Remothered: Broken Porcelain Dev Diary Dives Into Gameplay & Story
After being announced last August, there have been very few details surrounding the sequel to 2018’s award-winning Remothered: Tormented Fathers, with only a teaser trailer being released since its announcement. That all changes today, with the release of the first official Dev Diary for the game, which showcases the first live gameplay shown as of yet, with a large focus on stealth and using the environment to survive, much like the first Remothered.
Sleeker and updated with better performance and all-around visual upgrades, the creator Chris Darril explains how much better the game is turning out now that he has a dedicated team to help with Broken Porcelain from the start. Darril also goes more in-depth about some of the influences and themes the game will feature, citing film classics like Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby, Hitchcock’s Psycho, and showing some very strong nods to Italian horror master Dario Argento’s Suspiria and Inferno.
He further explains that the central core of the story for Broken Porcelain is digging deeper into the themes of science vs. religion and will continue exploring more related to the production and use of the drug that was central to the plot of the first Remothered, Phenoxyl, and some of the disastrous side-effects it has on those who consume it.
The diary shows more footage of a younger Rosemary Reed from the first Remothered, sharing that we’ll meet her again and learn more about her in this installment, and it’s great to see her back in action. He further confirmed that he still has Remothered written as a trilogy, so we know there will be more of this awesome world, even beyond Broken Porcelain, which many fans will be ecstatic about.
Any Remothered fan needs to watch this diary and see how well the game is progressing, as it’s already looking like it may surpass the original game in several ways. There’s plenty of great footage here to see the game in action, and I don’t think fans will be disappointed with how it’s shaping up so far. Take a look for yourself and stay tuned for further news and hopefully a release date sometime in the near future.
