What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Tin Hearts plays out over a total of 3 Acts. Our Early Access build is Act 1 and it is about 3 hours of gameplay.

We are hoping our vision for the game, as captured in Act 1, will resonate with you and we'd love for you to join us on the journey to completing development on Acts 2 and 3.

There are many features we have planned that we'd love to get your input on. We'd also love to get your feedback based on your experience completing Act 1.

During Early Access, we're planning to be actively sharing builds showcasing the future content and improvements on the existing content, collecting feedback from the community and acting on that feedback.

We can't wait to show you what we've put together so far and we look forward to shaping the rest of the game with you!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We believe we'll be in Early Access for about 9 to 12 months. During this time we'll be actively sharing the roadmap with the community and prioritise features and improvements based on your feedback.”

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

“The final game will have 2 additional Acts of roughly the same size as Act 1 (the Early Access build). These will take place in entirely new locales, they will advance the story and they will feature mechanics that will dramatically change up the gameplay.

Act 1 (Early Access build) is about 3 hours of gameplay. All 3 Acts will take about 9 hours to complete.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access build contains the first 3 hours of the game at nearly finished quality - excluding any issues or feedback our community might raise.

While it reflects the opening of our story, it is a polished, rewarding and complete experience in its own right. Think of Act 1 as the first episode in a 3 part episodic series.”

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

“Our Early Access build contains about 1/3rd of the content we have planned for the full game. The current pricing reflects that.

By purchasing the game during its Early Access, you are enabling its future development, while at the same time getting a big discount on the full game! Win win! :)”

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

  • We will be actively engaging with the community on the Steam forums, social channels and Discord.
  • We are hoping to make improvements on the core gameplay based on players' feedback.
  • We will be sharing preview builds showcasing future content for players to feedback on.
  • We will be prioritising development of future features based on input from the community.
  • We will be sharing our roadmap and be transparent with the development.
  • Ultimately, we are making a game for like minded people so we can't wait to make many friends along the way!

Updated controls for Vive wands

Updated controls are now live for the Vive wands! The default controls now use swipes on the touchpad to rotate blocks, and smooth movement is done via pressing rather than just touching the touchpad. This means that you can now move, teleport and control time whilst holding blocks and makes the block rotation much more reliable. By request there is also the option for 'toggle possession', where the first trigger press will pick up a block, and a second trigger press will release it.

We look forward to hearing how you find these new controls and, of course, the old controls are still available in the options should you wish to switch back.

Thanks for playing!

Great first week and new update is live

It's a week since launch and we've been super busy! We've had some great reviews:

VR Focus

And also lots of great feedback from the community, both here and on our Discord server.

Thanks to this we have a new update live which adds new options for height adjustment, turning off the time effect vignette effect, and for resetting the player to the starting position. Plus bug fixes for detecting room scale on Oculus Rift, a problem with saving progression, missing collision, subtitle appearance and more.

Of course, we're not resting on our laurels and currently we're testing improved control layouts for use with Vive wand controllers as well as some further fixes and polish to audio.

Thank you!

“Sometimes it’s easy to tell almost straight away when you’re going to enjoy a VR experience, and Tin Hearts achieves just that.”
