Trivia

Remothered: Broken Porcelain is the second chapter of Chris Darril's award-winning Remothered series developed by Stormind Games while in collaboration with Modus Games. It was officially announced during the 2019's Italian Video Game Awards[1] and will be released on October 13th, 2020 on PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.[2]

The game's story is linked directly to the events of Tormented Fathers, serving as both the sequel and the prequel, and takes place at the Ashmann Inn.

Summary

"After her expulsion from an all-girls boarding school, the rebellious Jen suffers an injury attempting to escape from the Ashmann Inn, where she was sent to serve as one of its maids. Together with her new friend and fellow maid, a timid violinist named Linn, Jen slowly becomes aware of the manor's unsettling history. As the two girls begin to observe strange occurrences involving the inn's residents, a haunting figure lurking within the halls, and an ominous presence from inside the hotel, the duo must escape from their prison with the truth...and their lives.

Meanwhile, the enigmatic Rosemary Reed encounters an old nemesis, the since disfigured owner of the Ashmann Inn, in her continued search for Celeste Felton - a young girl who vanished years before under unexplainable circumstances. Closer to the answers she seeks than ever before, Reed will uncover everyone's role in this twisted plot, for better or worse. [3]"

Supporting characters

Sequel

The game was meant to be followed by a third chapter, making Remothered a trilogy, however, the triquel was mostly likely cancelled due to Broken Porcelain's poor reception and Chris Darril leaving the series.

Music

The soundtrack was composed by Luca Balboni, one of the composers for Tormented Fathers.[4] Additional vocals were provided by Nina de Lianin and Satomi Yanagibashi.

The soundtrack is available for purchase as a DLC and it can be bought separately through the various platforms.

Influence

The main setting for the second chapter was notably inspired by the works of Stephen King, particularly The Shining as it takes place in a mysterious secluded hotel during winter, as well as Misery and It and their film adaptations.

The inspiration for the main protagonist Jennifer comes from the original Clock Tower and Chris Darril's favourite survival horror heroines like Rule of Rose' Jennifer and Haunting Ground's Fiona, as well as Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast, one of Chris' favorite films[5].

The game being set during winter was influenced by Chris Darril's own fear of snow and ice as he describes them as "the pure embodiment of the ephemeral, something that looks a certain way but abruptly mutates and betrays you."[6] The ice motif is featured predominantly in the game's promotional material.
