“Be My Horde” Takes on Vampire Survivor
Be My Horde is throwing down the gauntlet to Vampire Survivor, or at least the Polish team from Polished Games (including Michał “kwiść” Chwistek and Łukasz “Pan Dibbler” Kostka) will try to grab the attention of Steam players. The main protagonist of the game is Moriana, a necromancer who has a bone to pick with righteous knights, paladins, and other upright inhabitants of an unnamed fantasy world. Like in other similar productions, the main goal will be to survive successive waves of enemies, which become increasingly powerful over time. This requires maneuvering between opponents and acquiring upgrades to increase Moriana’s chances of survival, even after her inevitable death (in keeping with the genre’s convention, death will mean the loss of upgrades, but the game will grant the player permanent bonuses).
This is not a complicated premise, but the same can be said of Vampire Survivors and its countless imitators (though some are quite successful; see mentioned Brotato). Perhaps the Polish team will manage to attract players with the unique concept, but will that be enough to overcome the army of competitors on Steam? We will find out soon. Below is the first trailer for Be My Horde.
