Somehow, you've managed to get me interested without even showing off any characters, which is quite an accomplishment. Super excited to see that the first Red Embrace did well enough to warrant a sequel, that's awesome for you guys! ^_^ I'll be following/promoting the Kickstarter for sure even if I'm unable to back.

I haven't played any games by you yet (I prefer G/B to B/B generally, though I do plan on getting around to them eventually, I promise!) but I'm seriously considering backing this. It gives me MAJOR Vampire: Masquerade vibes, and all I wanted to do after playing Bloodlines was get my otome fix in that universe. This is right up my alley, and the fact that I have the option to play a woman is awesome. I'll keep an eye out for the Kickstarter!

Oof, color me (red) intrigued. I find myself really drawn to this one, and personally I've never really been into the whole vampire scene. Maybe it's because of the whole "HOLLYWOOD" thing?

I think there's already something dark and seductive, lore-wise, regarding Hollywood and so it would blend perfectly with the darkness and seduction of vampire society.

Having lived in Hollywood and LA myself, in the city we say: "No one makes it BIG in this city without either losing, sacrificing or killing something."

Excited to see the character cards, whenever they finally become available! (PS. The sunglasses vampire reminds me of Slash right now)

@Zelan--Thanks for the kind words, your support is much appreciated~

@andromache--Nailed it! VtM is a huge inspiration for sure, especially in the vein of dark/twisted humor. REH veers more into the philosophical/psychological side of things, but if you like VtM, I can almost guarantee you'll enjoy REH.

@illum--Completely agree regarding Hollywood, and that quote also fits perfectly~ It's a place very representative of darkness and glamor, I think, which--as you mentioned--fits vampires so well.

† † † † † † † † † † † † † † †

Speaking of character cards, let me introduce our poster character. His name is Markus, and he's just thrilled to tell you about his Twitter account, as well. Follow him for a lot of in-character updates from his point of view~

September 28th? Done! Take my money!

In all honesty though, I'm really excited to see the advancement of this! :) I will be watching for any updates.

Damn, the artwork on this so far is really top notch, not just in clean execution, but I think it really conveys the mood you're going for so far! I wonder if you've taken any inspiration from World of Darkness vampires? I get those vibes, but that might just be because it's the form of vampire media I most engage in haha.

@HimeNaya--Thank you~ I'll be updating this thread regularly, as well as all our socials.

@Inksword--I'm really glad to hear you think so! Yes indeed, WoD vampires are a top inspiration, especially on the level of a complex vampire society/politics rather than simply isolated individuals.

And for today's announcement, the next love interest reveal--Heath!

Ahhhh I *knew* he’d be House Mavvar lol! Randal (from his shadowy preview before the official character card) was always going to be my pick regardless.

Like a vampire with werewolf tendencies. >_< ~<3 kyaaaaaaa

<3 Glad you like him, Illum! He's my favorite char as well, both in terms of appearance and backstory~

For today's announcement...

MC Customization in Red Embrace: Hollywood

It’s time to finally reveal the appearance of the MC--who goes by he, she, or they--and the many options you’ll get to customize your appearance!

Image

Image


As mentioned in our info post for RE:H, your customized MC will appear in CGs. This is the only reason why we don’t have options like additional hairstyles, different facial features, and different outfits planned--the CG changes would be much costlier and more numerous.

However, if we hit a high Kickstarter stretch goal, it’s still possible! Help us raise the funds to provide more options for your unique vampire appearance by pledging to the game when we launch September 28th. Sign up to be notified for the launch~

Remember, you can be anything--because you’re already dead.​
