Heart Forth, Alicia

Entrant 2017

Alonso Martin


Heart Forth, Alicia is a Metroidvania RPG about a young wizard pursued by a terror in the sky. This game combines the tight gameplay from classic action platformers like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the intricate world and dungeon designs from the Zelda series with an epic and more serious narrative akin to iconic RPGs like Xenogears or Final Fantasy Tactics.

On the night of your coming of age trial, terror rains over your village, scorching everything in its path. Soon, you're catapulted into the middle of an ongoing war between the wizards of the forest and the desert army of the West. Desperate to reunite with your loved ones, you embark on a journey across the vast regions of a beautiful but threatening world, sculpted by the pulsing violence of its past.

Engage in fast and agile melee combat with your whip, master devastating magic spells to annihilate your enemies and solve creative puzzles, survive through epic boss battles, adventure across the game's many vast regions to find all its secrets, and experience a deep and unique narrative while trying to escape from a hostile force that looms over the sky.

Heart Forth, Alicia has been in development since 2007. It was successfully funded through Kickstarter in 2014 and will be released on PC, PS4, PS Vita and Nintendo Wii U.
