There exist tales that don't exist.

The year 2021, Rural Italy, there lived an evil person named Bisconte Draculó, whose many evil magics created a bad world filled with famine and suffering. It's now up to the members of the Belpaese family to end his reign of terror and return good food to the table.

Vampire Survivors is currently a time survival game with minimalistic gameplay and roguelite elements.
There's no place where to hide, all you can do is try to survive a cursed night and get as much gold as possible for the next survivor, before Death inevitably puts an end to your struggles.


Content in the demo web version:

  • 7 characters
  • 22 weapons and 12 power-ups
  • 10 pickups
  • 23 achievements
  • 1 stage
  • Supports mouse, keyboard, controller, and touch screen.


Starting tips:
  • Take your time to grab gems and items, they won't disappear.
  • Get just two or three offensive weapons, but focus on leveling them up one at a time.
  • Armor and Luck are good starting power-ups to spend money on.


  • What's different from the Steam version?
    The Steam version is receiving regular content updates, while the web version on Itch is to consider pretty much like a demo.
  • Is it possible to transfer the save file to the Steam version?
    No, there are plans to look into it but it's highly unlikely it will happen.

- New: walking animations for the playable characters
- Bugfix: some projectiles freezing on screen
- Bugfix: quitting from the Pause menu doesn't skip the score page anymore
- Tweak: treasure data displays more accurate information

Great game! I am totally addicted. Are you looking for a pixel artist by any chance?

Absolutely love this game, fantastic work!


Love the game but only have a Mac...any chance you will port it on steam? Keep it up!

amazing game, bought it on steam!

It played very nicely on my Android phone. It'd be nice to see on Google Play eventually.  I'll definitely be buying this amazing game on Steam.

This was really fun.  I guess I didn't get high enough level to meet the final big bad, but I enjoyed it without it feeling like a slog.

20 minutes I got like 50 frames per minute and died :(

Hi! Great game! If you find time, option to rebind keys would be great. I use non-standard keyboard layout + do not have arrows. :-)
Keep up great work! BTW:

Nice showcase with good ideas for further development.

Hey! Loved this game on but the Steam version does not work on OS X. Any plans for that in the future?

Great  game. I've recently maxed the achievements on steam.  I have one question as a fellow game developer. What engine are you using (or maybe you created your own)?

The framework is Phaser 3 :)

Thank you! It’s been a long time since I had a game I want to play again and again. Bought it on steam thanks to the Splatercat gameplay video.

It's a fun game. I certainly had a good time playing it. I'd recommend it. Though is it just me or do enemies spawn slightly less from above the character.

I did notice one thing that seems to be a glitch. If you get chest when you have a mostly full set of items it will sometimes give you new items so that you end up with more then the maximum number of secondary items. I only noticed it happen with chests that give out multiple items though.

Hi there. I seem to be missing five items in the collection. Any hints on how to get them.


Hi, it's probably weapon evolutions or rare pickups.

If you're missing a slot next to one of these weapons: Magic Wand, Knife, Axe, King Bible, or Fire Wand
Then you're missing the evolution of that weapon.

If you're mising a slot near the bottom of the collection, then you're missing a rare pickup and increasing your Luck and trying to destroy as many braziers as possible should help.


How to evolve weapons
Level up a weapon until it's maxed out and satisfy its requirements for evolution, that are different for each weapon. Once all requirements are satisfied, there will be a chance to find the evolved version of the weapon in Treasure Chests. For example:
Magic Wand LV8 + Empty Tome + Treasure Chest = Holy Wand


Ah, it must be the weapon evolutions. Thanks for the help.
