Vampire MMO Shadow’s Kiss makes good on mature content

    
25

If you were super sad when Revival and World of Darkness closed up shop, you should probably point your eyeballs over at Shadow’s Kiss. The Kickstarted MMORPG is in alpha and boasts the same vampire themes as WOD and the same “mature” themes as Revival. Check this out – they’re about to use “exsanguinating” in the press release. That’s a 23-point Scrabble word, people.

“The Shadow’s Kiss Vampire MMO has just patched its first round of mature content, featuring two quests allowing the player to seduce mortal ‘blood dolls’, in addition to questing, combat, and exsanguinating occasional pedestrians.”

Clockwork Throne president Thomas Sitch says the studio is offering “Patreon backers a special ‘back door’ to more risqué content” with the “Mature Content Pass” starting at $5 per month.

“Vampires are, after all, a sexual metaphor, and shows like True Blood and Game of Thrones have generated a broader cultural acceptance of the erotic as part of a larger saga,” he opines. “So this is only another step in our evolution: Shadow’s Kiss has always been a narrative game for adults; now the full range of its possibilities will be expanded.”

Animation looks weird, but setting is good.

AOC had nekkedness too. Then the EU weighed in. We will see how long this lasts.

Would be nice if this one makes it to release . I would love a vampire mmo and it would certainly give my girlfriend something else to sink her teeth into ( besides me ) .

I just wanted to point out again that this project’s original Alpha 1 date was June 2017. Has the team ever addressed why they missed that date?

This is great news. Finally someone has the stones to make an M rated MMO.

Curious about the game, but I’ll hold back any excitement.

This reminds me, whatever did happen to Venus Rising?

It used to have its own website but I can’t locate it now. I believe VR got canceled a couple of years back. Something about problems with HeroEngine.

How do I sign up to the MOP Words with Friends tournament? I take it that the prize for winning is entry to the Shadow’s Kiss Alpha ?

…so according to the Dresden Files mechanics, these would be White Court vampires then? O.o

I thought the white court was the emotional/psychic/whatever while the red court was the actual bloodsucker/exsanguinators. But it’s been a while since I’ve read any of those books.

Yeah, but reading the developer seducing philosophy for this game as quoted for this article, they seem more White than Red. o.O

It’s in alpha… I’ll be in retirement by the time it publishes, if it publishes

Don’t worry this project will never see the light of day.
