The Heirloom features a mysterious story inspired by the atmosphere of the Scottish Hebrides and Scottish Folklore. The main protagonist of the game is Marla Moir, a 16-year-old girl and the eldest daughter of the Moir family. Marla is joined on her adventures by her brother Jack and both characters are voiced by Asian American Voice Actor Rebecca Wang, star of Netflix shows Blue Eye Samurai and Steps.
The game also features another character called Morvin Moir, a grumpy old man and the last living relative of Marla and Jack. Morvin is voiced by Andy Mack (Evil West, Dying Light 2.)
The Heirloom will be over 4 hours long and will have trophies
Thanks to comments answered by the developer on their Kickstarter campaign page, we now know some additional bits of info about The Heirloom.
- The Heirloom will be about 4 hours long, but this excludes hidden areas and side quests
- The game will have trophies and achievements on all platforms
- The game will have replayability due to hidden areas and secrets that you might miss on your first playthrough
The Kickstarter campaign also includes some other details that make The Heirloom sound like a very interesting game. The game will have exploration and puzzle elements as well as secrets. There will also be decision-making in the game. You can also find items which you can combine and use wisely to achieve your goals.
The Heirloom sounds like it could be an indie gem and the fact that it is set in Scotland and is inspired by Scottish folklore means that it will be something pretty special.
