“In-App Backing” – Dracula Twins debuts proof-of-concept crowdfunding as the game launches free of charge with five full-blown levels plus a cliff-hanger boss battle so that potential backers can sample the game immediately. By visiting the Store-O-Dead, supporters can back Dracula Twins directly by purchasing virtual items in the form of (wholly optional) skulls, or pay ransom to release the twins’ best friend Franislav early, neither of which affects play mechanics, but both providing a crowdfunding mechanism for anyone to help support ongoing development.
“Offering an in-game crowdfunding mechanism allows us to reach potential backers on an international level with a proof-of-concept to demonstrate Dracula Twins' feasibility, and to consider player-feedback before more levels, play mechanics and visual effects are added to the game”, said Bjorn Larsson, author of Dracula Twins and Executive Producer at Legendo.
Synopsis – Dracula Twins stars jump-and-running vampiretwins Drac and Dragana. Their best friend, Franislav, has been mistakenly captured by the wicked Doctor Lifelust, a zombie-loving vampire hunter who wants to create an elixir of life using vampire blood, so that he can live forever. Furthermore, the doctor’s undead army have invaded Transylvania and taken control over Castle Moonskull, the Dracula family’s age-old residence.
