Hyper Light Drifter

Hyper Light Drifter is a 2D Action RPG in the vein of the best 8-bit and 16-bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale. The creators wanted it to be as beautiful as possible, forging color with the dark and eerie wastes and intimidating landscapes. They say it plays like the best parts of A Link to the Past and Diablo, evolved with lightning fast combat, more mobility, an array of tactical options, more numerous and intelligent enemies, and a larger world with a twisted past to do it all in.

Here the Kickstarter trailer!

It definitely looks awesome and we want to put our hands on it as soon as possible. But here are more screens/gifs.

But what it’s exacly about?

  • Rip through enemies with responsive, fun combat; engaging and brutal. Upgrade weapons, discover new equipment and trek deeper than ever.
  • Traverse a dark, detailed and interconnected world with alternate paths and secret loot. Miyazaki films have taught me that beautiful animation and design add life to a world. From characters to background elements, everything is lovingly crafted while I hum show-tunes and squint suspiciously at the flickering pixels until they perform as intended.
  • A challenge – The game is accessible and easy to pick up, but difficult to master and complete; enemies and hazards become more vicious and numerous, so players must use clever tactics to avoid death. (Some yell hurtful phrases at players simply to bring tears to the cereal bowl below.)

It’s also doing pretty well on Kickstarter, reaching  more than $300k (over a $27k goal) in just a couple of weeks. Here are the stretch goals.
