Explore a simulation of the web in this 3D puzzle adventure.
Mexican trio of developers at indie studio Dynamic Media Triad announced today the upcoming release of their single-player puzzle adventure game set in a 3D simulation of the internet, Broken Reality. This first-person, ultra colourful adventure will be out on PC on November 29th.
Broken Reality presents itself as a parody of the internet players will explore and traverse in search of adventures and hilarious situations. The game was kickstarted with a total of 549 backers that pledged a total of USD $14,681 in order to get Broken Reality a… reality.
The world we’re presented with is called Geo City and is a creation of a supercorp called NATEM, which decided to provide a new experience for internet users, transforming the standard 2D screen with a full 3D environment, much like what the book Ready Player One proposed in its fictional universe.
The dark secrets of the net await to be uncovered by us while we meet its characters, engage in lunatic dialogues, solve puzzles and complete quests. Enter shops, buy stuff, play games and find out the truth about Geo City and NATEM’s creation.
“Broken Reality is a first-person puzzle/adventure game set in a world where Internet sites are 3D places rather than 2D pages. The player takes control of a nameless, faceless user who has just created their account on the system. The gameplay is in itself a commentary on the state of the internet, social media, truth and more in the post-truth era, while also being a light-hearted parody of many famous internet sites, corporations, and activities.”, described Sebastian Covacevich, Lead Game Designer at Dynamic Media Triad.
