Quote from the Developer

“I started making Vampire Survivors at the peak of the pandemic after working for a popular burger chain and later as a web developer, because I wanted something to play in the evenings for myself. The attacks are designed to be automic so that the player can concentrate on something else while playing and just have a good time,” said poncle founder Luca Galante. “I never thought Vampire Survivors would become such a big hit. It’s really an indie dream come true! I can’t wait until players can see the surprises we have planned for the full launch day!”
