Welcome to a new playthrough of A Fragment of Her. This is a point and click adventure game about an art student called Selina. Selina decided to go study under her favorite artist. As always you can watch this playthrough at the bottom of this post. Also you can go download the game here.
The game begins in what seems like a waiting room for admission to the university. We click on a few painting on the wall and Selina gives us some commentary on what she thinks. We approach the secretary and she angrily tells us we should sit and wait. When we sit down, professor Seligmann (Selina’s favorite artist) comes into the room.
He comes in and seems quite full of himself. He asks for each of the other student’s paintings and gives quite harsh criticism. He finally gets to us and it seems he likes our painting at first. Our fate ends up being the same as everyone else’s. Selina doesn’t go down without a fight though. We manage to persuade him to allow us into his class.
The next day we start our lesson. All of classes will be held in the library. Seligmann explains that each week Selina must improve her art from the previous week. If she doesn’t improve she will be kicked out of the class. Seligmann seems to love woman’s body parts.
Selina is worried about how she is going to manage each week. She decided that it would be a good idea to get some help from the other students in her class. Unfortunately they don’t want to talk to her at all. We decide to talk to a student siting by the window. His name is Tomoko and he is quite happy to talk to us. He tells us to not worry about the other students but also he somewhat gives us a slight warning to be careful around Seligmann.
Tomoko tells us that there are some books we can use to help improve our art. His last roommate had two books. He could not remember the names so we end up having to look for them. We make Selina look around and get some names of a few books. When we had looked everywhere we went back to talk to Tomoko about the names we found. After some discussion we find one of the books we need and find out that the other in out on loan.
Selina gets the book and goes home. When she gets home she goes to her canvas and begins drawing her piece for the week. The book seems to have helped her understand more about art and what she needs to do. We also find out that Selina has nightmares, not really sure about what though.
We finish up the painting and take it to class. We give our painting to Seligmann. He finds our painting dark and creepy. He says that our painting feels like it goes under a person’s skin. His last words are to remember to consider the viewer. Selina seems quite down about the review. We go talk to Tomoko and he cheers us up some. Tomoko tells us that since Seligmann says art should consider the viewer, we should paint something that Seligmann likes. We come to the conclusion that we should try to study Seligmann’s style.
To study the paintings we need to buy a camera and take photos of the art. We go home to get our bank card passcode to buy the camera. This is where the episode ends.
