Hyper Light Drifter release date

This is an important public service announcement: The latest trailer from indie developer Heart Machine reveals the Hyper Light Drifter release date as March 31, 2016. For PC and Mac, at least.

There will be console (and a PS Vita) version of the Zelda-on-a-very-severe-acid-trip action RPG to follow – and when we have further details on those we’ll let you know – but for now be happy that the Hyper Light Drifter release date has finally been announced, after what feels like an interminable wait since the end of the massively successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2013. Yes, it’s almost two years later than their initial Kickstarter delivery estimates, but none of that matters now – it’s nearly here.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
