French studio Elseware Experience is happy to share more content on its upcoming game Broken Pieces. An intriguing thriller set against a compelling backdrop of mysterious phenomena.
HistoryABOUT THE GAME
When Elise and her fiancé decided to leave the urban life and settle near the French coast, she could not imagine that she would end up stuck in alone in an unwelcoming village. While strange phenomena occur in a dark post-Cold War climate, Elise will have to investigate to 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. The game immerses players in the shoes of Elise, a woman in her thirties living in the village of Saint-Exil located in an imaginary region reminiscent of Brittany. Following an unexplained paranormal phenomenon, Elise is stuck, alone, and start looking for any proof of life. Your investigation begins here...ABOUT ELSEWARE EXPERIENCE
Elseware Experience is a 3 person development studio that began its history around the creation of mods on the Source Engine from Valve Software. Afterwho of them were released to considerable public appreciation, (multiple thousands of downloads from all platforms); the studio is moving towards the creation of projects on a larger scale. The studio is composed of Benoit Dereau, art director and level architect who worked for instance on dishonored; and Mael Vignaux, phd in physic, technical director and award winning sound designer. Thanks to the mixture of their technical know-how and knowledge of game engines, the team met an international success in terms of architectural visualization in real time and then initially focuses on the realization of a large number of these. The studio then embarked on the creation of serious games in virtual reality for educational purposes with the objective of educating citizens about ecological problems (the preservation of bees or issues around pollution). These works were the fruit of a collaboration with the European Union and are showcased in many museums around the world. With this wide array of experiences behind them, the team, now set in the heart of the Emerald Coast, has devoted themselves to the creation of their first title as an independent game developer: Broken Pieces.
