Girl With a Heart of - Fear the Light

Posted by Rob Rich on October 23rd, 2011

Girl With a Heart of (that's the full title, best make peace with it) tells the story of Raven, a young girl living in the dark city of Underfoot. A young girl with an artificial heart. When Underfoot is attacked by the Light's army, Raven will have to make use of her special "condition" to play a vital role in this war. What that means is a mystery (for now). How it all ends will depend on the player.

The concept behind Girl With a Heart of's world is what really caught my attention. I find the idea of a world where the presumed roles of light and darkness are reversed to be fascinating. I also enjoy a good interactive narrative, and I'm curious to see some of these choices and experience some of these "life-altering consequences" for myself. But to do that, I have to wait.

Girl With a Heart of is due out in the App Store next month (November 17th) and will carry a $2.99 price tag.

dream:scape Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: HAUNTING
dream:scape isn't so much a game as an interactive narrative. One that may be familiar and simple, but will also tug pretty hard on those heartstrings.
