SUPERHOT PRESENTS the self-proclaimed “Dark Souls meets Tetris” roguelike with Loot River today for PC and Xbox

From Press Release:

Nová Dubnica, Slovakia – May 3rd, 2022 –, with the support of SUPERHOT PRESENTS, today releases their anticipated ‘Dark Souls meets Tetris’ action roguelike, Loot River, on PC and Xbox. The game is available now on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, and from 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5pm BST / 6pm CET on Steam, where it is officially Steam Deck verified. Loot River is available to buy for $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99, with a 10% discount at launch.

Head off on a journey into the labyrinthine procedurally-generated waterways of Loot River to discover a rich combat system, a varied bestiary of cursed enemies and a bounty of build-changing weapons, spells and other loot. You will find yourself exploring a rich world where wandering nomads, drawn by shards of an unholy relic, have found themselves stuck 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 travelers. No two journeys are ever the same as countless lost souls float through the Loot River.

In Loot River, players are able to harness the power of the Relic to shift the ground beneath them, sliding around on the floating pieces of ruined landscapes. These Tetris-like blocks can be slotted together to solve spatial exploration puzzles and employed creatively as a tool in combat to manipulate enemies and control the space on which your battles take place. Venturing through these endless catacombs, players will encounter horrifying beasts, lost travelers, and epic bosses.

As players explore the ruined waterways of Loot River, they can discover a wealth of new weapons, gear, spells and unholy knowledge: swords that thrust you forward towards enemies; axes that shoot projectiles; elemental enchantments; spells; armour and charms that imbue you with unique abilities. Combining these to create powerful and surprising synergies is crucial in helping you get further with each run.’s recent developer walkthrough gives you a tantalising taste of the possibilities these combinations can offer.

“I’m thrilled that Loot River is finally available on Xbox and PC today,” said creative director Miro Straka. “I’m really excited to see which of the game’s many secrets players are able to uncover and what kind of creative builds they come up with to help them take on the challenging procedurally-generated dungeons and tough bosses we’ve created to test their skills!”
