Heartbound Demo on Game Jolt
Heartbound is a game I’ve been looking forward to for a while, and now a full demo is available for download on Game Jolt. In just a week, it’s become one of Game Jolt’s top best-rated indie games on their site. Here’s why you should check out the Heartbound Demo.
Heartbound is the story of a boy and his dog. The boy, Lore doesn’t have the best living situation, but his talking dog Baron makes up for everything. That is until one fateful day when Baron disappears and it’s up to Lore to find him. Lore then goes on a crazy adventure to save his friend. However, the decisions you make will have an effect on the story. This includes picking up socks, turning on lights and even feeding Lore dog food. Currently, there is a 30+ minute demo available now to play on Game Jolt.
It’s just a demo and I already have so many feels and emotions when it comes to this game. I could never be mean to an animal so thus I fed Baron and took the trash out. There is an option though where you could throw out the dog food right in front of Baron’s face. Things I’ve been told become harder for Lore if this was the case. Plus, with all this Lore’s mental stability starts to become questionable.
So far, I’m loving the characters, the story line and even the small little bits of geeky humor they have put into the game. I can’t wait to see where this game will go when finished.
Either way, the demo really has me excited for this game. I got to meet the Game Director and the Lead Artist for Heartbound at Denver Comic Con this year, and they are both awesome people. I really can’t wait to see what Heartbound develops into. You should totally check out the Hearbound demo on Game Jolt though. It’s free and the link is below!
