Theorycraft Games, an independent studio founded in 2020 by former studio leads from Riot Games, Bungie, and Blizzard Entertainment, is making waves in the gaming industry.
With a team of experienced developers who have worked on iconic titles like League of Legends, VALORANT, Overwatch, Halo, Destiny, and Apex Legends, Theorycraft Games is set to deliver a unique gaming experience with their first title, “Project Loki.”
Playtesters have described it as a blend of League of Legends, Apex Legends, and Super Smash Bros. In this article, we’ll dive into the details of Project Loki, the highly anticipated game of Theorycraft Games.
Project Loki: A Genre Mashup
On June 28, Theorycraft Games surprised the MOBA community by announcing Project Loki, a four-on-four “squad-based hero battleground” that combines traditional League gameplay with distinctive shooting mechanics.
“Project Loki” is the exciting first project from Theorycraft Games. The game aims to combine elements from different genres, resulting in a unique and immersive experience. It blends squad-based hero gameplay with dynamic battles in a massive combat sandbox.
The team envisions “Project Loki” as a game where players can spend tens of thousands of hours exploring and enjoying its depth. Early playtesters have compared the game to a mix of League of Legends, Apex Legends, and Super Smash Bros, which is no surprise given the developers’ background in creating these popular titles.
