After very careful concideration and a lot of debating with myself back and
forth, I have finally decided not to accept preorders for the game. For a
product like BGT it is okay, because the point at which the product can be
considered finished is a lot more vague. With a game like Perilous Hearts,

date to honor my contract, I may not release what I wanted personally. So for
this reason, I have decided not to do it.
However, to thank all of those who gave me support, I have decided to release a
concept demo of the game to wet your apetite even further. This concept demo
contains the first two levels of the game, as well as the store. It can be

For those of you who feel the game is worth it, I would be very happy to accept
donations for its development. I do not have a special donation page for the
game, however my other website banterbay.com has such a page which allows you
to send money to Blastbay Studios. So while the receipt will say BanterBay
donation, I will know that the donation is for Perilous Hearts rather than
Banterbay. This page is available at:
The money goes into the same PayPal account as I use when buying resources for
the game, so you can be sure it goes to the right place.
Let me know what you think of the game, report problems and, above all, have
