A new and innovative survival type game.

This game is really fun. It has a Diablo-esque feel to it, as well as, elements of Valheim and Conan. It has a different "feel" than other games, because of the nature of the character you play. The "threats" you will encounter make it more of a challenge to survive, and you begin to play the game differently than other survival type games.

V rising really disappointed me. For one, it is different to what i had expected from the video and screenshots of the game (those are later in game) because you start at the very bottom and working your way up is very very tedious and grindy. In theory it is quite a nice idea to start with nothing and building your kingdom from the ground but even the first two hours of playtime weren't fun because of really strong bosses that spawn a ton of minions, having to gather endless amounts of ressources to build the castle (50 wood for one plank, you get about 70 wood from one tree), enemies respawn way too quickly, daytime is pretty much wasted time because in the beginning you aren't equiped to work around it so you just end up idling in the shadows for 5-10 minutes, ... I also feel like the game could explain a bit more, maybe i am used to games that hold your hand a bit more but if you are new to this kind of game you are basically thrown in at the deep end and expected to start swimming immediately.

A survival crafting game with the emphasis on vampires and building castles while also gathering an army of servants. I am satisfied with what I have seen so far. Game is still in early access but it has A LOT of content.

An innovative game that combines base building, RPG and vampires! The game may not look like much at first. But once you get to learn about the game more, the experience becomes addictive, making you want more content. Free expansion is going to be released in May 2023. It's a good time to pick up this game!
