Vampires Dawn 3: The Crimson Realm Demo – English Translation

Vampires Dawn 3: The Crimson Realm by Marlex is the third installment of the popular vampire retro 2D RPG series from Germany. A story full of vampires, blood, and tragic moments awaits you!

I’m happy to have contributed a part to the English translation of the demo and will most likely also be involved in the translation of the full version.

Play the demo on Steam now and add the game to your wishlist! And for all those who don’t know the series yet: Parts 1 and 2 are available for free on the official website:


“Follow Asgar Serran’s bloody path through a world in which humankind only has the Holy Crusade to prevent extinction. Is there still hope or will the vampires finally conquer the world? And what dark purpose do the ancient Elras have by hunting the vampires mercilessly?”


Family Man – German Translation

Family Man by Broken Bear Games is a dark, story-led RPG that asks the question: When pushed to the limits of your own morality, how far would you go for the sake of your family?

Together with the Tolma4 Team I contributed a part to the German translation. The game is now available on Steam!


“You owe money to the mob, and you’ve got three weeks to pay it back. Will you flip burgers and earn an honest living while scraping the money together… or will you take on some dirty jobs for more cash, but potentially push your family away?

Every decision you make affects everyone around you. The neighborhood will blossom or perish under the weight of your decisions, while the path you choose may lead to your household becoming stronger than ever… or the breakdown of your marriage and relationship with your child.”

Love Esquire – German Translation

Love Esquire by Yangyang Mobile is a romantic-comedy visual novel/dating sim with a touch of old-school RPG combat. You take on the role of a young squire in the game and must conquer the hearts of the five young ladies!

The game is now available on Steam and is completely playable with German subtitles! (At the time of this post, however, the translation is still in beta and will be revised again.)


“In this game, you’re not a famous knight, but a good-for-nothing squire who’s on a quest to find man’s greatest pleasure. Getting the girl won’t be easy though, since most of them are waaay out of your league!

To make things worse: you have a few months left before this huge war happens, and the only thing you know is how to milk cows. Good luck cramming years worth of training into four months! If it’s any consolation, you get a medal if you die. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

No one believes that a lowly squire can save the world while banging – err, bagging – the girl of his dreams… but with a shitton of dumb luck, well… you might just prove them wrong!

Welcome to the world of Love Esquire, and may the fertility god have mercy on your virginity.”



Stone Story RPG – German Translation

Stone Story RPG by Martian Rex is an RPG in a dark and ominous world, animated entirely in ASCII symbols. Together with Michael Stein I contributed a part to the German translation of the game. The game is now available in Early Access on Steam.


“The game takes elements from various genres and repackages them into a wholly unique experience. One of Stone Story’s defining mechanics is that you have no direct control of the player character, as an A.I. does all the exploring, combat and looting. That doesn’t mean this is an idle game. Potions and special abilities are maximized by good timing. Boss fights are intense, requiring quick item swaps if the boss changes patterns.Your natural curiosity will be your greatest tool as you delve into the game and discover there’s more beneath its deceptively simple surface.”


Star Vikings – German Translation

ZU – German Translation

ZU is a RPG with a few puzzle elements by Victor Moura (Cronus). It was originally developed in 30 days for the event “Make a Game, Win a Game” in the beginning of 2013. This event was inspired by the “RPG Maker VX Ace Lite Cook Off”, meaning the game was originally made on RPG Maker VX Ace Lite and following the correspondent limitations.


“Allan is a young man that, after encountering a mysterious entity called Zu, submitted himself to explore his world, willing to fulfill a personal objective. In this new world formed by memories that seems to be a merging of dreams and nightmares, Allan must find his way by exploring hostile lands and interacting with odd and bizarre beings.”

Vampires Dawn: The Crimson Realm

Vampires Dawn: The Crimson Realm

Something for RPG fans this time. In Germany well-known and hopefully soon international; a new title of the Vampires Dawn series by Marlex. Vampires Dawn: Reign of Blood and Vampires Dawn II: Ancient Blood were only released in German, but the game for mobiles Vampires Dawn: Deceit of Heretics (short: DoH) was released in English as well. Vampires Dawn: The Crimson Realm (short: TCR) is not yet released but it is supposed to bring the story of the mobile game to an end and link it to Vampires Dawn: Reign of Blood. The game will be released in German and English.

DoH was about the vampire Vince Neras, who had to face the vampire hunter Vincent Weynard and his priestess Ayrene Molana Trevos in the Holy Crusade. He got active support from both of his skeleton servants Romus and Manok, as well as from the only recent changed Lara Vynus. TCR will finalize this story and will partly run parallel to the story of the first game Reign of Blood. You can look forward to a reunion with old friends but also new characters. TCR will be told from different perspectives, which are supposed to cast a different light on the events. Of course, there are a lot of spells, secrets, and monsters, as becomes a good RPG.

For all those who got confused with all these titles; this is the chronological order of the storyline:
Vampires Dawn: Deceit of Heretics (2007)
Vampires Dawn: The Crimson Realm (TBA)
Vampires Dawn: Reign of Blood (2001)
Vampires Dawn II: Ancient Blood (2005)

Vampires Dawn: The Crimson Realm is supposed to be the first commercial title of the series and will be funded with Crowdfunding. Therefore, to realize this project the team will raise money until February 28, 2013. The first screenshots and pieces of music are promising and Vampires Dawn stands for quality since 2001 in the matter of story and technique. After the hopefully successful Crowdfunding project, we can look forward to a new vampire adventure soon. More information and how you can help with the project under:
