Heart Waves is an abstract game about relationships and how they change you forever for better or worse. The heart in the center of the screen shows what type of partner you're looking for. Energize individual nodes when the energy waves pulsing from the heart pass over them. Merge your node with your matching partner node after both nodes are energized. As you meet and merge with other nodes your heart will change and show you who to search for next.
