The lead developer of Heart Forth, Alicia has confirmed that the game will release on PS4 and Vita in early 2016.
Developed by Alonso Martin, Heart Forth, Alicia is a Kickstarter funded project which is being described as a “Story-driven Metroidvania RPG about a young wizard on her journey to stop a Spirit from consuming her homeland”. The game is inspired by the gameplay of 90s adventure games such as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and the dungeon style of the Zelda series.
Martin explains “These two things are seldom packaged together in Metroidvanias, so I took it upon myself to make a game where the player can enjoy both the fun, open-ended exploration experience with upgrades and unlockables, and the excitement of taking part in an epic storyline like those in some of my favourite Square games of the late ‘90s.”
Heart Forth, Alicia will be shown in public for the first time at GDC this week, keep an eye out for more news on this game in the future.
