I’m a console gamer through and through, and while that leaves very little to be desired, there are times when I deeply envy PC gamers and their indie exclusives. I own a clunky little thing that barely passes for a laptop, so it’s not often I get to experience the good stuff on PC.
Heart Forth, Alicia is one of those rare games that makes me envy PC gamers, and in record time the game was able to achieve its $60,000 goal. It’s a game that will make any gamer who grew up during the Nineties all giddy inside with excitement. It’s a gorgeous looking sprite-based Metroidvania epic, that is not only ambitious and creative in its design and art, but just as much with its approach to storytelling — which sounds downright special.
In the latest update published, it appears that given the unexpected and swift success of the Kickstarter campaign, a few new stretch goals have been introduced, one of them being a PlayStation 4 version of the game.
You can check out the update regarding the PS4 version of the game, and if you’re new to Heart Forth, Alicia then you definitely want to read up. Here’s hoping future stretch goals include Vita, Wii U, and Xbox One versions.
