February 12, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

Receiving a new Valentine’s trailer today, I Want To Be Human from Rising Star Games and Sinclair Strange is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in April 2016.

Starring a vampire girl who goes on a bloodthirsty rampage after her boyfriend is turned into a hat by evil forces trying to take over the world, I Want To Be Human is a platformer/shooter. Featuring original songs from Jimmy Urine of Mindless Self Indulgence, I Want To Be Human will have you unlocking new abilities as you travel through five in-game worlds.

Here’s the full description:

The story is about a boy, who meets a vampire girl. Boy falls in love with said vampire girl, and then boy gets turned into a hat by evil forces trying to take over the world… wait, say what? Well, there is only one thing vampire girl can do about that: go on a bloodthirsty rampage of death and destruction in a quest to get her boyfriend back!

I Want To Be Human is packed with crazy platform blasting action, a pulsing electropunk audio score, wildly dark tongue-in-cheek humour, and lashings of exploding body parts. Players will aid our vampiric protagonist on her journey through hell and back (literally) to save her beau. Along the journey players will unlock abilities they never knew they had while blasting their way through five worlds of blood-soaked monochromatic mayhem. And who knows, they might even set a new high ‘sgore’ (ahem) into the bargain…

I Want To Be Human Key Features:

  • Vampire Justice – Love, betrayal, and endless destruction, all drenched in pixelated gore that spans five different worlds
  • Bullets for my Valentine – Upgrade your trusty shotgun and take the fight to the flock – the ones who are responsible for turning your boyfriend into trendy headgear
  • Tongue, meet cheek – Discover a world packed with off-the-wall dark humour and a unique art style that could only come from the mind of Sinclair Strange

Previously, Rising Star Games Managing Director Martin Defries said, “Sometimes, you meet a developer who you immediately know you want to work with, and Sinclair Strange is definitely that man. What he’s doing with I Want To Be Human defies logic, but there’s no denying it’s shaping up to be amazing. I can’t wait to see what everyone makes of it…”
