Video game

The series was adapted into a point-and-click adventure horror video game, released in 1996 by HeR Interactive. It tells the story of teenager Elena Gilbert, who, while visiting an art gallery, witnesses her little sister being a victim of a bat-like animal. Suspicions arise among the citizens of Fells Church that a vampire may be walking among them. After the attack, it is revealed to Elana that Stefan Salvatore, the doctor's assistant working at the hospital where Elana's sister is staying, is actually a vampire that died in a duel with his brother, Damon "Smith" Salvatore in the 1500's. Damon also happens to be a student biology teacher at Elana's high school. Stefan suggests to Elana that the other vampire attacking Fell's Church, whoever the are, may be defeated by a Ring of Power, and the rest of the game is spent preparing for the ritual and creation of the Ring of Power. Along the way Elana can interact with several characters, including her friend Bonnie McCullough and Bonnie's boss, who happens to own a spiritual dagger that is key to defeating the villain. After creating the ring of power, in a twist reveal, Elana learns that the vampire that attacked her sister is Makkhail Romanoff, owner of the Art Gallery and manipulative lover of Caroline Forbes, Elana's friend from kindergarten turned Mean Girl. After the defeat of Makkhail, Elana allows Stefan to bite her so they can be together forever. The game was made at the peak of popularity for interactive movie games and features live-action actors and footage.[21]
