Ocean’s Heart puts players in the shoes of Tilia as she tracks down her best friend and father who have been kidnapped by a pirate named Blackbeard. Being like Zelda, the game packs in thoughtful combat and secrets to uncover in a fantasy setting, but Mraz’s project also blends in elements from games like Hollow Knight, The Witcher, and Dark Souls. The story itself promises a lighthearted adventure, with humor playing a part in the story told.

Ocean’s Heart follows Mraz’s side project, Yarntown, a 16-bit Bloodborne reimagining. The bite-sized free game offered up the opening hours of Bloodborne from a different perspective, and it was essentially a training exercise for Mraz as he built this new, original title.
