Fragments of Him is a story driven first-person game from the Netherlands-based indie developer SassyBot Studio. The story follows the lives of four individuals touched by the sudden death of Will, the game’s protagonist. Players must re-live the last moments of Will’s life and discover the memories of the people he left behind. People like Harry, Will’s boyfriend who comes home to an empty apartment filled with things that remind him of Will. Or Mary, a grandmother feeling alone and forsaken by a society that has so rapidly changed, she no longer recognizes it.
“We wanted to approach death as a topic in a way that is very uncommon for video games, but very present in the lives of many. What happens when you lose someone you loved suddenly, how do you manage to carry on? We think video games are an ideal medium to take players on such an emotional, human, and comforting journey” said Elwin Verploegen, co-founder of SassyBot.
Fragments of Him is set to release in 2016 for PC and Xbox One, with a release on Mac and Linux to follow. To learn more about the game, or to pre-order a copy, be sure to visit the official website.
