The neon, nightmarish soundscape of the acclaimed Hyper Light Drifter has proven to be an incredibly unique part of the game. Over the course of three years, the music and sound were slowly forged, though it took countless revisions, refreshes, and retries for the audio language of the game to come together.
Join Hyper Light Drifter's composer Rich Vreeland (Disasterpeace) and sound designer Akash Thakkar for a behind-the-scenes look at the game's audio design. Along the way, you can learn how creators of all disciplines can garner massive emotional impact through the audio in their next game.
