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.
