Hyper Light Drifter is a top-down action RPG developed and published by Los Angeles indie darlings Heart Machine following a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign. It combines equal parts Link to The Past and Super Meat Boy to produce a beautifully surreal – if occasionally punishing – experience.
Shooting Stars! is a manic bullet-hell developed by Vienna-based studio Blood Irony and published on PC by Daedalic Entertainment. It’s a sensory onslaught that leans on lame celebrity lookalikes and a liberal helping of memetic web culture to compensate for a sadly vapid arcade experience.
