Fate's Bite: A Vampire Hetalia Fan Game

ABOUT:


Fate's Bite is a story-heavy visual novel following Emcee (name-able), a young woman who just returned from years of boarding school abroad. Pressured by the head maid she returns home to attend a ball. However, it seems her past (including the parts she is oblivious to) has followed her once again. After accidentally bumping into a stranger she faints, awaking in a strange mansion.

Eight beautiful strangers tower above her. They mention a Foretelling, the life-changing meeting of a human, the 'Chosen', and a vampire. However, it seems they grabbed the wrong human as she has never heard of the prophecy let alone vampires before. To avoid death she must continue with the Foretelling, choosing a soulmate who is directly linked to her.

[center]CHARACTERS: [/center]

There are eight men, all romance-able, all with their own dark, twisted pasts.

-Alfred: The former best friend who has turned a cold shoulder to Emcee.

Image

-Arthur: The vampire whose mood can turn on a dime, from all smiles to sinister glares.

Image

-Feliciano: A flirtatious vampire with a love for seeing Emcee scared.

Image

-Francis: A vampire who never means what he says, treating Emcee like a toy.

Image

-Ivan: A generally easy-going vampire who has a not-so-hidden dark side.

Image

-Kiku: A sadistic vampire who loves to treat Emcee like a servant rather than a soulmate.

Image

-Ludwig: A no-nonsense vampire who will punish anyone breaking the rules.

Image

-Yao: A vampire with the most knowledge of the Foretelling and perhaps the darkest secret of all.

Image

[center]FEATURES:[/center]


~Eight routes
~High quality backgrounds
~Ornamental GUI
~Dialogue choices as well as choices affecting routes
~Ending types such as Vampire, Man Servant, and Brute.
~Unlock-able content including character backstories, CGs, and secret endings
~Moving background music and immersive sfx
~Possibly character animations such as Live2d
~Free to play
~Rated PG-13 for blood, suggestive themes, swearing, and other things of a dark nature.


This project began a few years ago by a team on Tumblr; I was added as a writer. Unfortunately the team fell apart and the project was dropped. With permission I was able to resurrect the project and have been publishing it to Wattpad as a fanfiction. I'm quite excited and devoted to this VN and can't wait to see it become a full-fledged game. So far it's a team of one, though I hope to expand!

A choice button. There are also blue and green colors, which may indicate whether you've made a good, bad, or 'true' choice.

Oof, you have just hit me with my past obsession love of Hetalia, super intrigued to the release of this game >v>

What do you think about the premise? Vampires are a classic, but I have to admit, the fact that it's based on Hetalia draws me in quite a bit.

Do you enjoy visual novels with dark themes? Certainly. I feel like there are a few boundaries that I wouldn't cross/read, but that's me personally. As long as stories are tagged with proper warning and subject matters handled with respect, I think it's fine. (I think there are many levels of this, depending on how dark a route you want to go.)

What do you think of the cast? I'm a little surprised at Feli and Kiku's personality descriptions. Certainly makes me interested in the story.

Thanks so much for your comment! :) On the game release page/info section I'll list any possible warnings. Feliciano and Kiku may seem a little out of character, though that's due to their (vampire) pasts.

11/21 Update

#7 Post by Neeka » Wed Nov 21, 2018 8:07 pm

Here are some character sketches and brief bios for the cast. (All character art + CGs drawn by Akua)
Francis:
Image

Cancer. July 14th.

Likes: Roses, confidence, tea, anything aesthetically appealing.

Dislikes: Tears, weaknesses, imperfections *besides in “beauty”*.

Info: He seems to have lost every bit of attachment within him, and although he may whisper sweet words into READER’s ear, he is not genuine about it in any way. Still, Francis is a strong believer in true beauty, and appreciates everything appealing to the eye.

Arthur

Image

Taurus. April 23rd.

Likes: Teasing others, cake, thunderstorms.

Dislikes: Being manipulated, religion.

Character Info: Arthur is the most confusing out of the eight, as he has a “double personality”. On the surface, he seems to be a giant teaser, but that is due to the arrogance and hot-headedness bubbled within. Whenever READER irks him, Arthur’s true colors begin to shine, and he replaces his sweet words with nasty ones.
Kiku
Image

Aquarius. February 11th.

Likes: sleep, music, guitar, desserts, cats, cheesy jokes.

Dislikes: people, medicine, sour food.

Character Info: To fully understand Kiku, READER may wish to take a deeper look into his personality. This seemingly ill-mannered, loud-mouthed man is a lot more tender than it seems, and if one prods at the right places, they will find a simply insecure soul.

Another sprite sketch! (Sorry for the size :/) Up next will be Germany.

Alfred F. Jones
Image

Cancer. July 4th.

Likes: Lack of restrictions, the ocean, being alone, piano.

Dislikes: Loud noises, friendship, sweets.

Character Info: Even though Alfred is reader’s childhood friend, he greets her coldly, crumbling their once strong ties of friendship like it had never existed. He harbors a deep seated grudge towards reader however she can’t remember why.

Ludwig Beilschmidt

Image


Libra. October 3rd.
Likes: Cooking, tea, hair gel, dogs, books, discipline.
Dislikes: Garrulous people, hugs, bad manners.
Character Info: Ludwig is strict, uptight, and even frightening at times. He yearns for a world with many rules and regulations to keep its inhabitants away from harm. Could Ludwig’s rigid mindset possibly be connected to READER, and is his heart softer than it seems?

Hey all! I've still been making good progress on the game. Each character route is about 1/5th done, give or take. Here's a mock screenshot of a scene on Yao's Route~ The game will typically look like this though small changes may be made.



Image


I'm also finding nice transition animations as well. :)

I hope to add another update soon!

Character Sketch: Feliciano

#11 Post by Neeka » Mon Dec 24, 2018 5:21 pm

Image

Feliciano Vargas:
Aries. March 17th.
Likes: Pomegranates, hugs, humming, puppets
Dislikes: Liars, being alone
Character Info: At first glance Feliciano may appear to be a sweet yet childish being, but after closer observation, he is revealed to have a monstrous side bottled within him. Feliciano enjoys watching his prey suffer the most and although he is described as being an “idiot”, this man is a lot more clever than he seems.

Drawn by the lovely Akua~! Next up is Ivan. ^^

Good News! All sprites have been drawn and the CG for the demo is in the works. (Please show Akua some love!~) Half of the character's prologues have been created in the engine, which means the demo should be released within a few days!

Thank you for your interest and support :)

Hello everyone! You can now play the demo here:

There's also a character poll (beta) where you can vote for your favorite character and route. For the full version each route will most likely be released one at a time. Please feel free to leave some feedback as I'd love to hear what you enjoyed/didn't enjoy!
