Heart Forth, Alicia
You play Alicia, a young wizard living on an island in the sky named Auster. Through numerous events she has ended in the land beneath the clouds by the will of an evil Spirit. She sets off on a journey to get back to Auster and stop the Spirit from terrorizing her homeland. Defending herself with her Wizard’s Lace, she defeats hostile creatures and wicked enemies. She acquires spells to aid her on her adventure whether they be used against enemies or to solve puzzles.
With Alicia’s story comes the story of The Woman. A live-action story that gives off a different perspective of the game. Maybe even changing how you view the world of Heart Forth, Alicia.
Heart Forth, Alicia looks to be an instant classic. It has beautiful pixel art, dynamic lighting, fluid combat, and an intriguing story. It wears it’s inspirations on its sleeve. It’s easy to tell that it has the combat of Castlevania, the world building of Zelda, the maze like levels of Super Metroid, and with a Xenogears-esque story, it’s a force to be reckoned with. And the live-action story is a very interesting addition. I can’t wait to see how that will be incorporated. I for one am very excited for this game and I know I will be seeing much more of it in the future.
Heart Forth, Alicia is set to be released on PC in 2015 but is currently on Kickstarter and has already achieved their goal of $60,00 but there is still time to pledge and there are still some amazing stretch goals that will make this game all the more grander so I encourage you to pledge if you can!
