Hyper Light Drifter video shows off old-school gameplay

Retro-style RPG bound for multiple platforms in 2014

Indie studio Head of Heart Machine has released a new video of its new game, Hyper Light Drifter.

"In Hyper Light Drifter you'll travel a ruined land with a twisted past, delving deep to collect lost technologies and unveil secrets long buried," describes the developer.

The old-school action-oriented RPG promises "combat that's lightning quick, brutal and never unfair, a strong narrative and character interactions expressed through visual design" and "a rich and varied world to explore with an intense atmosphere".

The game is due to release later this year on PS4, Vita, Wii U, PC, Mac Linux and Ouya.


While it's unclear which version is being demonstrated in the new video above, the trailer was shared via a post on the US PS Blog, where you'll find more info on the title.

Look out for it via download channels later this year.
