'Broken Veil' Announced, Kickstarter Planned For Q2 - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 4, 2021 @ 6:00 a.m. PDT

Broken Veil is a 3D puzzle/platformer set post-soviet Russia, a dangerous place for adults and even more so for a young boy who cannot find his mother.

Inspired by Little Nightmares, experience a dark and mysterious post-Soviet Russian town through the eyes of a small child as he searches for his lost mother, a puzzle-platformer that will keep players on the edge of their gaming chairs with its horror and survival gameplay

Broken Veil tells the story of a scared young boy searching for his mother following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Highlighting the struggles of those with Prosopagnosia (face blindness), Broken Veil’s young protagonist cannot easily recognise and distinguish facial features. His condition ensures that Broken Veil is no ordinary horror game, as Sinsitrum Games uses the uncertainty of his condition to pack its platform puzzles with terror in an ever-evolving gameplay experience. Gameplay will also be enhanced by offering players help in the form of cats that can solve puzzles, traverse unreachable spaces and calm players down when the atmosphere gets too tense. Players must learn not to let their fears get the best of them as they run, hide and solve problems within the unfamiliar locations they find themselves in.  

The uncomfortable and terrifying surroundings of Broken Veil focus on a small provincial Russian town in the middle of nowhere. Sinsitrum Games has drawn upon its familiarity with the era to create an authentically stylised landscape that will pay homage to the distinctive post-Soviet feel of a small rural town in the world’s largest country. Apartment blocks, abandoned construction sites and a dilapidated orphanage all hide more than meets the eye. Are you brave enough to find out exactly who, or even what, lurks within?

Sinsitrum Games plans to launch a Broken Veil kickstarter campaign in Q2 2021.

Key Features:

  • Realistic scenery of the small Russian town, throughout the eyes of the little boy. Enjoy recognizable entourage of the era inspired by real places of the time.
  • Cats are kids best friends! Felines are more than willing to help our hero solve puzzles. With a trusty laser pointer – a popular toy during the 90s, you can control their movements and make them go where you can not. Don’t forget to pet the kitty for their help!
  • Travel from the great heights to the lowest crawls to reach his goal. Various locations filled with puzzles, obstacles, and dangers fitting for the surroundings. You will have to use wits, agility, and guts to finish this journey, and don't let your fears get the best of you!

Broken Veil is coming to PC (Steam) in 2021.
