A gathering of assassins, cultists, elders and the miscellaneous undead? No, it's not a production by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. It's Loot Clicker, the new incremental idle game from TrampolineTales! Loot Clicker takes the standard creature encounter formula typically found in roleplaying games and streamlines it, then presents it on a grand scale. With money earned through farming, you're recruiting a party from among eight different character classes to lay to rest everything that's wrong with the world from insects to malevolent spirits, and using the money earned to recruit still more. Each class has its own properties, which influence what sort of creatures you'll encounter, and will claim their own proportion of the wealth they generate. Encounters will also net you loot, different types of equipment which add buffs to your stats. Predominantly these will be chests and sacks for each of your class types, but you'll occasionally get mouse pointers to increase your clicking effectiveness, potions to add temporary boosts to it, and scrolls that provide major temporary buffs.
Loot Clicker's interface is entirely mouse-based. The Shop allows you to buy rare pieces of equipment that don't show up as loot, but its primary use is to let you sell off loot that's inferior to what you already have. The equipment buffs and inventory system management are really what set Loot Clicker apart from most idle games as each character class has a slot for exactly one chest and one bag, and finding the best ones to keep means comparing all the loot that washes in with whatever you currently have equipped. It may not be as elaborately-designed as, say, DPS Idle's system, but it's an enhancement we're glad to find emerging in the genre. It may be new on the scene, but Loot Clicker has already generated so much interest that there's a sequel in the works with even more classes, items, and quests which replace the original's achievements feature. Until then, idle fans will find that Loot Clicker satisfies those inventory managing, perfectionist OCD tendencies nicely.
