Scare yourself stupid in Dog of Dracula

Don't say I didn't warn you!

In today's free game that you can't help but play because of its ridiculous title: Dog of Dracula: Barbecue Densetsu is "an otaku noir nakige about a groomer stuck in a sauceless city, developed by major depressive auteurs team batsu as part of their class project on marxist theory."

You play as an office worker who is inexplicably wearing a construction jacket and hangs out with Dracula and ... okay, I'm not going to try to explain this to you, because I'd need to understand what the hell I just played, first.

What it is, is a visual novel with a peculiar, kitsch aesthetic that shamelessly uses stretched, ugly images, Limp Bizkit, and borrows quite a few tracks from classic SNES role-playing games. Dog of Dracula isn't for everyone, but I think anyone will at least get a kick out of how wacky it is.
