    I'm looking for a simple automation thing that allows me to play the game in loop without me writing a line of code (enough on my plate)
    press record
    play
    stop & save, give it a name
    make a list of recorded things to loop through (includes wait, transition actions such as clck ESC to enter the menu and exit the current play session)
    build = the game plays all by itself

    (it would be cool as an arcade style looping demo thing too)

    You are describing it as something so simple, but it's very tricky to implement.
    Take a look at this (great!) presentation from GDC (not Unity related though):


    Achieving something like that requires a lot of work.

    What would you like to record? user input? how will you make sure it plays back exactly the same as was previously recorded?
