Summary

Where The Heart Leads is a beautiful game full of rich engrossing story and slight puzzle elements. The actual gameplay is quite minimal but the story does such an amazing job of hooking you in, the way they animate memories and encounters is so unique and pleasing on the eye. I found myself just getting completely lost in the vibrant world and absorbing everything. I had to force myself to stop playing otherwise I would have just consumed it all in one go. OK you won’t be replaying the game a lot as its not that kind of thing, Where The Heart Leads is not a game it’s an experience and one you want to experience. Just beautiful.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
