Brotato Vampire Survivors inspired action-roguelike official key art

Much like Vampire Survivors from which it takes a great deal of inspiration, Brotato is a ridiculously customizable and equally addictive action roguelite. You'll start off each run with a fairly generic set of gear, and by the time you're done you'll not only have additional arms sprouting from your body, but each of those arms will be armed with some kind of absurdly overpowered (or just absurd in general) weapon that can rip and tear through the enemy hordes.

The big difference between the two games is that Brotato focuses a bit more on presenting the players with proper challenges while Vampire Survivors is all about the non-stop power trip. As such, Brotato not only comes with multiple difficulty settings to choose from, but also an additional set of sliders that you can use to fine-tune the settings in either direction. So if even you get good at it, you can still amp things up to the point where the fate of each run will rest at the knife's edge.

When it comes to the actual gameplay, it's all about smashing hordes of enemies to gather resources, using said resources to unlock new upgrades and weapons, and then utilizing those new toys to blast apart even more numerous and dangerous enemies. A fairly simple gameplay loop, especially when you can let game do all of the aiming for you, but also one that's a whole lot of fun!

Rather than continue to babble on, allow me to share with you the launch trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of just what all of this looks like in action, as well as what Brotato is even trying to do. Have a peek:

As for how replayable Brotato truly is, that I'm afraid I don't exactly know. What I can tell you is that despite playing it for around ten hours I'm still finding new builds and ideas to mess around with, and considering it's only a 4€ game, that's already quite solid in my book.

Whatever your thoughts on the matter may be, you can learn more about Brotato and its flavor of starchy madness over at Steam. Enjoy!
