Interesting game, seems very well made in gameplay, and standard in graphics. But animations can be tuned abit.

Bought it in the Indie Royale Pheonix Bundle so I thought I would help it get Greenlit by voting!

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
JanKavan  [author] Nov 7, 2013 @ 2:21am 
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.

Then try googling just Guide Them To Safety.
desolation0 Nov 4, 2013 @ 4:20pm 
Look up J.U.L.I.A. on the internet. Then look up Vampires.
JanKavan  [author] Nov 4, 2013 @ 4:18pm 
Yes. That's the problem. None of the metacritic-embraced sites picked that up. And it's already one year since we've released this game... With J.U.L.I.A. Enhanced Edition I had to do 1/1000 of the work and not only it's covered but we're already greenlit even if the game will come out next year. There's something I am clearly missing! But anyway I will always be better at making games than to understand how these things work.
desolation0 Nov 4, 2013 @ 4:15pm 
And none showing up on Metacritic yet.
JanKavan  [author] Nov 4, 2013 @ 4:13pm 
I've sent around 130 personalized emails with review codes (for all platforms). So far we have 7 (positive) reviews.
desolation0 Nov 4, 2013 @ 4:12pm 
How many writers have gotten review codes so far?
JanKavan  [author] Nov 4, 2013 @ 4:10pm 
Yes. We have blog, web, fb and twitter active. And re. casual, the game offers for both casual (easy mode completion) and hardcore gamers (gold medals and achievements) alike. We were just three persons doing this game so very easy to spot the culprit (me) :D
desolation0 Nov 4, 2013 @ 4:07pm 
Do you have a blog for your studio, or a particularly active Twitter feed?
desolation0 Nov 4, 2013 @ 4:06pm 
I'll put that another way. Whose bright idea is it to make a stylish vampire lemming dungeon keeper in reverse, and try to call it casual?
JanKavan  [author] Nov 4, 2013 @ 4:05pm 
We are almost neglected by the press. Even after many presenattions ovwer at GamesCom Europe only a handful of press covered us (all of them giving us exceptionally high mark). We are part of 100% indie under Chillingo (our last hope), we are on Desura and we did some trailers, many press releases etc. The game is also available through Phoenix Online Store and we've been approved by Famigo as family friendly game with a nice recommendation. Well... :)
desolation0 Nov 4, 2013 @ 3:56pm 
What other marketing have you done so far?
JanKavan  [author] Nov 4, 2013 @ 3:52pm 
LOL. We are just struggling with Vampires. While the vast majority who actually played the game loved it, I don't really know why we can't break through. Maybe it's just hard to explain that it's not just another puzzle game out there. :)
desolation0 Nov 3, 2013 @ 5:19pm 
I now have a bit of a man crush on you for taking the random advice of a stranger so well. :P
JanKavan  [author] Nov 3, 2013 @ 4:37pm 
That's actually a nice comment, thank you. I will probably adjust the name.
desolation0 Nov 3, 2013 @ 2:49pm 
Kind of shooting yourself in the foot a bit with the different names on the different platforms. "Vampires: Guide Them to Safety!" the Desura title is more descriptive and helps differentiate from the variety of other zombie/vampire/chupacabras games out there. Quite enjoyed the bit I played of it, so far.

have a nice Gameplay. Rdy to Buy
.:MSK:. SlanPik² Oct 8, 2013 @ 7:33am 
pretty cool game
Distasteful Sep 3, 2013 @ 5:23am 
While its much more of a kids game than anything else, it has potential. Offering a DRM free version of the game is nice, but that's really not that uncommon for a indie developer to do. Perhaps open your source code up to let people get a look at the game. Good job on the demo though.
