Title: These Robotic Hearts of Mine    

 

Although we know and respect that GG'ers love traditional girls games - we also like to bring your attention to games that are less traditional, but nonetheless cool and fun.

 

Self-described, "nomadic independent game developer" Alan Hazelden created the puzzle game -- These Robotic Hearts of Mine.   Well, of course anyone who describes themselves as a "nomadic" indie game dev peeks our interest.

 

After thinking through how to best describe and discuss the game we think Alan's own teaser does the best of job of it:

 

"A narrative-driven puzzle game, tying narrative into abstract gameplay through visual cues. A young boy and a young girl become friends and fall in love, but their relationship is changed after an encounter with a broken robot in the woods...Unravel their tale by deciphering mindbending Rubik's Cube-inspired puzzles."

 

Within each level of the game you are presented with a mechanical puzzle where you attempt to get all the hearts to align upwards in the least number of moves possible; as you level-up, you also get closer to unraveling the larger boy-girl mystery. 

 

The game's tone -- written word, visual, audio environmentals -- feels a dark, secretive and foreboding.  You almost imagine this is game that Snape's from Harry Potter lore (if he were a game dev), would have devised in his pining over Lily Evans (Potter).  http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Severus_Snape   We're not Draknek (Alan's the game dev's handle) haters though we delight in his indie games, including this one!
