  1. Hyper Light Drifter, a game that might just be an all-time great action-adventure, released in 2016 and has persisted in the gaming consciousness for years thanks to its stylish and imaginative use of pixel art as well as its tight, rewarding combat. Those stunning visuals and action-packed conflicts will be adapted into a Hyper Light Drifter television series thanks to a partnership between developer Heart Machine and Adi Shankar, the producer responsible for getting the Netflix Castlevania series off the ground (and who is currently doing the same for Devil May Cry and Assassin's Creed). Hyper Light Drifter tells the story of a lonely wanderer afflicted by a progressive illness who traverses a world full of others who have been displaced from their homes. His adventure eventually leads him through the ancient ruins and bones of long-dead creatures to recover memories and shards of power that are linked to a doorway at the center of a slowly growing settlement. The mystery that lingers in the heart of this world holds the key to understanding both the Drifter and his world. Polygon released details from a conversation they had with Alx Preston, the founder of Heart Machine, about the upcoming adaptation. "We're going to make it cool," said Preston, "Hyper Light as a game was pretty atmospheric and kind of overbearing at times. For a series, the question is: how do you sustain and keep your attention on a non-interactive run? Does it get really, really dark and serious? Does it have some levity?” Given Shankar's success with Castlevania, the solution likely involves a mixture of both gritty material unafraid to take a show to some uncomfortable places while injecting some quippy dialogue that conveys a lot in a short amount of time. Given how well Castlevania was received, it's likely Powerhouse Animation could be tapped once again to adapt Hyper Light Drifter. The animation studio has been on a roll recently between Castlevania (which is expected to get a third season this year), the upcoming action-adventure Gods & Heroes animated Netflix series, and their original production Seis Manos coming later this year. While the style of Hyper Light Drifter relied on a gorgeous pixel aesthetic, the series will be more directly taking inspiration from the anime work of Hayao Miyazaki in Studio Ghibli's heyday. The project of adapting Hyper Light Drifter is still in its infancy, so many details about the series are still up in the air. For one, the game featured no dialogue whatsoever, something that would be incredibly difficult for a series if it's looking to find anything resembling mainstream appeal. “Considering Hyper Light was wordless, there’s an idea there of how much that would carry over to to a show,” Preston mused, "Could it be a more silent series or would we have voice acting? There's also the question of whether this would be a straight adaptation of Hyper Light Drifter's story or whether Preston and Shankar will expand on the story - or take it entirely new places.

  3. We've known since back in February that Netflix was working on creating a mini-series based on the Castlevania franchise. Now we have our first glimpse at what that series will look like. This animated adaptation appear to lean hard on the Gothic horror elements that have been near and dear to the series since its inception. Skeletons on pikes, blood, whips, explosions, dark visuals - the teaser, titled Vengeance, gives off every indication that Netflix is targeting an older audience with their animated Castlevania. Perhaps the grit on display in Castlevania is meant to be Netflix's competitive answer to the massively popular Attack on Titan series, currently on its second season. While video game adaptations have been given a bad rap in recent years with a multitude of lackluster attempts to reimagine video game series as movies, there is reason to hope that Castlevania might find success. It has been masterminded by Adi Shankar, who worked on the film Dredd and helped make the gritty Power Rangers short a reality. Dead Space writer and the creator of the storyline for Iron Man 3, Warren Ellis has helped to pen the series from the ground up. On top of that, animation work has been done by some of the people behind Adventure Time. Overall, color me pleasantly surprised by this teaser and hopeful that the series can really become something special. Netflix's Castlevania releases on July 7.

  5. While many should rightly be skeptical of video game properties coming to Netflix after the runaway rumor that Netflix was putting a Legend of Zelda show into production last year, we can confirm that Netflix is indeed developing a show based on the Castlevania games. io9 first noticed that the words "Castlevania Season 1, Part 1" were nestled within a recent press release from Netflix with a projected release of sometime during 2017. That's right. We are getting a vampire hunting show based on Castlevania sometime within the next ten months. As exciting as that prospect might be, details beyond that it exists are pretty scarce. Adi Shankar, known for his work producing Dredd and the gritty Power Rangers short from 2015, has been attached to the Castlevania project for a while now. He has specifically mentioned working with Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde who are best known for their work behind the scenes on Adventure Time. Shankar has described the show as dark, satirical, and super violent. "After a decade of propaganda it will flip the vampire sub-genre on its head," he stated in a Facebook announcement last year. Warren Ellis, the writer behind the Dead Space video game, RED, and the story on which Iron Man 3 based itself, was brought on board to write the series. In a recent Facebook post trumpeting the announcement of Castlevania coming to Netflix, Shankar threw down the gauntlet. "I personally guarantee that it will end the streak and be the western world’s first good video game adaptation," the producer promised. Here's hoping you can deliver, Mr. Shankar. The second part of the series is expected to release in 2018. View full article
