Fragments of Him is a short and emotional game that tells the story of a man trying to come to terms with the loss of his lover who died suddenly in a car crash. The prototype was originally created for Ludum Dare and is now in development for a full release that expands it’s scope to explore how the whole family copes with the death.
The Prototype focuses on the young mans lover, who tries to cope with his loss by eliminating everything that reminds him the deceased. The gameplay is fairly basic, with you clicking on items and making them disappear, but it’s the heartfelt narrative that really draws you in. With a full playthrough taking less than 10 minutes, it’s well worth giving Fragments of Him a go, it’s an interesting and affecting experience with some pretty intense emotional moments.

Ashen is an action RPG about a wanderer in search of a place to call home. There is no sun and the natural light that exists comes from eruptions that cover the land in ash. This is a world where nothing lasts, no matter how tightly you cling to it.
At its core, Ashen is about forging relationships.
Players can choose to guide those they trust to their camp, encouraging them to rest at the fire and perhaps remain. People you meet out in the world will have unique skills and crafting abilities to bolster your chances of survival.
Together, you might just stand a chance.
