlic-based repellent and spider net slow-down, to help them overcome all obstacles and reach their regular daily rest.

Gameplay:
Your main objective is to save vampires by leading them safely through the labyrinth and into their crypts. To do so, you can rotate the labyrinth parts to create new paths or use garlic-based repellent and spider-net slowdown to prevent vampires from walking into peril. Many traps are indeed lurking for the poor vampires. Starting with simple ones like pure light, things get more complicated down the road. Mobile wooden stakes, silver gun bullets, hired assassins or crazy garlic sappers wait impatiently to vaporize your vampires once for all.

DRM free version available at our own store:
We offer DRM free version as a digital download at http://store.cbe-software.com/ for $4.99

What the press has to say:

"Vampires! stands out with its brain-teasing difficulty which creates the one-more-level-feeling of yesteryear. With a cute presentation it might look like a casual game, but it’s a devious puzzler for the hardcore who like to use both their brain halves and have quick reflexes."
-- Future Sack review - 8/10

"I can't help but feel that CBE Software, the creators responsible for the absolutely unique J.U.L.I.A. adventure game, are shaping up to become one of the most intriguing indie developers around...

The game is a wonderfully offbeat puzzler that has you saving vampires by rotating scenery bits and safely guiding them through very nasty labyrinths to the safety of their crypts..."

I would love to get an early build to make a video review for it if possible.

Gah, if you keep appreciating my advice, I'm going to keep giving it. Though I will have to start charging eventually. : p

Thank you! Those are some good advices. We plan to do something with the game after the J.U.L.I.A., because it took us quite some time and it would be pitty to just throw it away. At least people love the soundtrack. :P :)

I swear, I get more fun talking about the marketing and design for games than actually playing them any more. Hope I haven't annoyed you too much. I'll give you the short and sweet advice on this title, and get out of your hair.

Lemmings and Dungeon Keeper references can be awesome for piquing the interest of classic gamers and journalists. Use the differentiated title for the game. The difficulty curve needs a good smoothing like a few of the reviews said, with dips as new mechanics or higher complexity are introduced. Casual gamers like to get medals just as much as the classic gamers do. You have more story in the trailer than in the game, so far. An update is a good way to demonstrate you're still working to improve a game, even as you've movded on to other projects. If the mainstream games press isn't biting, it's time to look at other folks with lots of eyeballs on them, like Let's Players.
