A headline of words many of us have probably wanted strung together at one time or another. After all, the genre effectively started in Australia, and it's not like we don't have both the setting for it, geographically. But also our history, culture and landmarks go a long way to really making it difficult to look past Australia as pretty much the perfect setting for a post-apocalyptic game. And thankfully, that's what developer Drop Bear Bytes knows as well, giving us Broken Roads.

I was sold on this inside the first few seconds with the words "my Nan called it, 'the end of time'", and then just got pulled in more and more. Not just with the polished state of the trailer and its overall delivery, but also in the info the Torquay-based studio alongside publisher, Team 17, shared as part of the reveal.

Here's more:
Broken Roads [is] an original and 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.

At the heart of Broken Roads’ thoughtful and mature storylines is a deep and meaningful morality system – the Moral Compass – that influences quests, dialogue, and character development. The system is shaped along four different philosophical paths: Humanist, Utilitarian, Machiavellian, and Nihilist, each with their own unique traits. As the journey begins, players will be asked a series of questions – moral quandries – that determine their starting position on the compass. Decisions made throughout the game will then shift their philosophical leaning and affect future choices, quests, and reactions from the people they meet.

Broken Roads key features:
  • Deep and compelling: Broken Roads builds on classic single-player role-playing games, blending traditional gameplay with original mechanics and experiences
  • Moral Compass: A unique system that influences both story and gameplay as the plot unfolds
  • Authentic setting: Explore real-world locations across a post-apocalyptic Western Australia filled with intriguing and emotional stories
  • Unique visual and musical styles: Hand-drawn visuals and a soundtrack composed with instruments constructed from everyday objects help make the world of Broken Roads vibrant and alive.
