The latest freebie that the Epic Games Store is gifting as part of its 15 Days of Free Games promotion is Loop Hero, an indie title developed by Russian studio Four Quarters.
Published by Devolver Digital, Loop Hero is a deck-building game with a classic pixel-art style in which players can manipulate the randomly generated world around them through the use of cards. The title will be available for free on the Epic Games Store until tomorrow (12/21/21) at 11:00 a.m. (EST).
“The Lich has thrown the world into a timeless loop and plunged its inhabitants into never ending chaos,” reads a description for the game.
“Wield an expanding deck of mystical cards to place enemies, buildings, and terrain along each unique expedition loop for the brave hero. Recover and equip powerful loot for each class of hero for their battles and expand the survivors’ camp to reinforce each adventure through the loop. Unlock new classes, new cards, and devious guardians on your quest to shatter the endless cycle of despair.”
Loop Hero was one of the five nominees for The Game Awards 2021’s Best Independent Game category, but it lost out to Kena: Bridge of Spirits, a PlayStation and Epic Games Store exclusive. Developer Four Quarters has also been responsible for Please, Don’t Touch Anything, a game about “bathroom breaks, screwdrivers and nuclear explosions.”
