Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I need the help of the community to make sure the final version of this game is the absolute best it can be! Everything in this game is being made by a single developer who is incredibly motivated by feedback from players. Early access is the best way to ensure that people can give that feedback while I continue to work on this game.

At this point, almost all of the planned gameplay features are available to the player and all that's left is to fill each of those features with more content. I plan on updating the game frequently with more bosses, items, and stories. As new things are added, I will look to community feedback to make sure I didn't mess anything up.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The original goal was 12 months in early access, but so much has changed during development. The initially planned scope of the game has not changed by much, but many little things were added that took longer than expected to create. I really can't make a guess as to how much longer it will take to finish, but I am proud to say that development has been very consistent since release. There has been an update to this game every 2 weeks with only one month off. There was also October where I actually updated the game with new content every single day! You can expect updates to keep coming at the usual biweekly rate until the game is finished!”

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

“You can expect the core of the game to not change much. This game will stay as a boss battle bullet-hell. However, there will be much more content added to the game.

The amount of planned content
  • 36 unique monsters + at least one alternate form for most = about 72 boss battles!
  • about 150 gifts to find
  • 5 characters to play as
  • More random story events
  • multiple endings for each character in story mode
  • tons of achievements to achieve

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As of January 31, 2019 - Early Access version 3.10

  • 33 boss battles (including 2 final bosses)
  • 106 gifts
  • 3 characters to play as
  • 196 achievements to achieve

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

“The price of this game will slowly increase as more content is added.

The price will definitely increase when this game leaves early access.”

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

“I will be looking at all the community feedback for many things.

Balance Suggestions

I'll be on the lookout for discussions involving how items and monsters are balanced. If a monster's level doesn't seem to match the skill required to beat it, I want to know about it. If a 1 star item seems to be way too good to be a 1 star, I want to hear about it.

Content Suggestions

I encourage everyone to give me their ideas for gifts or monsters. Every gift and monster in this game represents a fear, anxiety, or a coping mechanism for either. I've only had my own experiences to work from so far, but I welcome other perspectives on what is a "gift" or a "monster."

Story

This is a game that talks about some very heavy topics such as anxiety, depression, and suicide. I want to be absolutely sure that these are treated in a respectful way. That means that if someone has an issue with the way I handle a topic in the story, I want to know about it! I will take every suggestion here very seriously.”

Cardiac Event Recorder - Update #26 - Endless Nightmare!

Heya Voids and Voidettes!

It’s that time of the week and apologies for the radio silence, it’s been very hectic over here in the last few weeks… but we’re back and this time with version 4.0 of The Void Rains Upon Her Heart!

Prepare to meet Endless Nightmare, a new game mode which has you fighting as many monsters as you can until you heartbreak. Monsters will not give you gifts, but you can spend your karma to buy some after every battle. But be careful how you spend, because the price will go up after each purchase!



As it’s a new mode, it needs testing, so while it’s on the newest version, you can see it as a “beta” as we may need to make more changes and reset high scores in the future for example.

As always, feedback is most essential and we’ll be reading the forums and this post for comments and constructive criticism!

Thank you as always for your continued patience and we really hope you enjoy this new version.

Full update log below.

As a reminder:

We will post updates bi-weekly, Thursdays at 1PM PST / 4PM EST / 9PM GMT / 10PM CET. The next update will be on 28th March 2019.

Here’s the full list of changes we’ve made-

Early Access updated game version v3.11 -> v4.00

Content Added -
  • New endless game mode! (Beta version, it needs testing!)
Updates and tweaks -
  • Syncron now holds the combo during their panic phase until only the core remains.
  • You can now take 4 gifts out of the Link Synapse if you complete a certain dream.
  • Added a new highest level FC'd stat for each monster in the Monsters menu.
Bug Fixes -
  • None needed
Coming soon -
  • More improvements and achievements for Endless Nightmare!

Coldest Wishes,
The Void

We thank you so much for sticking with us and supporting us through this journey, we have so much more planned to add while listening to your input.

This week, we’ve added eight new gifts, with most of the new gifts being for the feather shots. There’s also a few small typos and errors we’ve touched up on. Sadly the new mode is not just ready just yet, it’s almost here though!

About This Game

An alien girl is trapped in a cave and surrounded by bizarre monsters. She cannot fight those creatures, but she can befriend them with the power of love! Every monster will react in its own violent way, but even the most powerful can be swayed by this ultimate power. Every defeated monster will give her gifts that make her love even stronger. Can her love grow strong enough to fend off The Void itself? Or will her heart be broken once again?

Every Battle is a Boss Battle!

This is primarily a boss-rush bullet-hell game. Each stage will present you with a random set of bosses at various difficulty levels. You must choose which battles to face along the way to the Final Boss!

Each boss has its own range of difficulty levels with different possible attacks at each level. A level 1 boss can have a completely different set of attack patterns than a level 9 version of the same boss!

They Will Give You Gifts!

After a monster has been defeated by love, it will thank you with a set of random gifts! Each gift will grant her heart an upgrade that lasts for the rest of the run. There are over 100 gifts to find!

You may not have full control over the gifts you receive, but there are ways to influence the odds in your favor.

Fulfill Your Dreams and Collect Everything!

The achievements in this game are not just for bragging rights. Earning them will unlock new features to the game! New monsters, gifts, game modes, and even playable characters are waiting to be unlocked.
