30 Day Video Game Challenge Day One - Very First Video Game
Heart of Darkness ( 1998 )
Heart of Darkness is a 2d sidescroller in the vein of Prince of Persia in that it featured more… realistic movement, as opposed to a Mario or Sonic sidescroller. You play as Andy, whose dog was accidentally kidnapped in his place by these evil gargoyle-bug things during a solar eclipse.
But who cares about that? The thing everybody remembers about the game are the surprisingly brutal death scenes, considering it was rated E and the main character is roughly 8-10 years old. There’s a 6-7 minute long montage of them all on Youtube, as a matter of fact.
