Hyper Light Drifter - Preview @ Games Abyss

by Couchpotato, 2014-04-20 05:32:39

Games Abyss has posted a preview of Hyper Light Drifter from a Pax Prime demo, and they call it a pixel-lover's paradise if you're a fan of these type of games.

My time with Hyper Light Drifter, while brief, was enough to remind me why I backed the project to begin with and why it has been on the receiving end of such high praise.  From the simple graphics to its minimalist soundtrack (care of Fez's Disasterpeace), Hyper Light Drifter was one of the best experiences of PAX East 2014. It does not rely on my strong emotional ties to the 8/16-Bit era to achieve its level of greatness. Instead, it plays out like a tribute to all I loved as a young gamer and elevates it to places I never thought possible.
