Hyper Light Drifter
Crowdfunded Games That Actually Delivered
Hyper Light Drifter has similarities to many games of the past. Whether that be in the stunning pixel-art style of the game, or the action RPG mechanics that might remind you of the likes of Diablo, there’s plenty to enjoy. It’s often described as a combination of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Diablo, so if you like anything in those games, you might enjoy Hyper Light Drifter.
It’s also one of the most successful crowdfunded games of all time. Alex Preston, the game’s creator, initially aimed to only get around $27,000 dollars through Kickstarter. However, the phase ended up making more than $600,000, which is more than 20 times the initial goal. The PC version has also settled at 84 on Metacritic, and fan reviews are almost entirely positive.
