There's a fascinating story here, but it's seemingly stretched out just to justify a price point comparable to That Dragon, Cancer, at the expense of quality.

A beautiful, smart, mature and emotionally deep experiment in interactive narration. If you're looking for "traditional" gameplay, though, stay as far as possible from it.

In the end, Fragments of Him is a well thought out story that ultimately is undone by its gameplay choices.

As a videogame, Fragments of Him falters far too often, providing very little interactivity, and dragging things out to pad the brief runtime. Yet there's something here worth experiencing from a narrative perspective. This is a well-written eulogy of a recently deceased man by the people whose lives intertwined with his, covering his flaws, strengths, and sexuality in frank and brutal fashion.

Fragments of Him is a walking simulator that tells the story of Will, a bisexual young man worried about falling into the routine and dying in a car accident. The storytelling takes place indirectly, through monologues on staggered timelines and recited by people who have been more intimate. A narrative at times exceptional and exciting, but spoiled by a technical realization closer to the demos of the indie scene.

Fragments of Him feels like an uncomplete package, a short and quite disappointing experience that fails to go satisfyingly deeper in its characters development and move us.

Fragments of Him deals with a complex theme, not so easily represented in videogames: death. During the two-hour long path that leads the player to the end, the Sassybot team ask us to reflect on the sense and the consequences of the loss, but also on the value of objects and memories. Wheter or not Fragments of Him was able to reach its goal may be subjective, but the game and the concept are still admirable.

A game about love, loss and the human condition, Fragments of Him is a quality, narrative-driven affair with a message. It is, however, more of an interactive movie than a game, not to mention one that moves at a very slow pace. As such, it won't be for everyone.

A heart-wrenching tale that would have been better off as a film than a video game.

A walking simulator-esque introspective visit into a young man's life.
