Trivia

Art style

The game's art direction was largely inspired by Edward Gorey illustrations. As such, the game was originally planned to be drawn in Gorey's black-and-white pen-and-ink style.

Namesakes

  • The game's distinctive spelling of "vampire" as "vampyre" is a tribute to the first western vampire tale, The Vampyre by John Polidori.
  • Mona de Laffite takes her surname from Laffite's Landing, a loading dock in the Pirates of the Caribbean theme park ride at Disneyland. Froderick's name was similarly borrowed from the popular 1974 Mel Brooks film Young Frankenstein.
