Back on April 1st, Grimorio of Games announced a “new” game: Whispike Survivors: Sword of the Necromancer, a spin-off of the Sword of the Necromancer series that blends horde survivor and farming simulator gameplay. Thought it was an April’s Fools joke? Wrong! The game is pretty real, and it’s releasing “soon” in Europe and North America.
Here’s a trailer:
In Whispike Survivors: Sword of the Necromancer, you control a monster and make it fight other monsters to make it the strongest. However, only “adult” monsters can fight, which means you have to wait and take care of your farm until they grow. You can also plants seeds in neighbouring slots to get hybrids.
Here’s some details and some screenshots:
Cultivate the strongest monster in this horde survivor farming game! Fight against waves of creatures to beef up your Whispike and use its seeds to create even stronger hybrids!
In this game you will control one of Sword of the Necromancer’s monsters and make it fight other critters to make it the strongest! Were you defeated? Don’t worry! You can take your last monster’s seed, plant it and get it back.
Only “adult” Whispikes are eligible to fight, so you will have to wait and take care of your farm until they grow (or play with a default one in the meantime). Also, you might not get exactly what you expect: by planting seeds in neighboring slots you can get hybrids that combine the original seeds’ attributes!
- Defeat hordes of enemies to make your Whispike stronger.
- Use the seeds that Whispikes drop when dying to grow them in your Whispike farm and make even stronger hybrids!
- Turn your foes into manure to accelerate the Whispike’s growth!
Whispike Survivors: Sword of the Necromancer (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet, but is coming “soon”!
