Game release: “Else Heart.Break()” (PC)

Gaming and programming go hand in hand, that’s obvious, but what about the person behind the scenes who puts it all together? That’s what Erik Svedang‘s adventure life simulator Else Heart.Break() wants to explore.

These days indie games seem to finally break away from pixel art platformers and artful non-games and try something more interesting. It might at first look very low budget with few character animations and without the highest number of polygons, but there’s enough detail in the often beautiful open world of Dorisburg where young Sebastian finds himself with his first job.

Getting to know people and the city is only part of the adventure elements, as solving puzzles involves learning about hacker techniques. In how far problems can be tackled in different ways remains to be seen, but it’s certainly an intriguing prospect. It could even be the next Watch Dogs or actually what Ubisoft’s title promised it would be, with a better story of consequences.

The game is only text-based, but judging from the dialogues, the writing seems to be good, i.e. portraying a likeable character one can relate to by watching him in real-life situations interact with other people minus the usual hero attitude. Of course during the course of the story, more sinister people who mean harm to the citizens enter Sebastian’s world. So it’s up to him to stop them, even if it means his heart getting broken in the process.
