Developer Rogue Sun and publisher Wired Productions have released The Little Soldier Who Dared, an animated short film for upcoming puzzle adventure game Tin Hearts.
The brand-new short film acts as a prequel to the game, which is set to launch next week on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, following the Nintendo Switch launch last month.
Narrated by Stephen Fry, the short film follows inventor Albert Butterworth and his daughter Rose as they travel to a toymaking convention for an important meeting that can “forever change their destiny”, all while the special toys at the convention embark on adventures of their own.
The short film is available on YouTube – embedded below – and it will be available later as a free audiobook exclusively on Spotify.
Tin Hearts tells the emotional story of Albert and his family, all while you control the titular tin soldiers to solve puzzles in an alternative-Victorian world.
Available now on Nintendo Switch, Tin Hearts will launch on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on May 16th and will release on PCVR, Meta Quest 2, and PSVR2 later this year.
