Both Paradox, who as of late personal Vampire: The Masquerade & World of Darkness writer White Wolf, are stepping into the Netflix & Chill recreation, or they’re they’re gearing as much as reveal a long-awaited follow-up to the legendary Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines.
They’ve give you Tender, ostensibly a relationship web site. Whose metadata simply so occurs to learn “Whether or not you’re searching for significant friendships, real love or just a late evening chunk with a kindred spirit, Tender is right here to assist.”
By the pricking of my thumbs…
I signed up nervously for Tender, readying my determined justifications ought to my accomplice stroll in and discover me creating a web based relationship profile whereas she exhaustedly hauled our e’er-vomiting child round the home. Happily, it wasn’t lengthy earlier than Tender turned much less about strangers honking one another’s pud, and extra about nihilism, hobbies together with demonology and standing updates about consuming cats.
So far as I can inform, there’s presently no solution to truly talk with or in any other case progress a relationship with one other attractive/bloodthirsty soul, exterior of having the ability to select canned traces approving of their statuses, however that this can be a) clearly an alternate actuality recreation and b) is tagged beta and talks about new options coming quickly, Devil solely is aware of what it’s acquired in retailer for us.
Right here’s my auto-generated profile description, after I picked pursuits together with board video games and murderers:
Positively, undoubtedly about boning, and nothing to do with videogames about more and more corrupted immortal souls, I’m certain you’ll agree.
I’ve carried out a bit of burrowing into Tender’s supply code, and turned up just a few extra nuggets of be aware. First, right here’s a video which performs when you’ve accomplished the preliminary spherical of profile-setting duties and some brief quizzes about e.g. Robert Plutchik’s emotional wheel.
You try to persuade me that, for one factor, it isn’t deeply sinister, and for one more that the closing music doesn’t positively scream vampires.
My digging additionally turned up point out of somebody named ‘Alice & Smith’ as being chargeable for a few of these movies. Who, whaddaya know, grow to be a Canadian developer which specialises in ARGs, together with the John Walker-approved The Black Watchmen.
All this implies extra Vampire: The Masquerade, or I’ll eat my historical boxed copy of Bloodlines (if I might be bothered to dig it up from the attic). However what kind will it take, who’s making it and after we will discover out extra? Additionally, when will I get a booty name from an nameless cat-eater?
