Indie developer Broken Bear Games and publisher No More Robots are preparing to release Family Man on the Nintendo Switch and Xbox consoles. The upcoming game, which is a low-poly role-playing game inspired by AMC’s Breaking Bad series, asks players how far they’re willing to go for their family.
Originally released on Steam in 2020, Broken Bear and No More Robots announced a console port of Family Man in a trailer on Wednesday. Designed as an all-too-cheerful advertisement for the fictional city of Riverport, the Family Man trailer hints at the dark history lurking beneath the sunny seaside landscape. Xbox and Switch players won’t have to wait long before getting their hands on the game either: Family Man launches September 14th.
A solo indie game that tells the story of an illustrious father who finds himself deeply indebted to the local mafia. With just three weeks to pay back, players will have to make tough decisions if they want to save their family. Of course, they can try to earn money honestly by tossing hamburgers or taking office jobs. However, when time is pressed, dirty work, such as making moonshine or other illegal activities, can be a shortcut to saving a family.
However, a life of crime also has its consequences, and in the spirit of Breaking Bad, this could mean the loss of the loved ones the player worked so hard to protect. According to the developer, Family Man includes dozens of missions and multiple endings. Players will have to make difficult decisions while exploring the city of Riverport. Each of them can have far-reaching consequences for both the player’s family and the entire city.
Family Man is the first game developed by British developer Broken Bear. Publisher No More Robots, meanwhile, is best known for indie games like adventure RPGs Not Tonight and Not Tonight 2, downhill mountain bike sim Descenders, and strategy RPG Yes, Your Grace. She also published a clothing-based, retro-inspired FPS game Fashion Police Squad, which was released on Steam last month. Other No More Robots games include the indie games Hypnospace Outlaw, Nowhere Prophet, Let’s Build a Zoo, Heist Simulator, and TombStar.
Family Man is rated Mostly Positive on Steam with 78% positive reviews. The PC version retails for $19.99, and the publisher has confirmed that it will be the same price on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. We hope that Family Man will have the same positive reception on consoles as it did on PC.
