A small team is about ready to deliver you a few thrills and chills.
The Shattering

The small development team of Super Sexy Software has teamed up with publisher Deck13 Spotlight to announce a release date for their upcoming "psychological thriller." Their game is called The Shattering and it now has a firm release date set for April 21. It will be released on the PC through Steam, where you can presently add it to your wishlist.

The Shattering is a passion project born from a group of five friends. Some of the initial ideas for the game actually began back in 2013. Studies on the contrast of black and white in the horror genre by Marta Szymańska serve as the basis for the core theme in The Shattering. Instead of the tried and true cliche of using darkness, the game's theme focuses on how white can strike fear by hiding information from the viewer.
