Vampire Survivors has basically reignited the horde shooter genre now right? Developer 8BitSkull (Fates of Ort) has announced their next game with Void Scrappers.
They said it is inspired by Vampire Survivors but clearly they're going their own way with it. This isn't just another auto-attacking horde shooter, they've blasted off into space like Gunlocked. However, unlike Gunlocked this isn't a vertical scrolling-shooter as it gives you a proper arena to fly around in.
"Blast hordes of alien ships into junk. Collect the scrap to upgrade your ship into an unstoppable force of destruction. Unlock new characters and weapons and upgrade your stats between runs.
Collect scrap dropped by your defeated enemies. Use it to upgrade your ship until it becomes unstoppable. Fight and destroy bosses and grab the weapons they drop. Blast hordes of aliens with various projectiles, explosions and kinetic orbitals. Unlock new characters with unique abilities and new weapon and upgrade types. Permanently upgrade your ship stats in between runs."
Just like their previous game Fates of Ort, they do plan full Native Linux support.
You can follow it on Steam.
Also, good grief, Vampire Survivors has a lot to answer for:
- 20 Minutes Till Dawn is like Vampire Survivors with guns — goodbye free time
- Grim Horde is chaotic and there's a good game hiding in there
- Nomad Survival is another great cheap Vampire Survivors styled game
- Halftime Heroes is basically a 3D Vampire Survivors
- Uh oh, Gunlocked is like Vampire Survivors in space and just as absorbing

Quoting: scaineNomad Survival is another great cheap Vampire Survivors styled game
Yeah. I've been sucked into this game for the last 24 hours! I like the idea of a larger number of skills and being able to re-roll the offerings from the start. The music is cool as well!
See more from me
