Sassybot‘s interactive narrative Fragments of Him stays true to human emotions in DRM-free form on GOG.
Walking simulators are here to stay if one likes it or not, and while there’s always the controversial question of “Where is the game?”, being presented with an emotional story and getting involved in its world and characters becomes the center of the experience. In the case of Fragments of Him, it’s about four people who are connected because of a tragic accident and love.
Be it Will on his last morning, his grandmother Mary who remembers his childhood, ex-girlfriend Sarah, or his partner Harry, one soon learns about his past and what it means to lose someone. It might not be the most inventive story ever told and one shouldn’t expect any puzzles or other game-y elements, but it might still be an emotional journey worth taking.
Fragments of Him was originally released in May 2016 and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 75% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, July 5, 2021, at 1 PM UTC.
