PlayStation Network Releases, November 8th: Where Is My Heart?, Rayman Origins Demo

A PSmini that speaks from the heart, a game that speaks beautiful 2D sprites, and so much more with the November 8th, 2011 edition of the PlayStation Network Releases.

Some say, it’s the heart that matters. And it’s also what matters most in one of the more unique, and incredibly cute looking, PlayStation Mini’s to grace the PlayStation Network this week. Created by indie developer Die Gute Fabrik, Where is my Heart? is touching 2D platformer, available for free to all PlayStation Plus subscribers (and coming soon to all for $6.99 on November 22nd), based on the personal experiences of Bernie Schulenburg.

He’s one of core designers behind Where is my Heart?, and it’s his sombering memories of a recent hiking trip that left him and his parents lost in the middle of the woods that became the influencing building blocks for this peculiar game. Without a single clue on how to find their way back, Bernie soon came face-to-face with not only his own negative shortcomings as a person, but his parent’s bad traits as well. As Bernie puts it, the whole ordeal was quite sad and disorienting;  a theme that was carried over to the design of Where is my Heart?, in which, you help a family of monsters forge through a massive enchanted forest as they search for their lost Heart Tree.

Basically, much of the screen to this puzzle-sidescroller is divided into sections — sort of like a sliding-tile puzzle — where every frame shows an individual location. Further adding to that confusion, each panel throughout every stage of Where is my Heart? is consistently rearranging themselves, mimicking the very same feeling of being lost and full of despair that one might feel in such the same predicament. Obviously, such a poetic concept is rarely present in your average game, so for those lucky enough to have a PS+ account are in for a real creative treat that likes of which the PlayStation Network is known for.

Though don’t you go fussing non-premium users of the PlayStation Network, because another awesomely ambitious 2D title has a demo up for you to try and I wholly recommend you check it out. Rayman Origins. Fully hand-drawn and bursting with zany cartoon spunk, this upcoming Ubisoft game releasing next week on November 15th is nothing less short of a 2D masterpiece. Better yet it’s being lead designed by Michel Ancel — you know, the guy who also made Beyond Good & Evil — so expect whimsy on top of more whimsy served with tight controls and smart level design.

I haven’t gotten around to try it out myself, but word on the street is that Rayman Origins can’t be beat; a game that any platform aficionado should have on their upcoming gaming cue.
