Push Square’s Liam Croft interviewed renowned developer Armature Studio (ReCore, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Dead Star) about upcoming PlayStation-exclusive Where the Heart Is, the surreal journey through one man’s past where he will reevaluate a lifetime of important decisions.
As players walk through Whit Anderson’s entire lifetime alongside him, dozens of crucial choices must be faced—each changing the road ahead in some way:
Croft: How much of an impact will your choices have on the story? Will there be lots of different narrative paths leading to various endings?
Armature Studios: A lot, and yes! First off, there are two kinds of choices in the game: narrative color choices and large-scale choices that affect the story arc. Narrative color choices flavor the style of path you are on. These check against each other and work to maintain the character you are developing with unique dialogue and other subtle reinforcements throughout.
Where the Heart Is will explore greener pastures on PlayStation 4 in late 2020. Check out Push Square’s full interview here. For more information on Where the Heart Is, visit Armature Studio’s official website or follow @ArmatureStudio on Twitter and Instagram.
