For those of you out there that love Hyper Light Drifter but wish you could play the game on your tabletop, your wait is nearly over. Metal Weave Games has acquired the license to create just that. They will be hitting Kickstarter in August and the game will launch worldwide summer of next year.
From the announcement:
Metal Weave Games and Heart Machine have reached a multi-year licensing agreement to bring forth the beloved Hyper Light Drifter game to tabletop groups around the world.
“Metal Weave Games has demonstrated skill and passion for building evocative tabletop experiences. We are excited to see what they can bring to the world of Hyper Light Drifter,” said Alx Preston, Founder of Heart Machine.
The agreement calls for Metal Weave Games to produce and support tabletop games, drawing from the extended Hyper Light Drifter universe. Creating realms and stories outside of the events of the game.
“This is only the beginning of our big plans in tabletop for this captivating game,” says Andreas Walters, Creative Director of Metal Weave Games. “Hyper Light Drifter is such a rich and wonderful universe, and we expect to produce an equally evocative line of tabletop products that will last for years to come.”
The full range of tabletop products are slated to hit Kickstarter in August 2019 with a worldwide release planned for summer 2020.
