Wired productions has announced whimsical puzzle adventure game Tin Hearts is currently in development for PC VR and PlayStation VR2, planned for release later this year.

Developed by Rogue Sun—formed by prior members of Lionhead Studios—the puzzler invites players to guide a troop of metallic toys through an obstacle course of contraptions. The courses prepared by Albert J. Butterworth, a genius inventor of an alternate-timeline Victorian era, are peppered with clues surrounding the tinkerer's backstory, expanding upon a voice acted and animated narrative.

Players can pause, fast-forward and rewind time to complete increasingly challenging puzzles to bounce, shoot and glide the tin soldiers to their goal. Music and sound design for the game is by Matthew Chastney, with eleven music tracks available for streaming on Spotify, YouTube Music and Amazon Music Unlimited.

Tin Hearts previously launched for Nintendo Switch. A five-minute behind-the-scenes video with the musician, joined by creative director Kostas Zarifis, can be viewed on the publisher's YouTube channel. The digital album is mastered by John Webber at Air Studios, with cover design by Daniel Jimenez.

Tin Hearts is currently available for PS4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Series X|S, and Windows through Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store.
