Arrival Delayed: Hyper Light Drifter

The very promising Hyper Light Drifter, from developer Heart Machine has been pushed out of its 2015 release window. The game will be releasing on Steam for PC and Mac in spring of 2016, followed by planned console releases on PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U.

Hyper Light Drifter 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. Players can go it alone or team up in 2P local co-op.
