Early Access Game

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

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After about a year of development and a budget of microscopic proportions, this game is finally at a stage where most of the features are set and people are actually willing to pay for it. Now 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 Early Access v3.0

  • 27 boss battles (including 2 final bosses)
  • 64 gifts
  • 2 characters to play as
  • Over 100 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 #17 - Solon Plays!

Heya all!

I would like to open this up with an apology for the delay - Sadly Veyerals old HDD died but fortunately he managed to salvage everything before that dreaded moment. A reminder to everyone to make sure you have spare backups and that you keep some space free! (Never fill the drives up to maximum capacity and keep ‘em out the red!)

I wanted to quickly plug a YouTube channel before we get into the meat of this update, this creator goes by the name of SolonFace and has been making a whole plethora of videos on the game. I’ve watched through most of them and love his personality as well as the wonderful guest Quincy who he duos with. I’ve actually stuck around beyond these videos and enjoy his other videos too! (Like, comment and subscribe! XD)

If you created any content or videos for Void or have any streams planned upcoming, please do let us know so we can watch and get involved in the fun!

In this update, we’ve added two new special events including the huggable Scrambla and the hot headed Boiler. You can offer to give them your gifts and they’ll let you pick them up at the start of another run or you can also choose to save them until you have saved up for your very own SUPER SPICY combo!

In the month of October, Veyerals (dev) will be taking on a challenge of adding a new gift a day! This challenge is not limited to just gifts though and may even see surprise Monsters join the frey! This should keep you surprised and entertained throughout all of October unless he gives in to the Void.

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

About This Game

An alien girl is trapped in a cave and surrounded by bizarre monsters. She can not 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?

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

Gameplay

The Void Rains Upon Her Heart is primarily a boss-rush bullet-hell game. As such, there are no stages with small enemies to get though, only boss battles!


Each boss has its own range of difficulty levels which can accommodate all skill levels from "completely new to shmups" all the way to "I'm pretty good at shmups." A level 1 boss can have a completely different set of attacks than a level 9 version of the same boss!

A playthrough of Story Mode consists of several randomly chosen battles in a row with a final boss waiting at the end. Each monster will give you at least one random gift that permanently powers you up for the rest of the run. If your heart's health ever runs out, then your heart will break and you will be sent back to the beginning. Oh, and your health does not refill after each battle, unless a gift heals you. You will need a combination of skill and luck to make it through this!

There is also a Quickplay Mode, where you can battle any boss at any level and equip any gifts that you have found. You can use this mode to practice any high level battles that give you trouble in story mode, or you can go for high scores and earn medals.

Don't forget the Secret Mode where you can give up and throw yourself into the eternal emptiness of the Void!
