It's a beautiful game, and I enjoyed the demo. Love the characters, the idea, and I enjoyed all of the little quirky jokes as well. Cannot wait to see the full version! <3

This game was great! I loved the characters and the concept and can't wait to see more of the game.
I made a video on the game, giving my thoughts on the game as well:
im crying. thats so deep. great job guys [*]let us save that lil pupper[*]
so when do you think the full game will come out,cant wait to record it for a video
I DIDN'T REALIZE IT WASN'T THE FULL GAME. I'M SO SADDD ASJSDDFLAIEHVNSDL. Wonderful game though, I can not WAIT for the full version!!
incredible, simply incredible
This game is so faantastic! I can not wait for the full game! Made a video, hope you enjoy!
i played and i really want the full game out
i loved this game so much it's a grate story and mechanics!!!
I loved this game so much!! I can't wait for the full game to come out :)
I'm already hooked on this game!! As soon as I got to the first save point I was thinking about how muhc time I could possibly spend playing it.
If you're a fan of Undertale you'll love this. The charming personality of the character drags you in and you can't help but fall in love with Lore and his dog Baron.
Gameplay is full of puzzles and keeps you engaged the whole time. Love the whole thing!!
The story is addicting from the get-go and I already can't wait to see where this leads!!!
This is amazing. The comparisons to Undertale are inevitable, but that's just because you
made (are making) an amazing game that seems to be doing a lot of the same things right.
Unique gameplay in an rpg (unique in the genre and unique from Undertale), interesting
story, and great audio/visuals.
Can't wait for the full game!
I love it!!!!!!!!
The only thing that I think could be better is slightly better dialogue, and A COMPLETE STORY!
Sorry, I'm just in the edge of my seat for the rest of the game.
This was so awesome! Great characters, unique style and I can’t wait for the full release!!
This game is AMAZING. I love Baron and Lore and legitimately care for them. I also love the little drops of depression in between that makes you wary of Lore. The music is soothing and the design of the game really blends to the music.
I hope I'll be able to play the full game ( I'm just a poor frog afterall).
Hey! Absoulutly loved this game! I really got a Undertale vibe from all of it! I just posted a let's play of this Awesome game too! Can't wait for the full release!
When is this game coming out?!?!?!?!
I HAD AN AMAZING TIME PLAYING THIS!! I plan to do a full playthrough when it comes out. Keep up the amazing work!
Nice game! Where do you make the game?
Its like Undertale, but also lotta Hyper Light Drifter inspiration! Cant wait for the full game to come out!!
I can't describe how much I absolutely love this game. At first it reminded me of Undertale, and it still does, but it is so unique in so many ways. The battle system is a bit confusing at first but very atmosspheric and interactive; the artstyle is absolutely gorgeous. The soundtrack is beutiful and the inventorty ststem is exceptional. I would not hesitate to buy this game as soon as the full one is released.
I might have found the game of all games, one that reaches into my childhood and reminds me of Earthbound. With it's sprinklings of the feelings of Undertale, this is a big deal for sure!
just got the game it looks like undertail #exicited
I cannot WAIT for the full version!!
Excellent, simply excellent. I've been looking into to trying the demo for a few days now and I'm very happy that I had the chance to experience it.
The game looks great, the art and visual design is quite charming and the animations are smooth. Music and sound are also fantastic and suite the game very well. It's very easy to tell that there's been a lot of time and love put into how the game looks and sounds.
Despite only being a small chunk of the game, the demo introduces us to the main characters which I found to be quite interesting and unique, the dialogue is well written and the characters work well together.
I was actually quite sad when the demo was over as I was really getting into the game, this is truly a unique experience and one that I'm happy I got to enjoy. If the demo is anything to go off of, the game is going to be fantastic when it releases, and I'm looking forward to the day that it does.
I hope you don't mind, but I recorded a let's play of the demo for my channel.
Cheers and best wishes to you.
Posted this let's play a while ago, but it's so neat to see Heartbound here on Itch.io! Beautiful art style and lovely narrative, I can't wait for the full release of the game! Thank you so much for releasing the demo :D
This game was fun and I played it a second time and kept flickering the light in the hallway till it BUSTED.
This game is amazing! The characters have great, well... character! They have intriguing personalities and good dialogue. I have played more than an hour of this game but I feel that there is still more content that I haven't found. The environment is well made and the boss fights were fun! I also love how you can easily shape Lore by making certain decisions to change certain details in the dialogue and the environment. 10 / 10 Demo in my book. Keep up the good work! Btw will you be posting updates to the demo for more game-play or will you be keeping additional content private?
There are tons of secrets and multiple endings even in the demo.
Good luck finding them!
That being said, thank you so much for your kind words.
We actually stream game development on Twitch 7 days a week 5 hours a day and run an extremely active discord community for our games.
The Demo will receive one more planned content update before our full launch.
I love it! I almost cried a couple times. I want my dog back! Then I got too into it, and forgot it was just a demo, and was kinda frustrated when it cut off. I can't wait to see more! I'm going to write about it and tell everyone I know about it.
Definitely join up in the Discord and come hang during our DevStreams!
Really glad you like Heartbound so much! <3
great animations and characters really like this game idea, here is my playthrough
It's me again,
I found the solution... I apologize I thought there was supposed to be an inventory.
There isn't so now I'll continue playing!
Hi there, I'm stuck and I don't even know how to exit the game. I'm running the game on Windows 10.
So I got the axe from the garden went back to bed , woke up and the dog has disappeared with visible traces of monsters everywhere. There is a trunk blocking my path so I wanted to use the axe but I don't know how to access the inventory. I saved the game, went back to bed but found myself with the same problem... What shall I do? Thanks, so far I love it but it's too soon to give an opinion...
Hey buddy, are you going to get it out in Spanish?
This is not working under Win XP :D
I found this game inspired heavy by Earthbound/Mother. Maybe i'm wrong and, just have that type of nostalgic feel but, it had elements just like that game while also being something new and, entirely refreshing on it's own! The demo felt short but, looking back on my recordings with both parts is almost a whooping hour! This is a game you truly have fun with and, forget how much time has passed and, only in the demo stage!
I enjoyed how you could interact with a ton of objects. My only little pip would be the box in Lore's room and, the doll? I think I got it after I died? Thought there would be a bit of text to them but, was none. I thought the sock collecting "mini game" was hilarious and, thoughtful even though i'm not sure the reason Lore wants socks!
The puzzles were easy enough which I thank you immensely! I'm not big on puzzles and, hate sinking time into them to try to progress story.
Long story short you got me craving more! I'll be watching this development like a hawk waiting for more content!
I tried the demo out and had a lot of fun with it.
The gameplay during the boss fight was quite interesting; although, the controls were a tad awkward due to having to switch between the mouse and arrow keys so quickly. I'm sure it just takes some getting used to, so I didn't mind it too much.
I found the music to be quite charming and mellow. I just wish I could hear more of it as I was really fond of the library BGM.
Asides from that, I like what I see so far. It's graphically pleasing and I see a lot of hard work put into the animations. Making sprite animations has always seemed difficult to me, so it's amazing to see how many there are in the game. Overall, great job and best of luck with development!
Thanks for the kind words! You can use the WASD keys in place of arrow keys if that suits you more and the game also has full controller support which changes combat dramatically. If you'd like to hear more of the music check out our streams on Twitch or the soundtrack on YouTube!
Love the video, you rock!
a really great demo i played a while back and i really cant wait for the whole game
A new update will be coming out soon.
Have to make some changes to Act 1 to make things fit into the rest of the game.
An excellent demo for what I hope will be an excellent game!!
(shared this on gamejolt but wanted to share it here as well)
