This game has been a long-time coming, but it’s finally here. Launching May 3, the narrative video game Fragments of Him from indie developer Sassybot will have you pawing for the tissues in no time.
The interactive drama, Fragments of Him, tells the story of love, memories, and hope. Following the aftermath of Will’s sudden death, players will experience how the lives of those close to him are affected by his loss. Players will walk along side Will in his final moments as well as through the memories of those who loved him.
“We have been on an amazing journey since we started development at a game jam more than three years ago, and it is wonderful that players will soon be able to experience our story”, said Elwin Verploegen, co-founder of Sassybot. “We are regularly overwhelmed by how our audience is moved by the game, and how they appreciate a title combining emotional honesty on a difficult topic with such an uplifting ending.”
Although the story follows grief and loss, the developers hope the game offers an uplifting experience about the value of opening your heart and remembering to cherish those you love.
Fragments of Him is set to launch on Steam on May 3 for £14.99 followed by an Xbox One release shortly after. A PlayStation 4 release is also on the cards, but not until later this year.
