Where Is My Heart Hits The PlayStation NetworkNext Week, An Ingenious Puzzler

“Where is my Heart?” is a new game from Die Gute Fabrik that is very different than most games you’ll find these days. It’s the first title to come from the developer, and it’s going to easily break the mold.

When trying to describe the game, Bernie Schulenburg from the development team recalled moments from his own past:

The idea to make Where-is-my-Heart? finds its origins in a very personal experience I had with my mother and my father three summers ago. It was a sunny day on a weekend and we decided to go for a hike in the woods. The hike went well enough for a while, but after an hour or so we realized that somehow we’d completely lost our bearings. Stuck together and lost in this situation, we came to face each other’s negative personality traits. My father showed his anxiety and became increasingly bossy. While my mother responded to this as she had been doing for the 25 past years of her partnership – she turned to lamenting about her life and her existence. I, for my part, found myself trapped in well-worn patterns of regret, remorse, and disconnectedness. Here were three hurt children-at-heart, unable to understand each other and unable to break out of their predicament.

You can see the game in its official trailer below, and I urge you to do so. The gameplay in Where is my Heart? combines platforming, with a new style of puzzle adventure that has players spinning tiles to create a new version of each level to explore. It will truly take some cunning to make it through the story in this little indie title, and I think it will soon become a great hit. Check out the trailer, and get ready for the game when it arrives next week.
