heartLINE was an experiment in making gameplay and storytelling compliment eachother in an action game.

You have just returned from WWII, and your wife has been infected by a deadly biological weapon that throws off the beat of her heart. With the help of a military doctor involved in unusual medical research, you miniaturize yourself to fight off the virus from within your wife's bloodstream. You must follow the beat of her heart to save her life, and you must never let her heart stop beating.

Music, art, design, and programming by Kevin Dressel.

Hints:
-The game is about 8 minutes long, including a final boss.
-Don't hit the red blood clots, they will kill you immediately
-Most of the action was hand-choreographed on the timeline. Same game each play.
-There IS a health boost after the first half, so hang in there!

Updates:
-Bugs should be fixed now:
+ Game is playable and beatable to the end
+ Game should stay in sync
+ Game should not freeze anymore
+ Also, the preloader actually works now

I like this.

It's a really interesting concept, and it's nicely executed.

The beat of the heart was pretty catchy, too ;D.

Just one odd little thing I noticed: most of the time I fire the laser, it actually doesn't have the firing graphic, but it destroys enemies. Was this intended, or was it a bug?
