Vampireville is a hidden object puzzle game set in the eerie Malgrey Castle. The player assumes the role of Michael Christensen, who is sent by his boss to appraise the castle so it can be put up for sale before it is taken by the government. No heir has claimed it for a hundred years. Michael’s boss has sent other appraisers to the castle before, but they all have disappeared or became insane. This makes Michael reluctant, but he needs his job, so he agrees and set off to the castle.
As Michael explores the castle, he gets to meet the castle’s inhabitants. He needs to search for clues about what happened to his colleagues. Players explore the rooms and grounds of the castle to search for answers. There are 20 chapters in the game. In addition to the hidden object aspect of the game, players will also need to solve puzzles using the objects they find in each location.
The upper left corner of the game interface contains the journal that users can read to see the current goal. The inventory is located at the upper part of the screen. The game can be played in full screen or windowed mode. Players can adjust the volume of the music and sound effects, and replay completed chapters. The player’s progress is saved after each chapter is completed.
