What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Much like growing a veggie, it takes a good amount of time, care and nurture to grow a healthy community around a new game. As developers, we have experienced the process of going from an idea straight to the final product in the past, which taught us a valuable lesson about the importance of player-driven feedback.

Choosing to integrate Early Access into our development process gives us the time to allow our ideas to flourish, the opportunity to meet a community who cares about the game, and the ability to nurture and improve it through real-time feedback before it reaches its final form.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate about 6 to 12 months from our Early Access release date, but we’re really aiming for a Halloween full release!

While Early Access can be an amazing tool for super small indie teams like us, we also understand that its success relies equally on trust and the expectancy of a good, finished product. This estimate gives us enough time to embrace your feedback and not keep you waiting for any longer than necessary.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Besides the sneak peek into our roadmap below, you can expect more of what you will already be able to enjoy right now! That means more veggies to grow, more biomes to discover, more bosses to fight, more activities to explore and more story to unfold.

Here are a few hints of the main content patches we already have planned (in no particular order):

  • Igor the Glutton
  • Miss Dawn
  • Cave Dwellings
  • Constructibles
  • Pacifist Mode
  • Boss Rush Mode
  • Seasonal Events!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We can confidently say that we’re releasing into Early Access with a well-polished veggie-loving vampire, eager for adventure!

These are some of the features already available in the game:

  • 8 cool bosses to defeat
  • 8 whimsy biomes to explore
  • 6 weather effects to overcome
  • A skill tree with 60 modifiers to pick from
  • A choice of 15 passive boons to progress
  • Over 20 veggies to grow
  • A handful of neat costumes to unlock
  • An introduction to the storyline
  • Full controller support
  • Split-screen local co-op
  • Lots of humor!

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, we will be offering the game at a lower price during Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Let there be feedback! While the main source for general information, bug reports and feedback will likely be our pinned discussions on Steam, you can (and should!) get directly in touch with us through our Discord channel, where we’ll share ideas, answer questions, and just hang out on a daily basis!

But whether you choose to write a report, record a review or join us for a community call on Discord, the important part is that you have your feedback heard - and sincerely appreciated - directly by the whole team working on Voltaire.”

About This Game

Voltaire: The Vegan Vampire is an action-farming-roguelite set in Transylvania, the homeland of Dracula and his rebellious lastborn son, Voltaire. An epiphany results in a change of heart for the young vampire: abandoning blood in favor of a plant-based diet out of spite to prove to his father that neck-biting is not the only way for vampires to thrive.

The Elder Vampire doesn't take kindly to such ideas, but with the help of uncle(s) Frank and Stein, Voltaire slips away from his father’s gaze. Once on his own, he embarks on a creepy, cute odyssey full of veggie recipes, a plant-based lifestyle, and hand-drawn art celebrating the gloriously macabre!

  • Farm during the day with magical seeds to cultivate crops and provide Voltaire with sweet nourishment in his quest to become the world's first vegan vampire!
  • Expand the farm and territory and conquer numerous biomes on Voltaire’s path to chlorophyll-based power.
  • Be wary once night begins to fall. Dracula will send his minions to ruin Voltaire’s crops and make him return to a “proper,” red-blooded diet.

  • Defend the crops against Dracula’s army of ghoulish minions, hell-bent on denying Voltaire his hard-earned oatmeal shake.
  • Embrace vampiric dark powers to defeat the bosses sent by Dracula when his lesser minions fail.
  • Overcome Dracula’s power and inherit his reign through much greener means.

  • Evolve Voltaire into higher vampiric forms thanks to his dietary plan filled with many new abilities.
  • Complete bounties for uncle(s) Frank and Stein, while defeating Transylvania's mythical creatures and reap the rewards to continue sowing.
  • Prevail over every metaphorical pickle Voltaire may find himself in or risk the temptation of his bloodlust munching on a neck or two.
  • Don't sweat it. There is always a chance to try dieting again, this time with new knowledge and abilities!
