Vampire Survivors rival comes to Steam, and it’s less than $10

Artifact Seeker: Legend of Aurorium is a roguelike action game in the vein of Vampire Survivors, and it's currently discounted on Steam.

Vampire Survivors rival comes to Steam: A blonde elf woman with a green bow in her hair, from Artifact Seeker: Legend of Aurorium.

It takes a lot to create a game capable of pulling players away from Vampire Survivors, which has done a great job of keeping its audience happily slaying screens crowded with monsters through a steady stream of regular updates. Lynkpin Game is working to do just that, though, with the newly launched Artifact Seeker: Legend of Aurorium, a roguelike that draws from Vampire Survivors’ chaotic battlefields and Diablo 4’s story structure to create a flashy new spin on its genre.

Artifact Seeker: Legend of Aurorium immediately makes a strong impression on the strength of its colorful, bold visuals. The roguelike game blends hand drawn character portraits with polygonal models of monsters and human (or human like) characters to create an extremely vibrant, attention grabbing aesthetic.

The game sees players fighting battles and upgrading their character with a wide array of purchasable artifacts after each session. Alongside this loop of monster killing and character upgrading, Artifact Seeker also features a world filled with heroes to meet (some of whom can be unlocked and made playable) and choice based quests to complete. Players can also share their artifacts with other players online, helping one another to get stronger and face off against increasingly tough enemies.
