A vampire with a peach in her hand, and a drop of blood on her finger.

It might seem like an odd time of the year for a horror sale, given Halloween is nine months away. But GOG’s Horror Game Sale is in full swing and there are some real gems on offer.

That includes Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York and Shadows of New York, a pair of gorgeously illustrated vampire visual novels, set in the same tabletop RPG universe as Bloodlines 2.

Like the original Bloodlines (but unlike its much-delayed sequel), Coteries and Shadows cast you as a newly-turned vampire plunged into the backstabbing world of the fanged undead. You can dive in even if you’ve never played a single Masquerade game in your life, but you’ll get even more out of it if you’re familiar with the world.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
