Loop Hero is free on the Epic Games Store right now

This year had us stuck in many video game time loops, but one of my absolute favourites was Loop Hero. I never thought an autobattler RPG would hook me the way it did, but I spent hours upon hours helping a little knight circle a seemingly endless void, and had a wonderful time doing it. If you didn’t have a chance to play it earlier this year, it’s now free on the Epic Game Store until tomorrow. I heartily encourage you to pick this one up, it’s one of our favourite games of 2021.

Have You Played… Loop Hero?

Is it possible to say that one thing is more unique than another thing? Doesn’t sound right. Something’s either unique or it isn’t. But I’ll be damned if Loop Hero is one of the most unique games I’ve ever played. Watching your hero cycle endlessly around a closed loop, auto-battling ever-tougher enemies while you play tiles in and around the loop to help your hero “remember” their surroundings and grow in strength? Leave off a moment, please; my “intrigued” button needs a moment to recover. Read more

I’m sorry, but I don’t get Loop Hero

I went into Loop Hero with only two expectations: I’m probably going to like this given the rave reviews it received, and if there’s a hint of idle game here I’m all for it. I’d hoped it would be the sort of game I could leave to its own devices, you know, set some foundations, press play, and collect my rewards a few hours later. Nope, this wasn’t Loop Hero at all. I had to place things, and make difficult decisions, and keep tabs on stuff. Too demanding for me – just way too much. Not idle enough. Read more

Loop Hero looks like a nifty deck-based Rogue-like

Loop Hero is a nifty-looking Rogue-like game where you’ll strategically place enemies for your hero from your own hand of cards. Now, before anyone gets on me about calling it a Rogue-like, it’s got randomized adventures, gear, heroes that die, and an “infinite loop” that you’ll need to break out of. The deck-building bit is what somehow makes me personally more interested in it than more literal riffs on Rogue. It will arrive sometime in 2021 for your randomized dungeoning desires. (more…)
