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.
Visions for this game have been fluttering in my skull for ages; something dark and fantastic, with giant forests to navigate, huge floating structures to explore, deep crumbling ruins to loot, massive throngs of enemies to rend, and behemoths both flesh and mechanical to overcome. I want it all to be as beautiful as possible, forging color with the dark and eerie wastes and intimidating landscapes. It plays like the best parts of A Link to the Past and Diablo, evolved: 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.
$10 gets you the game on PC, Mac or Linux, Steam or DRM-free. $15 and up lets you choose PS4, Vita, or OUYA! Plus Wii U if we reach the stretch goal of $550,000! (THEY DID!)

The game is planned for a mid 2014 release on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX, currently, with a Steam release in the works! Depending on the stretch goals reached, I would love to get this on PS4 and Vita in the future. Other platforms are also a possibility, but again depends on the resources available at the end of the Kickstarter.
