You won’t have to hound a specific limited-release website to get your hands on a physical Switch copy of PM Studios’ Ministry Of Broadcast. This action platformer is getting published on its own — and looking good while doing so!
All those who preorder Ministry of Broadcast on Switch will receive a limited-edition Steelbook version of the game, packaged in an O-sleeve. The steel comes free of charge…a preorder copy is the same as a standard copy at $39.99.
As for the game itself, you’re attempting to escape a totalitarian regime by leaping, crawling and climbing through a series of brutal arenas. As you play, the game’s narrative will spin automatically alongside you. No waiting through cutscenes here!
- Cinematic Platforming: Run, jump, climb, and smash your way through each Arena while events unfold around you. Much of the story is revealed through seamlessly integrated animation sequences, environment details, or NPCs dropping bits of dialogue and you sneak, dive, and dodge around them.
- Environmental HUD: Instead of a screen cluttered with distracting indicators, minimaps, and HP bars overlaying the action, all the information the player will need is incorporated directly into the environment. Important hints and clues are subtly incorporated into the game’s art, so players will need a keen eye if they want to get through each Arena unscathed.
- Puzzle Solving: You’ll need to use your wits, and sometimes a dash of ruthlessness, to advance through each deadly Arena. Much of the puzzle-solving requires you to interact directly with the environment; use your own momentum to move platforms, find and flip the right levers, and maybe sacrifice an NPC or two in order to get across an extra spiky pit.
- Story and Personality: The game features a heavy dose of impish humor, grade-A sarcasm, and comic mischief, balanced against the dark, heavy themes of a thoroughly dystopian world.
Ministry Of Broadcast goes physical on the same day as its digital Switch release, April 28.
