Not For Broadcast is an immersive, narrative-driven propaganda sim that lets you
set the agenda. Mix four camera feeds, choose the headlines, bleep the bad
language - all under the pressure of a live broadcast. Will you censor the news
and be rewarded, or expose the truth and live with the consequences?
- Frame the picture - Keep the general public entertained with your
editing skills. You are the artist and the broadcast is your canvas.
- Keep it PG - Censor swear words… or “unapproved” information.
Keep the news safe for children and oppressive political regimes alike.
- Hand-pick the headlines - Their public image is in your hands:
run the story of a footballer's new beau, or his last dodgy night at the
pub? His marriage and his life are in your hands.
- Cue the ads - Watch your bank balance soar or dive based on what
advertisements you run. Customer satisfaction not guaranteed.
- The show must go on! - Keep broadcasting no matter the cost. News
stops for no-one, not even a category 5 storm!
- Keep them laughing as you go - The stress of playing a part in
this twisted political turmoil getting you down? Sit back and relax - The
National Nightly News team will take you from laughter to dread in the
course of a commercial break.
