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 goal is to take the next 12 months to finish this game. But remember, making games is difficult and I am creating everything including the art and music all by myself, so don't be surprised if this plan changes.”

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 October 31, 2018 - Early Access version 3.5

  • 30 boss battles (including 2 final bosses)
  • 98 gifts
  • 2 characters to play as
  • 187 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 #20 - Dual Prisma!

Heya Voids and Voidettes!

Veyerals is back in action and ready to provide some awesome updates every two weeks again!

First of all, there have been a lot of adopters during the last 30 days, and we really appreciate all of you so much. Thank you for purchasing the game and believing in us! We are also constantly checking on feedback and looking at user reviews for guidance while being on alert for bugs. It’s also been really fun to see streamers such as RockLeeSmile, Wanderbots, Bananasaurus Rex and many more playing and enjoying the game.

Without further ado, welcome to the Cardiac Event Recorder where you get a summary of what has been added in the updates. In update number 20, we unleash a new monster to love upon the void. This monster is no other than… wait, Two Prismas? Yes, enjoy Dual Prisma!



There is also an abundance of changes and tweaks, as well as bug fixes. Notable changes include the Karma reward page having a new design, Momos murder blossoms being smaller at lower levels and a bunch of bug fixes. The full update log will be posted below.

As always post in the comments if you have any suggestions, feedback or you just want to meow at me so I can meow back. <3


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 20th December 2018.

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

Early Access updated game version v3.5 -> v3.6

Content Added -
  • 1 new monsters to love! (Total: 31)
Updates and tweaks -
  • Quickplay rank xp requirements have been adjusted at the higher ranks to account for the many new battles added since the last adjustment.
  • Momo's murder blossoms are now smaller at lower levels.
  • Some of Sandrome's attacks have been changed to be even more combo friendly... again.
  • The current "True Final boss" has been made harder by adding a few new tricks for her highest two levels.
  • Monster beam attack warnings are easier to see and now appear differently than when the beams dissipate.
  • Karma reward page has a new design.
  • The HUD will become transparent if you get close to the top or bottom of the screen.
Bug Fixes -
  • Fixed an issue where Roundsaw with reduced attack speed could create an impossible to dodge wall of saws from behind.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the battle to never end even though the boss was defeated.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the game to think you have the wrong amount of gifts while checking for certain dreams.
    Corrected a few typos in some attribute and gift effect descriptions.
Coming soon -
  • Expect a new monster for the next update and a new, even True-er Final boss is in the works, but not sure when it will be ready.

    Coldest Wishes,
    The Void

TRICK OR TREAT - Happy Halloween!! - Save 30% until November 1st~!

Heya Voids and Voidettes!

Now is a good time as any to go on sale, and with this we celebrate Halloween by giving a 30% discount to The Void Rains Upon Her Heart.

As the game has increased a lot with content, quality and has had many adjustments, we feel that very soon will be a good time to increase the price in anticipation for full launch.

So that being said, now is the only time to get this game at an absolute low price. We are looking at increasing the price between $9.99 - $12.99 in the very-near-future.

A lot of you reading this will already own the game, but perhaps you may have some friends, family or content creators who would be interested, and again the game being at the cheapest would be a great time to remind them all about it.

Steam250 ranks us as the 43rd best Bullet Hell and SHMUP and also the 121st best game of 2018.
https://steam250.com/tag/bullet_hell#app/790060/The%20Void%20Rains%20Upon%20Her%20Heart

If you've made it this far, I've also got a sneaky secret announcement to make. We will be working with Galope on their next release, Ravva. The storepage where you can wishlist the game to be notified about it's launch is right here:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/945340/Ravva_and_the_Cyclops_Curse/

Thanks once again, I really hope that more people will be able to enjoy the Void over the next few days, weeks, months and hopefully years. :)

I really appreciate each and every one of you, without you this journey thus far would not have been possible.

Most of all, the biggest thank you to Veyerals for showing us what true love looks like.

So let's spread The Void Rains Upon Her Heart all over the place!

Signed,
Kitty Meow! :catpaw::nekoheart:

About This Game

Content Warning
This game explores some very heavy topics such as anxiety, depression, and suicide. This game also contains scenes of non-sexual nudity.

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!
