Retro Strategy Game ‘Loop Hero’ Announced By Devolver (VIDEO)
The folks over at Devolver Digital have announced a new retro-esque title from developer FourQuarters. The title puts players in the titular ‘loop’ and tasks them with altering the course of said loop using an assortment of character classes, weapons, and cards.
“The Lich has thrown the world into a timeless loop and plunged its inhabitants into never ending chaos,” the game’s description reads. “Wield an expanding deck of mystical cards to place enemies, buildings, and terrain along each unique expedition loop for the brave hero. Recover and equip powerful loot for each class of hero for their battles and expand the survivors’ camp to reinforce each adventure through the loop. Unlock new classes, new cards, and devious guardians on your quest to shatter the endless cycle of despair.”
Here’s the breakdown of what you’ll have available to you within the game:
Infinite Adventure: Select from unlockable character classes and deck cards before setting out on each expedition along a randomly generated loop path. No expedition is ever the same as the ones before it.
Plan Your Struggle: Strategically place building, terrain, and enemy cards along each loop to create your own dangerous path. Find balance between the cards to increase your chances of survival while recovering valueable loot and resources for your camp.
Loot and Upgrade: Strike down menacing creatures, recover stronger loot to equip on the fly and unlock new perks along the way.
Expand Your Camp: Turn hard-earned resources into campsite upgrades and gain valueable reinforcements with each completed loop along the expedition path.
Save the Lost World: Overcome a series of unholy guardian bosses over a grand saga to save the world and break the time loop of the Lich!
Loop Hero is slated to release at some point next year for PC.
