About The Shattering
The Shattering is a work of passion coming from a small group of 5 close friends. It has its roots in 2013, when the first echoes of the game started to take form in the mind of Marta Szymańska, who was studying the contrast of white and black in horror entertainment games and culture. The core theme draws on the premise that horrors and fear can be achieved through embracing white and the absence of information, rather than darkness and the obvious, though unseen, enemy.
The Shattering places you in the mind of John Evans, where you struggle to piece together the fragments of your past and present. Not remembering is one thing, but what happens when your mind leads you down the twisting path of fake memories in order to shelter you from the truth?
