Hyper Light Drifter is an action role playing 2D game that reminds of old fashioned games of 90s. This game is said to be a homage to the 16-bit games of the past. It actually looks like the games from past such as Final Fantasy VI or Mortal Combat from early 1990s.
In this game, your task is to being the independence to the virtual world and free it from dark and violent forces. Just like many other games, you have to face a very touch enemy in the end. During the game, you come across many challenges, monsters and final enemies. You can use the sacred knowledge to fight back and overcome these obstacles.
The main character of the game, Drifter, is going through a world that is suffering from an unknown illness. Drifter is in possession of the ancient technology that has been forgotten by the inhabitants of the place. Using this ancient technology and secret knowledge, Drifter can fight back the dark forces that are causing the illness in this world.
The game not only looks like old 16-bit games, but it also tries to limit any audible conversations. In the tradition of old fashioned games, it tries to use the visuals to convey whatever is happening in the game. Despite the fact that it looks dated, the game has high system requirements. For example, it won’t run on systems that have less than 4GB of RAM.
