Hyper Light Drifter developer reveals Solar Ash Kingdom

Developer Heart Machine has announced its next game called Solar Ash Kingdom. Details are rather slim at the moment, but as far as teasers go, this one is rather masterful.

Heart Machine’s previous game Hyper Light Drifter is loved by many for its amazing environments, stellar art and fluid combat. While we have no idea what kind of game Solar Ash Kingdom is going to be, there are still many similarities: An interesting looking protagonist, a crumbling world and large enemies to face.

The switch to 3D has been handled beautifully and the initial scene is so serene you might think this is the next big puzzle solving game. Just look at how interesting the world looks. It might be 3D, but it shares so much of what made Hyper Light Drifter’s world come together.

Then a character comes skating down an ash cloud, hurtling towards a mighty monster, weapon at the ready. Oh, things aren’t as serene then. Guess we will have to wait for Heart Machine to reveal a little more about what kind of game this is.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
