Loop Hero is free on the Epic Games Store now

We got caught in a lot of video game time loops this year, but my absolute favorite was Loop Hero. I never thought an Autobattle RPG would hook me like it did, but I spent hours helping out a tiny knight circle in what was a seemingly endless void, and had an amazing time doing it. . If you didn’t have a chance to play it earlier this year, it’s now free on the Epic Games Store as of yesterday. I heartily encourage you to choose it, it is one of our favorite games of 2021.

Loop Hero is an autobattling, card-based roguelike with an aesthetic of an 80s PC RPG. Your goal is to help a small character defeat a series of bosses who have seemingly turned the world into a vast void, and you do so, laying out pieces of landscape, fighting monsters, And collect loot as you go round and round a loop.

It’s incredibly high, the kind of game that had me saying, ‘Ah, go ahead, just one more loop,’ over and over again. Steve Hogarty also enjoyed it in his Loop Hero review, praising its strategic freedom and ability to keep you on your toes.

“A game about running in circles, Loop Hero has every right to feel pointless, but the opposite is true,” he wrote. “There’s something very rewarding about repeatedly finding yourself back where you started, gone absolutely nowhere and done nothing but a slightly better pair of shoes when you set off. . Loop Hero is an odd mix of hands-off roleplaying and light card based strategy. It’s a casual, compulsive thing to do.”

If you want to read more, earlier this year Cat Bailey explored how Loop Hero taps into the darkest parts of RPG history, and Brad Lang spoke to developers Four Quarters about how Loop Hero’s quirks came to be. The impossible mishmash of ideas came into existence.

Or you can see in person what the fuss is about and head over to the Epic Games Store to claim it for free now. You have until 4PM GMT tomorrow to add it to your library. Epic is offering one free game every day for 15 days during the holiday period, and every day at 4 PM when the new one becomes available.
