Description

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi is action driven shock-style horror first person shooter game. You face the challenge of freeing your family and friends from the captivity of a Romanian Count at his castle. As the game progresses it stands clear that all is not what it seems and violence becomes the only way to save yourself, your family and mankind. The first objective of the game is obvious. You have to locate and rescue each of your family members and friends held captive. As you rescue your family, you'll learn about the Count's real goals. Among the more unique features in the game is the time limit (you'll have to rescue everyone before midnight), and that the environments are randomly generated each time you play the game.

Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, the word "nosferatu" does not mean "vampire" or "undead" in Romanian. The term originally came from the old Slavonic word nosufur-atu, which itself was derived from the Greek "nosophoros". "Nosophoros", in ancient Greek, stands for "disease carrier".
