About the Game

An Environmental Puzzle Game About Family, Grit, and Survival.

Grays roam the land, largely in the absence of human interference. These aren't your typical Zed -- theirs is a very different sort of apocalypse. Animals spontaneously transform into twisted, violent beings. The earth decays, collapsing into a network of abysses. The wilderness thickens.

It has been nine years since That Day when it all started. Pockets of humanity still exist, but are ignorant of one another. Within these isolated havens people try to live as best they can -- for even in a world so broken and dark, daily life must go on.

Darrell and Mary Williams were able to build such a life inside a five-acre fenced yard out in the country. They were even secure enough in their isolated compound that they had a daughter five years after the zombie-like grays appeared.

Life carried on as normally as it could, until another refugee on the run is killed during a nearby attack. Her son is saved and taken in by the Williamses -- who do not realize that this kind action will destroy their home and threaten their entire family. They find themselves caught in the midst of a struggle between two eldritch horrors, and the path to survival is anything but clear.

Key Features

  • Solve environmental puzzles under pressure. Figure out how to use the tools, traps, and weapons in each level to clear all the Grays.
  • Nearly 100 hand-crafted levels with multiple difficulty levels ranging between casual and hardcore, developed end to end by two experienced adventure level designers.
  • Complete bonus objectives for higher scores and gold markers.
  • Follow the story of Darrell and Mary as they try to save their family from a new and unexpected threat through in-game storytelling and painted-style cutscenes.
  • Guide different members of the Williams family through branching story paths that result in one of several endings. Depending on your actions, the story may end very poorly, happily, or anywhere in between.
  • Music and sound by composer Pablo Vega provides a chilling atmosphere for players to experience.
  • Included level editor: The same editor used to make the main adventure will let you make your own levels, cutscenes, or even entire adventures.
  • Local 2-player co-op. Using two gamepads, two players on the keyboard, or any combination of the above.

I don't recommend this title because it feels too rushed onto the market. A.I. Wars was good, Bionic Dues is kinda whacked, but this game other than the music just doesn't control very good a lot of the time. And there's nothing really that will frustrate a player than a game that doesn't move correctly, and makes you want to uninstall it. There are too many better games out there for you to invest your time into. Unless you get this for a really nominal amount of money? Don't bother with it.

Lack of tutorial and a queer story line lead to an forgettable experiance unfortionatly. Maybe if i spent some time reading how to play properly i could like this game but as of now it just doesn't feel like it is worth my time.

Thank you Shattered Haven.

Shattered Haven is a....conflicted game from Arcen Games. There are underpinnings of a really great game but it's execution feels schizophrenic at times. It feels like multiple developers were involved who weren't on the same page. The graphics are fairly ok for a 2D game, the music is pretty darn good and the overall mechanics aren't bad. It just feels...rushed. The difficulty spikes between easy and insane between puzzles and there are a couple bugs here and there. The control scheme isn't the best either. It's such an odd game that I'm not sure which way to recommend it for others. It's good...it's bad...it's good but it's bad....I'm just really conflicted on which way to say on this game. I think more months of polish and merging of the ideas presented in Shattered Haven would have gone a long way to making this game better. I'm only going to recommend it if you're looking for an experimental 2D RPGish puzzle game. There is a certain quirkyness to this game that may turn you off from playing it though.
