Rarely do you find games these days that could be described as a combination of “ambitious,” “thought-provoking,” “hard-hitting,” “hilarious” and “extremely fun,” but somehow Not For Broadcast delivers on that front.

Quite possibly the best FMV game ever, Not For Broadcast had me both laughing and scrambling in a panic when the channel’s viewership dropped. Even if you’ve never had any interest in FMV games before, Not For Broadcast will surely change your mind.

I like Not for Broadcast, but it looks like a The Fly-style experiment grafted together from two different games. I would like very much to play either of them separately, but putting them together weakens the final product. There’s time for developer NotGames to right the ship, however, and the mechanics are intriguing enough to keep me interested in the next chapter.

Not For Broadcast is an immersive, narrative-driven propaganda sim set in the control room of a TV Studio in a 1980’s dystopia. Control what the people see and what they don’t as the government tightens its grip. Will you censor the news and be rewarded, or fight for the truth and live with the consequences?
