Vampire Escape

This is my first game done in under 7 days. 5 to be precise. I think it turned out ok. It was more of an experiment because I tested loads of stuff that I had been going through in my mind, for a while. I started the game thinking it’ll be fun to make a game in under 7 days, and it sure was. First, I thought the graphics were kinda crappy, but then I realized the point was to test a new form of gameplay, not to make uber-graphics. Honestly, it’s kind of a feat for me, cause I didn’t think I would be able to make a game in 7 days. Life is unexpected:)

Also, the game is open to critique. You can post your comments by clicking the “ Leave A Comment »” link here or just under the credits. Your opinion would be appreciated.:)

Download (5.4 mb) (release 4)


Vampires fear light. Actually, they return to their coffin when the morning comes. Not this vampire. He usually forgets to do that. Help him get to his coffin, but beware of the lights shining through the holes in the roof.

Control the vampire by clicking him, then drag and then release.

[SPACE] restarts the level.


If you have problems getting the game to run I’d suggest installing the newest DirectX 9.0c drivers and making sure you have Visual C 2005 SP1 redistributable package installed.
