Vampire Survivors might not look like probably the most narratively wealthy videogame of all time, however that is not going to cease developer poncle and media firm Story Kitchen from turning it into an animated tv collection.
“A very powerful factor in Vampire Survivors is the story, so it is a dream come true to see what began as somewhat indie game I made on my weekends come to life as an animated TV show!” poncle founder Luca Galante stated. “It’s additionally nice to be partnering up with such skilled and gifted individuals to make the show. I do marvel in the event that they’ve realized that there is not a single vampire in Vampire Survivors, although.”
It by no means occurred to me that “story” may be such an integral element of Vampire Survivors. I do know there’s loads of lore however that is not the identical factor as story, and ideas of a significant narrative by no means actually entered my thoughts as I wandered across the minimalist top-down world, butchering numerous hundreds of supernatural creatures with numerous weapons and spells. I do know there are fairly a number of surprising surprises because the game progresses—new characters, ranges, that type of factor—however I by no means discovered myself questioning, for example, if Giovanna resented the forces that turned her right into a witch and is quietly plotting vengeance towards them. Perhaps I missed one thing?
Nonetheless, if there’s one factor I realized rising up with Hanna Barbera cartoons, it is that you do not want depth (and even fundamental coherence) to whip up a semi-successful cartoon collection. And naturally the collection can (and little question will) plumb the lore to inform tales that the game itself would not.
Poncle confirmed the information on Twitter, and requested the plain query: Who must be on this factor?

Story Kitchen is a severe associate for this type of factor. It was based by Sonic the Hedgehog movie collection co-producer Dmitri Johnson, John Wick creator Derek Kolstad, and former APA associate Mike Goldberg, and already has a lot of game-related initiatives within the works together with a live-action Sifu movie and a Toejam and Earl film.
In hindsight, perhaps that Tides of the Foscari trailer that dropped a pair weeks in the past was telling us about extra than simply the DLC, eh?
