Kalypso Media's upcoming title, Dark, is a comic book style stealth-vampire game where you play as the undead Eric Bane. The latest promotional video for the game features Eric sneaking around and beating the living mess out of guards, cops and anyone else who gets in his way.
The real hook for the game is that the atmosphere has this sort of underground, nightclub vibe to it. I think it's really cool, especially with the sort corporate modernist look to a lot of the architecture and environments. It helps set the game apart from just about everything else on the market right now and you can see how it looks in action with the trailer below.
Some criticisms have been made about the game's visuals and presentation, but honestly, really? I think the visual style and the animation presentation look good for what the game portrays. It's kind of a moving comic book, so I wouldn't expect a lot of motion-capture, Call of Duty style production values.
So long as the controls aren't wonky and there's a good, smooth basis for the gameplay then I think Dark has a chance of capturing its own niche audience when it launches this year for home consoles and PC.
