You are Joe's heart! Unfortunately, hearts don't really do much. It's another quality "demo" from Textfire.

A one-joke game about being a heart., June 5, 2017

The Textfire Demo 12-pack was released on April Fool's in 1998, claiming to be demos of an upcoming commercial studio called Textfire.

In this game, you are a heart. You can pump, or wait. I died when I played, but at least one other person lived.

It was actually really reasonably put together. I liked this game! But it really is a joke demo, which is why I didn't rate it higher.
