"The Drifter starts the preview build of Hyper Light Drifter in a forest clearing, with no introduction. An unnamed companion floats at his side, ready. A few yellow birds hop around near some weathering ruins. I feel, somewhere in the back of my head, a sense that I should be searching for a Master Sword, as in A Link to the Past. But as I wander forward, it becomes clear: I have no idea where I am.
I look into my menus in hope of some clue as to what’s going on—perhaps some item descriptions, a la Dark Souls, would give me some semblance of direction. Nothing. Bar the escape menu, there is no text, or spoken dialogue for that matter, in this game."
