Hyper Light Drifter, a new indie project that has triggered a fever of interest on Kickstarter, will now be ported to Nintendo’s Wii-U after its development team reached new heights on the crowdfunding platform.
The project, in development at California development team Heart Machine, initially sought $27,000 on Kickstarter but has now surpassed $550,000.
Extra money will help fund Hyper Light Drifter’s expansion to numerous platforms, from PC to Mac, Linux, PS4, Vita, Ouya and Wii U. At the time of writing, the Kickstarter project will still be accepting additional funds for 2 hours until the investment window closes.
Hyper Light Drifter is at times reminiscent of the dungeon designs of 2D Zeldas, as well as the acclaimed iOS title Sword & Sworcery. For some fans, the game stands out through its vivid art style, with ambitious pixel art designs brought to life with a bright and bold colour palette.
