Experience True Psychological Horror with The Shattering

August 12, 2016 Written by

Indie developer Deck13 and SuperSexySoftware are collaborating together to bring a new game for the psychological horror genre.

The Shattering is a first person adventure game that promises to bring out your deepest fears.

The premise behind The Shattering centers around a man trying to pick up the pieces left behind by tragic events. In a sense, you’ll be trapped in a man-made hell (no, not the DMV). The character will physically show his inner turmoil in moments of stress or fear through body reactions.

"You have lots of horror games nowadays but they are more about jumpscares and sadly not so much about what actually scares us." says 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."

Game journalist can get a hands-on look at The Shattering during this year’s Gamescom.

The game is currently scheduled for a 2018 release on PC.
