Publisher Superhot Presents and independent Slovak studio straka.studio have released their pixel roguelike action game Loot River with procedurally generated dungeons.
To mark the release, the developers presented a new trailer that shows the variety of Loot River locations and methods of moving around them.
In terms of gameplay, the new project by straka.studio combines intense real-time battles in a dark fantasy setting with block movement mechanics.
The authors themselves position Loot River as a hybrid of Dark Souls and Tetris, additionally equipped with a rich combat system. Separately, you can highlight the variability of enemies and 26 types of weapons with unique attacks.
Loot River is now available on PCsteam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. The project is also available on Game Pass. At the time of publishing the material, Loot River has accumulated 53 user reviews on Steam, 71% of which are positive.
The first players praise the project for expressive pixel graphics, an interesting idea with the movement of the protagonist and a large number of local puzzles.
Here is the combat system “broken hitboxes” and the inability to parry or dodge at the right time, as well as general glitches when playing animations were the main reasons for dissatisfaction.
