As elevator pitches go, “Think about if Diablo and Tetris had a child” is about as efficient as I can think about. On the very least it is onerous to think about what a recreation like that might even appear like, so it is best to watch the clip of Loot River from the Summer time Sport Fest above.
Straka Studios’ Loot River is roguelike dungeon crawler, however it’s additionally a dungeon shifter. There are block-based puzzles all through, however as an alternative of transferring blocks out of your method you truly trip them round. You’ll be able to rearrange them to realize entry to new areas, velocity round on them to keep away from being swarmed by mobs, and even use them to smash enemies into paste as you trip them additional down the Loot River.
It isn’t that block driving is your solely transfer. Your character additionally has a reasonably lethal flaming sword. However I get the impression that you could simply be overwhelmed by mobs of monsters, so avoiding them at instances could also be a key to success. That is the place some fast and intelligent block driving is useful. It is like fixing a puzzle when you’re standing on it.
Ranges are a mix of procedural era and hand-crafted components to maintain the world feeling completely different however nonetheless logical between runs. And you will not simply discover monsters in Loot River, however pals, retailers, and different adventurers who might help you unlock everlasting upgrades. And, in fact, there are main bossfights to beat. Loot River would not have a launch date but, so there’s nonetheless time to get some Tetris observe in earlier than it launches.
