Loot River launches

SUPERHOT PRESENTS and straka.studio have announced their puzzle-driven action-roguelite Loot River launches in May 2022.

Loot River launches on May 3rd for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

As covered in our previous reportLoot River is a dungeon crawling action-roguelite with puzzle elements. Players will traverse a ruined landscape floating on a dangerous river, and can use a mysterious artifact to shift the ground beneath them. This landscape-altering mechanic forms the basis of the game’s puzzles, allowing players to connect Tetris-like blocks of floor to explore further and exploit during combat.

Of course, players will be able to fight enemies with more conventional means as well. Scavenge for loot to acquire powerful weapons and armor, and learn new spells and abilities.

Here’s a trailer confirming Loot River launches next month:
