Echoes of a dark and violent past resonate throughout a savage land, steeped in treasure and blood. Hyper Light Drifter is an action adventure RPG in the vein of the best 16bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.
I wanted to create my childhood dream game. I wanted to capture the sense of adventure and danger I felt when exploring A Link to the Past for the first time, or the overwhelming odds that Diablo presented, but in my own voice, with a grander scope and more surreal, brighter style.
