Straka.studio has 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.
The video (below) gives some examples of how these items can be combined to create fun and powerful builds. Loot River features fantasy-inspired procedurally-generated labyrinths. You’ll need powerful weapons 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. You can slide around on the floating pieces of ruined landscapes. These Tetris-like blocks can be slotted together to solve spatial exploration puzzles, or employed creatively as a tool in combat. 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 enemies, travellers, and bosses. The wealth of new weapons, gear and unholy knowledge you can unearth for permanent upgrades will be crucial to help you get further in each run.
“The enthusiasm and interest everyone has shown towards Loot River since we announced it has been incredible,Miro Straka, Creative Director
“We wanted to reward that by giving players a closer look at the game’s weapons and loot. 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!”

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 travellers. No two journeys are ever the same as countless lost souls float through the Loot River.
Loot River will launch later this year on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The game has already been confirmed to release on Xbox Game Pass. Are you excited for Loot River? Let us know in the comments below!
