The Heartseed Game Development page
Over the coming weeks and months, we shall be placing more information here related to our work in creating fun, engaging and non violent video games for people of all ages. We are targeting not just the PC, but the PSvita, PS4, XBOXONE, Linux, macosX, iOS , Android and other devices as we can, as we firmly believe that all platforms deserve high quality, non violent gaming for all ages. The visuals and gameplay will not suffer , as we bring this highly entertaining , educational and fun series of games to everyone .
We are working on adventures games & platform games mainly, and our portfolio will not only offer exploring large open world areas , but also advocate for learning exciting things in the process . You can expect a fun haunted mansion to explore , a underwater sea adventure learning about marine life, learn about our universe and the possible life that exists far beyond our current telescopes in orbit in fantastic places not ruled by violence but exploration of brave new worlds on distant alien worlds, share the 'history and story' of your life by sharing with others a environment showcasing that history in a completely interactive way , and those are just the beginning of the fun and engaging products we will be bringing to you.
Our current game, " Essence ", will be a puzzle solving, platforming adventure game on a massive scale full of exciting areas to explore , where aside from a exciting world to explore in any order you wish, the designers are creating a experience for you so that every moment in the game will be memorable ,fun and challenging , where instead of fighting things and going from point a to b, you'll want to explore ever nook and enjoy the views. We are working up to making a demo video for you to see our progress, so bookmark this page ! In this meantime please enjoy this video made by CEO showcasing at least who we are and our goals for non violent video games, incentive for which came from our journey as a vegan & humanitarian and desire to want to make all our lives better and the world around us.
Stay tuned for tons of updates as we progress to further this goal, and if our ideas inspire you to assist us in creating larger teams and make all this happen that much sooner, please consider donating to our cause.
UPDATE 1: 3/19/2015: Image below shows our current Work in progress , Alpha Level 1. No texturing, trees bushes or other items yet, this is the landscape terrain process. These are extremely early stages, but we wanted this to show we have content and working hard everyday to make good progress. We are using the Unreal 4 engine. This current level is very large at 4096 x 4096 and when done will have a huge amount of exploration , with many areas to explore and quests to enjoy, all in a visually stunning world, wher instead of killing monsters or people or animals, a peaceful incredible world with large caves and enticing places to journey to , will draw you in like never before.
UPDATE 2: 3/15/2016 : Work continues consistently if slowly given its just one person at this point, but we believe in what we are doing and will continue seeking help from the huge pool of developers , and are confident that our vision of gaming going forward will attract a talented caring team, engaged and commited as we are to deliver non violent, extremely fun and rewarding gameplay. Please stay tuned, we appreciate your patience!
We are making more progress in creating videos of game footage so we can be completely transparent and assure possible donors, that we have a current real work in progress. It has been a labor of love over several months and different programs and we are excited and hopeful you feel the way we do about our goals and are willing to donate and help us achieve them, because we can't do it without your assistance. This will not represent our finished product, but we wanted to provide you this in the meantime to show we not only have goals, but are achieving them.
Please take a moment and see our GoFund.me page and make a donation if you can, because we need better hardware and software, to realize our visions and bring exciting non violent , fun to explore games to people of all ages. Feel free to make a note to us, explaining how you want the funds to be dispersed if that is your wish.
Also as a non profit organization, your donation is tax deductible , and our game (s) will be given away for free which is in keeping with our goals of reaching a Resource Based Economy, and the value of sharing with those who may have no possibility to acquire such product, given their financial circumstances ( Until such time as we evolve into a RBE )
GIven the current economic model of our country/world, we may at some point as we discuss these issues with donors and other interested parties devoted to non violent high quality games, create a alternate version of the game for a much lower priced version as compared to other 'retail' games, which as per IRS guidelines, both reasonable and legal for 501c(3) organizations. .
