SweetXheart is a slice-of-life game about microagressions, race, and gender. In SweetXheart, you play as Kara, a 19-year-old girl who attends an art college and interns at a tech company. The game centers around the highs and lows of life, including small interactions such as swiping a phone in the morning to wake up.

Players spend a week in Kara's shoes, experiencing the daily life of a nerdy Black girl growing up in New York City. The goal of the game is to share the experience of being a Black woman, dealing with the issues of race and gender while also finding a way to achieve success in school and work. The game is in the progress of being prepared for release.
