'Vampire Survivors' To Get Animated Series By Sonic Movie Producer And John Wick Writer/Creator

Vampire Survivors is a gothic horror casual game with rogue-lite elements, where your choices can allow you to quickly snowball against the hundreds of monsters that get thrown at you.

Mow down thousands of night creatures and survive until dawn!

Vampire Survivors is a time survival game with minimalistic gameplay and roguelite elements.

Hell is empty, the devils are here, and there's no place to run or hide. All you can do is survive as long as you can until death inevitably puts an end to your struggles. Gather gold in each run to buy upgrades and help the next survivor

Developer poncle, with the help of games consulting agency Robot Teddy, is working with Story Kitchen (headed by Dmitri Johnson, co-producer of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie series, John Wick writer/creator Derek Kolstad and former APA agent/partner Mike Goldberg) to bring the animated Vampire Survivors series to life. 

The show will be created by media company Story Kitchen - headed by Dmitri Johnson, co-producer of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie series, John Wick writer/creator Derek Kolstad and former APA agent/partner Mike Goldberg - alongside Vampire Survivors’ developer poncle and the support of games consulting agency Robot Teddy.

"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 realised that there isn't a single vampire in Vampire Survivors, though,” says Luca Galante, founder of poncle.

"Collaborating with poncle on Vampire Survivors has been a coffin-load of fun. And now, with Story Kitchen on board, we're thrilled to be adding even more depth to the world of the undead. We can't wait to sink our teeth into this project and help bring together this uncanny combination of thrilling storytelling, excellent animation, and undeadly creatures," said Alessandro Bovenzi, Director of Business Development at Robot Teddy.

Just as in the game, it is yet to be confirmed if the series will feature any actual vampires. We’ve heard they are camera shy and thus hard to cast.

Key Features:

  • Choose upgrades carefully and survive the night using only your wits! 
  • Unlock characters, levels, weapons and more as you play!
  • Evolve from a lone fighter into a mind-bogglingly, overpowered, supernatural beings! 

Vampire Survivors is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam).
