Oferia Weiss, The Diabolical Nurse

Oferia Weiss, The Diabolical Nurse, is one of the most mysterious and sinister characters in Nocturnarya. A nurse without any scruple or affection for vampires or humans. For her, vampires and humans are simply commodities, pieces that she can manipulate to achieve her selfish and secret purposes.

Oferia is the granddaughter of a renowned and respected figure in the medical field. From an early age, she harbored a deep desire to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps, aspiring to become a doctor herself. However, her dreams were shattered when a macabre and mysterious incident led to her expulsion from medical school, closing the doors of the medical school for her. Not that she really cared. She always despised the medical school, its ethics and its methods, which in her opinion, were useless and archaic.

Undeterred by the setback, she resorted to practicing nursing in secret, taking up a position at a discreet and modest hospital located on the outskirts of Nocturnarya. It’s here that her true nature is revealed; a person devoid of moral scruples, lacking in professional ethics, and driven solely by a relentless pursuit of wealth and personal gain. These unsavory qualities have earned her the notorious moniker of the Diabolical Nurse. In a dark and clandestine operation, she has delved into the macabre world of selling human blood to vampires. Aware of their insatiable thirst for the crimson elixir of life, she has become a crucial intermediary, providing a steady supply of this vital fluid to satisfy their immortal cravings. Her involvement in this illicit trade has allowed her to accumulate substantial wealth, which fuels her insatiable desire for a life of opulence and luxury.

Driven by envy towards the seemingly eternal existence of vampires, Oferia has hatched a sinister plan to extend her own lifespan and revel in the riches that accompany it. Rumors circulate that she possesses a mysterious artifact, a dark and forbidden object capable of extracting every last drop of blood from a human body within a matter of minutes. This artifact, if indeed real, holds the potential to grant her the eternal life she craves, while also granting her unfathomable power and control. With her reputation as the Diabolical Nurse spreading like a sinister whisper throughout the shadows of Nocturnarya, Oferia Weiss’ dark ambitions and malevolent actions have cast a chilling pall over the unsuspecting kingdom. As her dubious activities continue to thrive under the cloak of secrecy, the humans and vampires of Nocturnarya remain oblivious to the sinister force that lurks within their midst, waiting for the opportune moment to unleash her diabolical plans.

Next game: Nocturnarya

We’re currently focused on our next Match 3 game, entitled Nocturnarya. At the time of this writing, the vampiric story is fully completed and all the new code for level design is already tested. Regarding the gameplay, our goal with Nocturnarya is to include a few levels with a bit of screen scrolling, and also a new type of path on the boards. And some Match 3 puzzles, of course.

According to our plans, the game should be completed by Q2 2023. Hopefully. For the time being, here’s the logo and Raphaela’s guidance.
