Heart Machine’s Hyper Light Drifter has seen a long development journey but it finally has a release date – it will be available on March 31st for Windows and Mac OS X. PS4 and Xbox One releases are planned for mid-2016. Check out the newest trailer below.
As a 3D action RPG in the vein of The Legend of Zelda, Hyper Light Drifter sees you exploring the ruins of the world in order to find a cure for an illness. The story is inspired by lead developer and animator Alex Preston’s heart disease. It was originally funded on Kickstarter with a goal of $27,000 but eventually garnered $600,000, thus allowing for the scope to expand. The overall development and issues with Preston’s health delayed the game but it’s finally here.
