Team17 and Drop Bear Bytes have announced the development of Broken Roads. This is a narrative-rich, isometric, turn-based role-playing game set in an unforgiving, post-apocalyptic Western Australia.
Scheduled to launch on Steam and console platforms in 2022, Broken Roads presents a post-apocalypse with real-world locations and landmarks serving as the backdrop for the complex stories of Australia’s survivors.
Broken Roads and its mechanics
The system is shaped along four different philosophical paths: Humanist, Utilitarian, Machiavellian, and Nihilist. Each of these have their own unique traits. As the journey begins, players will be asked a series of questions. These are known as moral quandaries. These determine their starting position on the compass.
I have to say I am impressed. This title looks like something quite interesting and involved. The world feels genuine, unfortunately, it also feels depressing. The RPG elements look well developed so I’m excited to see how far this world can go. A surprising element is that this post-apocalyptic game set in Australia will be utilising real-world locations.
Broken Roads is now available to Wishlist on Steam.
