Retro-themed Kingdom of Loot goes into early access

Are you a sucker for pixel art and retro JRPGs? Then here’s a nice little treat for you: Kingdom of Loot will launch tomorrow in early access on Steam. It’s expected to stay in early access for the next two-and-a-half years while development continues.

Self-described as “the love child of Secret of Mana and Diablo,” the ARPG Kingdom of Loot marries the 16-bit era to the MMORPG genre… and it actually looks pretty cute and fun. It’s divided up into social town hubs, an open world map, and private instances. Players will take up arms to do some Zelda-style hack-and-slashing while going on quests and hanging out with their guilds.

Kingdom of Loot seeks to bring back the timeless feel of these classics while answering the question: How would they have been if based in a global mass multiplayer system?” the team describes. “An immersive persistent world to explore, tons of loot to collect, new friendships to forge and adventures to live and strongly focuses on collecting, crafting and sharing in-game loot. You decide whether doing it on your own, with a small group of friends, a guild or joining hundreds of other players on your quest for epic gear.”

I applaud creating MMOs for mobile. I’m sorry to say I think the graphics are beyond “dated”. AdventureQuest 3D is a way more progressive effort.

I think it looks great & I’ll be buying this tomorrow to play while I fish/process in BDO.

Whether you meant it sarcastic or not, there is no need for hazing of either one of these awesome looking games! Both look cute, and that’s the intention! ;P

Is it scary because he’s allergic to bee stings?

It looks cute. I wonder if new gear changes the look of your sprites?

The video was a horrible promotion piece. So boring.

It’s weird this is the trailer they went with, the ones on the store page looked somewhat reasonable. At least a solid bee minus.

Admittedly it was indeed a terrible video posted here, a dev using godmode, and doing nothing but walking around and insta-killing a bee. I hate to bee the sort of person who bee-littles people’s work, especially since it can cause devs bee-rievment, but they could have put more effort into it.

Do you think Steam’s promotional rules are already applying? (Only ingame footage allowed)

Reader
John Mclain

Nobody actually follows those rules on steam except maybe some front-page high profile games, most indy/smaller games still use totally fake videos, heroes and generals still uses 100% fake video footage and even fake screenshots after being told to take them down by steam directly, they never did.
