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...


The action takes place in the early 1990s in French Brittany. “Several years ago a never-before-recorded sound from the depths of the abyss is picked up by seismographs around the world. Amidst the cold war and political tensions, the world's powers accuse each other of experimenting with new military technologies in secret. December 1991, Elise and her friend Pierre flee city life to settle in a coastal village called Saint Exil. But a year after their relocation, during a simple annual celebration in the village square, an armed military force uses the element of surprise and force to kidnap a large part of the inhabitants gathered in the same place. Elise escapes and runs home, taking refuge in her house. Breathless and terrified, she faints hidden in the attic. When she wakes up, she realizes that she is now stuck, alone, within the same day that repeats itself over and over again. ”
