Their new game sounds like it will be very different from their previous one.
Heart Machine, the folks who brought us the extremely well received Hyper Light Drifter, are not resting on their laurels. It sounds like they already have a brand new game in the works. Based on a job listing posted on Gamasutra, it sounds like the development studio has already begun hiring for this new title.
The title, based on the job listing, sounds substantially different from Hyper Light Drifter. Where that game was a pixel art adventure game in the vein of classic titles like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, the job listing for this new game asks for experience with 3D modeling and Unreal Engine 4, specifying “character interactions, NPC interactions, scripted sequences, combat, environmental interactions, and much more” as mechanics that the game will apparently have.
Given how great Hyper Light Drifter ended up being, I am sure no one will have any trepidation’s surrounding this new game, whatever it does end up being. Hopefully they announce it soon. Hyper Light Drifter is out for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, Linux, and Ouya.
