The audiobook "The Little Soldier Who Dared" is now available exclusively on Spotify. This audiobook serves as a prequel to the puzzle adventure Tin Hearts. The story is narrated by none other than the legendary Stephen Fry.

"The Little Soldier Who Dared" is written by Kostas Zarifis and Mike Faraday with art by Taufiq Permana. Meanwhile, animation was done by Thor Hayton and sound and music by Matthew Chastne.

It tells the story of an inventor Albert and his daughter Rose. The two are traveling to a toymaking convention to show off their wares. They're also going there to have an important meeting and the outcome would forever change their destiny. However, it seems that Albert's toys are special in ways that are unknown even to him.

Tin Hearts is a game where players guide a troop of tin soldiers across a magical toy-filled world. To reach the goal, they need to use different whimsical and inventive contraptions to allow the tin soldiers to do a variety of actions like bounce, shoot, and glide. There are more than 50 levels available with each puzzle becoming increasingly more elaborate than the previous one.
