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). The game tells the story of a totalitarian citizen of the state who has to take part in a quiz show in order to join his family.
Ministry of Broadcast presents the history of a totalitarian citizen of the state. Surprisingly and without warning, the country is divided by a wall.

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.
Ministry of Broadcast is a single player game.
Ministry of Broadcast has a well-fitting and solidly produced pixel art design, dominated by dirty and gray colors, harmonizing with the atmosphere of a soulless and ubiquitous totalitarian state.
