The Tell-Tale Heart is a game rendition of Edgar Allan Poe’s short story of the same name. The game was my submission for the 2013 Global Game Jam, a 48-hour jam with the theme “heartbeats”. In the game you are a police officer investigating a house after screams were reported by neighbors. Once inside the house, you have to search for the “tell-tale heart”: the still-beating heart of a murdered man which is placed in a random location each time you play the game. You must locate the heart somewhere in the two-story house using only your ears to guide you (the heart makes a constant beating and gets louder as you get nearer).
You can play the game here.
