Good news for those wanting to play Hyper Light Drifter, as the developer has stated they are going for a same-day Linux release.

QuoteFocusing on Mac and Linux ports - We want to launch PC/Mac/Linux all at once, so this process has already begun with the help of an experienced and trusted developer.


Hyper Light Drifter is a 2D Action RPG in the vein of the best 8-bit and 16-bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.

It is another game that was funded thanks to Kickstarter, and hit waaaaay over the goal. Article taken from

Great news. I was tempted to back this, but I didn't. Still, I'm very interested in buying it once it comes out, assuming it turns out well.

I'm just hoping it releases soon, been waiting for years.

Nice! I pre-ordered this ages ago (during the Last Life kickstarter wrap party), and he was saying it would definitely be for Linux from the start. That was before his heart condition slowed down development of course.

So I'm not surprised to see he's still committed to a multi-platform approach. 100% looking forward to release.

Why wait till halfway down the page to mention the music is being written by Disasterpiece? That makes it an instabuy for me when it's released.
