A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

This project is on (perhaps eternal) hold right now with no full release planned, but enjoy the demo nonetheless!

About Cold Hearts

Made by two streamers and game dev enthusiasts: Outstar, ex-CD Projekt Red (Witcher 3), The House of Fables (Eventide) and Memoriesin8bit (Tower of Guns, DXX-Rebirth).

We aimed for using funny premise to create a story-rich game with various paths and numerous choices to be made.

Engine: Ren'Py
Code/implementation: Memoriesin8bit
Artwork: Outstar
Writing: Outstar & Memoriesin8bit
Music: Outstar, Alex Krasnicki

What's the demo?

Demo contains first 3,5 days of in-game time, introducing the player to most of the main characters and appliances he/she can pursue romantically.

Apart from five main romance paths this demo teases, final release will have one more romanceable character (introduced later in the game, depending on character's choices) and one hidden romance path as an unlockable reward.

Demo doesn't contain collectibles (fridge magnets & image library) that will be included in the final release. Additionally, demo teases text message system that we're in process of implementing: in final release, player will be able to check his phone anytime, read past messages and choose the answer.

We encourage you to share your opinions, record and stream this demo - if you stumble upon any bug/issue, let us know!

Replying to this comment feels like necroposting ;P

Does not work for me ._.

I start it up and hear music but the game does not actully show up on my moniter, i want to play but I can't even see the game!

Hey Augie, can you let me know what system are you on/your PC specs? Feel free to contact me via Twitter @outstarwalker - we really want to help you out! :)

I figured it out. My laptop and monitor are not completely compatible so I had to make the main monitor not my laptop. Thanks though for trying to help :D

super funny!

This is hilarious, great job!

This game looks really promising. The dialog choices are excellent and make sense in each situation, and I really enjoyed the touches of comedy.  All of the characters are intriguing and distinct, making each character come alive.  I can't wait for the full game to come out :)
