About This Game

Every Ending Has a Beginning
Meet Prin, a budding intergalactic rebel conscripted into performing the remarkably dangerous boots-on-the-ground work of eliminating the hostile infestations standing between the Manifest Company and their interplanetary investments. Train and battle your way through unknown perils across alien worlds to complete your missions, earn your keep, and awaken deep powers within…


  • Activate Heart Links - Rescue and befriend colorful critters across new worlds to activate your Heart Link System and acquire up to four unique power suites: dash, float, grapple, and slide.
  • Master Movesets - Race against the clock to medal in over 25 increasingly challenging trials designed to hone your abilities to the extreme. Demonstrate those skills on the battlefield and Prin might just earn Employee of the Month!

  • Strategize Your Respawn Beacons - Use your limited number of self-placed respawn beacons to mark your own checkpoints. Ride the delicate balance of respawn pod economy and distance traveled.
  • Explore Never-Before-Seen Worlds - With the Manifest Company poised at the edge of a galaxy ripe for exploration and exploitation, the fate of 6 uncharted planetoids is in your hands.

  • Fight Off Alien Bosses - Guide Prin deeper into unknown territory as you vaporize apex alien predators and blast away the persistent varmints rampantly infesting every crevice of the star system!
  • Unravel the Manifest Company’s Motivations - Interact with Unkle Boss, Gene, and the rest of the crew back at the Company’s hub ship to brush up on your skillset mastery, scope out new missions, and get to the bottom of the Company’s rapid expansion.
  • Experience Modern Gameplay with an Arcade Feel - Easy to pick up but difficult to master, Star Hearts: Launch Point pairs vibrant, 8-bit nostalgia with intense action at up to 144 frames per second!

A Pixel-Perfect Love Letter to NES
Visually reminiscent of classic titles like Mega Man and Super Mario Bros., Star Hearts: Launch Point is an entirely handcrafted experience, featuring the vibrant color palette of the Nintendo Entertainment System, completely hand drawn animation and level design, and zero rotation, scaling, or bone rigging.
