Not to mention, a variety of other creatures, monsters and mysterious happenings; and mystery is the keyword here. Vera Blanc: Full Moon is coming soon from Tycoon games, and currently in development. Plus, it looks like the first episode of the serial-style game involves werewolves! Woot! And there’s a sexy chick detective solving paranormal and supernatural mysteries with her equally sexy sidekick. It’s like Nancy Drew for people old enough to ride the Ferris wheel! But seriously, it does look a lot better than just the usual standby mystery games, –people addicted to Tycoon-style games know exactly what I’m talking about.
For example, there are monsters; you’re not just wandering around, trying to locate hidden kittens, or serving diners dressed in only three different colors, or buying upgrades for things like your shoes, and your shopping cart. According to ‘Inside Mac Games’, there will definitely be more for the computer game addicts:
“Vera Blanc is a series of detective mystery games. In each episode, you investigate supernatural events, paranormal activity and occultism. You’ll encounter werewolves, vampires, zombies, ghosts, the undead and anything else you can imagine. The game reads like a comic book, but players will be able to change the story by controlling Vera’s decisions at crucial plot points. As the story progresses, players will be given several choices to direct the plot. These decisions can lead to new clues, dead ends, or worse! In a profession this dangerous, one false step can lead to a premature end! Vera keeps track of all the clues in her notepad, so you can review everything you’ve discovered any time you want. You’ll be allowed to explore several locations as you search for clues, but some places can only be unlocked through investigation. A series of challenging minigames will provide clues and helpful hints if you manage to solve them. Use Vera’s mind-reading skills to know the thoughts of anyone close enough to you, and hunt for clues with more minigames like spot the difference, repeat the sequence, memory, and much more!”
It’s a hidden object game with a lot more user-interaction, and it has a great selling point for different types of game lovers, and genre fans. As someone who loves horror movies, werewolves, and cheesy computer games, I’m sold. Keep a close eye on the official website for more information.
