Vampire Survivors is a time-survival horde game that started something of a craze, with many games copying their blueprint and now Vampire Survivors 1.0 is out.
With an Overwhelmingly Positive user review score from over 100,000 people, it's clearly hit the mark and it's easy to see why. With simple pick up and go gameplay, and the still low price at the 1.0 release — it's an ideal game to sink some time into regardless of it being on a coffee break or half your evening.
In the 1.0 release they've added quite a lot including a new event stage, new character art, a new weapon, a new B-side soundtrack, lots more translations, Twitch integration, an "Inverse Mode" that flips the maps, an Endless Mode that gets progressively more difficult forever and lots more.
Going by their previously announced roadmap, they're still working on a game engine port along with a supported Linux version once that's done.
For such a simple game, I've sunk a surprising amount of hours into it. With the 1.0 release, no doubt I will be playing plenty more of it, although it has to compete with Brotato for my time which is very similar and also great. I really do love just how insane these games get once you've put a few minutes into them, with the screen covered by enemies as all your abilities are flying around.
There's just something about these simple games I can't get enough of. I can easily recommend you go and pick this one up, lots of replay value and plenty to unlock as you go through it.
You can buy it on Steam.
