Post-apocalyptic narrative-driven RPG Broken Roads reveals new character origins video

Independent game studio Drop Bear Bytes has revealed an all-new video introducing one of the player character origin stories for their upcoming isometric RPG Broken Roads, ahead of its upcoming launch on Steam, PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

Set in the Australian post-apocalyptic outback, players will choose between one of four classes: the Hired Gun, Barter Crew, Jackaroo, and Surveyor. This latest video introduces the Jackaroo, who was raised by the manager of a remote station after being ditched there by their parents. After the station hands taught the Jackaroo how to hunt, use tools, and care for animals, they were killed by raiders. Now the Jackaroo is on the move, looking for a new place to settle down, using the skills they were taught to survive.

About Broken Roads

Broken Roads is a narrative-driven RPG that brings exploration, strategic turn-based combat and meaningful philosophical choices to an all-new Australian post-apocalyptic setting. Broken Roads skillfully blends traditional and all-new role-playing elements on top of a classless system offering near-unlimited character development options built around four philosophies: Humanist, Utilitarian, Machiavellian, and Nihilist. Furthermore the game presents players with an original morality system: the Moral Compass which sees dialogue options and questing decisions influence, and be influenced by, a character’s philosophical leaning and the tough decisions they make along the way.

Broken Roads’ locations are all authentic recreated from the team visiting towns and landmarks in West Australia and taking photos, videos and audio recordings for it to be as true as possible. Furthermore, even the game’s atmospheric soundtrack composed by Tim Sunderland is composed with instruments constructed from everyday objects which brings a wholly unique and distinctive tone to the game.
