About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

In Broken Pieces, players take on the role of Elise, who must unravel the mystery of why she keeps repeating the same day over and over again.

Broken Pieces is an action-packed investigative and adventure video game set in France in the 1990s. The game immerses players in the shoes of Elise, who left urban life to settle down with her fiancé in the village of Saint-Exil.

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.

During a simple annual celebration in the village square, an armed military force uses the element of surprise and force to kidnap village inhabitants. Elise escapes and takes refuge in her house. Breathless and terrified, she faints 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. Elise will have to investigate to unravel the mysteries surrounding the region of Saint-Exil, its ritualistic cult and its lighthouse overlooking the coast.

Key Features:

  • An original story inside a deep thrilling atmosphere
  • A gameplay that blends action, adventure and puzzling phases
  • Change the weather around you in real time and revisit the region with a new perspective
  • Setup during the '90s and featuring a completely original dream-pop OST written for the game
  • Find the camera system that accompanied legendary sagas such as Silent Hill, in a completely revised version aimed for more flexibility.

Broken Pieces is planned for Q2 2022 on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
