Vampire: The Masquerade – Heartless Lullaby Released

Developed in less than a month as part of a recent Vampire: The Masquerade Jam, Vampire: The Masquerade – Heartless Lullaby is essentially a playable prologue for an isometric narrative CRPG utilizing the 5th Edition of the Vampire: The Masquerade ruleset.

Featuring roughly an hour and a half of gameplay, this curious project is available for free on Steam. Here’s the official description:

Step into the night as Zak Riley and Diane, mortal and Kindred, as their fates intertwine in an ominous plot involving a weakened Camarilla, the vampiric sect that wants to remain hidden, and a rising Sabbat, the fanatical group that sees humanity as cattle.

Meet dozens of characters, venture deep into the shadows and see the world through the eyes of both mortal and vampire, as you explore the Heartless Club.

Take your chances with the dice, face the consequences of your actions, and embrace the duality of Humanity and the Beast in this story rich cRPG set in the World of Darkness.

Covering just the prologue of the story, with well over an hour and a half of gameplay and several different endings, Vampire: The Masquerade – Heartless Lullaby was created in less than a month in celebration of the Vampire: The Masquerade Jam.
