Vampire Survivors, which sold more than 4 million copies on Steam alone, won a bunch of prestigious awards (including Golden Joystick Awards, D.I.C.E. Awards and two BAFTA Games Awards) and started a separate new genre, will be the basis for the animated series. This is reported by GamesIndustry.biz.
Studio poncle will work on the adaptation with Story Kitchen, a company run by Dmitri Johnson, Derek Kolstad, and Mike Goldberg.
Johnson is a co-producer of the Sonic the Hedgehog film franchise, and Kolstad wrote the first three films in the John Wick series.
“The most important thing in Vampire Survivors is the story, so it’s a dream come true to see what started as a little indie game I made on my weekends come to life as an animated TV show!” said Poncle founder Luca Galante.”It’s also great to be partnering up with such experienced and talented people to make the show.”
Well, after the success of the animated series Dota: Dragon’s Blood, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, Castlevania, The Cuphead Show! та many others interest from filmmakers in successful game franchises will only grow.
We will remind you, on April 13, 2023, Vampire Survivors received the second paid DLC Tides of the Foscari with new heroes, weapons, levels, and music. Like the base game, the DLC is very inexpensive, right now both Legacy of the Moonspell DLC and Tides of the Foscari can be purchased for only UAH 50 if you have the base game. The full set with the base game costs UAH 117.
