Vampire Survivors 1.0 coming soon along with a price increase

By - | Views: 19,240

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:

To each their own, but my kids bought this game a couple months ago, based on the hype, and from what I see, they only played ~1h each before getting bored. Personally I did two runs and it didn't appeal to me at all.

Speaking of the steam reviews... I should probably buy it immediately, no? ;-)

Thanks for the heads-up, Liam - I've been meaning to grab Vampire Survivors, and evidently now's the right time to do so!

Any chance they'll support a Linux release? ;)

Well, not every game is for everybody. VS is a very specific niche, and in my case I got over 80h playtime for the ~2€.

Imho VS gets more fun after you managed to hit the 20 min mark and successfully evolve a weapon. Reaching the powerspike when everything comes together is satifying.

They attempted a Native Linux build and had numerous problems with it.

Linux build works in public beta branch. Although there is a slight issue with it on Nvidia Prime systems.

Works perfectly fine on Intel igpu.

I absolutely agree.The first runs are short and may be frustrating some people, but because the game grants you exp anyway and you level up, there is a certain point it will simply tick and become incredibly satisfying

Thanks for the heads up, Liam! I immediately bought it when I saw the article.

I just had time for my first-ever run, and lasted 11:25;

Pengling's first Vampire Survivors run

I've already fallen in love with it*. I can definitely see myself getting a lot out of this one - thanks again Liam!

*Give me a "Bomberman Survivors" and I think I'd be in heaven!

Gosh, that might be a really good project to try out Godot 4. :)
