What is Looterkings about?
Looterkings is a procedural dungeon crawler, in which you wont fight alone and you wont be the good guy. Play together with up to 3 friends and take control of the most wretched goblin horde ever to have crawled out of the caves deep beneath the earth . These caves dont hold enough loot any more, so youre going to fight your way up. The higher you get, the more loot you will find, eventually ravaging the hallowed halls of the Elven Queen.
Bonding a successful goblin horde works best by gathering your friends to share this adventure. We made Looterkings an up to four-player online coop game, because we think procedural dungeon crawling is most fun with fellow looters supporting you and fighting with you side by side.
But most importantly, we are absolutely passionate about real coop gameplay that is not „just“ individual hacking and slashing, which led to the ability of stacking: each goblin has a special god-ability, which he can share with a fellow goblin by carrying his fellow on his shoulders. Hereby the players will be able to share their buffs of the god-abilities they possess and combine strengths for a short period of time.
When all goblins of a horde die, they will have to start over again from the first level. However, to maintain replayability, the level arrangement, the enemies and the rooms themselves will vary each time playing a level. Each level will provide the players with a possibility to upgrade their weapons and armor at a goblin merchant. The items available at the merchant however will be depending on the overall player level, which goes up by collecting XP dropped by defeated monsters.
We give special attention to distinct graphics and animations. No art in this game is an overused asset-store item or a generic mecanim-animation. Just catch a glimpse at the videos and screenshots – we really want to realize a unique experience and atmosphere for Looterkings based on stunning visuals, sound effects and music. Developed with Unity 5 Engine.
After I think 16 hours? Playing and playing 4 times I can say: It's still fun! And I'm not saying that because of Gronkh, Sarazar and Rumpel. But you also have to make it clear that it is only 'really' fun with friends. It's fun to blow each other's brains out and that's what this game is all about. Once you get it out, the levels go pretty good. But you also need capable teammates. The melee weapons definitely need a boost, because at the moment you can only play this with bows and sticks, at least in my experience. Conclusion: buy recommendation! Lasting fun is offered with friends and the level system is also in order. Here and there a few little bugs (got caught by a bug and was then stuck in the wall) are short annoying, but don't diminish the game fun. What I would especially like to emphasize is that, despite alpha, it is already a playable game. Just take Dead by Daylight as an example. Sometimes you wait an hour for a lobby there, despite 20, 000? players. In addition, there are simply considerably fewer bugs here. I hope the game will be further developed. love, here's your cheesecake!
