FAQ: Hyper Light Drifter
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

What platforms will this be on?

Currently Hyper Light Drifter is planned for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX - on Steam or DRM-free. PS4, Xbox one, and Vita are a-go! Wii U is currently in limbo.

Will this have native controller support on PC?

Yes indeed! The game is designed with a controller in mind, though is playable without. Last updated: Mon, Sep 16 2013 12:16 pm EDT

How will picking a version work?

I'll send a survey out after the Kickstarter and you can tell us exactly what platform(s) you want keys for, depending on your tier. Last updated: Mon, Sep 16 2013 12:16 pm EDT

Will the levels be linear, hub based, open for exploration?

The world is designed to be open for exploration with entry into enclosed Temples and Dungeons. There will be a central hub to return to. Last updated: Mon, Sep 16 2013 9:29 pm EDT

Will the game be coming to EU PSN? Will it be translated in other languages (French)?

Working towards an EU release, though it may be later down the line. It would have translations. Last updated: Wed, Sep 18 2013 5:35 pm EDT

Is an iOS/Android port possible?

Possible but this would be another down the line item to approach as touch is fairly different then the controller-centric play. Last updated: Wed, Sep 18 2013 5:35 pm EDT

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://hyper-light-drifter.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
