Loopmancer is one of the promising action roguelike 3D platformer games that has managed to attract attention already. The game is being developed by eBrain Studio and will be released somewhere in 2022. That’s why we covered everything you should know in this preview article.
As you might have already noticed from the game’s name, Loopmancer has interesting gameplay where players play in a loop. The story will keep progressing, and each of your decisions on each loop can affect the course of the story.
We are expecting the Loopmancer to be released for the PC, Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 platforms. The best part about the game is that you can enjoy the demo on Steam right now. In this way, you can get an idea of what you may expect from the game. Needless to say, the cyberpunk universe of the game offers quite interesting mechanics and effects to players.
Loopmancer Story and Gameplay
You are going to be Xiang Zixu in Loopmancer. Zixu was a detective, and he was killed while he was tracking one of the underground crime lords in the city. After his death, he wakes up in his apartment. He doesn’t only live, but he also remembers what happened to him that day. You will be able to take advantage of the information you acquire during the loops and try to solve the cause of these mysterious loops.
One of the notable features of Loopmancer is its multiple ending options. For us, this is one of the great features that make Loopmancer unique. In this game, your decisions and actions have multiple outcomes. This means that you can make a different decision than in the previous loop each time and enjoy a different experience.
For example, in the demo, you will try to warn and inform your superiors about the events that are going to happen. Of course, the superiors will make fun of you at first, but you will find the optimum way to gradually make them believe you with each loop.
When it comes to fighting mechanics, we can easily say that melee lovers will like it. Your character can equip a wide range of melee weapons, from bar stools to swords. The game offers a fast-paced fighting experience with plenty of dashes, avoidances, slashes, and closing gaps.
Although the game takes place in a cyberpunk universe in 2046, the cyberpunk-style Eastern cities offer a totally unique visual feast. When we combine these with thirty unique enemies and their unique combat patterns, a fun game will be waiting for us with Loopmancer.
