After making a brief appearing on Square Enix Collective, Shattered: Tale of The Forgotten King took to Kickstarter in an effort to fundraise $87,748 USD. Today, developer Redlock Studio has announced that it has hit its goal, as well as released a second trailer for the game.
Shattered: Tale of The Forgotten King is set in a strange and shattered world, ruled by Elder Gods. Shattered: Tale of The Forgotten King follows the “Wanderer” on his journey to find memories of his past.
Gameplay typically consists of 2D platforming and puzzle solving, but, the game switches over to a 3D action format where you will dodge, roll, and build up combos in a hack n’ slash-type style for it’s 12 boss fights.
Shattered: Tale of The Forgotten King also mentions a RPG leveling system, a crafting system, and a language that you will learn through your journey. The more of the Demiurges’ mysterious language you are able to learn, the more complete and clear the game’s ending will be.
With 5 days left on the campaign Redlock Studio is hoping to reach some stretch goals, the first of which will add dubbing and some additional bosses.
Maxime René, Redlock Studio’s Creative Director added the following:
“Reaching this first funding goal is opening a lot of opportunities for us – all this thanks to the community that helped us get to this point. We’re now focused on the last few days of the campaign, to increase the scope of the project and realize our dream of making Shattered! It’s a big first step for the gigantic universe we’re hoping to develop, for (and with) the community.”
Shattered: Tale of The Forgotten King is in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. No details on the official release date just yet.
At first the trailer looks kind of disappointing compared to the one for Agony, which also recently had a Kickstarter campaign. However, half way through the video it switches to the games 3D mode and simply blows your mind. This is definitely going to be a good one.
