FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Nová Dubnica, Slovakia - April 13th, 2022 - straka.studio, with the support of SUPERHOT PRESENTS, have today released a new developer walkthrough video for their anticipated ‘Dark Souls meets Tetris’ action roguelike Loot River, coming to PC and Xbox this year. The video gives players a look at the weapons and loot that they can find while exploring the game’s fantasy-inspired procedurally-generated labyrinths, and gives some tantalising examples of how they can be combined to create fun and powerful builds. You’ll need them if you are to survive unforgiving dungeons populated with bestial abominations!


In Loot River, players are able to harness the power of the Relic to shift the ground beneath them, sliding around on the floating pieces of ruined landscapes. These Tetris-like blocks can be slotted together to solve spatial exploration puzzles and employed creatively as a tool in combat to manipulate enemies and control the space on which your battles take place. As players venture through these endless catacombs, they’ll encounter a cursed array of tough enemies, lost travelers, and epic bosses. The wealth of new weapons, gear and unholy knowledge you can unearth for permanent upgrades will be crucial to help you get further with each run.


Drawn to shards of an unholy relic, wandering nomads have found themselves in a perpetual cycle of life and death, losing their sanity as they journey through endless parallel realities, devouring each other to absorb the knowledge of their fellow travelers. No two journeys are ever the same as countless lost souls float through the Loot River.


“The enthusiasm and interest everyone has shown towards Loot River since we announced it has been incredible,” said creative director, Miro Straka. “We wanted to reward that by giving players a closer look at the game’s weapons and loot with this new video. I can’t wait to be able to give you more information soon on when you can finally get your hands on this gear yourself on Xbox and PC!”

About SUPERHOT PRESENTS
SUPERHOT PRESENTS is an indie game funding initiative created by the team that made SUPERHOT. After making a runaway success through sheer gumption and foolhardiness, the studio now aims to give other foolhardy, upstart indies a hand. Shipping a game without a publisher or investors is daunting and can feel like a huge leap of faith, so the SUPERHOT team aims to make that jump a little less scary for indie developers.
