How the 'Loop Hero' Devs Pitched a Hit Game That's Impossible to Describe

Loop Hero, the game about watching a character walk in a loop and fight a slate of increasingly difficult monsters, has been one of 2021's unexpected success stories. The first version of what would eventually become Loop Hero was an experiment born out of a game jam, an entry into the 2019 Ludum Dare jam, but it had one big problem: it didn't work.

Wow I’m surprised at how close it looks to the original, they really nailed the art style from the start. Also is that a handgun in the old screenshots? I haven’t beaten the game yet but now I’m interested to see if that is still a thing you can get considering I had no expectations of it showing up prior lol
