Are you seriously waiting for Hyper Light Drifter? Heart Machine developers are going to bring another action-role game for you to play in two dimension.
It is similar to those old classical games of 8 and 16-bit but with ultramodern mechanics and game designs on vast scale.
The entire credit for developing this game goes to a developer and an animator, Alex Preston who started making this game with an initial budget of $27000 for various platforms like Windows, Linux and Operating System-X..
But actually he ended up spending around $600000 on Hyper Light Drifter due to hiring of more programmers and other artists. But with increasing this cost he also extended the horizon of the game for other mobile platforms too.
Alex has also taken help from Beau Blyth, the creater of ‘Samurai Gunn’. He has hired ‘Disasterpeace’ for creating the music for the game. The same musician has an experience of working for the music of ‘Fez’.
Why Hyper Light Drifter Release Date got delayed?
Initially the game was set to release in the year 2014 but it required lots of improvements and fixes. Other than that there were some health issues with Alex Preston due to which Hyper Light Drifter release date got delayed.
But, in coming spring or the second quarter of 2016, you are going to explore the vast and beautiful but ruined world full of great dangers and challenges ahead.
In August 2015, there came a statement from Heart Machine confirming that their plan is to launch the first version for windows and OS X and later on would continue with others, once their certification processes get over.
Birth of Hyper Light Drifter from Heart Disease
Watch Hyper Light Drifter Trailer
This game is inspired by the real life incident of the main developer of the game, Alex Preston and his heart disease. In this game, the player controls a drifter who has to find a cure for his illness which he is carrying.
It’s searching progresses through a beautiful but ruined world, which used to be a civilization long ago.
Many gamers are considering it to be a combination of two games, which are; Diablo and The legend of Zelda: A link to the Past.
Hyper Light Drifter Gameplay
It is basically a 2-D, single player game. The lead character to be controlled by you will be carrying a sword known as ‘Energy Sword’.
The power of Enery Sword can be enhanced further by power batteries which you can find on the way during your journey but remember, they are very rare and hence use them properly.
Other than this default weapon, you can also gain access to various long range guns and area weapons for mass destruction during the gameplay.
As the game progresses, the difficulty level increases due to increase in the number as well as the capabilities of the monsters.
So, keep yourself safe during your journey, I wish you best of luck to move ahead and find the solution to your illness.
It is not that easy cowboy!
Alex has made it enough challenging. Hence, hold your horses till the time Hyper light drifter reaches your hands and you start controlling the drifter.
Oh! I forgot to tell you that there would be no spoken dialogues in the game as it has been primarily focussed on game’s music and the other visual effects to tell you the entire story.
Plateforms for which hyper Light Drifter would be available
Alex and his team are putting lots of efforts to bring the game for almost every platform possible to make it a grand success in the history of 2-D games.
You would be able to enjoy this game on Microsoft Windows, Linux Operating System, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Operating System X, PlayStation Vita, Ouya and as well as on Xbox One.
I guess, if it would have been possible for Alex to design some kind of mini version of the game for android lovers too then he would not have stopped.
