Sayonara Wild Hearts


Sayonara Wild Hearts is a dreamy arcade game about riding motorcycles, skateboarding, dance battling, shooting lasers, wielding swords, and breaking hearts at 200 mph.

As the heart of a young woman breaks, the balance of the universe is disturbed. A diamond butterfly appears in her dreams and leads her through a highway in the sky, where she finds her other self: the masked biker called The Fool.

The Sim is Simon Flesser, and the Go is Magnus “Gordon” Gardebäck. The O is for “och”, which is the Swedish word for “and”. We have been making games, or game-like things, as Simogo since 2010. Our tiny studio is located in the very south of Sweden in Malmö, not far from the train station. We don’t have 100% defined roles, but Gordon is mostly responsible for code, papers and numbers, and Simon for art, sounds and words.

This game is featured at Now Play This as part of our cooperation with Next Level Festival.
