Broken Roads Devs Show Off Surveyor Class in New Video

Broken Roads

Broken Roads is shaping up to be a promising game from Australian developers Drop Bear Bytes. Its narrative-driven gameplay harkens back to classic RPGs of the 80s and 90s while still featuring some advanced mechanics and a gorgeous art style that plants it firmly alongside more modern games.

We get to see some of this in a brand new dev commentary video that shows off one of the first origin story lines of the game for the Surveyor class. Game Director Craig Ritchie is joined by Creative Lead Colin McComb and Audio Lead Tim Sunderland as they play through the town of Aldersyde. We get to see some dialogue choices while the devs give more details about how everything works together.

Colin McComb explains in the video how the origin stories relate to each other through a matrix of sorts created by Narrative Lead Leanne Taylor-Giles. “Even if you are playing this origin story character, there’s still other origin stories, essentially, where things are happening beyond what we see on screen,” McComb says.

Craig Ritchie then goes on to explain the importance of intent in relationship to how the moral compass works. He then touches on how religion has evolved in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Broken Roads as they show off a few real-world locations that have been impressively recreated in the game.

As the video wraps up, McComb talks more about this Surveyor class and how rewarding it can be to play. “There are paths you can take that won’t be open to other players,” he teases.
