Backpack Hero is basically a packrat’s dream game.
You could probably safely say that you never thought that there would be a game about inventory management. Then along comes Backpack Hero.
Yes, this roguelike will have you jump into dungeons and collect epic loot, but you’ll also need to keep it organized. That’s actually the key to playing the game effectively.
“Players take on the role of a brave adventurer exploring vast dungeons, picking up piles of loot, and taking on dangerous foes with only what they can fit in their backpacks. Thankfully these heroes are equipped with an impressive skill – inventory management,” explains indie developer Jaspel.
“Depending on where players put items in their backpacks, placement can alter its effectiveness. Some items when placed adjacent to pieces of armor will boost the amount of shield players receive from that armor. Other items gain added bonuses when they have empty spaces below or above them,” they add.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Jaspel is getting ready to send their unique roguelike into Early Access. Players can pick up the game with new features including two new characters, a handful of cool new items (there are hundreds of items overall), weapons, and more.
Backpack Hero is coming to Steam Early Access on August 15.
