Heroes of Loot Coming to PS Vita on September 22nd

Hi everyone, Tj’ièn here from Abstraction Games. I’m really excited to tell you about Heroes of Loot today, a fun little game by Orange Pixel, Dutch indie developer extraordinaire.

Heroes of Loot is a new take on the classic Gauntlet — not the remake, but the classic 80’s version. It’s a dungeon crawler open to all sorts of players, with the deep statistical stuff of roguelikes stripped out and replaced with arcade shooting.

Orange Pixel’s goal was to create something that had the old feeling of the 8-bit classic but was updated with various current design concepts and tricks, including procedurally generated content, random quests, and just a lot of non-serious action.

Another great thing about Heroes of Loot is that the game keeps on giving, even when you reach level 30 or 40 — players will still discover new things and run into monsters that they haven’t seen before.

Heroes of Loot will drop on PS Vita on September 22nd, so just a few more nights before you’ll find yourself in the middle of hordes of ghosts, skulls, cyclops, critters, and much more. Try to survive using quick reflexes, level up to improve your weapon, and — if you have time — complete some quests for extra loot and upgrades.

One last tip: never, ever, rush into a steaming, puffing, fire-spitting Minotaur… run away!

  • This is not my cup of tea, but I’m glad to see that the Vita is still getting some kind of love…

  • I’ve been eyeing at HoL on my phone for a while, but having it with real controls is a no brainer. Price?

  • I was kind of hoping to pass this up, but it looks too fun. Ugh, what am I going to delete off the memory card…

  • As a fan of Rogue-Likes and the PS Vita, this looks right up my alley.
    Will co-op be included? And will there be PlayStation TV support?

    Also, that trailer was hilarious. Hope the game is just as charming!

  • I’m always down for moar loot.

  • Neat!

  • Looks like alot of fun! What’s the price of the game though? :)

  • Awesome! This game is on a short list I’ve been keeping of Vita games I really want. Does it have ad hoc support?

  • Looks like a fun lil game. If Sony showed any sign that the Vita wasn’t about to disappear and would still be improved upon, I would gladly buy one. Oh, and price the memory cards at a fair market price.

    • if you and others don’t support this or other games (or even a memory card), how will Sony know that you want the Vita to succeed/continue? if you haven’t noticed by now, most votes are cast with your wallet (noticed how there’s little hope in the U.S. for Vita, yet we import Japanese games and support their market?).

    • lol, sorry my response came out like moderate fanboyism.

  • Cool. Size? kind of running low on space on my memory card and it has started determining what I get these days. Since a large game will require me to pay for an overly expensive memory card.


  • Looks fun! Does the game support multiplayer, or PSTV (or perhaps both? :-)

  • Thanks for supporting the vita :).

  • I think this looks fun. I am curious to see what EXP gets you. Just more health/attack? Any skill tree or anything? How much will it cost? PSTV support?

    I love action RPG games. PLUS this looks like it is really clever and funny. :) I am in. :)

  • Reminds me of Hammerwatch (which I really wanted to be ported to Vita). So I guess this will scratch that itch.

  • When is the United States going to get the 64 GB memory card? No, I don’t want to import.

    • You don’t have to “import” necessarily. They are available on Amazon and other online retailers. I do agree though, it is extremely frustrating we still do not have easy access to them and they have yet to have a price cut. Apparently Sony doesn’t want to sell them that much.

  • Glad it’s finally here!! I really liked it on mobile but never got around to finishing it. Can’t wait to play it with the Vita’s glorious physical controls!! Watch out loot! I’m coming to get ya!!! MUAH AHAHAhaha!!!

  • Is there any differences between this and the mobile versions?
