“In Tides of the Foscari, our story takes us to the rolling hills and wooded lands of Western Europe,” Poncle community manager Beth Molloy told Xbox Wire. “We were heavily influenced by fairy tales and folklore, which whisper warnings to not step too close to foreboding woods.

“The Great Forest is home to all manner of magical beasts, spellcasters, demi-humans, spirits, demons, angels, and the kinds of things you might not want to meet when your lantern flickers out. Here, the barrier between worlds is perilously thin, but there are those who traverse the woods to reach what lies at its center: The Foscari Academy.

“You wouldn’t think that parents of the world’s elite would be eager to send their progeny into danger just to get an education, but The Foscari Academy is no mere school. Here, the next generation of warriors, scholars, and leaders learn what it takes to be masters of their crafts.”

Vampire Survivors is a roeguelike shoot ’em up which sees players choosing one of numerous characters, who then automatically attack as the player fights through waves of monsters with the aim being to survive for as long as possible.

The title won the Best Game and Best Design prizes at the BAFTA Games Awards on Thursday.
