Hyper Light Drifter pre-alpha combat demonstration

Video shows shield push, missile deflect, and enemy management.

Heart Machine has debuted a new combat video of Hyper Light Drifter, its Kickstarter-funded 2D action RPG for PlayStation 4, Wii U, PS Vita, Ouya, PC, Mac, and Linux.

“This is a pre-alpha basic demonstration,” reads the video description. “Leveling has been left out, and the weapon set is very limited. We want to highlight a few key things for everyone, like the shield push, missile deflect/cut, and enemy management.”

Watch the video below. The game’s due out in June 2014.
