Backpack Hero latest game update is a Satchel for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the continuous development effort of Jaspel. Which is currently available on Steam Early Access.

Backpack Hero, the inventory management roguelike, is expanding its roster of characters as part of its new major game update! The latest addition to the team is Satchel. Out now on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. A clever robin capable of creating bags with multiple different pockets. All due to gain an inventory advantage. Players jumping into dungeons will also find new items and game modes. Additionally, players can now take advantage of the newly added Forge system. This allows them to vastly improve their kits…for a price.

Backpack Hero is a unique take on the roguelike genre. Players are tasked with venturing through dungeons, taking out enemies, and collecting loot. These heroes have magic backpacks, but they don’t have infinite inventory space. So players must choose their loot carefully. Due to fit everything they might need for the journey ahead.

Not only do players have to worry about fitting weapons, health, and more into their packs. But placement of these items is a key importance. A misplaced item might mean dead weight in a pack as every space is vital. Some items placed adjacent to one another can boost their effects. Other items may require empty spaces around them. Player’s backpack organizational skills could make all the difference. Backpack Hero also has players juggling status effects of both their own items and the enemy’s. Certain weapons might give an enemy poison or slowness. But don’t think that your foes don’t know the same tricks.

Strategy of all kinds is vital for this adventure. Backpack Hero’s battles are turn-based so players will have to brace for a few blows in between each of their turns. Use of weapons, potions, food, and armor will be the best way to stay safe. Since you will be facing tough encounters. Dungeons may be scary but these plucky little heroes are ready to take on the fight.

Features Include:

  • Hundreds of Items: Each item has its own unique effect. Depending on where you place it in your backpack, can be powerful when used in the Backpack Hero arrangement.
  • Multiple unique characters: Adventure through the dungeons as Purse the Packrat, Tote the Toad, or CR-8 the Robot.
  • 40+ Enemies to Battle: Test your mettle and your organizing skills against powerful enemies. Ranging from small to large to everything in between.
  • Endless Dungeons to Explore: Randomly generated dungeons mean that no playthrough will be like the last.

Backpack Hero is available now on Steam Early Access. The game update is also live on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Priced at $16.99 USD / £13.49 / 13,99€.
