Push Square: "Games are released all of the time – every week without fail, as a matter of fact. A very large percentage of these are either forgettable or downright terrible. Sure some are okay, but the real joy stems from discovering a game so good that it couldn't be called anything other than a masterpiece. Enter Heart Machine's Hyper Light Drifter. A monumental success story on Kickstarter – a goal of $27,000 netted the developer $645,000 instead – the game arrived fashionably late to the party, missing its release window by a paltry two years. But, as they say, "art through adversity". Hyper Light Drifter very much fits this, as the title is essentially the result of creator Alx Preston's lengthy history of health issues. The silver lining in all of this? Said health problems birthed one of the better games in recent times."
