Last Broadcast

Evie Godfrey2023 Longlist, Opening Up

Last Broadcast is a 3D first-person narrative game set in a small radio station at the end of the world. Run a radio station. Talk to callers. And answer the question: How do you want to be remembered after you are gone?
Last Broadcast aims to reflect on the themes of choice and existentialism. As climate change happens at a rapid rate and our governments feel like they are not listening, many people feel helpless and isolated. How do we give ourselves agency? Can even the smallest acts of change cascade into a bigger one?
While the overall fate of the protagonist never changes, the player has control over the experience itself. The game’s interactive narrative focuses on the smaller choices you can make when interacting with the callers rather than the life-changing. At any moment the player can take a break from the calls and interact with the radio station space without consequence, focusing on the here and now and what you can change.
