About Broken Pieces

About this game

Mainly created by a team of 5 people, Broken Pieces is the first game to come out of the French game development studio Elseware Experience.

When Elise and her fiancé decided to leave urban life and settle near the French coast, she could not imagine that she would end up completely alone.

Now, surrounded by strange phenomena in a dark, post-Cold War climate, Elise will have to investigate and unravel the mysteries surrounding the region of Saint-Exil, its ritualistic cult, and its lighthouse overlooking the coast.

Broken Pieces is an action-packed investigative and adventure video game set in France. The game puts you in the shoes of Elise, a woman in her thirties who finds herself in the village of Saint-Exil in an imaginary region reminiscent of Brittany. Following an unexplained paranormal phenomenon, Elise is stuck, completely alone and out of time. Your investigation begins here…
