Tin Hearts: Features & Mechanics

In the lead-up to the launch of Tin Hearts, we wanted to take a deep dive into the features and mechanics of this narrative puzzle adventure! Come and take a peak behind the curtain.

Embark on a trail of puzzles

Solve increasingly elaborate puzzles by controlling toy cannons to clear the way ahead, bouncing to new heights using trampoline drums, and manipulating balloon-inflating machines! With a variety of ways to solve the puzzles, there are always new and imaginative ways to help your soldiers reach their destination! Link objects in interesting ways as you build paths to the exit for your fearless tin soldiers to follow, and slowly reveal the secrets of their past.

Unravel the Story

Tin Hearts takes you through the life and journey of Albert J. Butterworth, a genius inventor and toy maker in Victorian times. Told through the subtle clues in the environment and immersive cutscenes, Tin Hearts weaves all of this into the fabric of the puzzle-filled world of the Butterworth family’s home.

Clues are everywhere, seek them out and you will be rewarded with a heartfelt tale!

Explore a magical world

Full of nostalgic warmth and charm, Tin Hearts makes you feel like a child in a toy store. Fully immersive, Tin Hearts dives you into a magical, alternate-timeline Victorian universe.

Manipulate time

Pause, fast-forward and rewind time using the Cuckoo Clock or Pocketwatch to change the outcomes of your actions or prevent danger from befalling the soldiers at all! This will help you in your goal to complete the increasingly intricate puzzles and guide the soldiers to safety.

Enjoy the memorable soundtrack

Award-winning composer, Matthew Chastney, whose credits include trailers for ‘Joker’, ‘Chernobyl’, and ‘Bridgerton’ has created a moving soundtrack for Tin Hearts, with music to warm (and sometimes break) your heart. Take your time working through the relaxing puzzles, while listening to the poignant soundtrack.
