Target Acquired: Hyper Light Drifter

Hyper Light Drifter, from developer Heart Machine, is a colorful action-RPG constructed with chunky pixel art. Drifters explore the ancient depths in search of knowledge and technology that has been lost to time, and this particular Drifter is looking for answers to stop a terrible disease that has infected him. Players slash through enemies, upgrading weapons and discovering new equipment as they explore a large world filled with treasure and secrets. Your primary weapon is a sword made of light, although you’ll discover a number of limited-ammo projectile weapons as well. You also have a shield to absorb direct attacks and a dash move to evade enemies, avoid traps, or charge forward to bash baddies in their hurty places.

The game is now available for PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam, and planned on PS4 and Xbox One later this year, with releases on Vita and Wii U to follow. Check our coverage here.
