Check out what's been going on with CQM 4.0 and see a new character preview for Arturo, a street gang enforcer.
Embrace the sultry swagger and urban grime of the modern vampire. This is a fan group for those who wish to share their experiences in both video games and the pen and paper series.
The story begins 25 years earlier at the peak of the tabletop roleplaying games industry. Back in the 1990s, a company named White Wolf loomed over this arcane landscape with a hugely successful series of games about vampires, werewolves, and wizards lurking behind our mundane reality.
Years before Twilight and its sulky undead hordes, World of Darkness mixed punk-rock rebellion and gothic style into the vampire mythos, grabbing the 90s zeitgeist by the throat and selling millions of books in the process. There was even a short-lived Aaron Spelling television show.
Rising printing costs and the growth of video games brought trouble to White Wolf, before it was acquired by CCP Games who mishandeled not the crossover, but all of its managment since then.
Whats going on with The World of Darkness series in video games?
Paradox Interactive has announced their acquisition of White Wolf Publishing, the company behind the popular World of Darkness roleplaying franchise.
As a subsidiary of Paradox, White Wolf Publishing is set to operate as an independent entity with a dedicated team, led by former Paradox EVP of Business Development Tobias Sjögren, who will now serve as CEO of White Wolf. The company will (according to a press release announcing the sale), "pursue development opportunities across relevant categories of games" under the brand.
A statement on the White Wolf Publishing website states that the company aims to, "centralize all aspects of the universe to manage it with the love and care it deserves," and that they are, "re-evaluating our business relationships to make sure we're working with the best creators, developers and artists". A tweet from Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester has promised further details on these partnerships in the coming weeks.
