Project IntroductionThe core mechanics are very simple and easy to understand:
You have 4 different types of mirrors:
A static mirror type you cannot interact with.
A mirror type that you can rotate. (Q and E)
A mirror type that you can tilt. (Q and E)
And a mirror type that you can move around. (E)
You have to make the choice: how can I position and manipulate the mirrors, so that they reflect the light beam in the direction of the crystal lock?
At the same time, you have to watch out to not get burned (which comes naturally, being a vampire) or block your own path to the exit.
While you explore your vampire castle, you encounter mysterious black objects with dark magic. They reveal your true identity and tell a story of your vampire past.
To unlock their story, you have to shine the light onto them.
The black objects can be seen as additional quests throughout the game.
