Set your heart on it
Top Hat Studios has announced plans to bring their retro/futuristic visual novel Vengeful Heart to the Switch, and it’s coming out later this month. The game, which features a rich story and a healthy dose of social commentary, will be priced at $10. For full details on this game, check out the press release below.
**In Vengeful Heart you take the role of Josephine Lace, a young hydraulic engineer living in a world where water has become as scarce as liquid gold, and the poor masses are forced to cope with a permanent shortage. Josephine is eager to climb the corporate ladder to improve her living conditions, but a bad twist of fate slams her against the cold, muddy basement of the homeless life. Soon, she becomes hellbent on taking down the system that ruined her and starts looking for more broken hearts to achieve her promised revenge. Will this crazy plan help Josephine get the redemption she longs for?
Experience a unique story rich in social commentary with both grim and humoristic undertones, widely inspired by anime series/movies from the late 80s such as Bubblegum Crisis and Akira — any resemblance to real life is purely coincidental.
Face the consequences of your decisions in a story that branches with widely different outcomes.
Destroy the oligarchy in style: our personal colorful aesthetic will remind you of PC-98. Experience a post-industrial future when the thing we take most for granted - water - becomes liquid gold..
Listen to a wonderfully immersive synthwave soundtrack that will make you nostalgic for a time that never was.**
