Loop Hero is an absolute delight – a genre-wide mashup of RPG games, strategy games, card games, roguelikes and … idle games? It’s hard to describe in a single sentence, but its addicting loop has caught on with gamers thanks to an extensive demo and is becoming a major indie breakout on Steam.
Just 24 hours after its release, developer Four Quarters announced that Loop Hero has already attracted over 150,000 players. It currently hovers at number two on Steam’s top seller list, just behind the incredibly popular Valheim. The game has hit 38,764 concurrent players as demonstrated by SteamDB, making it one of the most popular games on the platform – right between Civ 6 and Path of Exile.
It’s also easy to see why. With Loop Hero you place both the monsters and the rewards that are waiting for a little RPG hero who moves alone on a short loop. Each round gets more terrifying over time, promising better treasures from more dangerous monsters the further you go – and you are in control of the entire dungeon.
As Ian notes in our Loop Hero review, it’s a bit like playing a dungeon master for yourself, and the game is perfectly coordinated to keep you on your way to the next goal. There’s nothing like it and it’s well worth checking out.
Our team is overwhelmed by the response to Loop Hero and cannot thank our new community enough – already over 150,000 players!
