Hello, sorry if you've answered this question before, but what exactly is the difference between Heaven's Machine and House of God on Steam? I know these are both from the same developer and publisher, that being you guys, but aside from the titles I can't really tell the difference.
A downloadable game for Windows
From Glass Revolver, the creator of ITTA, Heaven's Machine is a chaotic, fast-paced roguelite set on a cosmic train racing towards heaven. Jack wakes up to find themselves at the end of this metal tomb, with no other choice than to pick up a gun, pull the trigger, and run headlong towards the conductor to save their dead loved one.
As Jack, players will travel through a randomly-generated train, grabbing dozens of the 50+ unique items, blasting hundreds of enemies, and battling bizarre monsters. For an extra challenge, battle the demiurge in the unlockable Night Train mode which randomizes all train cars, enemies, bosses, and shops!
Originally released back in November 2021 by Super Rare Games, Heaven's Machine was exclusively released for the Nintendo Switch as the world's first ever limited print, physical-only Switch game (that's right, it wasn't available on the eShop!) Super Rare Shorts was an initiative As part of our promise to preservation and accessibility, we said we'd make sure Heaven's Machine was later released digitally, DRM-free here on itch.io.

Having trouble getting the game to run. When I click on the EXE windows asks me what I want to "Open" if I open anything but the data.win file it does nothing. Opening Data.win gives me the game but with 90% of the sound not functioning. What am I doing wrong here?
Hiya, oh dear! Unsure what's going on there... could you ping a message on this to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll figure it out? :)
Hey! Can you tell me how to contact you? Can you add some email or Twitter to your profile?
Oops, yes sorry, can do!

You can also DM us on Twitter @SuperRareGames (we're just the publisher for Heaven's Machine, of course, the developer is @glass__revolver
The screenshots and trailer really don't make me confident that it's a fun game, it looks busy with enemies and bullets (I don't like Touhou, so whatever maybe some might like it that way) and the background and foreground kinda blend into each other cuz of the lack of colours (Only a brownish white, red, yellow, cyan/blue and dark grey) and it's hard to tell which character is the player because every character look the same, except for the obvious few that are so big they take the whole screen, only thing I can tell easily apart are those blackened squares that denote walls.
Am I the only 1 who thinks the presentation of the game could be a little better?
Reminds me a lot of Glass Revolver's House Of God.
It is effectively a from-the-ground-up reimagining + expansion of his previous game House of God, yup!
I want to be honest. It looks awful. People used to make great pixel games in NES and SEGA era, but this one is a work of an amateur.
