Niche Spotlight – Thea 2: The Shattering

This is Niche Spotlight. In this column, we regularly introduce new games to our fans, so please leave feedback and let us know if there’s a game you want us to cover!

Today’s Spotlight is Thea 2: The Shattering, the sequel to MuHa Games’ 2015 survival strategy game.

In the game, you are tasked with leading a small flock of believers that worship deities inspired by Slavic myths and legends. You can check out the launch trailer above.

Thea 2 mixes elements of 4X, city building, RPG, survival, and card games as you explore the land, establish settlements, and brave the natural (and unnatural) dangers of a dark fantasy world. This sequel adds a co-op mode, allowing three players to work together and spread the faith of their tribe.

Thea 2: The Shattering is available on Windows PC via Steam and GOG for $24.99, and its currently 15% off.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

Thea 2: The Shattering is a follow-up to the successful Thea: The Awakening, which brings the idea of innovative genre hybrid, with elements of turn-based, 4X strategy, survival, RPG and a card game, to entirely new and thoroughly polished level.

The player takes on a role of a deity from the Slavic mythology-inspired pantheon and as such, controls the fate of a small flock of believers struggling for survival. This goal can be achieved in many ways, from diplomacy to war, from exploring to conquering, but any playstyle will surely lead to completely unique adventures thanks to the procedurally generated environments. Rich options, from crafting to town-building system, as well as the co-op multiplayer gameplay, make Thea 2 an ideal choice for tactically minded players, who are up for a challenge.

Key Features:

  • Explore rich, procedurally generated and diverse new environments and biomes.
  • Expand your influence in the world, build towns, widen your territories or choose the much tougher path of a nomad.
  • Exterminate your way to victory, battle through the vast array of creatures or simply strive to survive till sunrise.
  • Exploit the many wonders of the land – discover and combine resources, collect materials and craft them into your equipment.
  • Become a deity of Thea and direct your Chosen to victory in a world inspired by Slavic myth and folklore.

  • Choose your playstyle – become a warlord or a diplomat, or simply remain an outsider wandering the world in search of glory.
  • Survive any way you can and choose your challenge style as you resolve conflicts via battle, mental or spiritual challenges.
