Here is a description of the game from developer eBrain Studio:

In Loopmancer, private eye Xiang Zixu is murdered while investigating the vanishing of a famous journalist. As Xiang awakens in his bed on the morning of his death, he discovers time resets every time he bites the dust. Kill, die, and enact revenge in an oppressive Far East cyberpunk world to uncover the connections between your case, your murder and your limitless resurrection. Do you have what it takes to become a Loopmancer?

Annihilate bionic cyborgs, deformed mutants, and Wei Long’s army of street level gangsters in slow-motion. Electrify the city’s underbelly with your vast array of cybernetic enhancements or dismember opera mask-wearing grunts with the full force of your high-tech armory. Soak neon-lit streets with the blood of the future’s most notorious criminals.

Loopmancer launches on July 13 for PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
