Bloody hell, it's been 20 years already!?
Ziggurat Interactive had the chance to chat with members of Yacht Club Games about their experience with the BloodRayne franchise and how it has impacted their work as they continued within the video game industry the past decade or so. For those who don’t know, many members of the team at Yacht Club Games previously worked on BloodRayne Betrayal and BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites while working at WayForward.
Original developer WayForward has upgraded its 2011 classic 2D hack ‘n slash platformer with high resolution visuals, modern features, and all-new voice acting performed by original BloodRayne cast members Laura Bailey (Rayne) and Troy Baker (Kagan). Bloodrayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites distills the best parts of the BloodRayne series into a bloody, twitchy, action-packed 2D hack ‘n slash adventure through fifteen challenging stages.
The Brimstone Society has summoned Rayne for one last mission to lead a group of soldiers into a giant underground castle to do battle against none other than her own father, Kagan. When the soldiers prove ineffective against Kagan’s supernatural menaces, it’s up to Rayne to run, jump, cut, and feed her way through gruesome foes, deadly traps, tricky platforming sections, and horrifying bosses. It’s Rayne’s last job — will she “clean house” or find herself six feet under?
