Sassy Bot, a Dutch game developer, has announced that their narrative game about losing a loved one will release for PC on March 3rd. âFragments Of Himâ is a game focusing on the death of a man named Will. While the gameâs narrative revolves around his sudden death, and the impact that death has on people around him, it also deals with the issues of homosexuality and the way the world handles differences. We receive these different views on the way the world works and how Will has dealt with his relationships with people. We see the situation through the eyes of Willâs ex-girlfriend, Wills ex-boyfriend (ex because of Willâs death), and his grandmother. The game will also come to consoles (Ps4 and Xbox one) later this year.
Sassybot was formed in 2012 by graduates of theÂ a International Game Architecture & Design course in Breda,Netherlands. Fragments Of Him is Sassybotâs first game and therefore their proving title. They have a great start as game sites are raving about the deep story and eerie scenes that are contained in this two and a half hour experience. Giant bomb has exclaimed how âIt doesnât take much to cue the waterworks these days, but Fragments of Him, where a man tries to move on from a relationship shattered by a fatal car accident, hit home hard. [â¦] I had to walk from my desk.â Also, Ubisoft lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem said that âProves that we have barely scratched the surface of the emotions that can be raised through interaction.â With all of the hype building around the game community about the emotional tale, it is good Sassybot has announced the release date of Fragments Of Him.
There is also a newly released trailer for the game, showing off its dream sequence visuals and also itâs magical effects. Things look depressing, you see all the people that have been impacted by the death of their beloved Will and how they carry on even though a piece of them is gone. The whole situation seems very ânightmare before Christmasâ-esque in that you can see what Will did âright and wrongâ but instead, youâre the judge of how he and others around him lived their life. It is unclear as of now if youâre playing in the eyes of Willâs soul or if you are just a person looking at the whole tragedy. This could easily become a game talked about when people mention powerful narratives. It looks a lot more grounded than other games of late and it will be interesting to see how Sassybotâs debut title does. Iâm very interested to see how this narrative journey turns out, and Iâll be able to do so (at least on PC), March 3rd. For more on Fragments Of Him check back to MouseNJoypad.com.
