Based in Mexico City, developer Alonso Martin is the guy behind Heart Forth, Alicia. He manage to fund the development with a very successful Kickstarter campaign.
At Heart Forth, Alicia‘s core is an ode to the classics. Remember the electrifying gameplay of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the devious dungeons of the Zelda series, and the rich, engaging story of Xenogears? This game was born with those experiences in mind. Most importantly, it’s an epic Metroidvania RPG that combines timeless 16- and 32-bit gameplay, modern mechanics, and a set of unique, intertwining stories to take you on a fantastic journey.
After a very interesting update regarding the game development status, Alonso announced that the game is going to be released in the second half of 2016 on PC/OSX/Linux, PS4, PS Vita and Nintendo Wii U
The Game was also recently distinguished with an Honorable Mention for its Excellence in Audio by the Independent Games Festival (IGF).
