The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is not related to the movie. It is loosely based on Bram Stoker's Dracula but it rather has a unique story.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will have about 8-10 hours of gameplay. But don't forget that it's the first part of a trilogy!

I can't tell you the exact number of the available levels in the game, yet. Our level up system is more complicated than the traditional one. One of our designers will post a detailed explanation here on the devblog soon.

Will the other 2 games come out shortly after the first, or will they be split up into yearly releases? 8-10 hours seems a little disappointing. Will you be able to start a new game+ on harder difficulty and continue to progress your existing character? Any word on how much the game will cost? Will it be available on Steam?

Thanks :) The game looks great. I can't wait to play it!

Depending on our plans there will be maximum half year between two parts.
Yes, you can start a new game on harder difficulty with your existing character. The game will cost about 15 EUR and you will find it on Steam and XBLA.

Considering how the time span between the parts and the time-span of the play time, is this game a episodic sort of game or more like sequels, such as the Diablo series?

So, as there will be an *(eventual)* OSX release for mac, will there be a need for Mac Beta-testers (for OSX specific bugs - Interface/FPS/run-speed issues, etc, and so forth?).

I realize many times mac-ports are often done as an afterthought - source code taken and compiled into a binary and then released. However, I thought I'd ask anyway, as a dedicated Mac gamer.

Thanks!

Is there true co-operative play? Does it play the storyline or it it more competitive multiplayer? Is there "couch co-op"?

There isn't "couch co-op" in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Basically we are working on co-op multiplayer, which plays the storyline not on the competitive mode. Maybe later :)

Good evening, Linda.

What are the plans for Van Helsing's brothers(the other playable characters), will they play and look like Helsing(like Castle Crashers) or will they be different and unique(different abilities and such)?

Thank you.
