If you’re playing Loop Hero and need to take a break, you’re probably wondering how to save during a loop. Not everyone wants to end their run by dying or retreating back to the camp, especially if they’re doing really well. The developer is currently working on a solution for this, so we’ve got what you can do in the meantime.
How to Save in Loop Hero
As mentioned above, isn’t a solution for saving during a loop yet. However, the developer has posted on the Steam discussions that they’re working on a saving system currently. Since not everyone always has the time to dedicate to long loops, it’s no surprise people started posting about it. Until a save feature is added, you can still retreat for resources as mentioned in our tips and tricks here. If you’re at a campfire, you’ll leave with 100% of your resources from that run. Retreating is done by pressing the small button of a person running at the bottom right corner.
While roguelike games often revolve around permanent death and a lack of saving, roguelites are the middle ground. Some fans of Loop Hero have suggested an auto-save system for every time you complete a loop reaching the campfire.
If the developer is concerned about it being abused, a save and quit system would work still well here. Essentially, you can only save your loop upon quitting. This makes it more difficult for people to reload saves after dying. Regardless of how the developer implements mid-loop saving, it benefits everyone. When and if a save system is added to Loop Hero, we’ll update this article to let everyone know.
For those who don’t own Loop Hero, you can still save your progress, but not for each loop as the article says. I just wanted to clarify in case you’re debating whether to buy the game or not. The meta progression takes place outside of each loop/run.
