Fragments Of Him is a narratively-driven interactive story, developed by independent outfit Sassybot Studio. It centres around Will, a young man whose life is ended prematurely, and his friends and family, as they try to come to terms with his death.
There are no puzzles, no hidden paths and no alternate endings - Fragments really is just an interactive story. The game is almost entirely in black and white, excluding only the objects you need to interact with. The playable characters have blank faces and people in the background are seen only as silhouettes. These design choices were made in order to encourage the player - you - to fill in the blanks.
Have a look at the trailer below.
Fragments Of Him releases on PC 3 May, Xbox One shortly after, and PS4 later in the year.
