Polish startup studio SuperSexySoftware has teamed up with Deck13 (Lords of the Fallen, The Surge) to release their ambitious debut title, The Shattering. The first person psychological horror adventure will be released in 2018 on PC.
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.” 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.”
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.
