Gaming In The Wild #16: Hyper Light Drifter

by John Rogers

 

Still: 'Hyper Light Drifter' (2016: Heart Machine)


Action-RPG-adventure game Hyper Light Drifter is something of a legendary indie game.


It's a gorgeous pixel-art world, drenched in neon and pastel colour and soundtracked by a haunting ambient synth score. It's also famously difficult, with intense wave-based combat arenas and some hard-as-nails bosses, leading to a lot of understandable bounces and ragequits. We talk about all this and more in a spoiler-free half-hour look at a contemporary indie classic.
