      Nice to see this will be coming to Switch. Might use my refund from the WiiU version to pick it up.

    2. Martin Sosus on March 21, 2018

      Id be down with a switch key, I doubtful it'll happen however.

      Ditto on Switch Key.

    4. Christophe Mangot on March 20, 2018

      Soooo... What about a Switch Key for WiiU Backers ? :)

    5. Timothy Kolek on March 20, 2018

      Seems the game was just announced for Switch. :)

      What are the chances of a Nintendo Switch port?

      I STILL have not received my PS4 code. I donated 150$ to HLD. Bakerkit says I am locked down for processing for over a week. HLD is available for purchase on at the Playstation store, I do not understand how it is possible that I am still waiting for this.

    8. Violet Robinson on September 29, 2017

      Did the alt drifter ever come out on ps4? I paid but I think I never received my code if so

    9. ProfessorPlum on July 14, 2017

      I would also like to know about the artbook's status!

    10. Allan Dean on June 19, 2017

      Any news on the artbook pdf ?
      Since the book is already printed...

    12. Sharkey on May 16, 2017

      Happy to report that my art book has arrived here in Seattle! =D

    13. Sharkey on April 20, 2017

      Just got address confirmation email for my art book, looks like it's finally happening!

    14. Michael Miller on April 2, 2017

      Put in my refund request via direct message, fingers crossed for a response. Not planning on backing any future projects from this company.

      Since there has been no status updates or responses I would like to again request a refund for my art book.

      Still waiting on my art book. At this point can I just get a refund?

    22. Andre Lin on February 6, 2017

      In september 2016 I've sent you a email to get a refund (because of the cancellation of the Wii U version). You were OK and asked me for my Paypal account.
      Since that date, i've sent you 5-6 emails with the informations and no answer... 4 months without any answer.
      Do you even plan to give me back my money ? Are you guys honest people ?

    25. Attakarn Vachiravuthichai on January 26, 2017

      I haven't received any rewards,
      keys for mac, and keys for ps4
      also the artbook

    26. Sébastien Damien Larocque on January 3, 2017

      Hello Ive never received the ps4 key is it possible I havent done everything properly? Can you email me please, it seems we cant send you private messages here anymore, what a bummer.

    27. ¡¿Art?! on January 2, 2017

      Still waiting on the art book and extra digital copies of the game...

    28. Nathan Mead on December 24, 2016

      On the upside, the print is gorgeous!

    29. Nathan Mead on December 24, 2016

      Ah, the huge tube that I just picked up from the post office must be the art print, which I've now paid customs fees on twice so I've paid out over £34. :/

    30. Nathan Mead on December 23, 2016

      Just collected a package that I had to pay a huge customs fee on as the customs declaration said it contained the replica cartridge and art print, but it only contains the cartridge and no art print.

      I just received an email that my package was on the way. However, the package is going to the wrong receiver. They are not using the information provided via the survey. Instead, they are using my nick cut in two as the receiver. Somebody with the same problem?

      Just received my RESPLENDENT art print, and it is just as it's called!

      Any word on when the art book is shipping?

    34. Eric V on December 14, 2016

      I received and email today from iam8bit that the physical rewards have shipped!!

      Here's the email :
      Hello HLD Kickstarter Backer!

      We're sending you a quick note to let you know that we are currently shipping out the Hyper Light Drifter Kickstarter rewards - which include prints, boxes and cartridges.

      In fact, many rewards are ALREADY in the mail, as they are sent out in daily waves. We expect all shipments to be processed and in the post by the end of the week.

      As it is the holiday season, transit is a bit congested, but rest assured, you will receive your package. We'd teleport these packages to you if we had the technology, but alas, we're beholden to more conventional methods of shipping.

      For clarity, the delay was a result of damages incurred to several shipments of boxes, inhibiting our ability to fulfill all orders at the same time. We're keen on delivering quality products, and the resulting damages were to a good amount of inventory, and simply did did not pass our QC standards.

      Thanks for your patience.

      The iam8bit Family

      No physical rewards as well. They said on their last update (22 October) that Iam8bit had started sending out the rewards. That's almost 2 months ago. Did anyone get them so far?

    37. Nick Evans on December 8, 2016

      I have nothing when it comes to physical rewards.. any update on what is happening there?

      John on December 1, 2016

      I'm also curious about my physical goods, but Iam8bit has a terrible reputation for timeliness. An update would be appreciated though.

      on November 30, 2016

      still waiting on my physical goods

    40. Jun Kim on November 29, 2016

      Is there any progress about Console Ver. for Asia region?

    41. Ahmed alsaihati on November 26, 2016

      Etienne Girard on November 25, 2016

      So will there eventually be a platform change survey for those who chose discontinued platform versions? The game has been out for a while and I still haven't played it because I wanted it on wii U.

    43. Luke Harrison on November 2, 2016

      I haven't got any key for this, I would like the PS4 one but haven't even been sent a steam one. I'm pretty disappointed as the game has been out in retail for ages and I've not heard a pip.

    44. Tyler Head on October 30, 2016

      thanks for not fulfilling my reward, will never back another project of yours again

    45. Lars-Henrik Henriksson on October 25, 2016

      I havent recieved my PS4 key either. Humblebundle just states I'll be contacted once it is availible...

    46. Christopher Nemat on October 22, 2016

      Hope you're feeling better. Instead of Wii U any chance of a Nintendo Switch port?

      Is there any news about the physical rewards?

    49. Christopher Nemat on October 13, 2016

      Hi guys I just was able to get into my kickstarter account after being locked out for 2 years mainly for my own negligence I can own up to that. However I just got in and I'm very excited for this game, is there a way to still get the rewards that I pledged for? I emailed the support email as well.

    50. Charles Figel on September 16, 2016

      Just so people know, requests for key swaps are going out. It is taking a while though. I sent an email Sept 12th and finally got a reply this afternoon. I'm bummed that I won't be able to play on the WiiU because I'm not sure my old laptop is going to be able to run this at all. Gonna give it a shot though.
