You might remember the name OrangePixel, the developers behind the awesome side-scrolling shooter game Gunslugs. Well we’ve waited with baited breath and they have finally announced September 12, 2013 as the official release date of their upcoming game Heroes of Loot. Never heard of it? Well read more to find out!
Based on what we’ve seen so far, we can tell you that Heroes of Loot is an arcade style rogue-like game. You get to choose four different characters, each with their own special skills and abilities. As you progress through the different floor levels you get to fight harder enemies and earn more loot. Based on OrangePixel’s twitter stream, we’ve also learned that there will be some pretty awesome boss fights too! Personally I spent many a quarter on Gauntlet so I’m sure that I’ll spend countless hours on Heroes of Loot. We asked Pascal, lead developer of OrangePixel, a couple questions regarding the game.
Why did you decide to go with a dungeon-crawler type game?
I’ve always wanted to make one, and made a lot of prototypes, but none of those were “right”. This time everything just came together and it resulted in Heroes of Loot 🙂
