So, I’ve been hearing a lot about this game called Vampire Survivors lately. At first, I didn’t think it would be my cup of tea. I’m not usually a fan of idle games and the idea of “just moving around with the left stick” didn’t sound like it would be very fun. But, boy was I wrong!
I picked up the game on Steam during a sale, and at just $8, I thought it was worth a try. My first game was a bit confusing – I was surrounded by bats and wasn’t really sure what was happening.
But as I started to understand the mechanics and level up, I found myself really enjoying it. It’s a bit like the soulsborne games where dying is part of the learning process and hidden lore. It’s also like the old bullet hell or shmup games from my younger days. The firing is automatic, but there’s still a lot of depth to the gameplay.
One of the things I love about Vampire Survivors is how it keeps surprising me. There are some really cool, Lovecraftian elements to the game that I wasn’t expecting. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else, but let’s just say that things can get pretty weird!
Overall, I’ve been having a great time playing Vampire Survivors. It’s become my go-to game when I’m tired but still want to play something. Playing it on the Win 3 or Steam Deck is a great experience and it’s perfect for relaxing on the couch with YouTube.
Sometimes, turning on the laptop isn’t an option. I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be playing Vampire Survivors more than Peglin thanks to this!
