Visual Novel Review: First Bite – Bad Blood by First Bites Games


First Bite: Bad Blood is a funny, sexy, queer visual novel about vampires. In this sequel, you’re a newly turned vampire enjoying life with your little found family, but the Council has sent someone to determine whether you get to keep living your unlife, and you’ll need all the help you can get from your clanmates.

Official Description:

Pick up where you left off as Noe, a freshly turned vampire adjusting to immortality with your new family. But things aren’t quite as simple as you hoped when you’re being eased into vampire life by a murder-himbo obsessed with Eurodance, a narcissist with an online shopping addiction, and a wild card with a penchant for BDSM.

When Very Important Emails from the Council of Vampires the trio blissfully ignored come back to bite them in the form of an old flame with a thirst for more than just timely filed paperwork, you’ll need to prove that your existence is justified, or prepare to meet your maker…

For real this time.

Long Review:

This was such a fun sequel! These vampires put the “ridiculous” in “ridiculously hot.” (Meant as a compliment, of course.)

The devs leaned into the relationships between all the vampires for this one. So much hilarious bickering, but also so much heartwarming loyalty.

The first game was mostly getting to know the trio, but this one had a bit more plot. I found two endings, one good, one bad, I don’t know if there are any more. The choices are mostly small ones, though some do affect the ending, and many lead to entertaining responses or immediate outcomes. You also get to make some choices about who you spend time with, and, in some cases, how sexy that time is.

Speaking of which, this sequel turned up the heat! Including one very sexy CG to unlock.

The art was, once again, beautiful. Same hot vampires (plus one new hot vampire), but with some new outfits, 3 new CGs (including the aforementioned sexy one), and new portraits of Valeria, Ilyas, and Laurel in the credits! Also, if you thought Ilyas wasn’t wearing much before, wait until you see his clubbing outfit 😉

The partial voice acting was fantastic (also again). And how do they all have such sexy voices? The voice actor playing Ilyas must’ve especially had fun because Ilyas had some wild lines, and the actor said them so earnestly (just as Ilyas would) that it cracked me up. Like the soft, sweet, achingly romantic delivery of, “No one takes a dick like you, baby.”

Honestly, Ilyas in general just cracks me up. Not to play favorites, but… I do love that himbo.

I think it took me about 4 hours total to see everything with the different sires and different choices.

If you enjoyed the first game, I definitely recommend grabbing this one. If you haven’t played the first game yet, I recommend that too, and you can learn more and find my review of First Bite here.

Overall, this was a fun, sexy, queer, bite-sized sequel that made me laugh! I’m glad I got to spend more time with these vampires!

Source/Cost: I received a free copy of this game. This has not influenced my review.

Short Review:

– Same vampires you know and love

– Small plot
– More heat
– More gorgeous art

– A fun, bite-sized sequel!


(May not include everything)
