Dungeon crawler Loot River is like ‘Diablo and Tetris had a baby’

As elevator pitches go, “Imagine if Diablo and Tetris had a baby” is about as effective as I can imagine. At the very least it’s hard to imagine what a game like that would even look like, so you should watch the clip of Loot River from the Summer Game Fest above.

Straka Studios’ Loot River is roguelike dungeon crawler, but it’s also a dungeon shifter. There are block-based puzzles throughout, but instead of moving blocks out of your way you actually ride them around. You can rearrange them to gain access to new areas, speed around on them to avoid being swarmed by mobs, and even use them to smash enemies into paste as you ride them further down the Loot River.
