Hyper Light Drifter might not make it to Wii U

0

It's in limbo until further notice

Thanks to a prosperous run on Kickstarter, Heart Machine brought in enough funding for its slick action-RPG Hyper Light Drifter to target a good spread of platforms. But one of the planned versions, the Wii U port, might not pan out. It is "currently in limbo," according to the team.

"We had information about our engine [GameMaker: Studio], two years back, when we announced support for the platform. This had assured us we could port to the Wii U with relatively little hassle by now. However, due to ongoing internal contractual issues beyond our control between the platform holder and engine developer, we just don't know when or if this situation will have a good resolution. We are looking into the options available and doing what we can to help push the issue, including posting about it here."

The Wii U version may happen yet, so Kickstarter backers will still be able put themselves down for it, at least for the time being. "We would rather keep this option open, knowing there's still a possibility for it to work, than cancel the port right now," said Heart Machine. If all else fails, backers will be given a key for Hyper Light Drifter on another platform of their choice.

On the whole, "Development continues to be very intense, so updates will remain a bit spartan. Looking forward to next month with details on release date!"
