Bloodlust announced

William Fisher of WRF Studios writes in to announce Bloodlust, a vampire-themed action RPG he’s working on in the Unreal engine. The premise:

Varic and Vista, two silent, dark, and solitary “ShadowHunters” find themselves resurrected into a lost city terrorized by the all-powerful “Emperor” Ranior, a monstrous vampire lord. Haunted by visions of darkness and tormented by their ghosts from the past, Varic and Vista struggle daily, though they always continue to move forward. With each victory they grow stronger, increasing bloodline and skills in the “Dark Arts”, but all at the cost of their humanity. With each new bloodline, they find themselves turning more into the vampiric monsters they were resurrected to destroy. In the end, their great power will be challenged only by themselves, as they will have to face the source of their own immortality and decide whether to embrace the darkness or destroy it.

What would you choose?

The developer writes: “Quests and storyline are dynamic. The decisions you make affect other quests, characters, and storyline. Join Rival Clans to Learn their Skills or Destroy them.”

There is a trailer out showing what this game actually looks like, which you can watch here:

Perhaps more importantly, the developer has made a free demo available. Find it on this page (which helpfully explains game controls and provides troubleshooting for demo installation). Bloodlust is Windows-only. The developer tells me that he intends to price it at $10; there is no release date announced yet, however.
