Kickstarter Games for PS Vita Part V: Hyper Light Drifter
This is our fifth episode spent on Kickstarter games that are to be developed on PS Vita, and we will be talking about a game that already has been financed through crowdfunding: Hyper Light Drifter.
The five-membered indie team Heart Machine is proposing to the player to live a 2D Action RPG in a gorgeous and devastated world. Inspired by the best 8 to 16-bit classics, the pixelated environments will take the player on the path to a dangerous and intense adventure where drifters, the role of the main character, is to seek and collect ancient knowledge in order to cure his illness. Therefore, most of the game will be spent in dark caves and ruins built by a long gone ancient civilisation.
The game offers a dynamic combat system and brutal fights, as well as the importance of upgrading his equipment and looking for new ones. Indeed, each player will be able to compose his gear with numerous loots for his sword, guns, defensive systems, etc. Finally, the developers are talking about an easy at first, then challenging progression; such as medium and huge bosses to defeat.
The game is planned on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X and now PS4, Vita, Wii U, OUYA and Steam, and it shall be released in mid 2014. And if you wish to get the game, Heart Machine now accepts financing through its PayPal.
