Hyper Light Drifter - A Quick Update

by Couchpotato, 2014-08-25 06:01:25

Heart Machine has a new short kickstarter update for Hyper Light Drifter. The update has information on the status of the project, and shares a few new gifs.

There are two reasons for the longer-than-usual timing on the update:

1) Focus. We chose to keep anything besides development as a secondary concern in order to execute and it's been extremely productive for us. (For instance, we chose not to attend PAX Prime this year in order to remain focused, even though it would be lovely to engage with everyone there.) The whole team has been blazing though tasks as we gear up for the September beta. 

2) Health. As I've made public here and elsewhere on the internet, I suffer from serious health issues. Some months I'm able to do everything I need to, others, not so much. These last two months have been particularly rough for me, so updates and other Kickstarter/community related responsibilities that aren't paramount to game completion temporarily fall by the wayside in order to focus what energy I have into the game and maintaining physical stability. 

The positive component of such a downside remains the incredible support from the team. They've been keeping Hyper Light bursting and on track while I tend to recovery. I'll always have to deal with the terrible challenges my body presents, but it soothes and motivates me knowing that my team has my back.

Come next update we should have a solid beta release date for everyone to look forward to. See you then, Drifters.
