What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Loathing Heart is an experimental gaming experience.
It is created to make the players think and reflect themselves. We have been giving our best to create an experience which enables our players to do this, however, who would know better than the players themselves of course. We hope to be able to improve the experience with the help of our community and therefore to create the best possible experience for everyone.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are expecting to be able to develop the game very quickly. We would like to collect the feedback from our community, apply all wanted changes and once this is done leave early access.
The estimated time to leave early access is after one and a half month of feedback.”

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

“All additional features are depending on the community and the feedback we receive. The game is in a very stable and finished state. So everything that is missing are improvements which the community wants. A description of the features and gameplay which are already implemented in the current version of this game can be found in the "about this game" section.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in a very good state. Everything works just as expected and the way we imagined it. However, since it is very experimental there might be some features and gameplay that will be better in one or another way. Only our community will know. A description of the features and gameplay which are already implemented in the current version of this game can be found in the "about this game" section.”

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

“The price might change a little if there is a lot of work in order to change the game. Otherwise, the price will stay the same. We currently do not expect a price change.”

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

“All changes and improvements are community driven. The only people who truly know how to make the experience better and more engaging ar the once who play the game. For feedback or questions, you can contact us via Email or via the community page.”

Understand one's Feelings


Loathing Heart is a very experimental game which is designed to put you in the shoes of someone else and to give you a deeper inside of their mind and thoughts.
The storytelling is supported by the main game mechanic which changes slightly yet significantly over time…
Besides a lot of other things game contains critics of our general social system and raises the questions of how we treat other people and in how far we create our own enemies.
The game also contains 3 acts. With every act changes the pace, general mood, and design of the whole environment.
The further you get the more you will understand what is going on…
