Some of you want head shots in your games, some of you want gems to match up, and some of you want physics. Then, of course, there’s woefully underrepresented group seeking games that explore concepts of human rationality and recursive self-improvement. If that’s you, rest easy, for Girl With a Heart from Bent Spoon Games is heading to Mac, PC, iOS and Android on November 17th.
Set in Underfoot, a subterranean city inhabited by the Dark race, Girl With a Heart of is the story of Raven, an eleven-year-old girl separated from her parents during a vicious attack by the Light’s army. As her city’s last defenses slowly crumble and her sense of normalcy is stripped away, Raven learns that she plays a critical role in this global conflict due to her unusual, artificial heart. Now she must learn to harness her newly acquired power and make a series of choices that will have life-altering consequences beyond her little town.
And that, of course, is what we dig about independent game development. I’ll take this over your human rationality over space marines, thank you, and I’ll take this art direction, too.
Girl with a Heart plays out as an interactive narrative; the player communicates with the citizens of Underfoot and is confronted with choices that influence the flow of the story. Good decisions aren’t always the right decisions, and players must use rationality and logic to succeed.
Girl with a Heart of will be available November 17th for $5.99 on PC and Mac, and $2.99 on iOS and Android.
