Loop hero looks like a deck-based roguelike

Loop Hero is a nifty roguelike game where you strategically place hero enemies from your hand. Well, before anyone notices me about calling it roguelike, it has randomized adventures, equipment, dying heroes, and an “infinite loop” that you need to get out of. The deck build bit is why I’m personally more interested in it for some reason than Rogue’s literal riffs. It will arrive sometime in 2021 due to your randomized dungeon desires.

“We strategically place buildings, terrain, and enemy cards along each loop to create our own dangerous paths,” says Four Quarters. “Find the balance between the cards and increase your chances of survival while recovering valuable loot and resources from the camp.”

If I understand correctly, you are playing Trump, which can be deadly to your hero, and you are trying to organize and order so that you can overcome the challenges without being overwhelmed. It sounds pretty neat. This is a public trailer to scrutinize for yourself.

Manage your deck of cards, spend time in between running upgrades to your survivor camp, and “get valuable reinforcements every time the loop completes along the expedition path.” It seems that the battle is not a turn system or real time, but an automatic fighter system. You can also feel it over and over on the official website by scrolling down the page over and over in the sample loop. This is also great! It shows some dialogue and combat, but not a bit of deck building and gear management.

Loop Hero was born in 2019 as a Ludum Dare game jam game. This is now a playable alpha version that can still be found on Itch.

The final version of Loop Hero is scheduled for 2021. Until then, you can find it on Steam’s wishlist.
