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!
