Get ready for a magical and heart-warming puzzle adventure with Tin Hearts, the latest game from publisher Wired Productions and developer Rogue Sun. This is a game about a group of sentient tin soldiers as they journey through a magical toy-filled world, and it is promising a lot.
Filled with more than 40 levels of challenging puzzles, Tin Hearts encourages players to use their imagination and problem-solving skills to guide the soldiers through each level. Along the way, players will encounter a variety of grandiose toy-based structures and items throughout the environment, including toy cannons, trampoline drums, and balloon-inflating machines, which can be used in unique ways to guide your little soldiers to their intended locations.
But Tin Hearts isn’t just about puzzle-solving. The game also features what we are being promised is a deeply emotional story about love and compromise, told through fully voiced and animated cutscenes over three acts.
In addition to the main campaign, Tin Hearts also includes virtual reality support. In this mode, players can fully immerse themselves in the game’s world, directly control and touch in-game mechanics, and experience these tailor-made environments with a whole new level of perspective.
If the development studio, Rogue Sun, doesn’t ring a bell yet, expect them to become a developer of note, as they are comprised of former members of the talented Lionhead Studios development team (Fable etc).
With all of its engaging puzzles, emotional story, and immersive VR-specific features and compatibility, you can pick up Tin Hearts when it launches on April 20, 2023, for PlayStation 4 PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (via Steam).
