The Visitor - Classic Horror VN


The VISITOR
~ Classic Horror ~
Interactive Story

PG-13! -- What was originally meant to be a B-grade Horror spoof turned into a full B-grade Horror Story. While writing it, the plot became way more complicated than I ever expected with two well-earned characters deaths (off-screen, of course,) a couple of vampire bites, and more than a few characters getting their lights punched out.

  2. Have you tried to do a much murkier version of Nosferatu? I would if I had the graphic artist and the musical genius beside me. It could be so much fun! XD

    1. 'Nostferatu' is actually a favorite of mine, and it would indeed lend itself wonderfully to a visual novel story! You'll have to explain what you mean by 'murkier' though.

      The biggest problem to making any game is creating the illustrations, or in my case, finding the right images to make into illustrations. 'Nosferatu' is a classic film -- even more so than Dracula. Finding images from 'Nosferatu' large enough, (at least 1100 tall,) and sharp enough to work with is extremely difficult. I've tried using screen captures from the movie, but the images come out blurry.

      To illustrate 'Nosferatu' properly, I might have to resort to drawing all the images myself which is Really time-consuming. I did so for one of my more recent games: "The Adventures of Prince Ivan'. It took over 6 months to complete because the characters took several weeks to create -- each. 'Nosferatu' has a fairly large cast. It would likely take me almost a year to do the whole story. I'm not so sure I can dedicate that much time to a free game.

    1. The source as in; Where I found my music?
      -- Zero Project has a website, as does Kevin MacLeod. As for Ozzie Nielson Orchestra, just Google it. Their songs are available all over the internet.

  4. Hi Ms. Hawke, I don't know if you'll see this comment, but this is the best. I've played through it about a million times, I especially liked Dwight, partially because Dwight Frye is my favorite horror actor of all time, and partially because he was so funny in this game. Reminds me of myself when I'm single. (Just kidding about that last part.) And thanks so much for including SuperPaul's Let's Play on your blog, he's amazing and I was delighted to find that he covered this.

    1. I'm thrilled you enjoyed my little game! I had a lot of fun making it. Of course I included SuperPaul's Let's Play, he really is amazing -- and thorough. It turned out that he likes the old classic horror films too.

      Thank you so much for playing,
      -- Morgan
