Developer Ice-Pick Lodge has released a trailer to announce the availability from Know by hearthis latest effort, made in a completely autonomous way.
We are talking about the team that gave us cult titles such as Pathologic and The Void, just to name the best known.
The video shows the particular style of the game, tending towards realism, through some sequences of gameplay. It also makes us understand the tones of adventure, decidedly dramatic and intimate, made up of sequences with photos to be reconstructed, walks in the rain and encounters with other characters, as well as tragic events.
Let’s read the official description by Know by heart for more details:
Know by Heart is a game about knowing how to lose. The storyline, the music, the intuitive gameplay and atmospheric mini-games intertwine to weave the illusion of a brief return to one’s childhood, followed by the inevitable growth, with the feeling of time slipping through our fingers.
Players will be immersed in the quiet life of a provincial Russian town where traces and memories of the Soviet era can still be seen and heard.
Misha, the protagonist, is stuck in his work, monotonous and with no way out, until, one day, the routine is shattered, when his sweetheart of the times of the school returns to the village. For the first time in several years, Misha finds hope that she can escape the boredom of his daily life. A brief but tumultuous episode in the life of the town is intertwined with the story of a gang of childhood friends who reunite. It will be up to them to retrace the paths of memory and rekindle their friendship, but the memories of the past and their own bonds are in danger …
Know by heart is only available for PC.
