In a medieval European village, the evil vampire Count
Monte Carlo has been kidnapping women and terrorizing the countryside. Wearing leather and armed with a whip, the vampire hunter
Rusty fights through various undead monsters and confronts the Count.
Rusty is an obscure, commercially released game for the PC-98 computer system in Japan in 1993. It has a lot of uncanny similarities with Castlevania: Rondo of Blood
. What's especially interesting is that Rusty was released a few months before Rondo, so it may have been a game that Konami was working on, and then scrapped and sold to the developers, a company called C-Lab.
I plan on doing a livestream of Rusty on October 25 at 2pm, at my Twitch channel here.
It's going to be my first stream, so there may be technical problems early on and I might need to move the time around for personal reasons. Also I don't currently have a working microphone. I haven't played beyond the first level, so there should be a lot of hilarious deaths. The game also has a great soundtrack so be sure to stop on by.
