Working in the video game industry can bring up some pretty strange experiences, some of which might even surprise seasoned professionals in the field. It is more than worth it to pay attention to accounts such as the one provided by the founders of the Hyper Light Drifter brand, the history of which was covered by documentary filmmakers from Noclip.
There are a lot of stories in the world of independent game development that don’t have happy endings – studios come into existence, make their first game, and then pack up their belongings for good. The team that was responsible for Solar Ash as well as two products from the Hyper Light series also had a difficult time, but happily, they were able to successfully execute as many as three highly successful titles despite the difficulties they faced.
In the most recent episode of the Noclip series, the developers discuss the behind-the-scenes work of Hyper Light Drifter and Hyper Light Breaker that they do, the beginnings of the series, its future, and various other topics of interest.
