Hyper Light Drifter is a difficult action game set in a mysterious and gorgeous sci fi world.
How about that music?
The combat is very deliberate and enemy encounters are thoughtfully designed. The words Dark Souls will probably get thrown around a lot when people talk about this game, as well as Zelda and Metroid. And it is difficult, but not punishingly so. You don't lose anything on death except for a bit of progress, as the game autosaves conveniently and often.
The world is a world of mystery. There is no text aside from a minimal amount necessary for interface prompts. Decaying titans litter the landscape with rusting artillery pieces and crumbling buildings. NPCs you encounter in the ruins and camps communicate their story through series of beautifully rendered scenes. There is much left to the imagination as you build an impression of the world. There are also secrets littered all over the place. It's up to you to discover how everything works, from currency and upgrading your equipment to unlocking inaccessible areas.
This is a pretty good game and I think it'll have a lot to talk about. Don't forget to use the spoiler tags!
