Here, we’re projecting an absorbed guard behind another.

We’ve just run through the gameplay prototype for Fragment, and it’s fascinating stuff. The game’s new stealth mechanic involves absorbing guards and then projecting a doppleganger of said guard into the level – but the player has the ability to hot-swap between the guard’s position and their own at will. The projected guard can also be controlled independently and simultaneously.

For a short demonstration, check the video below:

Thanks, IndieStatik.
