Why Can I No Longer Buy Tin Hearts?

As you may have noticed, we recently removed Tin Hearts from sale on Steam, for now.

Why did we do this?

*Drum roll* We are now working with an incredible publisher who is helping us bring Tin Hearts to life! With their support we’re now able to realise the full vision of the game and deliver to the incredibly high standards that we demand, and you want to see. To that end, we are busy making the game even better, with additional polish, enhanced gameplay, improved performance, and more… This is an incredibly exciting development, and we will have more news to share with you all soon, including an update regarding when we intend the game to be completed.

And don’t worry, if you've already purchased the game in Early Access, you'll get the new version for free at launch!

It's been awesome to connect with so many of you who supported us during the Early Access phase and a big thank you to everyone who has provided so much valuable feedback and ideas, along with heartwarming messages of appreciation so far. So please, continue to do that as it makes a big difference to both the game and the energy we put behind making it. In time we will also share details of our publisher's Discord, which I can tell you is an awesome place to hang out in, with lots of lovely folks sharing their love of video games.

For now, stay tuned, and thank you for your continued support, it means everything.

Onward soldiers!

About This Game

Behind every brilliant invention, hides an incredible story. From members of the team that brought you Fable, comes Tin Hearts – an immersive puzzle adventure game wrapped in a powerful tale of love and compromise.

Guide a troop of mischievous tin soldiers through a magical toy-filled world using a variety of whimsical and inventive contraptions to bounce, shoot and glide them to their goal. March through 40+ levels of time-bending, soldier-routing riddles, forge new paths for your toys to follow, and solve increasingly elaborate puzzles to unravel the emotional, thought-provoking story, of Albert J. Butterworth, a genius inventor of Victorian times.


Control toy cannons to clear the way ahead, bounce to new heights using trampoline drums, and manipulate balloon inflating machines to help the soldiers reach their destination!


Discover a deeply emotional story spanning generations and dimensions, masterfully woven into the fabric of this puzzle-filled world. Clues are everywhere, seek them out and you will be rewarded with a heartfelt tale, beautifully voiced and animated over three acts.


Feel like a child in a toy store as you immerse yourself in a magical, alternate-timeline Victorian universe full of nostalgic warmth and charm.


Unlock powers to control objects in the world, from wooden blocks to drums to toy trains. Link objects in interesting ways as you build paths to the exit for your fearless tin soldiers to follow, and slowly reveal the secrets of their past.


Pause, fast-forward and rewind time to change the outcome of your actions and complete increasingly intricate puzzles.


Take your time working through the relaxing puzzles and enjoy the poignant soundtrack, from award-winning composer Matthew Chastney, whose credits include trailers for ‘JOKER’, 'Chernobyl', and 'Bridgerton'.


Experience the VR version of the game, designed exclusively from the ground up for virtual reality platforms, where players can fully immersive themselves in the beautiful world of Tin Hearts. Directly control, touch and feel the game’s mechanics, or physically move closer to take a look at the stunning environments and charming toys.


Tin Hearts is brought to life by former members of the exceptionally talented Lionhead Studios development team, responsible for the critically acclaimed Fable series.
