Publishing label No More Robots and British development studio Broken Bear Games are today proud to announce Family Man, a first-person story-led RPG that asks the question: When pushed to the limits of your own morality, how far would you go for the sake of your family?
You owe money to the mob, and you’ve got 30 days to pay it back. Will you flip burgers and earn an honest living while scrapping the money together… or will you take on some dirty jobs for more cash, but potentially push your family away?
Family Man takes place in a quaint seaside village, where regular people are going about their everyday lives, unaware of your situation. Players can choose to help their fellow neighbors, earning rewards and bonuses for gaining their trust… or ruin their lives through various cartel jobs.
It’s your life. For every decision that Family Man throws at you, there are different ways to handle it. Your moral compass must guide you, leading you to earn cash the legal, more difficult way — or instead break a few laws here and there.
Every decision you make not only affects the neighborhood, but also directly affects your family. Your choices impact how your family sees you, and can lead to your household becoming stronger than ever… or the breakdown of your marriage and relationship with your son.
Family Man requires a careful balance of help and hinderance, for those players who want to survive the month. Will you rack up the cash to pay off the mob… or will you find yourself six feet under?
Family Man will launch in 2019 for PC and consoles. A closed PC beta will happen late 2018, through the official Family Man Discord — anyone interested can sign up now.
