Wow, time really flies... It's been 5 years since I've created my first version of Shattered Hourglass which was pretty atrocious game on its core.

I've decided to take my game on a next level~ Gotta add a new chapter, some QoL changes, new end game content and hopefully getting a music composer for it. If everything goes well, I can even make a sequel of Shattered Hourglass. If you want to be a part of my journey you can support Shattered Hourglass from now on!


Thank you very much for your feedbacks in the past 5 years.

Optional choices is always good :)
I'm currently adding more optional choices, some of based on conversion based, your choices lead you somewhere.
Oh I've added animals in some city, they look great :D
Have you played TBOL? Your villian that appears at your front door is their main character. I got a kick outta that.
Sadly, no I haven't, but I'll check it tomorrow. Hope you're having great time in "Icdalen". ^.^
Fun game, some hard bosss as advertised. I feel the need to celebrate after every victory though.
In the first town a guy mentions a hand axe. Is this a quest? If so wheres the axe?
It's a mini side quest. You can find Hand Axe in Chapter 2., an Item shop selling it for a cheap price, if you don't buy it from that Npc you might miss it ^.^
Ah thanks ok cool. I just got the third character. Fun fun. Is the ability to own a house in this demo?
Yes you can get a upgradable house, with total 8 upgrade; you can upgade your house's outside/inside, can own an armory and item shop and a small music room. I'll post more house upgrades in later versions. ^.^ I'm currently uploading new version of game, fixed some bugs and added conversion based side quest in front of Lulu's house, new version will be up in 30 minute. I'm glad you enjoyed ^.^
Oh great ill grab the new download then.
0.5.6 version up, with new 2 side quest and 5 optional bosses and 1 temporary character for side quest ^.^
White mage robe puts your health at 15 lol.
Also ive found the ghoul guy in the grave stones, snowman, and undead life leech attack guys. Im working on hidden bosses.
EDIT: Just found magic water on that bridge...very sneaky. Also saw another jester in that ice town for 4000. Im saving up.
Also found secret behind the king....very sneaky. :)
Ah dang! White Mage robe supposed to max your hp +%2, now I've checked...it reduce your max hp to %2. My bad, thanks for finding out :D
Secret rewards are often great and rewarding, I love sneaky stuff :) Have you got "A letter" key item?
Ill have to check but i dont think so. I am like 8/8 with quizs and have yet to use that urn.
Talk to Lulu then leave the house, you'll see "a letter" on ground, save your game before using that Urn :P
