Its been ten years since a little known PC Action-RPG called Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines was released.  Based on White Wolf’s Vampire: The Masquerade franchise, the game was created using Valve’s Source Engine and was released on the exact same day as Half-Life 2.

Despite the use of a (then) top of the line graphics engine and the World of Darkness license, the game saw lukewarm reviews by major PC critics and didn’t sell very well.  Sadly, like Anachronox before it, the development studio closed up shortly after completing the game and no sequel was ever made.  In fact, plans to revive the license with the launch of a very long in development MMO were terminated earlier this year.

So why does this mostly forgotten game mean so much to Maniac?  Let’s find out.

If you’re interested in learning more about the modern World of Darkness, I recommend checking out Iron Liz’s review.  She does reviews of Pen and Paper RPGs over on her site, The Foundry.
