Shattered Haven is a horror-themed adventure game. It is set in a post-apocalyptic world where zombie creatures known as Grays wander across the earth. The few remaining survivors of the zombie apocalypse live in zones of relative safety known as Havens.
[adsense250itp]The game’s main protagonists, Dave and Mary Williams, live with their daughter in one such zone within the confines of a fenced off five acre farm. Things have remained calm for the family until they take in a young boy whose mother is killed by the Grays. In a series of unfortunate events, the Williams farm is destroyed and the boy and girl taken hostage. With no home and desperate to save their children, Dave and Mary travel the Gray infested plains entangled in a conflict between two opposing eldritch monsters. The fate of the children and the fate of their world depends on them.
Players must help the hapless couple across nearly 100 levels using various traps, weapons and tools to clear all the Grays. Both strategy and speed are required to rid all levels of the abominations to advance through the game and help the Williams survive. Gamers can take on this task alone or with the help of a second player who can play with another gamepad, on the same keyboard or with a mix of both. No matter what, the game will be challenging with levels ranging across multiple difficulties.
The game’s story unfolds both in-game and through many illustrated cutscenes. It features full voiceovers and a chilling musical soundtrack. How well gamers play and perform determines how the tale will play out. With multiple branching paths leading to one of several endings, the adventures of the Williams family can end on a joyful note or a tragic one.
If the main game isn’t enough, players can take more control using the game’s editor. It allows players to create custom levels and cutscenes.
