I discovered Hyper Light Drifter through the Kickstarter newsletter for another project, Mighty No. 9. The games moody environments and gameplay style seems like a mashup of Diablo, Zelda, Bastion, and Nausicaa. I’m really excited for this project and just became a backer, and you should too.
I’ve been supporting this project for a long time, since I first heard about it on the Obscure Handhelds blog. This is an amazing piece of hardware that should appeal to every homebrew and emulator fan who has enjoyed systems like the CAANOO and Dingoo.
Please support the Kickstarter and help this great community project reach a larger audience. Also, there is already a great group of gamers discussing the device in the forums.
This Kickstarter is definitely worth supporting, and needs to raise $20,000 in its last 24 hours. Please go support the project to give these fantastic indie games (like Johann Sebastain Joust) a proper release.
