Fixed camera angles. Clumsy animations. Tracks written in a lined notebook. Moving blocks puzzles. Oh yeah, I'm definitely getting a feel for the 3D adventure games of the 2000's Broken pieces, which appeared with a new trailer at the IGN Expo on Friday.
Then, towards the end, the elements of the “psychological thriller” appeared with trippy floating rocks and what looks like a cloud monster attacking our very normal protagonist. After that, we re-solve a fuse box puzzle: The broken pieces are definitely an adventure game in which things will, at some point, become strange.
Here's the Steam release: "The game puts you in the shoes of Elise, a thirty-year-old woman who lives in the village of Saint-Exil, located in an imaginary region reminiscent of Brittany. After & # 39; an inexplicable paranormal phenomenon, Elise is trapped, alone, in a time loop that inevitably forces her to relive the same day over and over again. Your research begins here … "
The fixed camera angles reminiscent of Silent Hill are part of the playing field, as is a “single combat system” that, as far as I know, is equivalent to standing still and shooting at monsters from the cloud that slowly walk towards you. This particular part of Broken Pieces doesn’t look that hot, though the developers tell Steam it’s early and it’s in development and it still includes placeholder animations. I like the sound of another feature, which revisits areas of the game as time changes. I love good snowfall, especially if it somehow upsets the world.
Broken Pieces will be released on PC and consoles in the second quarter of 2022.
