Loopmancer is a 3D horizontal roguelite action game with realistic graphics that takes place in a cyberpunk universe.

Players play as a detective who comes back to life after an unexpected death, and battle in this lifelike and futuristic city of the east.

Year 2046 / Dragon City

Neuro-comp interfaces, bionic prosthetics and nano-biotechnology have all become commonplace. Society is highly developed, but the gap between the haves and the have nots has only grown larger.

Xiang Zixu, a brilliant private eye, is killed while investigating the disappearance of a famous female journalist. Immediately after his death, he wakes up with a start in his apartment bedroom. Before he can process what happened, his phone rings and his colleague at the agency tells him of a new case: the disappearance of a famous female journalist.

Developed with the UE4 engine, Loopmancer depicts an eastern cityscape with cyberpunk aesthetics and features 7 finely-crafted large stages, including: Dragon Town, which comes alive with holiday spirit in the evening; the bleak and gloomy Shuigou Village; the luxurious Tang Dynasty Hotel; the maritime Bionic Beings' Training Base; and the Biotech Company...

Developer eBrain Studio announced that Loopmancer will launch July 13 on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store!

An updated free Steam demo is available today as part of the Steam Next Fest celebration, which runs until June 20. Cut up opera mask-wearing thugs - including the flamboyant Wei Long - and complete the demo to unlock rewards.

Demo players will come across a variety of gameplay improvements on their return trip to Dragon City, including the ability to start new deathloops from Longxi Town. Protagonist Xiang’s lethal arsenal has been expanded to feature a variety of badass, never-before-seen weapons and superkills. New enemy groups - the Black Tiger Corps and Kouga Industry Ninjas - have joined the fray. Players can also enjoy a number of technical improvements like enhanced graphics, animation optimizations, integration of Nvidia RTX and NIS, and more.

Unlock new weapons and abilities through endless reincarnations to solidify and enhance your fighting skills. Unlock over 100 weapons, cast skills with prosthetic limb chips, and use tech items to defeat the enemy.

Face over 30 enemies with unique behavior patterns: vicious gangsters, well-equipped mercs, crazy mutants whose neuro-comp interfaces have been hacked, highly trained bionics, etc. The list goes on, and none of them will be easy to take down.

Certain areas will change at random after each life loop. Select your favorite battle mode and investigate the ultimate truth.

After each death, Xiang Zixu will awaken in his apartment and begin a new loop. As the story progresses, reviewing what seemed like the correct choice in the past may lead to a different conclusion.

Every decision you make will alter the fates of in-game characters and rewrite your ending.

Are you ready to initiate a new loop?

Loopmancer is coming to PC (Steam) on July 13, 2022, followed by Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PS4 at a later time.
