Holy crap! If that's actual gameplay it's basically Devil May Cry with Van Hellsing!

The graphics, I must agree, look really, really good for an iPhone. This almost looks kind of like a Hero of Sparta with a whole new theme.

No clue about anything else, I'm sure Chillingo will post here sooner or later about the details.

I'm usually the first to critisize someone for choosing a game based on it's visuals................... however, now and again I slip into hypocracy (sp?) so I'm sold. I'm hoping it has proper levels and that those images aren't just small 'arenas' you fight in.

Either way, bring it on! :)

Well, Chillingo is only a publisher. The developer is more like someone who I respect. Secret Exit for instance, is a wonderful developer and Chillingo is just deciding to publish it. I must agree with you though, Chillingo has been dishing out more quality games since their Bike or Die 2 game that fails in almost every way.

Looks like the last 3 people (who are MOST LIKELY just one person) need to be banned. Saying a game "is awesome and addictive" even though it hasn't been released is obviously fraudulent. How dumb.

I don't know. It doesn't say anything. Well anyways, I found some more screenshots. They're on the front page :)

And it's weird how they don't mention the dev... maybe Chillingo finally decided to develop their own game? :confused:

If this is supposed to be a full fledged story action the traditional model of "release now update later" can't work, as the full story of part one has to be told. Patches yes, but not updates to levels, etc. They have to get as much right the first time.

Totally agree. They can't use the same sale method they used with iDracula. This gimmick didn't even work with iDracula as you can see it dropped surprisingly fast from the Top 100 Chart. Even with the 0.99 price tag, it hovers at around #80.

Well, I'd say it was the pricing strategy and the backlash from people expecting a full game and got an arena shooter with an update that took long in coming (what did they expect for 99 cents?)

Ah well, looks like Vampire Origin gets the top row front springboard page, next to iDracula, Zenonia, Real Racing and Fieldrunners. Hope there's different combos you can do.

Actually, in the original book, Van Helsing is an old man. That (horrible, horrible, horrible) movie made him look like a super hero.

I snapped this picture with my iPhone just now from an edition of the book I have. This is Edward Gorey's depiction of Van Helsing:

I have to say the screen shots look really good, but I'm really on the fence believing that is on an iphone. Don't get me wrong I'm a huge supporter of iphone and believe the gaming device is and can achieve great things in terms of graphics and fun games. Those screens just look to good and we haven't seen anything come close to those kinds of detailed lighting effects. Look at Assassins Creed that is due next week those screens look great, but nothing as crisp as these screens we've been shown. I need to see some video of the game in action on the iphone/touch to be made a believer. Just my thoughts on what appears to be a game like devil may cry from the screens, but I'll take a wait and see approach before I get to excited.

Yes!! Edward Gorey is the man! I have never seen or even heard of this book. What is the title? I currently own "The Gashlycrumb Tinies" which made me a big Gorey fan. Any ways sorry for the off subject, the game looks spectacular, I hope it plays the same way.

Dracula:p

It's still Bram Stoker's book, but it has illustrations by Gorey. It's actually published by Barnes and Noble. I'm pretty sure they still carry it.

The illustrations were for something else, though. They were his drawings for a play did based on the book. I don't know much else about it.

as a developer in 3d, i see 3 things that makes this very unlikely:
1 - normal mapping (those bumb maps and textures on the ground tiles, rock and stuff)
2 - specular mapping (tiles again, light doesnt reflect on black, pillars, stone etc)
3 - awful lot of geometry.

shaders and high poly models isnt something iphone 2g can handle from our experience, and i don't think that even 2gen ipod touch would handle that kind of graphics well... this is pushing it.

For now all i can say is that chillingo is either trying to fire up some debate and anticipation for the release with high quality renderings, or they're aiming at iphone and ipod 3rd gen, disregarding the 1 and 2.

by the way, these 3D scene and the light performance make me think of elder scrolls 4

Judging from the possible action in the screenshots, how about this for a control scheme:

You get an iDracula style control wheel/ Hero of Sparta joystick on the left side for movement. On the right side you have one Action button. Tapping the button makes you slash, while swiping out from the button does a special attack, like an dashing stab or overhead strike. Holding down the button makes you block.

So you can run up to an enemy, hold down the button to block his flurry, then tap tap tap swipe to do a Devil May Cry style combo.

Later when you level up, you can choose 3 of all the different special attacks you've acquired, and assign them to swiping up, across and diagonally from the action button. So

Tap, tap, tap, swipe UP = slash 3 times, do an overhead smash
Tap, tap, tap, tap, swipe diag = slash x4, knockaway slash
Tap, tap, tap, swipe across = slash x3, rushing stab

Etc
The screenshots where he fights the red dude might be a subboss/ boss fight. Same thing applies except the camera is closer. Same controls to move and fight. Dodges and parries would be one of those specials you can assign to the swipes.

As for the screenshot where he has a gun, that means he shoots, right? Well the action button autoshoots whatever you're facing until you get within sword range.

It is odd that the developer of such a potentially Appstore blockbuster remains unnamed while Chillingo gets the news spotlight. Each website including Toucharcade got different pictures independently from one another, yet none asked Chillingo who the developer is?

Although I don't know if it is Bethesda, art doesn't look like their style.

Yeah, I'm really curious on who the developer is. Is Chillingo deciding on developing games, or is this just another game that they're publishing? Weird how no they're not saying ANYTHING about who's developing and whatnot. Shouldn't they atleast give credit to the developer?

shigzeo
04-21-2009, 01:50 AM
Or...

...the backgrounds could be pre-rendered.

Has anyone actually thought of that?

People are comparing this to DMC...but when I look at the screens I think more along the lines of, say, Onimusha (the first one) and the older Resident Evil games. Real time polygon characters over pre-rendered backgrounds.

Pre-rendered backgrounds could account for the detailed textures and geometry that some feel outside of the realm of possibility on iTouch/Phone.

Because, y'know...

...this wasn't possible on SNES without pre-rendering:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/30/Donkey_Kong_Country_Shot_2.png

Nor were the backgrounds in the pre RE4 Resident Evil games.
.

trust me, people have definitely thought that these could be pre-rendered backdrops. however, we don't know anything as of yet. whether yay or nay, there is some impressive work going on behind the scenes. the PowerVR inside of the iDevice is quite powerful and from a purely rendering standpoint should be about on par with the Dream Cast except that it renders at much lower resolutions and is fine with 16 bit colour as opposed to 32 bit.

PowerVR can also take great advantage of tile-based rendering to display only visible graphics rather than the entire scene. if chillingo secured a very talented team of programmers, then i don't see why with a bit of magic, it would not be possible.

04-21-2009, 04:07 AM
Maybe we should ask some Toucharcade site member like Arn to follow up on the dev's identity. If they remain silent, we'll know they were probably asked not to reveal it at GDC, making it the strangest NDA ever, especially for a mobile game. I have a feeling this game isn't going to be quite what everyone is expecting.

What do you think it is, perhaps it's not a fast paced action adventure game at all? But the pictures released seem to indicate exploring an area with fighting, more emphasis on swordplay that shooting.

If they are prerendered, I wouldn't expect so much aliasing on the screenshots. IMO prerendered seems unlikely, but it's very possible that the screenshots have been doctored somewhat to make them more appealing - see also what Sony did with Killzone 2...

If they really can achieve this kind of graphics in a free-form 3D game, they must have found some unused GPU and CPU in the iphone somewhere... ;) It really does seem too good to be possible, but I guess we'll see.

edit:

for the people who can't click on the link the qoute:

Just spotted this thread -- we can confirm that this game trilogy is not connected to iDracula.

Vampire Origins is a definitive vampire slayer game – a horror trilogy – 3 unique tense point-and-click adventure games comprising beautiful pre-rendered environments and characters. The first game entitled ‘Vampire Origins’ to be followed up by ‘Curse of the Vampire’ and ‘Return of the Nosferatu’ (working titles).

"3 unique tense point-and-click adventure games comprising beautiful pre-rendered environments and characters."

I have to say that these screens look nothing like a point-and-click adventure, but rather like action adventure. There is no combat in P&C adventures. Hopefully, these fights aren't cutscenes.

The plot thickens, this game may well not be what we all think it is...

I'm not sure the use of the word dick is appropriate as it would be difficult to prove in any way that named appendice has been used. I understand it may be difficult to always find the best word to describe one's emotions and feelings about a specific post or its author, but the use of genitalia is neither appropriate nor effective. Not getting too emotional, or dealing with ones emotions elsewhere than on the forum, benefits the individual as much as these forums.

No iPhone game can look like that. Unless it's just a rendered screenshot. Chillingo did say it was point and click but the screenshots definately don't look like it.

I can say that the graphics on the screenshots won't be on the iPod. Those graphics are superior to Oblivion lol.

I heard that this game was coming out towards the end of May if not early June. From what I read somewhere, few weeks or so was the time frame. I guess we'll see when this game comes out because so many people are skeptical right now.

The screenshots don't look like what you'd get in a pre-rendered game, however they look like they have bump-mapping which the iPhone/iPod Touch is definitely not capable of.

Fosters11
05-08-2009, 03:45 PM
Yeah some of the camera angles (such as the birds eye view thing) look like they are pre-scripted so maybe it's more of a devil may cry style affair? This would allow for pre-rendered backdrops.

monteboyd
05-08-2009, 05:59 PM
Actually...they do look like what you'd get in a pre-rendered game. Bump mapping, etc. can't be done in real time on iTouch/Phone, as you stated, but by pre-rendering the backgrounds they can have that sort of stuff as the iTouch/Phone wouldn't be rendering anything in real time.

The strange thing is, there is bump-mapping but no anti-aliasing. If it is pre-rendered why aren't the backdrops anti-aliased as well? I was referring to bump-mapping not being possible in real time, obviously any effect is possible with pre-rendered backdrops.

arta
05-08-2009, 07:37 PM
Know what, even if the game does look this good it won't matter if it animates slowly and clumsily like Cops and Robbers, or has a terrible framerate like Terminator Salvation.

On the other hand if they get this right then they're set for 3 games.

Jeez we need video.

Isilel
05-09-2009, 06:05 AM
Actually, there have been P&C adventure games with short combat and/or action sequences.

OK, I stand corrected, but most of the screenshots so far feature combat. Wouldn't it be quite misleading to show primarily such pictures if it is only a short part of the whole game? My guess and hope is that it is a an action adventure with strong puzzle element and that the Chillingo rep misspoke. Or that he wanted to stress that puzzle element is extensive, unlike most modern action adventures.

Kartel
05-19-2009, 07:34 PM
Honestly I think the puzzle elements will be as prevalent as in Devil May Cry, which is to say not at all, merely used for pacing.

I think the controls will be either good or bad depending on how they pace the action and mix it up with story, exploration and puzzles. Too much action (or tap shooting) at 1 time would be very repetitive and quite boring.

Also, the backgrounds are obviously pre-rendered, so how would you control the shooting? Resident Evil (if I remember correctly) has a lock-on or auto-aim system which ain't that much better than this.

Yeah I'm a little apprehensive when it comes to tap to shoot games. It really does look immpressive however I've learned (cough MGST cough) that immpressive "looking" graphics can be rendered using relatively simple techniques and so until I actually play it, I really can't be sure on what I think.

Time Crisis and MGST were the two of the more disappointing games which is where my apprehension comes from. Of course, after the Mass Effect Galaxy debacle, I'm no longer surprised.

nizy
06-23-2009, 06:38 PM
@ spiffyone
Thats my view exactly. I'm hoping for something like the original Resident Evil games: suspenseful, short bursts of action, scripted "scary" moments, good sound design, atmospheric + dramatic camera angles, engaging environmental puzzles, a decent story, weapons, health and ammo conservation, epic boss battles etc. not a simple tap shooter ala MGST!

p.s. read the post by Grumps - oh the irony! :D

arta
06-23-2009, 07:03 PM
Game looks fantastic, even better than I thought it would be.

Chillingo, if you're reading this, please ask the devs to add an alternate control scheme: either iDracula/ Minigore style style twin sticks or Assassin's Creed style joystick and buttons.

Tapping the enemy to shoot is gonna get boring FAST. This is basically a fancy iZombie, and that game TANKED (and sucked).

Squirt Reynolds
06-23-2009, 11:32 PM
The graphics and (especially) the blood look great, but the tap-to-shoot control scheme does not.

Even if there's a nice adventure feel to the game, i'm assuming the main part of gameplay will be killing vampires, and tapping them to shoot them will get old fast. Even on the demo video you can see that, at times, the "virtual finger" gets in the way of the overall view of the game.

Hopefully this game has some kind of alternate control scheme, because a good looking game with crappy controls doesn't cut it.

Isilel
06-24-2009, 07:59 AM
Well, I like "tap to shoot, tap to move" - coming from PC this just feels like a natural way of doing things, while D-Pads do not.
OTOH, combat looks a bit excessive and repetitive in this video. Fewer, but more interesting enemies would have been preferrable - and easier on the frame-rate.

Ditto a serious adventure element. Turning a lever doesn't feel all that exciting.

The graphics are quite pretty.

Well, I am still cautiously optimistic.

http://www.slidetoplay.com/story/vampire-origins-preview

Vampires have been around for ages. Through countless appearances in movies, games, and books, they have become one of the most famous villains of all time. But we still don’t know how they were discovered in the first place, and that’s where Vampire Origins comes in. After interviewing a correspondent from developer Ice Hill (who may or may not be an actual vampire) we received a detailed description of this upcoming game.

The gameplay in Vampire Origins is based around what our correspondent, who we'll call Lestat, called “intuitive point and click controls that give a player a unique opportunity to interact with a game.” The idea is that you tap where you want the character to shoot, and he does it. Ice Hill also told us that there will be an alternative control method incorporated into the game that enhances the gameplay further, although we don’t know exactly what that is at this point.

http://img.slidetoplay.com/20090723/VampireOrigins05.jpg

Aside from battling hordes of zombies in an overhead view, the game will also include close-up sword fights, putting you face to face with your opponent. Most of these battles will be against the main enemies of the game. “These highly detailed combat sequences will be like mini-games,” Lestat from Ice Hill told us. They will also control differently, having the player slide their finger around the screen to attack and defend.

http://img.slidetoplay.com/20090723/Vampireoriginsfight3.jpg

However, Vampire Origins is not all about the action; there is apparently a strong storyline to complement it as well. As the title suggests, it will be about the first confrontations between humans and vampires. “There are few games in AppStore that possess an immersive atmosphere and give players something more challenging than just kill-them-all gameplay”, Lestat told us. “A strong storyline leads the player through the game. We created a game where you don't just play the game to look at modern graphics with stunning visual effects, but you also sympathize with the main hero and try to steer his destiny.”

http://img.slidetoplay.com/20090723/VampireOrigins03.jpg

One point Ice Hill made was that the game won’t launch with any 3.0 features. They said it could be a possibility for future updates, but at this time the engine is almost complete, meaning it is too late to include 3.0 features at launch.

They also stated that the game will launch with the full storyline, so future content updates will likely consist of new features and improvements that extend the depth of the gameplay, not the plot. Vampire Origins still has no set price, but Ice Hill is aiming for a worldwide release this fall.

This game looks stunning.
Great graphics & art direction - very gothic.
I think it will be among the best in the AppStore, but I still think that the "tap-to-shoot" mechanic is overly simplistic. I don't see how the game will have much of a difficulty level. I hope I am proven wrong.

Keep up the great work, Chillingo.

It will be interesting to see what the alternate control method they mention is. It sounds like it might be designed fir people who want more of a challenge/level of immersion. If it's good but more challenging, I'd probably use it. The accelerometer controls in Doom Resurection were amazingly good, so maybe it's something like that.

What's more intuitive than touching to move and tapping enemies to shoot?


yes i agree.D-pad is not suited for iphone.look at games like samurai,real racing and spider.......alternative controls are what makes these games great.Even gameloft's modern combat game's control option 2 was great (even though it wasn't perfect).That worked better than any other psp FPS game i ever played.I have now come to believe that alternative controls if implemented properly would work better than d-pads on psps.Sure it will never be as good as wii controls or keyboard/mouse but it has the potential to be better than all other controls out there.the only thing is the devs have to implement it right.Some already have and more will in the coming days/months:D

It was announced, then it just dropped off the face of the planet for a while. It then resurfaced close to release, and turned out to be an AMAZING experience (I love that game). Hopefully it's the same story with Vampire Origins, but with the amount of time it's been since any news has arisn, I really don't know.

It was 3d to begin with... But I do hope that they just kind of started over as their olld screenshots which where AMAZING back in the day of OS 2.0 being new... I think the game was announced in September of last year... Holy crap.

Yes you are correct.I guess what i meant was a true 3D world vs set angles/point and click type action, and more of a Ravensword 3D world and controls kinda experience. :confused: :eek: :D

Yeah, I'd love to see this as a first/third person shooter vs. a click on zombies to kill them game. It looked like it would have been fun, but it got completely ditched along with games like BioShock and Re-Volt. RIP 2008-2009.

Graphics don't look as sharp and detailed as before, it's muddy and just not as beautiful, but definitely more believable than the first screenshots, which looked too good to be true (proly just concept art).

I do hope the game upscales on 3GS though.

I have a 3gs also and my wife has a 3g but I don't notice any difference in grafix between the two, are there many games that do upscale and could you name a few of them for me.

Don, I just went back to the first page to compare screenshots, and I don't see a difference. You can't go by the video because it's not HD. In any event, the backgrounds in the game are pre-rendered, so I see no reason why they would have downgraded them (it wouldn't improve performance). What I did notice was that the character animation is much more fluid -- or at least it seems so to me.

Yes there are, I only remember Need For Speed Shift at the moment (it has better graphics and visual effects on 3GS) and 2XL Supercross (actually it's different between iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2nd gen, so if you have anything more powerful than iPod Touch 2nd gen - such as 3GS - you'd see the difference).

If I'm not wrong there are a few other games too.

@squarezero:

If you see the 3rd screenshot, you'd see there are more details in lighting, character's model and other objects. Look at the fog and highlight on his leather jacket, the details on his hat, etc. And in the 2nd screenshot you can see how that thing on the left, the moon and his sword are very smooth and detailed. The last screenshot seems like the only one 'untouched'. The sword on his back is nowhere as smooth.

Finally, those are not the original screenshots ;)

I see your point. I always assumed that those early screenshots were taken directly from the Mac emulator and not from an iPhone screen. A better way to compare the development is to check out the two videos, though that's also compromised by the fact that the new video has been upscaled.

It will be interesting to see whether they're including any specific 3Gs visual features, such as dynamic lighting. I guess I would be pleasantly surprised; in my view, however, this looks great as is.
