Game description

​Explore a beautiful, vast and ruined world riddled with dangers and lost technologies.

​Echoes of a dark and violent past resonate throughout a savage land, steeped in treasure and blood. Hyper Light Drifter is an action adventure RPG in the vein of the best 16­bit classics, with modernised mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.

Drifters of this world are the collectors of forgotten knowledge, lost technologies and broken histories. Our Drifter is haunted by an insatiable illness, travelling further into the lands of Buried Time, hoping to discover a way to quiet the vicious disease.
