Lootbox Lyfe is a Meatroidvania (Super Meat Boy X Metroidvania).


Lootbox Lyfe is the world's first cross between a Metroidvania and a Precise Plaftormer. This means that the moment-to-moment gameplay of Lootbox Lyfe entails overcoming difficult platforming segments, but the world is interconnected and you obtain several powerups to reach previously blocked off areas. 


You play as Liam Cappello, a cunning human who has been transported to a 2 dimensional world once ruled by 4 dimensional beings.  Your goal? To rid this world of the grief caused by the existence of Lootboxes.  To restore the balance to this alternate world you must destroy Shadowleaf Irvine's (the bad guy) giant golden Lootbox that lies in his trap-filled lair.

Purchase Details

Lootbox Lyfe exists in its current form only thanks to the support of the kind Kickstarter backers that brought this project to life (as you can see, a lot of progress was made). This page serves as a way to provide them with new demos, and information, while also allowing anyone who missed the crowdfunding phase of the project to opt in through pre-purchasing the game. 

Lootbox Lyfe will release on Steam and Itch.io in the summer of 2019 on Windows and Mac OS. However, the Mac version will most likely come at a later date. All demos provided through this page will also be exclusively for Windows due to it being easier to develop for. Additionally, if you buy Lootbox Lyfe on this page right now, you will receive a Steam key when it finally comes out.


I started off this project entirely on my own, but have since recruited many extraordinary contributors into the team. These include:

This project wouldn't have been able to turn out nearly as well as it has without them, so give them a follow. While you're at it, why don't you follow Lootbox Lyfe's development on my Twitter page? If you end up purchasing the game for yourself, let me know what you think of it so far!
