General Questions

What is Romancelvania?

Romancelvania is a darkly comic genre mashup, combining side-scrolling action and tongue-in-cheek romance into one absurd and unforgettable adventure.

Play as a lovelorn, brooding Drac who, after a century of moping around post-heartbreak, is thrown into a monster reality-dating show, hosted by the Grim Reaper! Explore Transylvania’s perilous countryside as you slay absurd baddies on your hunt for the most eligible monsters. Will Drac find “Love at first Bite”, or discover “Love Sucks”?"

What can fans of Romancelvania expect?

Romancelvania’s fans will be able to experience living as the star of a reality show, while restoring your former glory after a century of heartbreak. As you explore past Drac’s castle into unknown territories, you will be able to recruit new contestants to become a dateable monster. You can flirt, seduce, and date any, none, or all monsters available to you to become closer to them and learn more about their “human” side. With a breadth of weapons, abilities, and items to unlock and equip, hack-and-slash absurd baddies across Transylvania with more intimidating boss enemies waiting for you around the corner. Exploration is king as you travel to stunning platformer environments full of secret treasures, wacky enemies, and hidden date spots to better improve your combat and relationship odds.

In-Game Questions

What are my character options?

You will have appearance and voice options made available to you toward the start of the game. Select between masculine and feminine presenting appearances and voices to feel your most gothic. Note that these choices will be permanent and can not be undone.

Does the game include LGBTQ+ options?

Choices matter here at Romancelvania, where dating furry werewolves or underwater sirens are valid options. There are no restrictions on who you can romance no matter how you choose to present your vampire self. Feel free to date or befriend your favorite or everyone, it’s up to you!

Does the game include NSFW and/or mature content?

We have a saying on the team “naughty not dirty.” While the game is about building romantic and emotional relationships with characters, that does not mean we are including graphic nudity. We tell the story we need to tell, which may include language, dark comedy, stylized (not realistic) violence, substance abuse, sexual content, etc. However, none of this is gratuitous or exploitative. These are story-rich characters (despite being supernatural) who have very human needs, desires, and flaws.

Is this a Visual Novel (VN)?

The game is not a visual novel, but does include elements from other visual novels and dating sim games that you may be familiar with like conversation options, RPG mechanics, multiple romantic endings, and more.

How difficult is this game?

The game aligns more so with action-adventure platformers, but we are inspired by some of our favorite Metroidvania-like games like Castlevania. With three difficulty options to choose from, the game can be as casual or hardcore as you prefer. Whenever you’re here for the story, the romance, or the combat, there is variety for every type of player. Note that you can always change the difficulty option at any point throughout your playthrough.
