Not For Broadcast VR, an adaptation of the darkly comedic propaganda sim, reaches PSVR 2 this December.
An FMV adventure, Not For Broadcast takes place in an alternate 1980s Great Britain where an authoritarian political party has taken power. Playing as janitor turned broadcast editor Alex Winston, you’re tasked with ensuring live broadcasts go smoothly for National Nightly News. Between picking camera angles, censoring certain words and fixing malfunctioning hardware, tinyBuild warns “your choices will come back to haunt you.”
Released on PC VR and Quest in March, we recommended tinyBuild's propaganda sim in our Not For Broadcast VR review, praising its "top-notch story" and dark humor.
Not For Broadcast successfully balances thought-provoking writing with a mix of clever political satire, light-hearted slapstick comedy and dark humor for a hilariously captivating story. Making morally difficult choices while dealing with the stress of managing a live broadcast gives players plenty to engage with beyond the entertaining narrative.
Not For Broadcast VR arrives on December 14 on PSVR 2.
