Ministry of Broadcast is a combination of an adventure game with a platform game from the studio of the same name, Ministry of Broadcast, and is published by Hitcents and Playism. The game was inspired by such cultural works as Prince of Persia (1989), Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus and George Orwell's "1984" (a novel about dystopian life in the superstate of Oceania, where the government controls every aspect of everyday life).

Plot

Ministry of Broadcast presents the history of a totalitarian citizen of the state. Surprisingly and without warning, the country is divided by a wall. Our hero was thus separated from the family to which he would like to return. However, the only way to achieve this is to take part in a state-run quiz show.

Mechanics

A lot of things can kill you. As with most platformers, the Ministry of Broadcast must be prepared for the obstacles that want to take our lives away from us. Starting with traditional thorn holes and ending with burning barrels. However, not all hazards can be overcome by perfect hand-eye coordination. Some of them require to solve an environmental puzzle.

You must pay special attention to the surroundings. Urgent observation of what is happening on the monitor is not only useful in the context of solving puzzles. The whole game is constructed in such a way that we absorb the plot and the atmosphere by carefully observing what appears on the screens moving before our eyes. There are no health strips, minimap or text walls in the game - all the information you need is woven into the world around you.
