Dead of Night: Vampires vs. Werewolves vs. Steampunk
August 13th, 2010 | Connor Turner

This is going to be incredibly difficult, but bear with me. I’m going to try and review the incredibly addictive new Vampire vs. Werewolves game – Dead of Night – without making reference to them. You know THEM. You know, that other group of Vampires and Werewolves which have infected pop-culture for the past four years.

So bear with me.

Dead of Night is the latest release from Calgary’s BigStackStudios, the team behind one of this summer’s biggest hits Sigma.

If you’re familiar with the BigStack catalog you’ll be familiar with the gameplay and concept of Hottie Hookups (or just familiar with Russel Fee’s fantastic review from earlier this year) then you’ll be familiar with this game. As Dead of Night is a second rendition of the Hottie Hookups concept. This time, instead of pitting nerds and sexy bar stars against one another other, Dead of Night pits Vampires, Werewolves, and the dread (and incredibly cool) Steampunk Van Helsing against each other in a epic battle for the souls of humankind.

April 18th, 2010 | Russ Fee

Since the dawn of civilization humans have strived to procreate with the strongest and healthiest of their peers. Also since the dawn of civilization, the weakened masses have tried to kill the vibe and keep sexy people like you and I from gettin’ down. It’s time to take the power back, and BigStack Studios’ latest offering aims to do just that.

Hottie Hookups is a strategy game involving task management that works in a similar way to the developers previous hit games Sally’s Salon and Sally’s Spa. You are tasked with giving the powers of natural selection a helping hand by getting the sexy members of society together whilst keeping the vibe-killing nerds from wrecking the action.
