Nachtigal tells the story of Miranda Namatgira, a bright college student who travels to Belgium for a holiday. One evening, she loses track of time while sight-seeing and becomes lost in the woods. Just as she's about to consider camping outdoors for the night, Miranda happens upon a hauntingly beautiful castle. She decides to venture inside, but nothing could have prepared her for the bloody sight she beholds there...or for the two vampires who capture her.


Miranda Namatgira is a Belgian history and architecture buff who is studying European history and art in college. She is bright and generally optimistic, but can also be sharp-tongued and sarcastic. Miranda likes to help people and often gets into trouble because of her unwillingness to give up. Luckily, her sensitivity and skills of perception have helped her out on multiple occasions.

Luca Faveaux is a cold man who possesses a dry wit. A third generation vampire, his duty is to serve and protect the Nachtigal family, particularly Adrian. He is not one to suffer fools lightly and often clashes with Adrian on matters of propriety. At first, he believes it would be best for Adrian and the Nachtigal family if Miranda is killed, but over time his opinion of her changes...

Adrian van de Nachtigal, Count de Mercy-Argenteau-d'Ochain, is a very confident vampire who is in constant search of entertainment. Being the youngest of his second generation siblings, he's used to being doted on. He is intrigued by Miranda, but gets angry when she tries to pry into his secrets... Though he may not always admit it, he is very thankful for Luca's friendship and guidance.

I played this ages ago, but I am commenting now. This was really fun to play. Both of the guys were fun/interesting to deal with. The "bad" endings did freak me out a bit, but then again, who isn't? Is there going to be some sort of sequel to this? Not like a direct sequel, but kind of, with a new MC but in the same universe?

That was actually really fun to play! I don't know the difference in my steps between Pet and 3 endings, but I actually had a lot of fun! Adrian's ending was surprising, but Luca gave me the common quiet/distant guy in an otome feel, but that's why I go for those characters first. Also, screw you and the Egbert scene! I'm a raging Arachnophobe and I freaked out just thinking about it. <3

LOVE this game so very much! If only it could be longer! (drool~)

I really enjoyed this game, the endings were sometimes romantic, and sometimes surprising!

Love this game will there be a sequel related to supernatural beings I would love to see one with more than just vampires. maybe werewolves and witches?

A some sort of sequel/follow-up will be nice, wouldn't it?

I love this game so much thank you for making it
