Independent game studio Drop Bear Bytes are proud to reveal their upcoming isometric RPG Broken Roads is a finalist at the Game Development World Championship 2023 Winter Season for the Best Studio Award - celebrating the best commercial game of the Season made by larger development teams.

Winners will be announced in a live award show streaming on the GDWC Youtube channel on Friday February 23rd at 17:00 GMT / 09:00 PST / 12:00 EST. Winners are decided by a jury of games industry & adjacent industry professionals, veterans, and stakeholders appointed by GDWC.

Broken Roads is a narrative-driven RPG that brings exploration, strategic turn-based combat and meaningful philosophical choices to an all-new Australian post-apocalyptic setting. Broken Roads skillfully blends traditional and all-new role-playing elements on top of a classless system offering near-unlimited character development options built around four philosophies: Humanist, Utilitarian, Machiavellian, and Nihilist. Furthermore the game presents players with an original morality system: the Moral Compass which sees dialogue options and questing decisions influence, and be influenced by, a character’s philosophical leaning and the tough decisions they make along the way.

Broken Roads’ locations are all authentic recreated from the team visiting towns and landmarks in West Australia and taking photos, videos and audio recordings for it to be as true as possible. Furthermore, even the game’s atmospheric soundtrack composed by Tim Sunderland is composed with instruments constructed from everyday objects which brings a wholly unique and distinctive tone to the game.
