Currently in development Broken Roads, developers Drop Bear Bytes have launched their Steam page, showcasing their debut title.

It’s pre-alpha footage for this indie isometric RPG for a game that was announced last year, a game set in a ravaged future Australia, the characters adhere to a Moral Compass where they can influence and be influenced based on their philosophical leaning. 

I’m incredibly proud of the leaps and bounds the team have made since we revealed Broken Roads…. We’ve had our heads down working on a range of new characters, locations, quests and game features and it’s great to share a little of that for everyone at gamescom.

Broken Roads is scheduled for release in late 2021, but it’s totally worth it, bruh, considering this bespoke Moral Compass mechanic as I need to realign my own. It’ll be heading to the PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and some Microsoft machine.
