I'm pretty sure everyone on the Destructoid staff is excited for Hyper Light Drifter. Ever since that reveal trailer we've been keeping a steady eye on the progress of the game. They've been hitting their stretch goals steadily, and today they've just passed the Wii U goal of $550,000. 

As of this writing the Kickstarter has another 40 hours to go. What's next? The final stretch goal as of right now is a mystery, and will be revealed at the $600,000 target. Some additional bonuses have been detailed for backers, such as a $5 OST. Additionally, there's going to be a livestream celebration starting at 5PM on their Twitch.TV channel. Various indie developers will be brought on as guests, all while they play a bunch of games and do some live drawings.

Hyper Light Drifter is gorgeous and punishing

In recent times it seems as though games in 'retro-style' are on the rise. Perhaps this is nostalgia at work for a bygone era of gaming, or maybe there's an endearing spirit and honesty from gaming's past that peopl...more

I like everything I've seen about Hyper Light Drifter

Enough Kickstarter links come in that, on average, it probably takes a good 15 seconds for me to scan a pitch and know if it's something I want to share. In the case of Hyper Light Drifter, my reaction was instantaneous -- I...more
