Frank and Drake is the adventure of two housemates who develop a relationship without seeing each other because of their extraordinary (and confining) nature: Frank can only live during the day, while Drake works exclusively at night.

The indie developers from the AppNormals Team are trying to completely retell the basic theme of Frankenstein and Dracula with this very artistic presentation and special gameplay elements. Frank and Drake will be released for PC and Mac on Steam, a release date is not yet known.
