Loop Hero Sells 500,000 One Week After Launch

Loop Hero 500 000 sold

Devolver Digital have announced developer Four Quarters’ rougelike strategy RPG Loop Hero has sold 500,000 copies one week after launch.

As previously reported, a mighty lich has destroyed the world, leaving nothing but a void. However, one young man and a small camp have survived, with his memory creating a looping path, and bits and pieces of the world around him. But is the Lich the only one behind the world’s devastation?

Rebuild the world with cards you find, and create reactions depending on what they are placed next to. Once you build up the world enough, the boss shall appear challenge you. Fail or win, the world is reset when you stop your adventure. You can also find equipment to power yourself up, and resources to build your camp for bonuses on future runs.

As part of the 500,000 strong-player announcement, Loop Hero has its own set of Steam trading cards. In addition, the developers are working on patches with  requested quality-of-life improvements.

These include saving during expeditions, new speed settings, and a deck of the traits players have gained from defeated bosses. Future updates will also bring new cards, transformations as they interact with each other, classes, and music.

Loop Hero is available now on Windows PC via Steam. In case you missed it, you can find our review here. We recommend it, and are currently having a giveaway of three copies of the game!

You can find the full rundown on Loop Hero (via Steam) below.

The Lich has thrown the world into a timeless loop and plunged its inhabitants into never ending chaos.
