Heart of Darkness

Heart of Darkness is a cinematic platformer in the vein of Eric Chahi‘s previous game Another World in which players control Andy, who faces various dangers in search of his dog, Whisky. Players progress through the game’s linear storyline by navigating various environments and solving puzzles, all whilst attempting to keep Andy from being killed by evil shadows, hungry wildlife, and perilous obstacles. Along with basic movement, such as running, jumping, and climbing, certain sections of the game give Andy additional abilities. The plasma cannon allows Andy to shoot lightning at shadows in order to disintegrate them. The Special Powers, which can also be used offensively against enemies, can additionally be used to grow and destroy trees born from seeds. The player has unlimited tries, with Andy returning to the most recent checkpoint when he is killed.

Original CD/demo files needed.


Requirements: RTG + 68060.

  1. Hello Arti thanks for making this port for the community. It works really great on my Vampire 1200, the only weird thing is that the resolution is going to the left. Is there a way to centre the picture ?
    Thanks in Advance

  2. Currently not possible but I’ll see what I can do.

  3. Will there be a version for MorphOS PPC?

  4. Ciaoz Arti!
    First of all I wanted to give the comments for this port, which is exceptional.
    I just wanted to ask you why the screen is shifted to the left and if there is a way to center the image. I’m on V1200 + COFFIN r58.

  5. Hi, that’s because game uses unsual screen size which originally was scaled 3x and displayed on 800×600 resolution. I’ll fix it someday hopefully.

  6. Dirk Schindler Says:

    is there the possibility to integrate the videos? Can only play the game without sequences.

    • Video’s works, you must be missing video file in correct location. I can’t remember from head which one was it. I write again when at home.

  7. You need hod.paf in data/paf folder which is around 429MB in size.

  8. Is there a way to choose your own resolution?
    1024×768 @ 4x scale could be ideal for this game.

  9. I am not able to get a full screen. There is always a black border on the right. Tried changing configuration, tried ModePro, ii is a A500+ with V500.

  10. That’s normal, game uses non standard resolution.
    Scaling it to 800×600 would look better but will be slower.
