Hyper Light Drifter is one I have kept an eye on since the Kickstarter, as graphically it looks vibrant and beautiful. The good news is the release date now set as the 31st of March should include Linux too.
Aaron from Knockout Games is doing the Linux version, and the recent Kickstarter update says this about it:
QuoteI'm sure we'll get this question, so I'll head it off at the pass: we are still working out some final kinks on the Linux build; we still plan to launch it at the same time as PC and Mac, though there's the possibility of needing a bit of extra time. So far it's looking good, and like it'll be out in time. We'll keep everyone posted on this subject.
About the game (Official)
Echoes of a dark and violent past resonate throughout a savage land, steeped in treasure and blood. Hyper Light Drifter is an action adventure RPG in the vein of the best 16bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.
Drifters of this world are the collectors of forgotten knowledge, lost technologies and broken histories. Our Drifter is haunted by an insatiable illness, traveling further into the lands of Buried Time, hoping to discover a way to quiet the vicious disease.
- From each character to subtle background elements, everything is lovingly hand-animated.
- Easy to pick up, difficult to master; enemies are vicious and numerous, hazards will easily crush your frail body, and friendly faces remain rare.
- Upgrade weapons, learn new skills, discover equipment and traverse a dark, detailed world with branching paths and secrets abound.
