The Shattering is about a fragile mind trying to piece itself together after tragic events. The player explores the mind of a man trapped inside his self-created hell.
"You have lots of horror games nowadays, but they are more about jumpscares and sadly not so much about what actually scares us," said Marta Szymanska, Founder of SuperSexySoftware. "We want to change that. Our idea is to confront the player with the hidden fears that lie beneath an idyllic illusion of normalcy, only then one can truly understand the despair of the hero."
However, it is not all about the mind - the psyche influences the body significantly. The character will show realistic body reactions in moments of stress and fear. To celebrate today's announcement SuperSexySoftware and Deck13 have released five fresh pre-Gamescom screenshots showing off the unique style of the game.
The Shattering will be playable as a hands-on demo for members of the press at this year's Gamescom.
