With nostalgic hearts on full display, Heart Machine and iam8bit have joined (retro) forces to create the Hyper Light Drifter: Collector’s Edition!
Like all of iam8bit's products, this is a lovingly crafted package, designed to evoke a sense of retro-gaming nostalgia via this masterfully produced SNES bundle. We’ve partnered with Rose Colored Gaming and Piko Interactive to bring you this true labor of love that will fit perfectly next to all of your other SNES games.
No detail was spared! The SNES-style box, 24-page instruction manual and even the metallic sticker on the cartridge were designed by Hyper Light Drifter Heart Machine to perfectly capture the special essence of 16-bit magic. The cartridge is is custom modeled with colored plastic, replicating the now-defunct production process used back in the day.
While looking completely authentic, this cartridge won’t play anything when plugged into your Super Nintendo… but that’s why we’re giving you a game code with purchase!
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.
