Let's Chatter/Splatter Over... Hyper Light Drifter

Catch The Drift?

Hyper Light Drifter is beautiful. Its loud yet effortless art direction screams a quiet confidence, a vision that's both bold and incredibly vulnerable. I very much like what I see, and many, many others agree - to the tune of $645k, in fact. But looks alone don't make a game. If Hyper Light Drifter doesn't play well, then all the glowing pinks and passionate purples in the world won't mean jack. And that would be very, very sad indeed. Go below to watch me play an early demo of the game and find out if it's on the right track.

(Apologies for being pretty rubbish at the game in places. Gamepad controls aren't my strongest suit, and also you were all making me nervous with your prying eyes and mocking smirks. Stop staring at me! Stoppppppp. Oh god, at least blink or something!)
