Armature Studio’s PlayStation-exclusive Where the Heart Leads is out now on PS4 and PS5 via backward compatibility.
We previously covered Where the Heart Leads on Game Freaks 365. If you are unfamiliar with the game, it is a surreal narrative journey through one man’s past from AAA veterans Armature Studio.
In this game, you explore thousands of different narrative paths as Whit Anderson, who unwittingly steps back in time to discover how certain events in his life can be altered. Navigate the emotional ups and downs of adolescence: first love, second chances, and the joyful terrors of parenthood. Rewrite Whit’s life story from start to finish, or try to retrace his steps back to the present.
Make hundreds of choices across a 600,000-word script that rivals five novels or the biggest AAA RPGs. Many of your choices can unexpectedly set Whit’s life on a new path. Witness how seasons, years, and consequences shape Carthage, a small town with a colorful cast and a memorable history.
“As we wrote this story, we realized we were sharing bits and pieces of our own lives in all the ways Whit’s journey can be told,” said Todd Keller, the director at Armature Studio. “In the end, Where the Heart Leads became more about finding each other than finding home. In writing their own story, I hope players feel inspired to reconnect with loved ones. It’s never too late, and it’s never been more important.”
Where the Heart Leads is now available for $24.99 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility. Perp Games’ special physical edition includes exclusive physical and digital content such as two physical postcards, a digital artbook, and the digital soundtrack.
