A Stroll Through Your Past
Stories with alternate paths and endings are always very interesting. So today’s news of PlayStation exclusive Where the Heart Leads has the potential to be something amazing. Revealed during PlayStation Indie Day, Where the Heart Leads is a story of “what if”. After a near death experience, you’re drawn into a strange reality where you can alter the course of your destiny. Honestly, the PR says it best below:
One stormy night, family man Whit Anderson brushes with death and finds himself in a surreal, dreamlike world. As moments from his past, present, and future come into focus, Whit finds he can do it all over, make different choices, and send his life in a new direction. In this experience of a lifetime, make thousands of choices en route to dozens of endings and discover whether the grass is greener, where home truly lies, and whether fate can change.
Slated to release on PS4 and PS5 on July 13th, Where the Heart Leads has a lot of narrative potential. It’s also promised a physical edition courtesy of Perp Games, on the same day as the digital release. The digital copy is going to be $24.99, though no price is given yet for the physical edition.
If you’re still not sold, read this quick quote from the director for the game:
“The lives we lead are tangled—countless unseen threads chronicle our story,” said Todd Keller, director, Armature Studio. “Where the Heart Leads tugs on these knots, inviting players to reflect on where they’ve been, where they’re going, and what’s most important, even when life is frightening and the road uncertain.”
Where the Heart Leads could certainly be a welcome exclusive for the newborn PS5. Be sure to stay tuned to HPP for more Sony news as it rolls around.
