With a powerful hand on your shoulder, the live news is yours to control!
3, 2, 1… Aaaand, we are live! The much anticipated Episode 2 of the critically-acclaimed satirical newsroom sim, Not For Broadcast, is available on Steam now!
Thrown into the eye of the storm, players will continue to be thrust into the hot-seat of the National Nightly News broadcast center – just as the country outside threatens to tear itself apart. Balancing management with clever choices, they will need to keep things together as they manage four studio live feeds, censor unwanted language on the fly and cut to ads when it all goes wrong.
Originally launched as a game using slapstick and farce to seed in a satirical commentary, Not For Broadcast’s newest chapter now takes a no-holds-barred approach to our relationship with live news, asking the question: should both sides have their say?
New Features In Episode 2:
More earth-shattering plots compared to the cheeky tone in Episode 1;
Hundreds of brand new narrative branches that will alter the situations along with your quick-second decisions;
Improved sleek gameplay mechanics;
A chance to witness how your choices affect the strength of the two political groups battling it out for the general public’s attention;
The game has doubled in size, making now the perfect time for both new and veteran players to get the news feed rolling.
About Not For Broadcast
Not For Broadcast is an immersive, narrative-driven propaganda sim that lets you set the agenda. Mix four camera feeds, choose the headlines, bleep the bad language – all under the pressure of a live broadcast. Will you censor the news and be rewarded, or expose the truth and live with the consequences?
Alongside the release of Episode 2, developer NotGames have also released a free documentary showcasing how they adapted their approach to creating a full motion video game – with a cast of 155 actors – during a global pandemic, titled Lights, Camera, Lockdown, also available via Steam.
