Loot River Pieces Together Developer Walkthrough Trailer
During the Day of the Devs showcase, developer straka.studio released a new trailer for its upcoming roguelike Loot River, combining fast-paced action with platform-shifting puzzles. The four-minute video shows the action combat, which is inspired by the likes of Dark Souls as well as the spatial thinking of a Tetris game in motion.
As players advance through procedurally generated levels, they must use the power granted by the Relic to move block-shaped pieces of the floating ruin floor in any direction they wish. This allows for strategic approaches to combat, letting players choose which enemies to target, split up groups of enemies, or build bridges to completely avoid battles altogether. Loot River is in development for PC and Xbox One.
