Broken Roads is a story-rich role-playing game set in an apocalyptic Australian setting. From Drop Bear Bytes and Versus Evil, the game is in development for PC via Steam, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch and is set to launch in 2023.
The official trailer for Broken Roads showcases the story-rich narrative elements, gameplay mechanics, and general storyline.
Broken Roads is an upcoming debut title from Drop Bear Bytes, an Australian indie studio. This single-player game blends traditional and all-new RPG elements to create an immersive narrative with unlimited character development options.
As players travel across the desolated and post-apocalyptic Australian lands, an exciting feature they will experience is the game’s Moral Compass. The moral compass shows how a character’s philosophical leaning influences dialogue options and quest decisions. The morality system is based on the four areas of moral philosophy: Utilitarianism, Nihilism, Machiavellianism, and Humanism.
From a 360-degree chart, players can choose from the four areas to establish their character’s core alignments. Your choices and dialogue options will also influence your moral compass and influence your future choices and options.
The moral system was developed to establish an element of realism in the game’s role-playing elements. Decisions will not be labeled as good or bad. Players must face moral dilemmas head-on and think about the best option for themselves. It’s also important to note that you can’t suddenly make a good choice after making a bad one.
The key features of Broken Roads include:
- An all-new post-apocalyptic setting
- Authentic Australian locations and environments
- Moral System that influences your choices, character development, and quests.
- Traditional and new RPG mechanics.
- Tactical turn-based combat
- Beautiful, hand-drawn artwork
