The initial thing that drew most to the game was its unique art style and color palette and for the most part that feeling is alive and well in the game. Beautiful scenery, unique designs, and well-crafted animations are your constant companion on your journey through the world. The story is only told through text-less and voiceless images, and cut scenes giving you a vague understanding of a tragedy that befell the world the mysterious Drifter (the player character) explores. And while Hyper Light Drifter draws homage to Zelda/sword and sorcery style games, it is more focused on platforming and combat rather than puzzles.

From the Wiki page…

 

Hyper Light Drifter is a 2D action role-playing game developed by Heart Machine. The game is an homage to 8-bit and 16-bitgames of the late 20th century, and is considered by its lead developer Alex Preston as a combination of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Diablo. Preston originally launched Kickstarter funding for the title for approximately US$27,000 to develop the title for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux computers, but ended up with more than US$600,000, allowing him to hire more programmers and artists, and expanding the title for console and portable platforms through stretch goals. Though originally scoped for release in 2014, various improvements in the game and issues with Preston’s health set the release back. The Microsoft Windows and OS X versions were released on March 31, 2016, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions to follow in mid 2016, and to other platforms including the PlayStation Vita at a later date.
