New Video Spotlight on RPG’s Latest Playable Character

Drop Bear Bytes, an independent game studio, has released a new video showcasing a player character origin story for their forthcoming isometric RPG, Broken Roads. Set against the backdrop of an Australian post-apocalyptic outback, Broken Roads is gearing up for its launch on Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles. The game promises a blend of exploration, strategic turn-based combat, and narrative-driven gameplay infused with philosophical choices.

Character Origins: Meet the Jackaroo

The highlighted character origin story is that of the Jackaroo, presenting players with a glimpse into the life of one of the four playable classes. The Jackaroo’s tale begins at a remote station where, after being abandoned by their parents, they are raised by the station’s manager. Under the tutelage of the station hands, the Jackaroo learns essential survival skills, including hunting, tool use, and animal care. However, tragedy strikes when raiders kill the station hands, forcing the Jackaroo to venture into the wasteland in search of a new home, relying on the skills learned from their fallen mentors.

Gameplay and Mechanics

Broken Roads distinguishes itself with a unique approach to the RPG genre by integrating a classless system that allows for expansive character development. Players can align their characters with one of four philosophical paths: Humanist, Utilitarian, Machiavellian, or Nihilist. This alignment influences the game’s Moral Compass system, affecting dialogue options and quest decisions based on the character’s philosophical bent and the choices they face.

Authenticity and Immersion

The development team has gone to great lengths to ensure Broken Roads offers an authentic experience of the Australian post-apocalyptic setting. The game’s locations are meticulously recreated from real-world visits to towns and landmarks across West Australia, complete with photos, videos, and audio recordings. Additionally, the game’s atmospheric soundtrack, composed by Tim Sunderland, features instruments made from everyday objects, contributing to the game’s unique and immersive auditory landscape.


Broken Roads is preparing for its launch on major gaming platforms, including Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles. With its rich narrative, strategic gameplay, and innovative moral philosophy system, Broken Roads aims to offer a fresh and engaging experience for RPG enthusiasts eager to explore the post-apocalyptic Australian outback through the eyes of characters like the Jackaroo.
