Van Helsing II - Interview @ IncGamers

IncGamers interviews Viktor and Orsolya from Neocore Games to discuss The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II.

IncGamers – David Reid: In The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II you’ve previously mentioned a darker and more deeper story with a new carnival area, could you expand upon this if more details have now been fleshed out?

Viktor: The first adventure already introduced some parts of Old Borgova, and this time we are going to venture deeper into the ancient downtown, where everything is more traditional and more… well, gothic. One of this forgotten corners is the dark carnival, a hideout for some strange creatures, and it ties the story straight into the mystical past of Borgovia that we had only mentioned briefly in the first game, the true story of the vampire lords who ruled the land for centuries… and their secrets.

IG: In the story you can currently make choices, will these affect the game’s ending?

Viktor: One of our goals is to achieve that all the choices you make during the game will add up eventually and even if they don’t affect the ending, they will have an impact on the big events.

IG: Has the original Van Helsing’s personality changed since his last adventure? Is he more reserved in what he says for example or loves having his witty banter with Lady Katarina?

Viktor: Van Helsing finished his first great adventure with a classic showdown when he defeated the evil, mad scientist. But as now we pick up where we left off, for him it’s time to face the consequences. What happens after the fall of the villain? There is a vacuum to be filled, obviously. The gothic metropolis of weird science is on the brink of destruction and chaos rules the streets. Van Helsing is a hunter, but now has to take care of other people too, as a reluctant leader of the Resistance, which is a new role for him and he’s struggling with it. There are some power players in Borgova who don’t regard him as a liberator. So he has changed a bit, yes. On the other hand, he is still the mysterious stranger, the hunter behind the mask we know from the first game.
