Broken Roads

Indie developer Drop Bear Bytes has announced a release date for Broken Roads, their post-apocalyptic narrative RPG, finally locking the game in for launch.

Broken Roads is launching on April 10th across Windows PC (via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is planned for sometime later.

“We appreciate the community’s patience in allowing us to give Broken Roads the polish and attention it needed to get to the finish line,” Drop Bear Bytes game director Craig Ritchie said. “Broken Roads is now in its best state ever, with more polish, more voice acting, over 400,000 words of dialogue and more than 150,000 end-game permutations. We hope you all have an amazing time playing it.”

Broken Roads creative lead Colin McComb added, “Broken Roads is a damn big deal. Post apocalyptic, deep conversations, applied philosophy, weirdness wired in, and Australia? Yeah, this game has got it all.”

Here’s a rundown on the previously announced game, plus a new trailer:

Born of a love for traditional computer role-playing, Broken Roads provides a rich, engaging narrative in which players make their way across a desolated future Australia. Blending together traditional and all-new role-playing elements on top of a classless system offering nearly unlimited character development options, Broken Roads presents players with an original morality system: the Moral Compass. This novel design sees dialogue options and questing decisions influence, and be influenced by, a character’s philosophical leaning.
