The Black Heart is an 1vs1 fighting game in the tradition of Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, only more gothic and tragic.

It's about another world in a parallel dimension where the king and ruler has been murdered. A vicious creature called Final has ripped his heart where he stored all the power he used to create that world. 

Six creatures, both from our world and the other one, chase this monster to steal the heart for their own purposes, since it's told that the bearer of the heart will weild an enormous power.

The game was all made by 1 person (Andrés Borghi) through 7 years of hard work. This includes graphics, programming, story, music, sound and pretty much everything.

If you enjoy pixelated blood, fluid gameplay in Capcom style, combos, tragic and epic music, weird pictoric landscapes and complex storytelling this is the game for you!

Having recently been featured over on GameJolt, The Black Heart has seen a little renaissance as players who had never heard of it before have discovered what a great 2D fighting indie game it is. The Black Heart was originally released back in 2009 after developer Andrés Borgh had put seven years of work into it. And does it ever show!

I hate the "automatic react to player's movement" in this game. Just like Street Fighter/Mugen games and etc. Rage mode activated! Btw, good job. Its true the animation is terrifying! Ananzi so hot.

Ok this is the 5th time I've re downloaded Black heart and the message says:
Windows cannot open the folder.
The Compressed (zipped) Folder 'C:\Users\Leonardo\Downloads\The_Black_Heart_1.2.1.zip' is invalid.

That's the same response I get when I try to open it.

have you tried opening the file with winrar instead of winzip? the file has been uploaded here for a long while now. it can't get corrupted while being stored online. Besides, other people haven't had problem with it so it's a configuration problem or something on your system. I suggest to write the message it gives in google ("zip is invalid") and investigate what can cause it and how to fix it. it would be the same if I sent you personally or something.

The Black Heart is a really under-recognized game.I mean really!?!made by 1 person?!?7 years?!?Programming is hard,arts are super hard,this includes bgm,cgi,avi and wavs!!motherfucker!!This game's creator should be put on a pedestal since he cares for quality of the game from every perspective.
