Ministry of Broadcast marries an adventure game with a platform title; the game was developed by a team under the same name, Ministry of Broadcast, and published by Hitcents and Playism. The game was inspired by such iconic works as Prince of Persia (1989), Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus and George Orwell's distopian novel 1984. The game tells the story of a totalitarian citizen of a state who has to take part in a quiz show in order to join his family.

Plot

Ministry of Broadcast presents the story of a totalitarian state citizen. Surprisingly and without warning, the country is divided by a wall. Our hero becomes 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

Ministry of Broadcast is a combination of adventure and platform game with elements of solving environmental puzzles.

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

We must pay special attention to the surroundings. Careful 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 screen. There are no health bars, minimap or text walls in the game - all the information we need is woven into the world around us.

Game modes

Ministry of Broadcast is a single-player game.

Technical aspects

Ministry of Broadcast features well-fitting and solid pixel art visuals, dominated by dirty and gray colors, harmonizing with the atmosphere of a soulless and ubiquitous totalitarian state.
