The History of NotGames
Also available today on PC and Consoles: The new Live & Spooky DLC, first of three new chapters coming in the Not For Broadcast season pass. Return to the editing room in this special show, taking news-anchor Patrick Bannon on a mysterious mission to a ‘haunted’ backlot. Clearly there’s no such thing as ghosts, but supernatural schlock makes for great ratings.
This one’s a bit more involved than your usual broadcast as you lead Patrick and crew from room to room. Whether you’re digging up old secrets or keeping things fresh with a little bit of spooky editing wizardry, this one’s in your hands, and how it all ends depends on your choices.
Not For Broadcast is out now on Xbox and PlayStation stores, accompanied by the new Live & Spooky DLC, and priced at $24.99 for the base game or $39.99 including the season pass. Not For Broadcast VR is also available separately on Steam and the Meta Quest store.
