Controller Issues

Hello everyone,

We are aware that some players are experiencing some new and odd issues with a variety of controllers. It may be due to changes in our engine, Game Maker, or some of our own updates in the code, or even external factors. We are trying to determine exactly what's going on, but it takes time when the issues are inconsistent and difficult to reproduce.

If you are experiencing problems with controller detection, please compile your system specs and any external hardware you have connected, as well as any anti-virus apps you may be running to help us determine exactly why this may be occurring in such an uneven way. Any information we can gather will be extremely helpful in fixing these problems.

We are addressing this as quickly as we can - apologies for any frustration and thank you for bearing with us.

About This Game

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. Our Drifter is haunted by an insatiable illness, traveling further into the lands of Buried Time, hoping to discover a way to quiet the vicious disease.

• From each character to subtle background elements, everything is lovingly hand-animated.
• Easy to pick up, difficult to master; enemies are vicious and numerous, hazards will easily crush your frail body, and friendly faces remain rare.
• Upgrade weapons, learn new skills, discover equipment and traverse a dark, detailed world with branching paths and secrets abound.
