About Not For Broadcast
Not For Broadcast is a game that shoves players to the editing desk of a live news broadcast for National Nightly News. No time to plan, no time to grab a coffee. This is live TV! You were just in there to clean the room, and now look at you! You better pick the right camera angles and make sure you bleep the naughty words! The changes you make could alter the course of history! Or, at the very least, your bank account.
Managing live TV sounds intense, but Not For Broadcast launch eases the pain with a fun, easy-to-use interface. Switch between video feeds with a single button press. Choose sponsor tapes to run and clear up static. Be sure to keep an eye on the ratings! We all know nothing is worse than poor ratings and snoozing viewers.
The game takes place in an alternate reality 1980s. The country is steadily spiraling towards dystopia. The National Nightly News team documents the latest political scandal, the rise of a radical government, and which celebrity has for some reason written a book about it all.
A record-setting launch
Not For Broadcast has already a large number of positive reviews in addition to already selling over 300,000 copies. Today’s release also brings with it the third and final story chapter. The new chapter brings three new broadcasts coupled with multiple endings.
In addition, the launch update brings Not For Broadcast’s full-motion video quantity to a staggering 42 hours, 57 minutes, and 52 seconds. That is a certified and legitimate Guinness World Record.
