The Shattering is a first-person, story-driven, psychological thriller that takes place in the pristine white aesthetic of protagonist John Evans’ own dream. Players must piece together the fragments of the past and present, following the voice of the ‘Doctor’ as he guides them deeper into John’s mind.

Players will experience the key moments of John’s life that have defined and shaped him – they will be tasked with discovering the truth, shattering the lies and, ultimately, finding out what happened to him… and to remember her name.
