Description

Hexed Heart is an experimental game about breaking a curse which uses six large bolts as an interface. To play the game, a player turns the bolts until they can match all of their limbs to a changing set of poses. It was made by Sam Sheffield, a game designer/media artist currently based in Baltimore, MD.
