BEIJING, CHINA - APRIL 21, 2022 - Developer eBrain Studio has announced that a free playable demo for the roguelite action-thriller LOOPMANCER is now available on PC via Steam. Enter a megacity underworld in the Far East as Xiang Zixu, a private detective investigating the vanishing of a famous reporter. Following a crucial lead, he is murdered, only to awaken in his bed. Xiang discovers that time resets when he dies, bringing him back to his apartment. What the hell is going on!?
From cyber ninjas to opera mask-wearing gangsters, LOOPMANCER will allow players to
mutilate a host of different enemy types
Kill, die and enact revenge in an infinite cycle to uncover the connections between your case, your murder and your limitless resurrection. Slice bionic cyborgs, deformed mutants, and street level gangsters. Unlock cybernetic enhancements, high-tech guns, and explosive abilities to perfect the art of slow-motion annihilation.
“You’re just a petty detective!” says Wei Long, LOOPMANCER’s flamboyant mob boss, when first confronting Xiang. “Put the word out. Whoever kills this guy gets a 500K reward!!”
In LOOPMANCER, players will explore seven massive cyberpunk levels, each with its own unique aesthetic and design. Avoid hidden traps and solve clever puzzles across bustling streets and chilling ghost towns. Every death is an opportunity to revisit one of these intricately designed levels - with different, randomly generated layouts to feed your adrenaline rush.
Blast away cybernetic scum across an array of intricately designed levels in LOOPMANCER
Make choices and investigate side paths in each level to unlock seven unique endings. Discover how each decision you make affects Xiang and the twisted lives of the people you meet. Do you have what it takes to become a LOOPMANCER?
LOOPMANCER’s free playable demo is now available on Steam. The game will launch on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store in 1H 2022.
The demo integrates NVIDIA DLSS for performance boosting. NVIDIA DLSS is an AI super resolution algorithm accelerated by Tensor Cores on GeForce RTX GPUs. It allows the game to render at 1080p, improving framerates. It also uses AI and game engine data to deliver the image quality of a native 4K output.
The full version of LOOPMANCER will include RT. Please stay tuned for more updates.
