[Daily article] June 7: Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption

Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption is a 2000 role-playing video game
developed by Nihilistic Software. Released by Activision for Microsoft
Windows on June 7, 2000, and for Mac OS in 2001, the game is based on
White Wolf Publishing’s role-playing game Vampire: The Masquerade. It
follows the vampire Christof Romuald from the Dark Ages of 12th century
Prague and Vienna to modern-day London and New York City in search of
his humanity and his kidnapped love, the nun Anezka. The player controls
Christof and up to three allies in first- and third-person perspectives.
Nihilistic took 24 months to complete the game on a budget of US$1.8
million. The game received a mixed critical response; reviewers praised
its graphics and multiplayer functionality, but were polarized by the
quality of the story and combat. Its high-quality graphics and sound ran
poorly on some computer systems. It received the 1999 Game Critics
Awards for Best Role-Playing Game. Vampire: The Masquerade –
Bloodlines, set in the same fictional universe, was released in November
2004.
