Virtual Programming's A Vampyre Story is available now for download and purchase at Mac Game Store. The classic point-and-click adventure follows the exploits of Mona De Lafitte, who attempts to make her escape from her tormenter, Baron Shrowdy von Kiefer.

Deep within the walls of a gloomy castle in the equally gloomy land of Draxsylvania, the young, gifted opera singer Mona De Lafitte is held captive by her tormentor, vampire Baron Shrowdy von Kiefer. Ever since she was transformed into a vampire by Shrowdy and whisked off to Draxsylvania, her greatest wish has been to return to Paris, continue her singing career, and one day become a star at the Paris Opera.
