The Shattering is a first-person, story-driven, psychological thriller that takes place in the pristine white aesthetic of protagonist John Evans’ own dream.

You can’t remember anything. All you see is white around you. You hear a voice. You see a watch, swinging slowly in front of your eyes: “I know you think everything is alright, but tell me, how come you can’t even remember her name?”

The Shattering places you in the mind of John Evans, where you struggle to piece together the fragments of your past and present. Not remembering is one thing, but what happens when your mind leads you down the twisting path of fake memories in order to shelter you from the truth?

Follow the voice of the Doctor as it guides you deeper into your mind, and experience the key moments of John’s life that define and shape him. Discover the truth, shatter the lies, find out what happened to John… and remember her name.
