Vampire Survivors is being adapted into an animated show

One of the biggest surprise hits of the last year was Vampire Survivors – a horde fighting indie game which requires you only to move your character. Despite its simple controls and concept, Vampire Survivors has a surprising amount of depth, both in its gameplay as well as the title’s story and lore. That said, it is still surprising to see that an animated adaptation of the game has now been officially announced.

As reported by Deadline, Vampire Survivors is set to get an animated adaptation for television in collaboration with studio Story Kitchen – co-founded by John Wick creator and writer Derek Kolstad and producer Dmitri M. Johnson.

The adaptation is still in its early stages of development, with neither a writer nor an associated network having been announced. That said, in speaking on this upcoming adaptation, Vampire Survivors’ creator Luca Galante said:

“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! It’s also great to be partnering up with such experienced and talented people to make the show. I do wonder if they’ve realized that there isn’t a single vampire in Vampire Survivors, though.”

Story Kitchen co-founder Dmitri M. Johnson added that “When our Head of Creative, Dan Jevons, flagged Vampire Survivors for us last year upon its initial release, we were prepared to dismiss it as just another vampire game. Hundreds of hours played later, we were all hooked, and we just could not get enough!! Needless to say, we’re truly honored to partner with this incredible team and to continue the Vampire Survivors story!”

As mentioned, Vampire Survivors has a lot of lore and story hidden behind the simplistic gameplay, and so while the announcement may initially come as a surprise to most, creating an adaptation does make sense. It will be interesting to see how the animated show is presented. We will have to wait and see.
