AE Heart

Entrant 2014

Telenon Towers


AE Heart is a cross between a top down action RPG and a strategic board game. Playing as The Dreamer, you have 30 days to do as much to save your dying world as you can. By day, you arrange the buildings in your town in order to unlock new dungeons and progress farther in the game, and by night you enter the dungeons to collect the resources you need to grow stronger and build better buildings.

Some of the highlights of the game are:
-Over 50 unique items you can use to fight off or run from foes
-Platforming elements keep the action frantic
-Roguelike elements ensure there is always a tradeoff between risk and reward
-Mix of action and strategy keeps replayability high
-Retro theme in the style of the 16 bit classics
-Randomized class and item system means every playthrough will feel unique, but with the flavor of your starting class
-Passive and active abilities are obtained from the same pool of resources, and you can respec at any time, meaning there are always new options for customizing your character
-Level grid system adds an extra layer of depth to customization, as it presents many different ways to build your character during a single playthrough
