A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Android

In Heart Strings you guide a passive character towards their fate by tugging on their Heartstrings. Use the heart on their sleeve to pull them through the levels, or throw it through the air to untangle their pathway or warm up their ice cold surroundings. Don't keep them apart from their heart for too long, or they will become sorrowful and be unable to continue without its return.

Heart Strings is a short atmosphere experience for one player, created during Global Game Jam 2013 by a team of 5.
