Hyper Light Drifter comes to PC March 31

Console versions coming later

Developer Heart Machine's stylish action role-playing game Hyper Light Drifter will come to Mac and Windows PC next week, the studio announced in an update on its Kickstarter page. Those platforms will get the game March 31, while players on other platforms will have to wait a bit.

Here's what the developer had to say about the planned Linux version:

We are still working out some final kinks on the Linux build; we still plan to launch it at the same time as PC and Mac, though there's the possibility of needing a bit of extra time. So far it's looking good, and like it'll be out in time. We'll keep everyone posted on this subject.

Hyper Light Drifter's console versions will arrive sometime in 2016, according to a newly released trailer.

Heart Machine funded Hyper Light Drifter through Kickstarter in 2013, pitching the top-down action game as a "beautiful, vast and ruined world riddled with unknown dangers and lost technologies ... inspired by nightmares and dreams alike."
