“Heartworm is whip-smart, and tightly made — a real gem”

“...like the first Silent Hill right down to the tank controls with a protagonist who looks like she stepped out of the OG Tomb Raider.”

“...a nostalgic horror game...”

About This Game

Story Synopsis

Sam, fueled by her obsession with the deaths of those close to her, researches ways to contact the dead. She stumbles down a dark internet path, finding a message board with users discussing a house in the mountains that supposedly has some connection to the afterlife. However, no one who has visited the house has ever returned. Left with seemingly no other option as her obsession consumes her, Sam seeks out the house to find out for herself - no matter the consequence.

What is Heartworm?

Heartworm is a game about the memories we keep and the ones we wish we could forget. It marries cinematic fixed camera survival-horror with low-rez, retro 3d graphics, a surreal suburban setting, and a chilling original soundtrack. These features combine with an emotional and psychologically-focused narrative to compose a nostalgia-charged love letter to late 90s genre progenitors Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and Dino Crisis. Here's what to expect:

  • The retro fixed camera survival horror game you've been longing for - with some modern improvements - by someone who is inexplicably passionate about the genre and it's origins
  • A compelling, emotional narrative
  • Target of 6-8 hours of gameplay with replayability in mind
  • Multiple endings
  • Mysterious and surreal atmosphere
  • Voice acting, in-game cutscenes, and PRE-RENDERED cutscenes
  • Emphasis on exploration, atmosphere, and puzzle solving
  • A unique combat system where our protagonist uses her camera as a weapon
  • A variety of enemy types and boss fights
  • Modern-style or tank controls as movement options, with an over the shoulder aim mechanic
  • Toggleable pixelation and retro effects faithfully inspired by the first 3D console era
  • Full controller support
  • A beautiful and haunting soundtrack
