Shattered : Tale of The Forgotten King is a one player 2D/3D Platformer / Action

developed with Unreal Engine4.

It is made for : 

  • PC
  • PS4
  • XBOX ONE


The game takes place in a strange and shattered world, ruled by Elder Gods. Follow the Wanderer on his journey to find memories of his past, with The Whisperer, a disturbing creature helping him on his quest.

Shattered will take you on a journey of choices and hidden stories. All of your decisions will follow you path, right until the end.

 

  

 

At first there was the King.

 All living things in the world of Hypnos are born with a mask that define their personality. Few come to life with a name, which can only be given by the King and define their purpose in the world.

The only ones who can talk are Whisperers.  Nothing like the other people in Hypnos : Whisperers wear no masks but handle words for the silent ones. Another exception are Pretorians, the Royal Army. They abandon their mask and name to wear the Pretorian armor and serve the King until their last breath.

 

Or until the day the King disappeared, leaving Hypnos on its own. The world started to scatter, as powerful creatures rose to claim the lands for themselves.

The Demiurges, as they were named, faced the Pretorians. They fought bravely, but their defeat was inevitable against the god-like entities. Their failure lead them to a fate worse than death.

The Demiurges started to figth each other until only twelve of them remain. During this war, the world broke into three parts, and lots of lands were lost.

 

 

Ages later, a Wanderer wakes up without any memories of his past. As he starts exploring these destroyed lands, he meets the Whisperer, who was hiding in Limbo since the King went missing.

Now begins the Wanderer’s quest for truth.

As he marches on those strange places, he faces incredibly powerful and mythic creatures ; learning about them, and his own destiny.

The story of Hypnos yet has to be discovered and the future is in your hands.
Will you help the Wanderer on his journey?

 

 

The Wanderer : Your character. Guide Wander through his quest for answers in the world of Hypnos. On your way, you will have to look for your memories and discover what happened to these scattered lands. Wander holds great powers but will have to find how to master them first.

 

 

 

The Whisperer : A strange being who hides in Limbo since the King went missing. It is the first character you will encounter. Cynical and mysterious, he knows much more than he speaks and will join you throughout your journey. But can you trust his word ?

 

 

The King : The King and God of Hypnos. Not much is known about him. He gave birth to this world and all living beings. Nobody knows why he left the throne unoccupied or where he is now. The Whisperer told the Wanderer that the King could answer all his questions.

 

 

 

Choron : A silent entity who watches over the Limbo and lets you travel through the realm of Hypnos. Unlike the King, nobody knows anything about him. And nobody knows why he intends to help Wander.

 

 

The Geomancer : One of the last entities who survived after the King’s departure. His purpose is not really clear but you will meet several times during your journey. Like the Whisperer, he knows quite a lot about Hypnos. But who should you trust more ?

 

 

 

The Demiurges : Unique creatures who hold tremendous powers. They rule Hypnos and are the only antagonists of the game. 

 2D PLATFORMER

Where the player is induced to understand and explore the complete level, to solve it has a large scale puzzle. Each zone is made of :

 

  •  One major puzzle that the player has to solve to go on the adventure.

 

  • Three minor puzzle who can give access to secret zones or different scenaristic nodes.

 

In this part, you must survive to lethal traps, solve many enigma and find your way on labyrinthic levels.

 

 3D DYNAMIC BOSS FIGHT

Where the player is lead to face 12 Bosses, The Demiurges, with different behaviour and pattern for each one of them. The fighting system is brought to the purest kind, it's counting on :

 

  • Player's dexterity, reflexes and sense of timing. Light and strong attacks, dodge, feint and                       dash are at the very heart of the gameplay and lead to special attack chains.

 

  • Skills aquired and used during plateformer phases.

 

STORYTELLING

Depends of enigmas solved by the player as well as bossfight outcomes. The story is narrated throught :

 

  • The Wisperer's narrative,

 

  • Scrolls from Geodesian Book, common objects in each level,

 

  • Eibon's fragments, hidden in some dark places. 

 

Each one carrying its own vision of the story. The player have to discover the truth, by finding all of those pieces during his quest.

 

 

RPG COMPONENTS

  • SKILL SYSTEM : unlock different passives or active skills depending on your way to handle the game.

Some hidden skill-trees will give different skill sets, depending on battles issue and levels completion.

 

  • CRAFT SYSTEM : The player can collect ressources to use in the forge : 

 

 

- Glyphs are improving weapons and armors with elemental effects.

  

 

Crafting can repair, enhance or create equipement, consumable items or additional keys. There is a limited amount of ressources, so every crafted equipement involves another choice.

For exemple, the player could chose between crafting a powerful weapon to defeat a boss more easily, or a new key to unlock some piece of the story.

 

 

  • LANGUAGE : Every single Eibon's fragment is an alphabet letter. The more you have, the more translated Demiurges' strange language will be. The player have to understand and handle properly those elements to discover the most complete ending.

 "For his kingdom, the first word came in a whiper.

Before knowing what the sky, a mountain or a river was, this word echoed within our souls.

From our birth to our last breath, we would serve and protect Hypnos."

2.5D – 3D FIGHTS : HOW TO SURVIVE IN THE WORLD OF HYPNOS

 

In Shattered – Tale of the Forgotten King, lots of enigmas and deadly traps await. But they are not the only threat across your way. The game is ponctuated with epic boss fights against powerful creatures, the Demiurges. They stand as twelve, and each of them has its own rules, patterns and arena. Consequently, it is essential to understand the level design if you wish to defeat the old wrecker gods and get to know more about your past and Hypnos.

The gods have their servants.

Golems with no consciousness, ghosts or living memories, monsters born from their flesh and dreams ; they are the faded reflection of what once was Hypnos. Theses foes will appear during plateformer phases, adding unexpected difficulties.

 

FIGHTING SYSTEM IN SHATTERED :

 

The fighting system is based upon a limited amount of attacks, dodges and blocks. These skills are relied to the character's stats : STRENGHT, STAMINA & SPEED

 

 ATTACK : Linking two basic strikes can lead to a third one, which deals more damages but also uses more STAMINA. The character is vulnerable when he attacks : you must be very attentive to the ennemies' patterns timing and quiclky learn to switch between agressivity and defense. The amount of damages dealt depend on which weapon you're using, the way you upgraded your stuff, the glyphs you chose and the character's STRENGHT, which improve throughout the game.

 

BLOCK : Efficient against every standard hit, even from titanic opponents, blocking an attack consumes STAMINA. Keep in mind that your guard can still get broken in case of heavy strike. There is always a casting time before a heavy strike : it's up to you to identify each of them when you meet new ennemies. Blocking an assault precisely when it reaches the player automatically triggers a devastating counterattack, which deals CRITICAL DAMAGES.

 

 

 DODGE : Temporarily grants you invunerability, but requires more STAMINA than blocking. Dodging is necessary to survive heavy strikes, so you need to use it parsimoniously. You can improve your dodging skills by picking the right stuff and glyphs, and with your character's SPEED stat, which also get better throughout the game. 

New possibilies will be unlocked during your journey : ennemy bounce, air combo... etc.

 

 

Narrative trailer will show itself on Wednesday, with some FAQ.

AND, there 'also will be a big announcement on Friday.


Thank you for all the support you already gave us !
