Vampire Survivors 1.0 coming soon along with a price increase

By - | Views: 21,651

Vampire Survivors, a simple game that exploded in popularity is set for the big 1.0 release soon and so the price will be rising next week. This game works great on Linux with Proton and is Steam Deck Verified.

Currently only £2.09 / $2.99 / €2.39, it's an absolute steal for what it is. They haven't said how much it will increase to but they did say it will happen on September 21st so you should really just go and buy it now. Seriously, buy it. You will thank me later for all that free time you no longer have as the hours disappear.

They also released a small update to keep you going before the 1.0 that includes:

  • 1 new achievement: Reach Level 99 with Poe.
  • The last Arcana: XXI - Blood Astronomia.
  • 1 new "weapon" : this is more like a minor gameplay feature.
  • 1 new SECRET.

Update trailer is below:

Anyone else getting greeted by Missing Executable:
 
Steam/steamapps/common/Vampire Survivors/launcher.sh

?

Forcing Proton (tried Experimental, 7, and 6) I get greeted by an io exception. Same my Arch and my Fedora notebook.

Well, at least it works great on my Steam Deck.

Had this on first start as well. But forcing 7.0-4 made it work for me.

Game does have a Linux build but for some reason it has this issue by default. Joining to public beta branch of the game on Steam fixes this.

So by default it tries to use Linux build but it doesn't work by default.

As for why this is not an issue on Deck, Deck defaults to Proton.

Launcher.sh exist in here which is most likely what joining to public beta branch directs to.

it really is worth the price of entry; I've put 40 hours into it and only stopped playing to play the games it inspired

Good to know it's coming, I skimmed the news and Native Linux support was last mentioned back in February as "still being worked on".
