Backpack Hero is an inventory management roguelike where you collect rare items, organize your bag, and vanquish your foes!

Backpack Hero is a twist on your standard deck-building roguelike! It isn't just about what you carry, but how you organize items within your bag! Their placement has huge effects on their power! You can move items to increase their power!

There's more to Backpack Hero than just organizing your backpack. You explore ancient dungeons, caves, swamps, and more! Don't get lost!

Many animals live in the dark dungeons beneath the world. You will encounter colorful friends and deadly foes!

When you aren't putting your life in danger, you will use the resources you have gathered to upgrade your town! By organizing the perfect town, you will restore the world of Orderia and rescue the animals who live there! Your progress in the overworld unlocks new content but it won't give you any unfair advantages on a trip into the dungeons.

Take to the dungeons with just your trusty backpack and its contents in this inventory management roguelike.

Backpack Hero has just launched into Early Access.

Jump into the tiny shoes of Purse the Packrat and two brand new characters previously only available for Kickstarter backers. Each character possesses a backpack bigger than they are but there’s still never quite enough room for all the loot!

Players can expect some new items, weapons, enemies and two new characters - Tote the Toad and CR-8 the Robot! Pick a character, travel through dungeons, utilize as many pieces of loot as possible and, most importantly, keep it all organized.

That’s the key in this adventure!

Key Features:

  • Hundreds of Items: Each item has its own unique effect and, depending on where you place it in your backpack, can be powerful when used in the 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 organizational skills against powerful enemies small to large to everything in between.
  • Endless Dungeons to Explore: Randomly generated dungeons means that no playthrough will be like the last. 

Backpack Hero is coming to PC (Steam) in 2023.
