Vampire: The Masquerade - Shadows of New York out now for Linux PC

By - | Views: 8,892

Draw Distance has released their latest stylish visual novel with Vampire: The Masquerade - Shadows of New York, acting as a stand-alone expansion and a companion piece to their previous title, Coteries of New York.

What's really striking with Shadows of New York (and Coteries before it) is the artwork, it's absolutely brilliant. Rich details and overall just a fantastic style. They are probably some of the absolute best looking visual novels around. It's good to see more like it too, opening up a rich genre to more people just like Werewolf: The Apocalypse — Heart of the Forest will hopefully too.

Feature Highlights:

  • A visual novel tackling themes of personal and political horror, suitable for both Vampire: The Masquerade veterans, and fans of narrative-driven games who are newcomers to the setting.
  • Play as a member of the Lasombra clan. Formerly vicious foes of the Camarilla, the Magisters decided to search for safety in the ranks of their former enemies. Master the shadows and communicate with the inhabitants of the Other Side, but beware – Oblivion is always lurking out there, ready to devour you whole.
  • Explore the streets of the Big Apple. While you search for ways to satiate your bloodthirst, catch glimpses of various fascinating vignettes and forge connections with the eccentric inhabitants of the city. One playthrough won’t be enough to see it all.
  • Shape your mind, shape your fate. You used to avoid defining yourself and tried to stay neutral, but given your situation, you can no longer afford to do so. The choices you make will alter the way you think, and your thinking will alter the paths you take.

As a reminder, you don't need to have played Coteries to enjoy this. It's entirely standalone, with similar themes and a shared world.

You can buy it on GOG and Steam.

What if my PC runs OS/2? Or Haiku? Or FreeBSD?

Yes, listing the individual operating systems is more helpful. I would really like to know if some game is actually released for FreeBSD...

Problem in mainstream gaming media is actually little bit worse than listing just PC. PC might mean Windows or it could include Mac, Linux and Windows (Carrion for example). Or review could list just Windows even if game actually had Linux support right at launch.

So we really should be grateful for GamingOnLinux as it's lot more reliable source for Linux games than mainstream gaming media.
That's it, whenever any of us see someone being an ass and saying 'no support for Linux, because we want the developers to only concentrate on Windows' we should start asking for *BSD ports (because why limit ourselves to FreeBSD when there is NetBSD, OpenBSD, etc...)

Granted, in my mind for STEAM, it shouldn't matter beyond Linux / Mac / Windows, as they don't support other operating systems. Nor do they support anything beyond x86. So for example, Tower 57 runs on Amiga OS4, doesn't mean I expect all sites to advertise that. Though review sites should for sure list all the platforms they're for and not just 'PC'. Back in the day, we'd just call them 'IBM Clones', remember that? Regardless of OS that was ran on them, they were all just clones, and the cool (nerdy) kids ran with the ST, Amiga, etc.
