What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is still under construction and we need Early Access in order to get as much feedback as possible from the community.

We want to have the most polished game we can, and that includes tweaking gameplay mechanics and fixing bugs.

Releasing the game on Steam Early Access will give us the chance to test it on different PCs and by new gamers from all around the world.

We need to hear what the community think about the mechanics and the different modes of the game, including the first chapters of the Story Mode. Based on that, we'll work on improvements for the game and also the next chapters.

For the end of the year we want to have at least two more chapters ready and a more polished game.
And after, a final version with all six chapters ready to launch outside Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be in Early Access for two or three months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The version on Early Access only contains 2 of 6 chapters in the Story Mode.

The final version will have all 6 chapters in the Story Mode, as well as an additional playable character (unlockable after finishing the campaign).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early Access includes the 6 playable characters, but only 2 of them have their chapters ready for the Story Mode.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We may raise the price for the final version, it will depend on how much money we need to invest in order to fix the bugs and improve the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We're going to listen to the community so we can improve the game together, and tweak and fix all the things we can.

The game already has a story and gameplay bases defined, but by listening to the community will allow us to have a more polished version of the game for everyone.

We'll use the Discussions section of the game on Steam to get in touch with the community, and we'll be also available at our official social networks of Facebook and Twitter.”

About This Game

The Black Heart is an 1vs1 fighting game in the tradition of Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat.

It's about another world in a parallel dimension where the king and ruler has been murdered. A vicious creature called Final has ripped his heart where he stored all the power he used to create that world.

Six creatures, both from our world and the other one, chase this monster to steal the heart for their own purposes, since it's told that the bearer of the heart will weild an enormous power.

The game was all made by 1 person (Andrés Borghi) through 7 years of hard work, including graphics, programming, story, music, sound and pretty much everything. This new release celebrates the 10 year aniversary, updating the game to modern specs and with visual and audio improvements.

If you enjoy pixelated blood, fluid gameplay in Capcom style, combos, tragic and epic music, weird pictoric landscapes and complex storytelling this is the game for you!
