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!

Final is probably one of the most terrifying monstrosities I have seen in a game. That guy is creepy.

Having some problems with the move list. When opening the text file all i see is;

<html>

<head>
<style type="text/css">
body {
background-color: darkred;
background-image: url('files/tile.jpg');
background-repeat: repeat;
background-position: top left;
}
.centered {
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
text-align: center;
}
img {
border: none;
padding: 2px;
}
</style>
</head>

<body>
<div class="centered">
<img src="files/chars/ananzi/ananzi.jpg" />
<img src="files/chars/animus/animus.jpg" />
<img src="files/chars/hashi/hashi.jpg" />
<img src="files/chars/noroko/noroko.jpg" />

If I owned a gaming company I would help you to remake this game and put it on consoles, because that's what this game deserves. Best Fighting Game EVER!!!

Quick question though. Is there anyway I can use my 360 controller for this game?

Perhaps I can clarify that for you. I managed to set up both my controllers to play with my friends, and it's very easy. You just need to connect the controllers and go to options mode and config joystick. Make sure to save before leaving options menu.

This game is great. Me and my friends enjoyed it. The only problem is that we suck at this kind of game. Nice job guys.

Loving every second of this game. By far one of the best indie games I've gotten the privilege to play on my LetsPlay channel! Of course, here's a link if you wanna check out my buddy and I flail aimlessly at each other in this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWp-WZmmqnE

Andres, I seriously enjoyed this game, and it's not lacking in any details! I applaud your efforts, this game is well worth a $20 price tag, yet you hand it out free! ^_^ When I can, I will definitely be donating through your website. More power to amazing indie developers!

hahha! that video was great! thanks a lot!
you should really check the files "READ - basic commands.txt" and "movelist.htm" within the game's folder. there you have all the info you need.
The reason why the game is free is that the engine I used doesn't allow people to sell the material. Really shitty, I know. But is ok. people enjoy it.
take care!
