Quote from the Dev
“We are having a lot of fun making Vampire Survivors bigger and adding content,” said poncle lead Luca Galante. “But with Adventures we wanted to add something a little different that players at all levels can engage with, from newcomers to veteran garlic enjoyers. We hope the fans love this new way to play Vampire Survivors and the extremely deep lore drops that come with it!”
