Heartless (name tbd) is still in development. Check-in here for monthly updates!

Heartless Update 2 (August)

August 21, 2020

It’s been one exciting month working on Heartless.


Actually, the title is now a lie, because the very talented Tina Lu is creating the art for Heartless (sorry, the awful pun, it had to be made once)! Here’s some of her incredible concepts she’s already put together:

Heartless: Armor Sketches

Heartless: Color Palette Armor Designs

I’d tell you more about the designs, but I’m too much of a troll.

The Beginning

The second big announcement has to do with the release schedule. Deep within the infinite decision making abyss that is game development, I realized there was an opportunity to get Heartless into your hands faster. So we’re going to do the unheard of, the inconceviable, something no one has every done in the history of game development… Early Access. Not really, and while we’re on the topic, it’s probably best to not take anything I say seriously. That being said, we are, however, releasing Heartless in two parts. A prologue and a not-prologue. More complete than a Beta, but less content-full than its bigger, principal sibling. While only a taste of what Heartless will be, the prologue will still be its own complete game with a different story, cast, and challenges.

We aren’t ready to give you a release date, but it will be much sooner than you might expect!

Thanks for reading the first real monthly update of Heartless! Now that there’s more to show than a bunch of text on a Google Doc, be sure to follow us on twitter for more frequent updates!

Good Morning World / Heartless Update 1

July 20, 2020

I actually wrote this in the afternoon, so we’re already not living up to our name.

Welcome to the brand new Morning Person Games website, complete with our brand new logo! More will be added as our team grows and we have more games to show, but in the meantime I wanted a place to write longer updates that wasn’t directly to Steam or an excessive Twitter thread.

Heartless Update

There’s not a whole lot I want to share at this moment (soon™), but like I’ve said in the before, we’re going to be much more transparent while developing this game. Besides twitter, monthly updates on this very site are one of the primary ways we’ll be sharing that process! You can expect a post near the end of each month with some details on the progress we’ve made.

Perhaps this should have been update 0.5 since it’s really only an update to give you a heads up that there will be monthly updates.

Looking forward to sharing more in the following months! Stay safe out there.

P.S. There’s a hint at what we’ll announce next month in this post, but I figured I’d be a jerk and tease it rather than announce it outright.
