September 1st, 2010 – Winter Wolves, developers of several award-winning dating sims and roleplaying games, has announced the release of Vera Blanc: Ghost In The Castle, the second installment in the Vera Blanc series.
Take on the role of Vera Blanc, a young and beautiful woman with an extraordinary power: the ability to read other people's minds! Daughter of Emmanuel Blanc, one of the richest people on Earth, she left her life of luxury to use her powers to work alongside paranormal detective Brandon Mackey.
In this second episode, our heroine travels to a small village in central Italy. The town's legendary ghost seems like nothing more than a quaint story, but a string of murders and suicides all point to the castle's ghost, and locals are getting scared. It's up to Brandon and Vera to uncover the truth behind the ghost, but trouble from Eva and her mysterious "Master" might end things for good.
The game plays like an adventure game or visual novel, but you'll have to make frequent choices and play several minigames that will influence the course of the story. The minigames range from the classic "spot the difference," to more unique challenges like guessing a phrase in order to read someone's mind.
The game is available for PC, Mac and Linux: the free demo is available for everyone at www.winterwolves.com. Registration is only US$19.99, and may be handled online from the company's web site.
