GDC trailer for vampire stealth game Dark has a dull bite

Looks like something a handful of people won't forget about maybe

Talk about getting on the vampire hype train too late. I forgot Dark even existed, but it's coming out this summer. I think this trailer has enough oomph to keep the game in my mind for at least the duration of this post (hopefully), but otherwise it's rather forgettable. There seems to be some Max Payne-style narration and a smattering of stealth and power elements picked and pieced together from other games.

Also, is it just me, or is that the most boring use of cel shading ever? I didn't even notice it was stylized at all at first. Plus, he's a vampire? Ditch the hoodrat clothes and stealth. Waltz into your desired place of being with a debonair air dressed to the nines and just seduce your way through levels. What fear of guns can the undead have? I suppose it'll be poorly narratively contextualized somehow.

Maybe Dark will be an okay thing, but it doesn't look memorable and its spunky, one-letter title won't be doing it any favors when a bunch of other games supersede it in internet searches. Speaking of, have you bought Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon yet?
