Hyper Light Drifter, the ultra cool 2D action-aaction-adventure game from Heart Machine, is hitting current gen consoles later this month. The game has clear inspirations from old school titles that made the genre popular like The Legend of Zelda, while using today's modern power to create fluid and fast action. A quick look at the trailer below will spark intrigue, inspire awe, and strum at nostalgia all in a short two minutes. I have heard plenty good about this on the social sites and am excited to get to finally try it out. Hyper Light Drifter is another successfully launched Kickstarter, one of which that blew its funding goal out of the water, initially seeking $27,000 and ending with a whopping $600,000! Drift and slash your way to adventure July 26th on Xbox One and PS4. The game is currently out on PC and Mac, with a Vita option coming this fall.
