Propaganda sim Not For Broadcast Announces March 23rd Release Date

The National Nightly News is upgrading its transmitters and reaching homes far and wide this year. Developers NotGames and publisher tinyBuild are bringing the scathingly satirical news-editing adventure Not For Broadcast to Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest Pro, SteamVR, Xbox One, Series S/X plus PlayStation 4 & 5 consoles on March 23rd, 2023.

Accompanying the multi-platform debut of this darkly comedic indie hit (a finalist for the 2023 IGF grand prize with over 400,000 copies sold on PC) comes the game’s first expansion; the Live & Spooky DLC, bringing a highly replayable (and possibly supernatural) special broadcast to a television set near you.

Not For Broadcast immerses players in the slightly unhinged world of British live broadcast television. Set in a slightly off-kilter alternate 1980s, players take on the role of editor for Channel One’s National Nightly News show. With no time to plan, your job is to make sure the show goes on, no matter how temperamental the newscasters or guests get. Pick the perfect camera angle, bleep out any swearing (or dangerous ideas), and make the occasional minor editorial decision that may or may not alter the course of history.

Despite the stressful and chaotic job you’ll be doing, live news editing is made easy thanks to the patented Channel One editing deck interface. Switch video feeds with a single button, clear up static with an easy tuner interface, and pick just the right sponsor’s tapes to run during breaks. Just keep an eye on the ratings – you’re in the business of attention, so keep your audience on the edge of their seats.

The new Live & Spooky DLC takes players back to the Channel One editing room for a new, highly replayable special broadcast, this time taking news anchor Patrick Bannon and crew to an abandoned backlot owned by his late father. Rumor has it that it’s haunted following a murder long ago, but that’s patently ridiculous. There’s no such thing as ghosts, obviously. And definitely, no deep, dark secrets to be uncovered.
