Heavy Burden lets you lift on Xbox

A second Whale Rock Games release of the day? It’s that which you’ll find in Heavy Burden on Xbox as you get the opportunity to prove that you lift. 

Heavy Burden is an explorative affair, one in – we think – you are tasked with clambering upwards, shifting a heavy stone as you go. Why? Well, we’ve watched the trailer and we’ve checked out the screenshots and are left clueless to the reasons behind this journey. But that just makes the whole process more appealing. 

Ready to get moving that stone?

Whale Rock Games have released Dofamine to the Xbox world today, and they are accompanying that launch with this one in Heavy Burden. They could well be seen as similar ish titles too, but we think this is a much more mediative experience. 

It’s priced at £4.19 with a launch discount available for a limited time, running through the Xbox Store as per the norm. From there, you can get to play this one on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. 

Dip in and you’ll find a philosophical journey in which, yes, that stone needs to be moved upwards. How you do that is up to you, as is the path you decide to follow. Feeling a fairly simple gaming experience, it’s the soundscape and visual takes that should allow you to become all immersed. 

Key game features

We guess you could make up your own narrative as you go, and we’ll let you know how it plays for us in full review. But expect the keys features of Heavy Burden on Xbox to run as…

  • Explore the world around you and find philosophical notes.
  • Take the stone to the top, higher and higher, and if it falls, well, start over, that’s your punishment.
  • Choose your path correctly. Your decisions will determine the end of the game.
  • Discover the philosophy of Albert Camus. Don’t try to understand every word, just let it pass through you.
  • Enjoy the abstract game world, and find different ways of passing.
  • And also listen to atmospheric music and sound effects.

Buy now and lift!

If you’re up for taking this journey onwards, then go and grab a download of Heavy Burden from the Xbox Store right now. 

Alternatively, make sure you check out the fast moving, fast climbing Jusant – that tasks you with worrying about one thing, going up… 

Heavy Burden on Xbox Game Description

“Beginning to think is beginning to be undermined,” wrote Albert Camus, and it is hard to disagree with this. To contemplate one’s life means to knock oneself down, to stop, to begin to go over one’s experiences, to discard the superfluous and unnecessary, to destroy the old in the hope of constructing the new, in other words, to be undermined. It is impossible not to note the severity of this word because this action is associated with pain, loss, the need to choose difficult routes, and sometimes taking risks so as not to make new mistakes and not to fall off the set path. But is it worth enduring the pain? What happens if we simply go with the flow? How will our lives turn out then?

The French philosopher Albert Camus asked similar questions in his famous essay “The Myth of Sisyphus. In brief, the ancient Greek myth is as follows: the gods condemned Sisyphus, because he was too arrogant and too dodgy, to roll a huge stone up the mountain, which kept falling and had to start all over again. It would seem that what could be worse than this useless work? What was Sisyphus thinking as he climbed to the top of the mountain? And what do we care about him?

Maybe we should admit that our lives are a bit like this Sisyphus? Approach Albert Camus’s thoughts and feelings, his philosophy. Perhaps you will find some answers to these difficult questions.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
