Well. Here we are, the Kickstarter went over all expectations, and the Heart Machine is now pumping stronger than ever.
I'm Luminisenc, or Lum, or whatever. My online-name comes from a Latin word, luminisence, which means to make light - and what a coincidence, thinking about HLD.
I love games in general, but what I really adore is that certain type of experiences, a mixture of art, nostalgia, dreams, and whatever ever has been in between these keynotes.
What amazed me when looking at this project was the nearly perfect synchronization with myself, from the music to the calm, dark ideas and perfect, yet brief, description of something forgotten.
Really, only the trailer alone made me breathe heavily, and made my heart pulsate stronger than normal.
It still does.
I love the movies of Miyazaki-san, and his caption of that certain type of experience. He, Phil Fish (FEZ), and Miyamoto-san (The Legend of Zelda, etc.) are the only ones (yet) to achieve this.
I want to know about the world, the hidden geometry, the forgotten and returning past, the safety and danger, and the almost complete, pulsating, platonic love I have for this game.
I don't have reasons, nor an objective.
But I know that that certain kind of feeling is both rare and elusive - and that you very well may achieve this.
I want to be a part of that.
Thank you, Alex.
