No, I haven’t missed out a bit of the title. Girl with a Heart of.
Billed as an interactive story rather than a game, Girl with a Heart of is the first commercial title to be published by indie developer Bent Spoon Games. This is definitely going to be a niche title, promising a ‘thought provoking parable’ for the PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
In a subterranean city inhabited by the Dark race, an eleven year old girl with an artificial heart becomes separated from her family during a vicious attack by the Light’s army. The girl, named Raven, discovers that she is to play a major part in the global conflict because of her heart, and must master her strength and make world affecting choices as the conflict ensues.
“When you continuously try to improve yourself — and, by doing this,
continuously get better at improving yourself — no boundary can hold
you back. That’s what recursive self-improvement and Girl with a Heart of are
Alexei Andreev, the game’s developer and founder
of Bent Spoon Games
Set in a world where darkness, not light, is the primary life source, Girl with a Heart of looks genuinely intriguing. The world needs more thought provoking games so here’s hoping the story and execution are strong enough to make it a hit. Girl with a Heart of will be released on November 17 this year, so keep an eye out for the review here at Capsule Computers.
