The innovative new roguelite title known as Loop Hero, from Devolver Digital and indie developer Four Quarters, has sold over 500,000 copies in a week since its release on March 4, 2021. To celebrate the new milestone, the team is releasing Steam Trading Cards for their game, along with a teaser of future updates. You can check out the details below.
If you haven’t tried the game yet, Loop Hero mixes various elements of different genres into one unique experience. Players load into a procedurally generated map with a circular path which they “loop” around. The player controls their own experience by using cards to modify tiles. Cards can spawn monsters, grant buffs to your hero, and unlock additional bonuses. Monsters get more challenging after every loop you complete, so you’ll want to plan accordingly. There’s a boss on every level, which spawns after you play several cards to fill up the boss meter.
Not only is the game a massive success on Steam, but here are some other interesting stats: it has the fastest-selling soundtrack in Devolver Digital history, an average user playtime of 12 hours, and over 18 billion loops completed by its players.
Four Quarters teamed up with BardtheZombie on Twitter for a special series of Stream Trading Cards, which are now available.
