Game: The Legend of Hart's Hollow

The Legend of Hart's Hollow is a 3D top-down isometric game that mixes action/adventure, unique sound mechanics, and a 4 person multi-player experience. In the game, 3 players take control of three young adventurers, who have ventured into Hart's Hollow, a swamp haunted by a monster known only as "The Shade". These three players must find an burn the 3 enchanted items that are keeping "The Shade" bound to the Earth, and they must do it before The Shade catches them. The 4th player, plays as The Shade. This player will be blind folded, instead using the sound and pace of the other character's heartbeats to find and catch them.


Stay Inside The Box: The whole game takes place in just one screen, no scrolling or changing screens in any way is allowed.
No cheating (please): The game system relies on willing player participation to enforce the rules of the game world (e.g., hold your breath, close your eyes, etc.).
More the Merrier: The game is a competitive or cooperative multiplayer "party game" (i.e., based on minigames, humor, 4+ players, audience engagement, etc.), meant for one screen or more.
Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…

Executable or Installer



The game uses 4 XBox 360 controllers.  Each person controls 1 of 3 adventurers or the Shade.  The 3 Adventurers move using the left analogue stick through a swampy maze.

As the Adventurers the main goal is to find and destroy the witches buried artifacts vanishing the Shade, before the Shade frightens all of you.

The Shade listens and feels for the Adventurers hopefully scaring them and making them all faint before he is vanished. 

Use the left mouse button to advance the story.

Directional Audio is an optimal listening experience.
