Synopsis

Plot

It is 1899 and you have decided to spend this year's summer vacation in London, despite the unfortunate events that occurred the first time you were there. You have boarded the Orient Express and prepared for a long sleep in your coffin until you arrive in Paris.

Unbeknown to you, the train is stopped by snow blocking the track and it will be some time before help arrives. When you awake, you have an incredible hunger for fresh blood, then you realise that the train is not moving. Have you reached Paris already? It's time to investigate...and satisfy your hunger!

Notes

This was an entry in Ectocomp 2011, where it placed 1st out of 10 entries. The competition entry (release 1) was dated 12 October 2011. An updated version (release 2) was dated 17 December 2011.

This adventure is inspired by two famous novels, mainly Bram Stoker's Dracula and Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. The adventure takes place two years after Count Dracula fled from London, so his return to London must be aboard the original Orient Express. However, Agatha Christie's novel took place on the Simplon Orient Express, which follows a vastly different route. In the author's defence, the detective in this adventure is French, not Belgian, and he is never named as Hercule Poirot, although his habits are clearly the same.
