As the most feared and powerful members of the undead, vampires still have to follow a lot of rules. You have to stay out of the sunlight. Garlic and crucifixes are prohibited. You can’t cross running water, you can’t enter churches, and if someone throws rice at your feet, you have to stand there and count the grains.
The most annoying thing is that you can’t enter someone’s house unless they invite you.
But here’s a great solution to the last rule: Instead of going into your victims’ houses, just ask them to come to yours. In the first-person management simulator Bloody Hell Hotel, which looks like a mix of House Flipper, Stardew Valley and V Rising, you are a vampire who renovates your spacious mansion and turns it into a stylish hotel. And unlike most hotel owners, you can dine on the blood of your guests.
As a former bloodsucker, you wake up after a centuries-long sleep to find your once grand mansion in complete chaos. It will be a lot of work to restore the property, but on the bright side, you are a vampire. As you can see in the trailer above, via IGN, you can enchant a broom to start sweeping and use telekinetic powers to move furniture and clean up debris. Install appliances that probably weren’t invented the last time you were awake, grow plants in the gloomy basement and harvest them for meals, and decorate your hotel to make it appealing to bloodthirsty rich, er, visitors.
Making your guests happy is important to any hotel manager, but once again, don’t forget that you are a bloody vampire. If a particular guest is a pest, kicking in their door and drinking their blood is much easier than dealing with a bad review. And there is no need to let the fresh carcass go to waste. In addition to milking your undead cow and collecting eggs from zombie chickens, you can use your deceased guests as meat while preparing delicious meals for room service.
Turning a dusty, dilapidated mansion into a luxury hotel takes more than magic and a supply of necks. Resources have to come from somewhere, so you can forge weapons in your basement and visit the catacombs below your property to slay skeletons, zombies, and other horrors while looking for new ways to improve your hotel amenities. You can even recruit vampire attendants to help you out, giving them jobs at the front desk or in the kitchen.
Bloody Hell Hotel comes from the creator of the horror puzzle platformer Dark. There is no release date yet, but the developer plans to release it on Vapor, GoG (opens in a new tab)and the epic game store.
