Small Radios Big Televisions is the latest game from indie developer FIRE FACE and published by Adult Swim Games. This is purely an exploration game where you delve deep into deserted factories tower over a forgotten world, their dark corridors a resting place for age-old machinery. Explore these abandoned locations while solving puzzles and collecting cassette tapes that transport you to mysterious new places filled with wondrous sights and sounds.
Below is about 30 minutes of gameplay from Small Radios Big Televisions. I only make it to the second abandoned factory and already, the challenge of finding a solution has ramped up.
As you can see, the graphics are quite good and very well done. I really like the clean, minimalistic art style and all the solid colors. It sorta makes it seem like these factories are scale models of the real thing. Of course when you hit those virtual reality like sequences with the audio tapes, that’s where the art style looks a bit more different and more trippy. Also very well done and overall I love the whole look and feel of this game.
I can’t talk about the game without mentioning the music and the music here is pretty incredible. The developers set out to make a soundtrack that mimicked that of an old audio cassette player and I think they really nailed it. This is one game where you really want to wear headphones to get the full experience.
I stopped the stream after I hit a spot that had me scratching my head. Of course I’m going to go back to it and try to figure out what to do but if any of you have any ideas, let me know in the comments below.
