Taking another look at Hyper Light Drifter

Hyper Light Drifter footage released.

Hyper Light Drifter footage released.

Gamers may recall seeing (and perhaps even supporting) a little Kickstarter asking for $27,000 in order to create a game called Hyper Light Drifter. The Kickstarter was successful, with the team behind the game raking in $645,000 from their Kickstarter.

They’ve now released a pre-alpha basic demonstration of the game, containing three full minutes of gameplay. This footage can be seen here:

As our friends at Kotaku point out, usually the “Pre-alpha” disclaimer is put on videos to explain why said videos tend to look rather bad. In this game’s case, however, if we didn’t see the disclaimer, we probably still wouldn’t have been disappointed.

What are your thoughts on the game? Did you support the Kickstarter when it was up?
