What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We decided to release Shattered in early access to gather feedback from the community as soon as possible and take them into account during the development of the game. We’ll keep polishing the game and will add more content up to its final release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Shattered will stay in Early Access until it's done.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to include every area imagined for the game for the release of the game, whereas the early access will only open the doors of the few areas that are done at this stage. We also plan to add a wider variety of foes and bosses, as well as more narrative content and non playing characters that the player can meet.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We think of the early access as a beta. Most of the final features are integrated but some foes, NPCs and areas have not yet been included. You can already explore wide spaces, fight various enemies, level up, discover lots of lore and start piecing together the world of Hypnos’ past. We plan on including every area imagined for the game for the game’s release, while early access will only open the doors of the few areas that are done at this stage. We also plan to add a wider variety of foes and bosses, as well as more narrative content and NPCs the player can meet (their choices and behaviour having an influence on the NPC's own stories outcome), and glyphs to customize even more the character's skills and features.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will be increased for the official release of the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have been very close to our community since the beginning, from Kickstarter to our social networks and our Discord server. We’ve always talked a lot and directly with our Travelers to take their feedback and advice into account. We will carefully read each and every comment you will send us for Shattered to become the best game possible.”

Build 0.04 is coming

Wanderers, the war against infinite load screens has been declared! With this update, you shouldn't be getting anything like this anymore.
We hope.
We sacrificed all our coffee stock to the mystic gods of UE4, so it should work.

ADDITION:
- Option to "invert Y-axis" in the controls menu

BUG FIX:
- Better framerate in the Ancient Lands and Serene Cliff
- Fix of The Stranger who didn't want to spawn
- Fix of The Stranger who did spawn but didn't move (and became an automatic turret)
- Texture problems on the Hierarchs are fixed
- A lot of not moving foes in the Ancient Lands are fixed
- The gates leading to the Cardinal Bosses 2 & 3 are fixed
- Fix of the infinite keys/Essence on the Pretorian after his death

CHANGES:
- Foes now drop their Essence instantly after they die
- The Stranger has a longer recovery time upon the end of his combos, so you get a bit more time to hit him.

WHAT'S NEXT?
Well, pretty much the same things that we talked about in the last patch notes. Thank you for your attention & support, Wanderers ♥

Build 0.03 is live! What are we planning next?

Hi there :D
We keep working on Shattered, fixing bugs and optimizing everything we can, thanks to your feedback. We're super thankful to everyone of you playing the game again and again, patch after patch, letting us know what's better and what's not. That's amazing.

ADDITIONS:
- Sound settings menu
- Video settings menu

BUG FIX:
- HUD is now really responsive to different screen resolutions
- Limbo gates are fixed

CHANGES:
- Backstab has been nerfed

WHAT'S NEXT?
- Inverted Y axis
- Items allowing to teleport back to Limbo wells & Limbo heart


You may also have seen a little update last weekend: it was just a sneaky hotfix to fix static foes. Seemed like they didn't want to attack you anymore. Noble, but not so fun!
As for what's coming later: when we're done fixing bugs and polishing the game as much as possible, the future updates will mostly be about the fighting system. We've been writing down all your feedback and suggestions, and we have a lot of ideas on how we're going to drastically improve the game feel. It will take a bit of time, though.
Thank you again so much for your enthusiasm & patience, Wanderers!

About This Game

Put on the Wanderer's coat and explore strange worlds adrift within the void. Retrace the fall of an entire civilization through the testimonies of its rare survivors in Shattered - Tale of the Forgotten King, an adventure game mixing exploration and boss fight.

Between dreamy exploration and epic battles

In the world of Hypnos, a wide continent scattered with huge fortresses and cities in ruins is yours to roam. Switch between 2.5D and 3D phases and dive into the story of a forgotten universe where fierce opponents await. To reach victory, precision in your movements and observation of your enemies will be vital. Are you ready, Wanderer?

Features:

  • Several zones to explore: A semi-open world in which you can walk several paths. You can choose the one that suits you. Or choose to discover new ones.
  • Terrible bosses to fight: Observe them and learn to anticipate their moves. The timing of your assaults and parries will be crucial to your victory.
  • Constant progression: May it be by crushing enemies or discovering new areas, you'll have the possibility of making the Wanderer evolve. Will you choose to level up, buy new equipment or purchase more lore items to learn everything about Hypnos?

« I had travelled through forgotten paths for days, weeks and months to reach the Thousand-Door Palace. A place where only silence reigned now. Where the wind had stopped and the tides retreated with the Great Rift. The great Departure.

And here stood before me this towering beauty of onyx and obsidian - the divine home where once echoed every whisper of the world. So vast that the greatest city of any kingdom would only be an anteroom in comparison. Peculiar green lights shone from inside the building, pulsating though the circular openings in the floating columns. The lost reverberations of an empty throne...

And here I was, bathed in my mist of past and future memories, standing in this mythical place that remained, still. The only location anyone in Hypnos could have found with no map or compass back when the King still reigned.

And I Remember the Silence In My Soul.
The Bitter Raindrops In the Wind. »
