The centerpiece of Carnage Heart EXA is the design and implementation of giant robots called Overkill Engines (OKE). By themselves, these robots are unimpressive; only by hardware and software modifications do they become truly terrifying machines. Players will have a multitude of hardware and software options to add to their OKEs including weapons, fuel tanks, armor thickness, and more.
Software designed by the players is stored on virtual cards that can be slotted into any OKE. These commands dictate how a unit performs. Chips on the software card are laid out in a programming chart, where players must choose which actions within the chip are to be prioritized. Combine together a variety of chips to create complex instructions for your OKEs to use while on the field of battle!
Mixing high levels of customization via programming with a hardcore strategy RPG system, the game also allows players to save their battles as movie files, which they can then share over the Internet.
"Carnage Heart EXA provides players a unique opportunity by allowing them to save their battles as movie files," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. "This allows players to record a battle to remember for later, and even share these files to social media, like Facebook and Twitter."
