A new psychological thriller from a talented 5 person team at Super Sexy Software is releasing on PC at the end of April. Using a stunning white aesthetic born out of an earlier study of black and white contrast used in the horror genre, this story unfolds across 5 chapters where players will have to try and discover what happens to the protagonist John.
The Press Release is included below for additional details.
A white void all around you, a distant voice beckoning you to come back to its sweet embrace… and a typewriter in front of you. That is Johns mind. But is it his reality? Super Sexy Software and Deck13 Spotlight are proud to announce the release day for the psychological thriller “The Shattering”. The psychological thriller indie title will be available on Steam April 21st.
About the game
The Shattering is a work of passion coming from a small group of 5 close friends. It has its roots in 2013, when the first echoes of the game started to take form in the mind of Marta Szymańska, who was studying the contrast of white and black in horror entertainment games and culture. The core theme draws on the premise that horrors and fear can be achieved through embracing white and the absence of information, rather than darkness and the obvious, though unseen, enemy.
Players will experience the key moments of John’s life that have defined and shaped him – they will be tasked with discovering the truth, shattering the lies and, ultimately, finding out what happened to him… and to remember her name.
