Astirian-Rae Games announced a new colony simulator management title, Dracula’s Castle. Set in the year 1897 Dracula the lord of darkness and infamous vampire now manages his towns and minions in this sim. As you prepare to travel to England aboard the Demeter. That’s the classic ship that Dracula traveled to England on in Bram Stoker’s original novel Dracula. The ship is not the only thing making its way from the source material into the game. Classic characters such as Abraham Van Helsing the legendary vampire hunter will be an obstacle.
“I wanted to make an accessible management game but I also wanted to take a deep dive into some of the vampire lore that I sort of really fell in love with in the early 90’s. I’m a huge fan of the kind of classical take on vampires — you know, the sort of pre-industrial era, dawn of the new world space. Lots of harpsichord. And I’m tremendously excited to wrap that feeling around some of the RPG elements that usually tend to sit well with the base building genre.”Daragh Wickham of Astirian-Rae Games
