The first major update to the charming micro-RPG Loop Hero is here and will finally allow you to save your progress in the middle of a race.
Launched on Steam earlier this week, Update 1.1 comes with several quality of life fixes to better manage your recursive roguelike races. In addition to the ability to save at half speed, a new acceleration option allows you to fast forward at 4x speed and play battles at a fast speed of 2.5x.
This week’s update also allows you to escape the delicate fights by exchanging 30% of your resources. Better tools for managing inventory and roofing have been added, along with three new tiles and two new bad ones.
Evan correctly enjoyed the Four Quarters dungeon tracker, calling it "the rehydrated essence of a dozen old, poorly remembered games" in his Loop Hero Review.
"Loop Hero is the concentrated experience of seeing numbers grow in a video game, but at the moment it's charming. It's a nice format and perhaps Loop Hero's biggest success point is that it makes a home in this middle ground between seeing, planning and acting. "
