Vampire Survivors for the win.

Vampire Survivors is one of the top-rated games of 2022. The giant indie game was officially launched on PC in October of this year after being made available for early access at the end of 2021.

Previously only accessible to PC Game Game Pass subscribers, Vampire Survivors became playable by console Game Pass subscribers as of November 10. Both the console and PC versions of Vampire Survivors were launched as day-one releases.

Major Takeaways:

  • Xbox head Phil Spencer spent nearly 200 hours on Vampire Survivors.
  • Spencer has been tweeting about his addiction to the game, even agreeing with it being the indie game of the year.

Only a few titles, especially not from Xbox first-party studios receive attention from the Xbox head but it seems like Phil Spencer played Vampire Survivors for almost 200 hours in just two weeks.

Spencer has reportedly spent nearly all of his free time playing Vampire Survivors, indicating that he is deeply engrossed in the game. He started playing Vampire Survivors on November 11 and has so far logged nearly 193 hours in the game, according to his Xbox Live profile on TrueAchievements.

On November 12, a day after the game was made available for Xbox consoles, Spence said on Twitter that he plans to play Vampire Survivors for long hours. It appears that he kept his promise because the Xbox head spent more precisely a little over 192 hours or 8 days, and 29 minutes, playing the game in just two weeks.

Spencer finished 96 out of 142 achievements during this period. This proves Spencer is actually playing Vampire Survivors and that the 193 hours listed on the tracking page are not an error.

The Head of  Xbox has really been hooked on the game considering his recent tweets. On November 12, he shared a screenshot from the game saying “Garlic ftw”.

Later, Spencer explained how his Vampire Survivor character’s fully evolved Garlic and a Wand that increased his Gather Range helped him complete a 25-minute run.

He went on to explain the game’s greatness by responding to Gamertag host and creator Parris, who had said that Vampire Survivors was worth a try.

Gary Whitta, the screenwriter of Rogue One, who believes Vampire Survivors is one of the year’s best games, also got a heads-up from Spencer in replies. 

Vampire Survivors is a gothic horror casual survival game with roguelike elements. Luca Galante, commonly known as Poncle, is a single-person game developer who worked on this project. It is currently accessible on PC, Android, Linux, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Xbox.

On Steam, 98% of users have given the PC version of Vampire Survivors an overwhelmingly Positive review. Sadly, the Xbox version of the game has insufficient reviews to receive a Metacritic score; however, the PC version received a respectable 84/100.
