About Shattered - Tale of the Forgotten King

About this game

In the beginning, there was the King.
From a thought, he conjured up the Void.
From a glance, he made the world.
And from a whisper, he created us.


The world as it was is gone, lost with the disappearance of the King. As a Wanderer of these forsaken lands, it is up to you to piece together the fragments of reality and retrace the fall of civilisation through skill based combat, innovative open-world platforming and the testimonies of survivors… some more trustworthy than others.

Ethereal exploration and epic battles

A ruined continent of untold stories and mighty foes is yours to roam. For those who brave its paths, the world of Hypnos contains many secrets, some to aid you on your way and others to illuminate the road that led to your existence. Experience precision based combat and 2.5D platforming set to a complex branching narrative in the reality spanning action-adventure of Shattered - Tale of the Forgotten King.

Are you ready, Wanderer?

Features:

A new world to discover: Explore a gorgeously rendered semi-open world with branching paths and mysterious secrets. Each new zone tells a story through stunning art direction and finely crafted design.

Monstrous enemies to defeat: Observe your foes, anticipate their moves and use their own attacks against them. Switch between close-combat sword fights and long distance spell slinging to dominate the battlefield, and experience seamless transitions between full 3D and 2.5D battles.

A tale 10 years in the making: The universe of Shattered is the culmination of over a decade’s worth of imagination and creativity: an epic reality conjured from the minds at Redlock Studio. Tale of the Forgotten King is but a first step into the world of Hypnos, with more games already planned.

A story all your own: Not all survivors of Hypnos are trustworthy: though most will help you on your way, there are those who seek to use you for their own ends. The world will remember the choices you make during your adventure, and only those with focus and dedication will see through to the truth beyond.

Constant progression: Whether through combat or exploration, the Wanderer will evolve. How is up to you. With your finite resources will you raise your strength or discover another truth of Hypnos? Buy a new weapon, or increase your spellcasting? The choice is yours but choose carefully: not every path can be taken.

« 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 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. »

Shattered - Tale of the Forgotten King (STotFK) is an open world-ish RPG that is heavily inspired by the souls-like games made by Fromsoftware. Like any souls-like game, this game has a dense and obtuse story and lore that makes it really hard to describe what is happening in the game and even less why it is happening… But basically you are inside a simulation and you have to kill bosses because reasons… If you want to know what this game’s story is, look for a video about it, because frankly I didn’t understand it well. In order to save you time reading this review I would like to mention that his game is an ambitious indie game made by a studio of around 10 people and it is really janky. If you are allergic to jank, this game is not for you. **Questions you might have if you're interested in playing it:** *What is it exactly that you do in the game?* Like most games inspired by the Dark Souls saga: you explore dangerous dungeons, fight hard trash enemies and bosses, find cool secrets, go back to your base to level up and improve your gear. There is also the “if you die you drop all your currency”, “all enemies respawn after dying or resting at a bonfire” and “limited healing items” mechanics. STotFK offers very simple platforming and combat mechanics that are really not worth explaining. If you ever played any 3D platformer or souls-like game in the last 10 years you will be very familiar with them. *Will it make my eyes bleed?* I love this game’s art style, everything is screenshot material. Just be aware that STotFK uses low-poly models and if you are looking for “visual fidelity” this game offers none. I think this game is practically visually perfect: from the very simple but good looking character models, to the stylish and very expressive 2D sprites that are used to represent characters in cut scenes and the stunningly beautiful levels with great lighting and impossibly beautiful architecture… Everything is a pleasure to look at. *Does it have a good story?* I don’t think this applies for this genre of games. STotFK is a bit different from the norm and gives you walls of text to flesh out the work, but most of it is cryptic and written to be vague or open to interpretation. All I can say is that I liked the setting, but as for “story” I don’t feel qualified to say if it is good or not. *Does it have a good soundtrack?* It’s rather boring, not bad, just extremely bland. When you are exploring, the OST does its work and gives you something...
