Numskull Games is incredibly proud to announce that they will be publishing Ministry of Broadcast for the Nintendo Switch.
This award-winning and much-anticipated game will be available physically this May.
Enter the dystopian world of Ministry of Broadcast, a narrative-driven single-player cinematic platformer. Ministry of Broadcast mixes George Orwell’s 1984 with modern reality TV.
Story and Personality
In a country divided by ‘The Wall’, you must compete on (and win) a reality TV show broadcast by the Regime to cross over and reunite with your family.
Featuring lots of impish humour, grade-A sarcasm, and comic mischief, all balanced perfectly with the dark, heavy themes presented in this dystopian world.
Run, jump, crash, and climb your way through each Arena as the narrative unfolds around you. Smoothly integrated animation sequences help tell its intricate story, as well as environmental storytelling, and NPC dialogue as you dive and dodge around them.
Rather than a screen cluttered with overlaid indicators, HP bars, and mini-maps, any information the player will need is incorporated into the environment.
Hints and clues subtly mesh into the game’s art. Players will need a keen eye if they want to survive each Arena without breaking their legs!
Use your wits – and at times a dash of ruthlessness – to advance through the Arenas.
You’ll have to interact with the environment itself to solve most of the puzzles: use the protagonist’s momentum to move platforms, flip the occasional lever, and even sacrifice an NPC or two to cross spiky pits.
