Heart of Darkness : a one of best cinematic platform video game now and for AmigaOS4 !
Home away from home
Home away from home


See User information
Heart of Darkness is a cinematic platform video game developed by Amazing Studio released in the late of 90x.

Resized Image

Lately, I see that BeeWorld made a port of the game to MorphOS, so I give it a go and it was easy enough to build.

Through, there were some issues that I wasn't able to fix fast, so with the help of the author of that cross-platform engine rewrite, it was a faster deal with and everything ready.

Resized Image Resized Image

The author is our known Gregory Montoir, who did those tasty cross-platform rewrites of Another World, Bermuda Syndrome, Fade To Black, Flashback: The Quest For Identity and now Heart of Darkness

http://cyxdown.free.fr/

To play in the game you need original data files of course and place them to the "data" directory. Files which you need are:

- hod.paf (or hod_demo.paf, hod_demo2.paf if you play demo version)
- setup.dat
- *_hod.lvl
- *_hod.sss
- *_hod.mst

In OS4 archive there is a tasty PDF manual coming (for control and stuff), as well as README, so you will have there all explained well.

Game build over SDL2, which means all tasty stuff: it works in all possible modes (window/fullscreen), in window mode it can be resized, working iconification, joystick support (tested at least on Logitech Gamepad F310) and so on.

Resized Image Resized Image

Everything about engine and display can be controlled from the hode.ini placed in the root of the archive.

Game do autosave once you hit the new screen, and when you will run the game again it will start from the last place. If you want to start from the beginning, delete "date/setup.cfg" file.

And of course, a video on amigaos4 in action:

Ya, i remember to have played it years ago in the house of my friend .. can say this was really a good title at the time ... it's a surprise to see it ported in our Amiga land!
By the way see the Ocean logo in a 2020 Amiga's game give me a strange sensation ...

New version in os4depot's upload query. What new:

1). fixed spiders and worms movement
2). fixed small/skippable DSI when passing the levels (there was free of uninitialized memory)
3). when exit from fullscreen mode no more "returned with unfreed signals 0xc000000". That was due missing SDL_Quit, which on other modern oses not that important and can be easily forgotten as OS doing re-cleanup of resources on app's exit too.

I've found two versions of this game, the other being a "Platinum" version. Does anybody know what the difference is?

the difference is the price. When Sony or any other publisher publish a game, at first it releases the game at full price then, after 9 month (if i remember well) the game will be released as budget version and in the playstation is the "platinum version". Like the commodore that had the Kixx version

Tested the French version of the game on Sam460 & Sam440ep (scale-factor=1).

Never played the game before, quiet hard but seems fun to play! (Nice soundtrack)

Thank you kas1e for the OS4 port.

Hi,

Thank you for the port!
I don't think you need to install it on a PC first, on my side I extracted the files needed from the main .exe file using UnArc ;)

.. one day Tabor need to be released to the public and assuming they will sell it with the latest version update to let it boot into, probably for that day they will also release an update for us ..atleast kind of logic, even if 99% of the time there is not so logic in amiga land :)

Meanwhile he release again a new version 0.2.8 ...

As for now in your current archive:

- The PDF you included is set for VPDF, but maybe better to set AmiPDF instead as default as this one is bundled with the os
- Also as we have continuos release here you may add a version info in binary like you did for dosbox

Should joysticks work with these versions? I am asking because I tried them, and they were not mapped right, but it might no be supported yet, and couldn't find info on that.

Joystick works. Its SDL2, so all same: if it works in amigainput then it should work in game. Will restest today another time just in case.

@samo
Will wait at least a week, maybe there will be 0.2.9 at this time :)
