Which member of the Van Helsing family should take the role of the fearsome monster hunter in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing ? Vote now!

BUDAPEST – October 29, 2012 – After the long debates surrounding the cameo appearance of young Van Helsing in the teaser video earlier this year, it seems that he will fade back into darkness after all of his struggles to become famous, being too young for this dangerous adventure. As he has to leave the story so early, NeocoreGames decided to call all available Van Helsings to a huge audition to find the protagonist they really need. They've already come to the final round: three tough heroes are left…

NeocoreGames shares the reasons for this decision:

"The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is an action-RPG set in a universe that closely resembles a 19th-century Eastern Europe where monsters, magic and weird technology is real. The game is focusing on the trials of Van Helsing, son of the legendary monster hunter who teams up with his father’s former enemies to save the land of Borgovia.

Being the son of the legendary hunter, we always knew that our hero couldn’t be an old, grey-haired veteran, but as soon as we saw our young Van Helsing in action, he still struck us as a bit too young and inexperienced for the grand adventure we had in mind. Meanwhile, the feedback from our excellent community increased our doubts. Here, at NeocoreGames we value our fans tremendously, so we wanted to keep everything they liked and change what they didn’t: the hero of the story.

It is always difficult to let someone go, but after long, restless nights we decided that Van Helsing Junior has to be replaced. We wish this young man plenty of success for his future career as a hunter, but we need someone tougher, a more experienced member of the Van Helsing family, a real expert on monsters. Someone who can definitely save the world – again.

So we have begun our search for the real Van Helsing, this time with the help of our fans. We want to include our friends in the decision-making process, so each member of the community will be able to pick his or her favorite character concept by vote.

In order to make the selection easier, we have prepared the video above that presents the various contestants with the most frightening situation that they will ever face…

And now it is your turn: follow our new developer blog, watch the video, spread the word and participate in the selection process to find the right hunter for the right purposes! "
