Fragments of Him

released on May 03, 2016

Fragments of Him is a narrative game played in the first person. The story revolves around a tragic accident, and the life of the victim and his loved ones before and after the incident. The player plays through the events and the locations as if they were the spirit or intellect of the characters, making decisions and starting actions that progress the story. Through this snapshot of their lives we see that when a young man suddenly dies, left behind there will always be Fragments of Him.

I would be lying if I said this game didn't make me cry, and I really wanted to like it, but it falls in the 'queer character dies and from there on we try to tell a story and morality about queer inclusiveness' trope too much imo.
Like... LGBT people shouldn't need the 'excuse' of suffering a tragic accident to appear in a story specially written for them. It's like when writers make a female character go through a rape past or situation as a way of character development to make them become 'stronger'.
