Darkestville Castle is a humorous point and click adventure game ala A Vampyre Story

Long ago, a "shooting star" fell on the village of Darkestville ........ in that shooting star was a baby ....... the baby was lovingly taken in by the residents of the Darkestville Castle and she gave it the name Cid ...... Unfortunately ..... it soon became clear that baby Cid was no ordinary baby ...... Cid was a Demon and he was of course not a baby .... ..Cid grew and grew and eventually he grew into a mature Demon. Meanwhile, Cid lives alone in the big castle because all other residents have fled the castle a long time ago. Cid entertains himself by "putting the fear of life" into the inhabitants of the village of Darkestville each night. However.... Dan Teapot, the arch enemy of Cid, intends to totally change the pleasant life of Cid. This Dan Teapot has hired a group of demon fighters, the Romero Brothers, to catch Cid and to kick him out of Darkestville for ever..... Follow Cid during his exciting survival trip, full of danger and intrigues.
