    "This interactive reading/text based game is amazing. It is played in real time and is the very best choose your own path type game. The game is about survival and completely depends on you to make the right choices. The haunting yet beautiful graphics immerse you into this world so easily. I really like the fact that I can play this without requiring internet access so I can dive in anywhere."

    "As someone who grew up loving the old Text Based Internet Games I was looking for a solution to have a nostalgia feel and I found a Gem in Choice of the Vampire. The gameplay is really fun and absorbant and the story line is fun to follow along. Definitely worth downloading and playing if you miss the days of text games on Prodigy."
