straka.studio, SUPERHOT PRESENTS and Arts Council have released a demo for their upcoming island-shifting action-roguelike Loot River. Slated for a release next year on PC, Loot River lets players journey down an otherworldly river in search of knowledge and loot.
Set in a series of procedurally-generated labyrinths, Loot River is a dungeon-crawling action-roguelike that combines the tense, real-time combat and dark fantasy stylings of Dark Souls with the spatial block-shifting puzzles of Tetris.
The demo allows players to play through the tutorial and two shorter levels. While the full game will be procedurally-generated, this demo is locked to one seed. As such, it will give players a taste of the game’s isle-shifting mechanic and combat system.
Miro Straka said:
“Loot River won’t be out until 2022, but I wanted to give players a chance to check out what makes it such a unique spin on the roguelike genre ahead of time. The full game will have loads more biomes, bosses, monsters, upgrades, and procedurally-generated dungeons. We’d love to hear people’s feedback on it now, to ensure that it’s as polished as possible when it launches.”
